Snave is a very small hamlet on Romney Marsh in Kent, England with a variety of tourist accommodations and a reasonably dark sky, just 67 miles (108 km) southeast of London, England. Hotels, vacation lodges, and campgrounds are all available within the county and in neighboring cities. However while a beautiful destination for casual gazing, Snave is not recommended for serious observations. Its buildings are a few houses, barns, and store sheds as well as the church of St. Augustine, which holds one service per year at the harvest festival. In spring, the churchyard is heavily clad in daffodils. One EarthSky reader says Snave is situated “in the middle of the countryside, with no street lights.”
