Hi Oliver,

Just wanted to thank you and the team for putting on such an informative and enjoyable event. I am just back at my desk now but I am sure I will be asking to pick your brains again sometime!!

Thanks again,




Just a quick message to you and Ben for a great tour yesterday, we have had some lovely feedback from our members and we were so surprised with the site, the buildings and the good work you do ,it's a credit to all of you.
The food we had was really lovely, fresh, tasty and plenty of it and hopefully a few will return on a Sunday to sample more.
Hope all your future projects are as successful.

Just to say a big thank you for Saturday night. We all had a wonderful time and the food and venue were great. I can't believe so few people from Bassingham had actually visited Hill Holt! Hopefully some of them may make the vast journey in the future!
Please thank the staff who waited on. I think they did a fabulous job.

Gavin made the party such a magical experience his calm, friendly and exciting hosting is to be truly commended.He made the party fun, informative and totally unique. He went above and beyond and made Leo's party an experience he and his friends will never forget. Hill holt is a real jewel we feel so fortunate to have found you. We will be spreading the word about your amazing work.


Kind regards


Our group had a fantastic time visiting you - lot's of excitement and positive feedback from the young people whose only negative comment was that they wished they could have stayed longer! We have returned to Morden with big ideas for our overflow car park and are really keen to build a campfire area (just like yours!) and invest in some tents to kick-start a social enterprise that will provide funding to continue developing the wildlife garden. It's all very exciting!

Thank you for being so welcoming, accommodating and inspiring.


Best wishes,


Hill Holt Wood were extremely accommodating for our school visit. They had been told what the purpose of our visit was, and really went out of their way to make sure that they were prepared to answer what questions the students had. Gavin did a great talk to the students which explained the history and purpose of Hill Holt Wood, as well as making sure he specifically included information regarding their social enterprise status. Maggie was also great adding information on top of what Gavin had said. We were all then taken on a tour around the main parts of Hill Holt Wood. This enabled the students to see the different facilities that they had to offer. Gavin and Maggie were very knowledgeable about what they showed us, and were able to answer any questions the students had. We then had another informative and valuable talk from the CEO who then did a Q & A with the students. The facilities were great for our visit with plenty of space for the students to eat their lunch. The trip was very valuable and the students came away having lots of information for their coursework. Thank you all for being so helpful and accommodating towards us!


Thanks again,

Harriet and Angela

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Oliver and his team for making our daughters day extra special. The venue is fantastic and the friendly and approachable nature of ALL the staff was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent and I will certainly be recommending Hill Holt to everyone. Thanks for a superb day.

Just back at work today after an amazing 3 weeks of honeymooning round America and honestly we really cannot thank you and your team enough for everything you did for us.  The whole wedding day was completely perfect and we loved every minute.  The work that you and the team put in was brilliant and everybody I speak to now is still singing the praises of the venue, the friendly staff and the delicious food!  I hope that non of it was too stressful for you guys and you managed to chill out afterwards! We’ll definitely be regular visitors of the wood and the café so I’m sure I’ll see you very soon. And in case I haven’t said it enough… THANK YOU xxx


Carolyn Turner


This is just a brief “thank you” e-mail following our visit to Hill Holt wood last night.  Once again you managed to put on fine weather for us! The visit went very well indeed and was thoroughly enjoyed  by all who attended  Your guides Richard and Reuben were excellent - very well informed and very articulate in their explanations as to what is going on at HHW. We also much enjoyed the buffet afterwards and felt it was very well prepared and presented. We look forward to a return visit some time next year.


Ron Glen - CAGE Greater Nottingham



Dear Oliver and the team that made our wedding on 28th September such a wonderful day. Thank you! Thank you for making the wedding preparation a pleasure and being so flexible, helpful and positive throughout. And to everyone who helped on the day.

Oliver you were brilliant, so organised, enthusiastic and professional; so many people have taken the time to tell us how impressed they were with the service. So thank you again.


Kev and Bernice Simpson

Just a really quick email to first of all say a massive thank you for everything you and HHW staff did to make our wedding day so perfect. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, even when the unexpected things cropped up. For three days you all were an immeasurable help as we put everything together, celebrated, and then took it all apart again. I honestly cannot think of the words to say that will thank you enough or give an indication of how pleased we were with everything. I will be sending a thank you card shortly so hopefully you can pass it on to everyone who assisted, but I just wanted to mention it here, too.
We've just returned from our honeymoon (Norway was AMAZING! And we even -briefly - saw the Northern Lights!) and with a bump, we're back to work and daily life.
Thanks once again for everything, Oliver. We - and all our guests - LOVED it. :)
