Observatory facilities


A major redevelopment of The Low Light took place in 2014 and while work continues to maintain and upgrade some aspects of the facilities, the main work is complete and the accommodation is much enhanced on previous years

The facilities include improved water treatment and supply, electric lighting and power supply for charging devices, the three new bedrooms, a shower room, ‘boot room’, lounge and ‘office’, dining kitchen and store room and most importantly – a flushing toilet !

Below are a series of images which give you a flavour of the accommodation provided:

Walking in
Hang your outdoor gear in the boot room
The old living room still as warm and welcoming as ever, the woodburner still going while the gas lamps have been replaced with electric wall lights powered by our efficient solar panel set up
The kitchen facilities are significantly improved and while water remains a scarcity on the island we are able to access and store more than before
Bedrooms in the new extension are roomier and more comfortable than previously with rooms sleeping tow each or with combinations of up to 3 in a room in mixed parties
Solar powered electric fridges provide improved cold storage – no more UHT milk in your tea (at least until the end of your week!)
