Information For Beeston Manor

Beeston Manor is a multi-award winning family run and owned venue set in 140 acres of land at Hoghton near Preston.

Our venue is a beautifully converted 16th Century barn complete with oak beams and sandstone walls.

Beeston Manor is without doubt one of the finest and enchanting wedding venues in Lancashire.

Romantic and full of character, your reception will be held with the backdrop of breath taking country side views, your photographs taken overlooking the beautiful Beeston Wood (and in the corn fields if in season), and the whole occasion can be celebrated with total exclusivity.

Our venue is perfect for hosting small intimate weddings to larger parties of up to 125 during your reception and 200 for your evening reception.

The style of Beeston Manor is very simplistic and neutral, making all colour schemes work perfectly! Our beautiful barn oozes atmosphere with sandstone wall features and gorgeous oak beams.

Our delicious food is all home cooked on site by head chef Julie Bickerstaffe-Smith and her team. Julie is more than happy to provide you and your wedding guests anything you wish (even if it is not down on our Wedding Breakfast and Evening Buffet Menus) – Just ask!

We have fourteen en-suite bedrooms available, a licence to hold civil ceremonies, a restaurant and two function rooms which have the backdrop view of stunning panoramic views.

The venue is also close to the M6, M61 and M65 motorway networks and also has the facility of a helicopter pad.

As a family-run venue, we take pride in our work and treat every wedding as our own.

Our experienced wedding co-coordinators are here to help every step of the way during your wedding planning. We are open to all of your ideas, so please contact us if you wish to have something ‘a little different’ to our usual package on your special wedding day.

A little history - Beeston Manor is a Grade II listed sandstone building which has been restored and converted by the Bickerstaffe Family with stone walls and exposed beams. The barn was originally used for storage of local farmer’s crops. The building has literally been hand made by John Bickerstaffe and his father Frank over 12 years and has the most special atmosphere you could possibly wish for. The 16th Century Barn has many of the original features exposed, including the beautiful oak beams and the locally quarried pink sand stone. The structure of the wardrobes in the bedrooms were made from trusses and the fireplace from handmade bricks. Other internal features of Beeston Manor have come from other demolished buildings where materials have been recycled and re-used including ones from Preston City Centre. The Woodland and Oakland Rooms built in the year 2000 mirrors the building technique of the original barn. For example, the Oakland Room beams where made from green oak. Sixteen trees from Beeston Wood where felled by John and Frank! A mobile saw was brought on site to cut up the timber, and a crane to lift them into place to make the roof structure. The building technique used for the roof structure is the same construction method as the listed barn has with wooden pegs used to secure the timbers in place.
The entrance hall has the original stone flags which was the thrashing area for the corn. The story of the evolution of Beeston Manor from a redundant farm barn in 1985 to a busy vibrant venue is remarkable. If you are lucky to meet Mr Bickerstaffe Senior, AKA Grandad, he would be delighted to tell you all the fascinating stories that created Beeston Manor!
