Rich in history

With beginnings that date back to 900AD when Viking, Ude Torp, found his new settlement by navigating his boat up the River Welland, Hothorpe Venues is certainly rich in history. Hothorpe was enjoyed as a family home to various aristocracy for centuries, with details known up to the late 1800s.

Hothorpe Hall, the events centre

Hothorpe, as we know it now, began in 1984 when three Christian families bought a rundown building where their vision was to provide retreat and refreshment for fellow Christians.

Although Hothorpe is now structurally and commercially quite different, Christian organisations still enjoy the facilities for their varied events, as well as wedding, corporate meeting and function customers.
