Wheel Farm Cottages are 10 pretty stone cottages and a spacious farmhouse, in a quiet valley only a few miles from some great beaches.

The cottages are on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, the first International Dark Sky Reserve in Europe, making it perfect for stargazing, and each comes equipped with its own planisphere and binoculars to help identify the constellations. The offer is valid for arrivals on March 29 or April 5. Visit www.wheelfarmcottages.co.uk or call 0800 247 1445.
