Cheshire Sky at Night
Exclusive for 2017, Brookbank Farm have introduced a new package to celebrate the BBC’s Sky at Night show, and guests can visit the neighbouring Jodrell Discovery Centre which is home to the Lovell Telescope. This mini-break is for all sky at night lovers, astronomy geeks and star gazers. Day one gives you a relaxing start to enjoy the farmhouse, followed by a buffet from Yellow Broom, and perhaps a spot of stargazing if it’s a clear night. Day two brings your day out at the world-famous Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, complete with a 30 minute talk from an official ‘Explainer’, followed by afternoon tea at Jodrell Bank. A catered dinner at the farmhouse follows, before further enjoyment of the property and check out on day three. You will receive a Star Gift Set as a momento of your mini-break, stargazing the Cheshire Sky at Night.
