Accommodation Directory

Interest in insects and particularly moth-trapping is increasing and finding suitable places to stay and trap can be difficult. Our unique directory has been designed to help recorders and enthusiasts to locate properties where moth-trapping is welcomed - no awkward detailed explanations needed about your hobby. The properties that are moth-trap friendly are clearly marked with this logo:


We are very grateful to all the contributors who have written for us about mothing hot spots for your interest and information. Atropos supports responsible trapping, including gaining landowners permission wherever relevant.

How to use the Accommodation Directory
On the map below you will find various ‘hotspots’ marked with a red circle. These are areas that are particularly rich in unusual species of butterflies, moths or dragonflies. Clicking on these will take you to a description of the area and it's specialities and also give you details of all the properties that you could stay in that are located nearby. The orange pins are markers for each individual property, when you click on one of these you can read all about the facilities that are offered. Please note: Using the zoom function will enable you to view a red hotspot in more detail and you will see all the available accommodation in that area. We have carefully chosen a selection of properties that will suit all budgets. Currently, we have properties located in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Spain but please check regularly as new accommodation is being added all the time.
