The Woodlands – A new village-style event venue with luxury treehouse opens in Leicestershire

The Woodlands
A quirky new village-style event venue and woodland accommodation has opened in the East Midlands, on the border of Leicestershire and Northants. Multi-million pound development, The Woodlands, designed by celebrity favourite, Blue Forest, is now welcoming its first guests for meetings, conferences, launches and corporate parties.

Located in the wooded grounds of event venue, Hothorpe Hall, it provides a distinct alternative venue to the original Georgian manor house. Its official opening in July was attended by former BBC Great British Bake Off winner and local lady, Frances Quinn, who delivered a specially commissioned woodland cake.  

Comprising a meeting/function room, lounge bar and dining room within the venue, along with 23 bedrooms throughout the edge of the woods, The Woodlands offers guests a unique place to hold an event. Owned and operated by Hothorpe Hall Ltd – a successful venue with over 30 years’ trading – guests can expect the same high standards of staff service, quality food and comfortable accommodation.  

The unique timber and glass-built venue is complemented by en suite bedrooms within a series of quirky woodland lodges, snugs and a luxury elevated treehouse, with the positioning of the accommodation around the venue forming the village-style.  

Nicola Firth, Chief Executive of Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands said, “We’re thrilled to be opening The Woodlands, which has been in the pipeline since 2013. It allows us to offer a quirky, modern venue, different to the historic Hothorpe Hall as well as welcome more customers due to increased capacity. We’re pleased to have already taken bookings from big name brands who have booked The Woodlands for meetings and staff summer and Christmas parties. The opening of The Woodlands has created around 15 permanent and casual roles for local people and the construction phase employed the services of many nearby contractors. As The Woodlands business grows, we’re confident that locals will benefit from further employment and training opportunities.”  

The Woodlands has been designed by award-winning Blue Forest, that specialise in treehouses and similar unique structures whose clients include The Eden Project and celebrities.
