Overview

Hodsock Priory is a wedding venue on a private estate surrounded by North Nottinghamshire countryside and easily accessible from the A1 and M1 at Blyth. Nationally famous for its winter garden and displays of snowdrops - open in February only each year. Wrap up warm and enjoy a walk in the woods then have a cup of tea a slice of home-made cake by the bonfire.

Having visited Hodsock for the snowdrops we decided on a return visit to see the bluebells. If anything, the carpets of bluebells and swathes of forget-me-nots nudged the snowdrops into second place making us wonder why the bluebells days were far less popular. The masses...More

Dear 581kerryc, what a lovely review - thank you for being so kind about our superb team of staff and for supporting us for so many years. The bluebell opening may well grow as they are sensational and the weather is usually better in April/May.

It's to protect our wildlife. Many visitors bring their dogs and run them in the Park before leaving them safely in their cars and coming into the gardens and the woods.
