George & Katharine Buchanan have renovated Hodsock Priory. It's time to make a visit to the famous Hodsock Snowdrops and see what they have been doing. There is an area outside of the gardens which is available for picnics and the walking of dogs. The Snowdrop Gardens are normally open every day in February. But you can still enjoy Hodsock Priory by booking a short break in one of their newly renovated cottages.
Please telephone 01909 591 204 in advance to check conditions. For up to date information or queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Wrap up warm & wear FLAT shoes!
Wide choice of winter flowering plants and bulbs for sale.
"A magical sight you will never forget - a myriad of flowers in the five acre gardens plus a half-mile walk in the woods with carpets of snowdrops to delight you."
