Meetings and Conferences

meetings and conferences
Forrest Hills is a truly unique rural venue, purpose built for meetings, training events and small conferences. It has that ‘away from it all’ feel, yet it is located only minutes from junction 33 of the M6 motorway and within easy reach of the West Coast railway network in Lancaster.

It provides on-site car parking and has full disabled access and facilities.

Forrest Hills recognise the need for flexibility for events and offer a variety of solutions, allowing organisers to maximise their budget and achieve a bespoke package for their event. Together with our event co-ordinator Eileen Saunders and the Lancaster University Conferences team we will work with you to establish your event objectives and specifications to create a personalised package tailored to suit your needs.

Delegates attending meetings here are encouraged to make full use of the beautiful setting, lunchtime walks around the venues grounds and lakes being a regular feature.

Our stunning new Resource Centre offers the Reed room and the Banton room, both of which are fully serviced.

Feedback provided by Professor Sheila Payne

Forrest Hills is the ideal venue for offsite working for the University. It feels close to the main hub of our activity yet at the same time it ensures a fresh environment which facilitates productive and thoughtful working. We use Forrest Hills for writing retreats, team building, away days and other events designed to enhance productivity and outputs at the University. The participants enjoy the environment, the attentive service and the food, which is always of a high quality. The feedback is always excellent and the venue is highly recommended.
