The activities at Lodge Hill are accessible for all students. Our favourite was sno-tubing and archery!
The range of activities on offer were fantastic and they were run really well by enthusiastic staff who made the whole thing exciting and fun for all involved. They were very supportive to those children who found some of the activities challenging. I'm really impressed with how the staff picked up on children who had behavioural needs and supported them appropriately. Thank you for a brilliant two days. After what has been a difficult 18 months for our children, you provided them with an excellent experience that they will remember in years to come.
The leaders of the activities were brilliant, engaging and enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable. The skills that the children were using were very clear in the description of the activity and the reflection of what they had learnt was valuable.
The activities provided enabled our students to develop confidence and independence whilst being supported to engage. The activity staff were incredible. Nothing was too much bother; they were friendly, supportive and understood our students' needs really well. They provided the opportunities for so much fun as well as developing social skills, resilience and enabling our students to develop their confidence and self-esteem. All parents have given incredible feedback regarding the trip. We cannot thank you enough. The catering team were also amazing! They were flexible to a student who needed a quick change in menu due to anxiety. Nothing was too much trouble. All staff and students were excellently catered for and the meals were delicious! Thank you.
My son has just taken part in two of the Lodge Hill Holiday Clubs and he absolutely loved it! He was in a bubble with his friends and every one of them came home buzzing from their time at Lodge Hill. I would like to say a massive thank you to the staff that made it such fun for them. The activities sounded fantastic and the value for money superb!
Amazing food! It was lovely seeing the children work together doing the activities and building each others confidence.
Thank you for amazing activities, food and service. It was a great experience and we enjoyed it so much. It was spotless and the lodges and cabins were amazing. My favourite activity was archery it was so much fun. I loved the campfire so much.
A wonderful stay. Friendly, helpful staff who were willing to go the extra mile to make the week as successful and smooth running as possible. The food was great and always served on time.
I wanted to say a big thank you for everything you and your team did to make our event run smoothly, showing a true understanding of what we wanted to gain from the day and resulting in a very successful and enjoyable day. Lodge Hill Centre is in a perfectly peaceful location with beautiful views across the South Downs, which made for a great setting for the hugely fun and interactive team activity and the wonderful BBQ that was laid on that evening out on the patio. We were so lucky with the weather.
Throughout the organisation of the event, you all helped to make it a great day. Everyone was so accommodating to all our requests, no matter how small or last minute. You were all so helpful, efficient and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble. I appreciated the time you took to show me around prior to the day and being able to answer all the questions I raised or referring them on to the relevant person who could advise. This gave me every confidence in choosing to hold our team awayday at Lodge Hill Centre.
The catering was wonderful – from the refreshments and home made cake and biscuits, through to the lunch and BBQ in the evening. The food was of a high standard and very tasty and there was plenty. It was great that you were able to cater for all dietary requirements. Richard did a great job – please do pass on my thanks again to him and his catering team. He certainly went above and beyond in managing our event and I certainly appreciate all he did.
The meeting facilities were perfect for our day – from having the right set up for the meeting, the use of breakout space to the IT support and catering. There was nothing we could fault. Any requests we had during the day were responded to quickly and efficiently. It was reassuring to know there was always someone on hand if we did have any questions or needed help. Your team worked very well together and communication between you all was so cohesive. It was a pleasure working with you and to have your support on our event.
The Oak Room provided our pupils with a quiet and professional workspace, as well as an excellent cinema venue for our movie evenings. The meals and mid-morning/mid-afternoon refreshments were excellent (wholesome and generous), providing our pupils and staff with a lovely break between activities. The newly extended dining area provided the perfect spot for conversation and relaxation.
Lodge Hill is a fabulous venue - our first choice for the past three years now. It's a home-from-home environment, with homemade food, a great sense of community established by the staff, and excellent facilities.
We have attended some of your activity days which we absolutely love & when it came to planning my son's 10th Birthday party we could not think of a better place to hold it than Lodge Hill. I was very impressed from the first enquiry I sent, to Booking, making payment, finalising dietary requirements- fast responses, polite & friendly staff nothing was too much trouble! We chose to add an additional activity onto the party & found your prices excellent! We had the party last Sunday & what a fantastic day we all had! Thank you so much to Kat our instructor for the day she was absolutely fantastic-brilliant with the kids, they loved her! We booked sno-tubing & for you to cater the lunch then added on low ropes as an extra activity & we were not disappointed! Many Thanks to your catering team who put on a lovely lunch for the kids & very impressed with how well you catered for intolerances. We truly had the best day ever & will happily book more parties with you! Thank you so much Lodge Hill!
The children were well supported in the activities by Lodge Hill staff. They all achieved something they were surprised about. There's a great sense of freedom at Lodge Hill. We had a great, memorable time and will definitely return. Thank you for being so accommodating.
At Lodge Hill, we get to spend quality time with our small group and be together away from the outside world.We have enjoyed a lovely weekend with personal service by your staff which is much appreciated.
I really enjoyed running around the lovely site; it was full of amazing plants and animals (I even saw a tiny deer!). I also loved go-karting.
I would like to thank you all once again on behalf of the Trustees of the Winchester Diocese Mothers' Union for giving our 'Away From It All' families a good holiday and also for looking after us so well- as you always do. You always provide the special diets we request and your wonderful home cooked food. Many thanks.
Just wanted to say what a BRILLIANT time we had at your lodges. They were perfect for our needs and your grounds are beautiful and so well kept. As a leader, I felt totally secure and our students felt really safe.
We have had a fantastic time. Staff have been welcoming and helpful and we have been able to have quality teaching time mixed with fun. We will be back next year!
Thank you for the flexibility & sensitivity to every groups needs!
Fantastic site in a beautiful location. We had a wonderful time and the accommodation was great with incredible views and use of the woodland to run our own activities.
I just wanted to send a thank you to your team for another great stay at Lodge Hill. We were really comfortable in the Lodges and it worked really well for us. Everyone slept better than they do at home so the fresh air did us all good! We had a really great sno-tubing session. Thanks for making it all work so well for us.
