Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands recognised as the best at Leicestershire Tourism Awards

1 December 2016

It’s official our events venues, Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands, near Market Harborough have been awarded overall winner in the innovative business tourism partner category, as part of the prestigious Leicestershire Tourism Awards, developed and hosted by Leicester Shire Promotions.

Our awards entry was by application form which asked us to state six reasons why we’re the most innovative venue in Leicestershire in the meetings, conferencing and exhibitions sector. We also proved our growth and excellent customer retention, showing event booking figures for the past two years.

Our entry was able to prove to the judges that having our two contrasting venues – Hothorpe Hall’s traditional manor house as well as the modern Woodlands event village – set us apart from others in the county! We also showed how our business mix across the year enabled us to optimise our bookings, ensuring a sustainable business for staff and customers alike. Our company and staff ethos, flexibility, improvement, investment, location and setting added further weight to our evidence.

In addition to the business tourism award, we also received a Highly Commended accolade in the category of Most Enjoyable Stay, for The Treehouse at The Woodlands.

Beating off stiff competition from many exceptional tourism partners across the county, representatives from Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands were presented with their awards at a glittering gala ceremony at Leicester’s Athena on November 30th 2016.

Managing Director, Nicola Firth said: “We are over the moon to receive this award. We are constantly striving to give our guests a fantastic experience when they visit Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands. We listen to feedback that we get from our customers and we constantly re-invest and make improvements based on this feedback – so we are delighted to receive this recognition”.
