The Left Luggage Office is a stargazers paradise. This elegantly appointed apartment is situated on what was once Falstone Station, on the line that linked England to Scotland. In the pretty village of Falstone situated inside the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.

Most Britons live within densely populated areas where light pollution allows only a handful of stars to be seen through an orange glow. Here at The Left Luggage Office you can feast your eyes up to thousands of stars. Among the highlights is the Milky Way. It’s something that the vast majority of us will never see, but within the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park you can view it in all its glory. Use binoculars and you can marvel at its arms stretching out on both sides of its bright central core. This wonder of the universe is 2.5 million light years away! Other astronomical phenomena you can look out for during your stay include Aurora Borealis (more commonly known as the Northern Lights) and the occasional spectacular meteor shower. These shooting stars are grains of dust from the tails of comets burning up when they enter the Earth’s atmosphere. To continue your stargazing odyssey there is the Kielder Observatory. This hugely popular attraction is located on the top of Black Fell, just up the road near Kielder Village, and is run by the Kielder Observatory Astronomical Society. The observatory is a must visit for those wanting to make the most of their Dark Sky stay.

The Left Luggage Office is the perfect location to enjoy all the Northumberland countryside has to offer. This bijou property is tastefully furnished offering stylish holiday accommodation for couples. Built on one level, there is an open plan living/dining/kitchen area with underfloor heating throughout. It has a separate double bedroom and a contemporary shower room. The property is decorated with a Christmas theme during the festive season. As well as stargazing The Left Luggage Office is the perfect base to enjoy the many outdoor activities at Kielder Water, northern Europe’s largest man-made lake and Kielder Forest, northern Europe’s largest man-made forest. Whether it’s long or short walks, off-road mountain biking, taking a ferry trip or just relaxing in this beautiful corner of Northumberland, there is something at The Left Luggage Office for everyone. Shop, pub and restaurant 520 yards.
