Located on the border of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, The Woodlands is a unique venue nestled within expansive grounds. Licenced for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, it really does offer the best of both worlds. With ceiling to floor glass doors that slide open, lots of outside space and a fire pit area, you can truly make the most of the surroundings.
Indoors, the venue is made up of three large, light and recently refurbished rooms, with the bar and lounge area in the centre. Outdoors, the space offers the perfect opportunity for celebratory drinks, lawn games or outdoor dining.
Surrounding the venue is guest accommodation lodges and snugs, and further into the woods you will find The Treehouse, which makes the most amazing newlywed suite.
The food and drink options are as flexible and fun as the venue. With everything from canapés to a wedding breakfast BBQ or a or beer table to a gin bar, you’re sure to find something to suit you.
We also offer the Intimate Wedding Package, designed for 30 people, for those who want to celebrate with close family and friends on a smaller scale. Further guests can be added at a supplement charge. Find out more atwww.hothorpe.co.uk/woodlandsintimateweddings.

Thank you for everything!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything and for all the help and support with our day and little changes or requests we had. It all ran so well and both said that the day was everything we hoped for and more than.Sent on 30/09/2019
Everyone kept telling us how the canapés were the best they had ever had at a wedding and the burgers went down a storm in the evening that by the time I knew what time it was they had all gone!
We have had so many of our friends and family, but also all of our suppliers, say what a great venue The Woodlands. I think because it is so separate you feel like you are somewhere else completely and the atmosphere there is just amazing. On the morning it was all so calm and relaxing while getting ready and we were so thrilled to be able to stay the evening before and we think that this just made our day even more special for us and the weather held out for us with the exception of 5 minutes of rain which I can live with :).
Again, just want to say a huge thanks to all the staff on the day who did a fantastic job and really delivered the day that we hoped for.

Thank you so much to everyone
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our big day so special…Sent on 30/09/2019
All the staff on the day were amazing. We didn’t even notice them running around changing the venue from ceremony to dinner to evening. Everyone was professional and helpful!
We couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Had so many people compliment on the food and how it’s the best they’ve ever had. In fact, one of my favourite memories is my bridesmaid shouting how this is the best dessert she’s ever had at our wedding breakfast!!
So many people asked where we’d found this gem of a venue and how beautiful the whole setting was in The Woodlands.
We also used so many of your recommended suppliers from your open days including Victoria’s Cake Company, Princess Occasions and Bird and the Bad Man for our evening entertainment and all of them were flawless so thank you again for that!
It was everything I’ve ever dreamed off since being a little girl and I wish I had an excuse to hire The Woodlands again. I’m already planning on booking The Treehouse for a nice little break.
Thank you so much!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
From the bottom of our hearts thank you! It was the most perfect and magical day and better than we could have ever imagined. Thanking whoever up there was looking down on us on Friday with the weather as it made the biggest difference! Everything about the day was perfect, the way everything flowed it didn’t feel like there was any waiting around or awkward breaks.Sent on 30/09/2019
We are so grateful for everything you did for us and we had so so many lovely compliments saying that our wedding had set the bar for all future weddings.
