I have used the lodges at Forrest Hills for my Ecology courses since 2010. It is a perfect venue for us – easy to get to, picturesque and a relaxed atmosphere. All our attendees are positive in their feedback and commented on what a great learning environment it was.
Gail Armstrong, The Bat Ladyy
Lancaster put on a very impressive show. The grounds, facilities and catering were all cited as seriously impressive and, as I expected, a number of the delegates had not been here before. Every member of staff involved over the 2 days displayed their pride for Lancaster and a willingness to go the extra mile to make sure that everything went well.
