Welcome to Peace Cottage Community Hub
Where You Should Be
Welcome to the Peace Cottage Community Hub, a venue providing support for community groups, located in our Grade II listed building in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.
Within the beautiful 19th century setting our centre includes several large and small rooms as well as a community garden suitable for a range of activities to support individuals and local groups.
Unfortunately the building has been unused for some time and is in need of some repair, but with a little love we can restore it’s purpose as a place of gathering and provide a vital service to the community.
Please visit our GoFundMe page to learn more. Thank you.

The Peace Cottage Community Hub is located in the Hoddesdon Quaker Meeting House built nearly 200 years ago. The project has been developed collaboratively between Quakers and Churches Together in Hoddesdon, Broxbourne and Wormley.
Our community steering group includes representatives from the local council, housing associations, local charities and arts groups. The project coordinator is Dr Zoë Hudson, a social historian and cultural heritage consultant.
The Hoddesdon Quaker Meeting House is part of the Hertford & Hitchin Quaker Area Meeting (Religious Society of Friends – registered charity number 1131894).
