About The Woodlands at Hothorpe

Surrounded by woods, wildlife and wonder, on the Hothorpe Estate lies our exclusive-use wedding venue, The Woodlands. The venue boasts two stunning ceremony locations, both indoor and outdoor, each with their own unique charm. Licensed for up to 100 guests for civil ceremonies, with the option for up to 180 evening guests.

This rustic venue really does offer the best of both worlds with two ceremony spaces that bring their own unique charm. The indoor setting features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open, seamlessly connecting with the outdoor space, which includes a Tipi and a fire pit area.

Host your outdoor ceremony in the Hideaway, where the dappled sunlight and birdsong create a magical atmosphere.

From gourmet dining to relaxed buffets, our extensive food and drink options mean you’re sure to find something that suits your
style. Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to leave an impression.

Manicured lawns and wild flowerbeds surround The Woodlands – an ideal location for fun and games, as well as fantastic photo
opportunities. Enjoy drinks and lawn games before gathering everyone together to toast marshmallows around the firepit as the sun starts to set.

Continue the celebrations with your family and friends as night time falls upon the Woodlands. Welcome your evening guests with a hand
crafted cocktail and party the night away to your choice of entertainment.

For a luxurious overnight experience, retreat to The Treehouse, elevated among the trees, offering a memorable stay. Complete with a king size bed, deep bath tub and balcony overlooking miles of the rolling countryside, you can wind down after an extraordinary day in the most idyllic setting.
