We were privileged to be there the night when the moon was at its brightest for the year so did not see as many stars but the moon was a treat in itself. Simply stunning, can’t wait to try it in winter.

Exactly what we were looking for in a relaxing and quiet getaway. A unique experience for couples looking for something different. We will be back again to see the stars. (Mother nature was not at her best on this occasion.)

My partner and I spent one night at SkyScape in August. It was really incredible, such a cleverly designed and interesting space. The outdoor bathtub was an amazing addition. I would highly highly recommend this place, such a special little house and surrounding countryside.

Skyscape is the ultimate place to unwind and just relax with an AMAZING view of the sky and scenery. Was the perfect way to start a mini-break and just 'switch off'.
