Grand new driveway unveiled

22 April 2015

April 22nd marks a milestone for Leicestershire conference venue Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands, as we unveil our grand new driveway – the first phase of the opening of The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall, next month.

The new driveway is approximately 100 metres further up the road from Theddingworth and is much wider and easier to access than our old entrance between the two gate houses. On entering the driveway, there is a stunning view of Hothorpe Hall, and off to the right, The Woodlands can be seen in the distance.

The fabulous new driveway is fully operational from the road entrance, and currently links back up to the old driveway as you enter Hothorpe. This is a temporary measure as we wait for the concrete on the new cattle grid to fully bed in… and yes, the presence of a cattle grid does indeed mean that the return of the sheep is also imminent!  We have missed them as the construction has been going on, but we are expecting them back in the coming weeks when the cattle grid is fully functioning and the machinery has departed.

Meanwhile The Woodlands itself is a hive activity at the moment as the final touches are being made to the development, ready for opening in May.

The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall is a multi-purpose venue constructed in the wooded grounds of Hothorpe Hall. As well as a venue that can be used for conferences, weddings, meetings, product launches and private parties; The Woodlands also has a series of lodges and snugs, for overnight accommodation and a luxury treehouse, perfect for that special occasion. Also, coming soon, look out for our new website showcasing leisure breaks at the Woodlands – watch this space!
