Specially Converted


For up to 2 adults & 2 children

Allow your imagination to soar as you picture being up in the air on far-flung missions in our specially converted Lynx Helicopter!

This incredibly unique and unforgettable experience began with a 1982 Westland Lynx XZ676 -which has been specially converted into a cosy yet comfortable and modern overnight accommodation. The Lynx belonged to the British Army and has flown in places such as Kosovo and the Gulf War, although now resides in a serene and beautiful spot at Ream Hills, in the heart of the Lancashire countryside.

Exciting Activities

Imagine the look on the little ones (or big ones!) faces when they discover where they are holidaying – they will even receive a special named certificate to cherish the experience and show their friends.

The Helicopter comfortably sleeps up to two adults and two children in a specially designed double ‘bunk’ at the rear tail, with a pull out sofa bed for the children in the main compartment. There is a small sink area with a kettle, microwave and mini fridge.

Attached to the Helicopter there is a private decking with seating to enjoy al fresco drinks and dining. Use of the nearby on-site toilet and shower block is included.

Please remember to pack any bedding including pillows, a duvet or sleeping bag, sheets and towels you may need during your stay. These are not provided in this Glamping accommodation.

If you know someone that would love this experience we also have gift vouchers for 1 and 2 night stays available here.

It was my daughter's birthday and she asked to go camping. I knew at the first sight of a spider the camping would be over in an instant 😆 so being an aircraft engineer staying in a Helicopter was the choice for us. My two children had never been inside one never mind spend the night in one. They absolutely loved it. They couldn't wait to go back to tell their friends at school. Really thought the certificates the received for staying in the Lynx Helicopter was a nice touch for the them. One really happy father. 5 Stars from me.......and my children.

Brilliant one night stay

Had an amazing stay in the helicopter. My 10year old loved it and couldn’t wait to tell his friends. The lady on reception when we arrived was lovely and happy to help If we needed it. There was a small little cafe were we got breakfast before leaving. We also visited the birley arms in for tea and was lovely pub with live music and small play area.

Beautiful location, fantastic accommodation

We stayed in the helicopter with our grandchildren it was a great experience, the site is immaculate, peaceful and very well laid out. The helicopter has a TV, kettle, microwave and mini fridge with a lovely deck to sit and enjoy the wildlife we saw many birds and wild hares. Checking in was easy all staff super friendly and the amenities super clean and well presented I highly recommend this site and we will certainly look at another trip here next year.
