Ideal home for a peaceful, relaxing holiday

August 2019

My daughter and I went to celebrate my 60th Birthday. . The moment we arrived we received such a warm welcome from the owners Paul and Babs (Who gave us a Big hug) . After being stuck on the M5 and various hold ups it was much appreciated . Homemade scones,jam and clotted cream awaited us in the Observertory along with a bottle of Prosecco. And the hot tub all ready and waiting for us. We knew we had made the right choice. Peace and Tranquillity where what we wanted and the Observatory didn't disappoint. A totally Enchanting experience from start to finish. We can't wait to return.

April 2019

The observatory exceeded our expectations in every aspect. It was the perfect getaway. The hosts Paul and Babs were wonderful, and even let us have a look around their other property 'The Tabernacle'. We would highly recommend either of the places they are both out of this world.

If possible our stay at Frieda and the Moon was even more magical than our stay a year ago. Both the observatory and the tabernacle are exquisitely decorated and the location is the perfect escape in such an idyllic setting. We would give it 6 stars if we could. Sophie and James
