Foxhill is set in approx 70 acres of Cheshire woodland which incorporates an arboretum containing several species of rare plants and trees. Part of the site is a designated area of outstanding natural woodland. The vistas from the crest of the wood take in the Mersey Estuary and the Welsh Clwydian Hills.
Please note - unfortunately the grounds are currently closed to both guests and the public until further notice due to storm damage. Access into the woodlands is strictly prohibited. Future access will be reviewed periodically once a new management plan is in place.
The grounds give an opportunity for the keen birdwatcher to see woodpeckers, jays, buzzards and other birds of prey. Foxes, badgers and field-mice can often be spotted, too.
Some of the trees in the Arboretum are among the finest specimens in the country, and include birches, redwood, elm, eucalyptus, pines, ‘monkey-puzzles’ and a Gingko Biloba from Japan– the latter often called ‘a living fossil’.
Foxhill Woodland and Arboretum might take a day to explore, but could take a lifetime to get to know. The arboretum is an undiscovered gem, which helps to make Foxhill one of the most unique conference venues in the whole of the UK.
Please come and explore it with us. Please bring appropiate footwear.
