Top 5 places in North Devon to watch the Perseid meteor showers

If you are at one of our Devon holiday parks this week or you are a passionate stargazer like me then this week gett ready for one of the biggest meteor showers of the year - between 11th-13th August! Under perfect conditions you could witness over 200 meteors every hour and with a large amount of secluded countryside North Devon here's my top 5 stargazing spots in the area. 

1) Hartland - A timeless and stunning place for viewing the biggest meteor shower of the year. 

2) Wistlandpound Reservoir - The lack of light makes the Exmoor reservoir the perfect place for stargazing. 

3) Saunton- Enjoy the meteor shower on Saunton beach whilst watching the sunset after a good surf or a leisurely stroll. 

4) Bideford - Take pleasure of the quiet and tranquil surroundings in the little white town with stunning views of the River Torridge.

5)  Bradworthy - Home to some of the darkest skies, Bradworthy's wind turbines are dwarfed by the Milkyway and provides an excellent stargazing spot. 

If you are at one of our Devon holiday parks and you see Perseid meteor showers please visit my Facebook page and post your pictures for me to see!
