The Priory epitomises country house style, with fine furnishings and a distinct elegance. The ancient trees in the park provide the perfect back drop to the long drive which sweeps under the archway of the Tudor Gatehouse, bringing you to the secluded setting of Hodsock.
We have renovated the house using traditional, period and heritage wall papers, paints, fixtures and fittings - the rooms reflect as closely as possible the original 1829 styles.
Lawns, terraces and secluded gardens tempt you outside, where you can create your own magical scene all year round. Established planting, subtle lighting and total tranquillity add to the sense of theatre at Hodsock. If you mention Hodsock to anyone, they will probably say “Snowdrops”. Our collection is famous and truly magnificent in February when we welcome over 10,000 visitors in only 4 weeks.
