Overview
More
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.

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.
