There’s nothing more perfect for a romantic honeymoon or couples getaway than seeing a shooting star with someone special. It’s an absolute back to nature experience too. But a meteor shower – now that’s a whole new kind of light show! So picture this…

You are lying back in your traditional Finnish wooden hot tub in steaming spring water that is a constant 39°C. Behind you sits your luxury Finnish log cabin and stretching out in front a totally unspoilt 100 acre lake. Champagne glass in hand, you savour the long evening of drama that the night sky puts on for you both. The reflection of the stars on the still lake surface doubles the atmosphere. Your totally secluded getaway is hidden from the world.

After seeing the show, reach for your luxury white towels and snuggle up in front of your clear view log fire…

To make this happen simply book one of our getaways and escape on a Cotswolds holiday at one of the below dates. Great with loved ones or a group of friends. We can’t guarantee a cloudless night but we can promise a Cotswolds sky free of light pollution. Meteor showers are like fishing – You do it, you experience nature – and one day you may just catch what you’re there for.
