A universe of wonder awaits you at UTLT, so why not top off a great evening of good food and good company with a peep through our powerful telescope for some amateur astronomy and some serious star-gazing and cosmic celestial sights!

Let Nikki take you on a journey of discovery through the heavens above whenever the skies are clear and the atmosphere is dry and wind-free. In the summer months, this can mean quite late-night gazing, starting around 10pm. In the winter, it can all happen earlier as the nights are darker for longer. A hobbyist since arriving in France, she’ll share her passion for star-gazing and point you in the direction of some truly amazing sights of stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and clusters

Leave the light-polluted urban skies behind! Instead, come to Under The Lime Tree and allow yourself to be allured by the skies above!

Soak up the richness of a dark clear night and be charmed with close encounters of our Moon, or humbled by the incomprehensible truth that a distant light in the Milky Way has travelled for millennia just to reach our eyes!

.....Fabian & Monique
Testimonial:

"Thank you so much for so many things...for staying in your beautiful home, for restoring our soul, for refuelling our imagination, for all the yummy meals, the hidden secret places to be, the hot tub and for star gazing. If we get lost, we know to look for the North Star to find you! "

.....Laura & Dee
Testimonial:

"An amazing November evening outdoor hot tub watching the deer followed by shiatsu massages. Dinner of delicious Thai pumpkin curry...cooking that top restaurants would find difficult to beat! The evening was topped off with star-gazing and catching some superb shooting stars!"
