Peace, tranquillity, serenity.......
Nanpantan Hall is the perfect venue for conferences, away days, quiet retreats, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The house is private and peaceful with picturesque views, set in over 16 acres of charming Leicestershire countryside in the heart of the National Forest.
A fine house from the Victorian era with six meeting rooms on the ground floor, a superb modern kitchen and 16 bedrooms. A garden terrace along the back of the house overlooks a split level rolling lawn large enough for a 3 giant hat Tipis. The Coach House has two meeting rooms on the ground floor and 11 bedrooms.
Nanpantan village is two and a half miles west of Loughborough. At the beginning of the 20th century the village consisted of the Hall, a mission church, a day school and about 20 cottages. The derivation of the name seems to be ‘Pantain’ from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning enclosure. Part of the map of Charnwood Forest dated 1754 shows the position of ‘Nan’s Pantain’.

The house was converted to its current size by the Paget family in the latter part of the nineteenth century. A significant member of the family at that time was Arthur Paget, the inventor of the land drainage system. Some of the features of the house from this time have been preserved, such as the wire and bell system for summoning domestic staff, now no longer in use!
Today Nanpantan Hall is owned by the School of Economic Science, a registered charity, founded in 1937.
