Forrest Hills

Forrest Hills is an award winning scenic venue which can be used for weddings, meetings, conferences, corporate events, management training and much more.

They are situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland in a naturally beautiful, relaxing, country setting, yet are still close to the city of Lancaster, the major road network and the main West Coast railway line. (see map).

Set in 180 acres, Forrest Hills have a green outlook.  Both mankind and wildlife are at peace here.

Built by the Newsham family who have been here for over 50 years they extend a welcome to all their future clients to come and discover their hidden gem and experience its distinctive character.

In Spring 2016 Lancaster University were lucky enough to add this stunning venue to their Conference & Events portfolio, keen to ensure that the unique charm and character of the venue remains.
