Specially Converted


At Ream Hills

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.

Established in 2015, Ream Hills is a hidden countryside gem. Thoughtfully developed on 160 acres of green farmland and with a large natural spring-fed lake, there are lovely open views to enjoy all around. Our touring park offers 60 hard standing gravel pitches, all with electric hook-up and some fully serviced super pitches. Each pitch can comfortably accommodate a touring caravan, motorhome or campervan along with your car and awning or gazebo.

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.

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.

My 2 children and I stayed a night in the Helicopter. We had a fantastic time. A lot of thought had gone into converting it into something that was perfect to stay overnight in. Such a unique memory for my children after a crazy year. Thankyou.

We had an awesome time and made lots of memories that will never be forgotten. My little boy was so excited and had the time of his life. Spacious enough and more amenities than expected made it a more than pleasant stay.
