We are in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains, one of the best places in the UK to enjoy stargazing because of the clean air and lack of light pollution.
The darkest skies are around the time of the New Moon each month, when the lack of moonlight means thousands of stars are visible.
This timelapse photo by Dafydd Wyn Morgan, shows how the stars appear to rotate around the North star as the earth gently turns on its axis.
In the cabin, we provide binoculars and a guidebook about the night sky.
