Visit Hodsock Priory for the winter gardens and snowdrop walk open daily from 10am to 3pm.
Along the half-mile woodland walk, swathes of pristine white snowdrops will be emerging. Visitors can stop and warm themselves next to the roaring campfire, with hot drinks, bacon butties and other treats available for cash purchase at the Woodland Café. Accessible toilets and baby changing facilities are situated at the entrance to Horse Pasture Wood.
Aside from the breathtaking Snowdrop displays, expect to wander through banks of hellebores, carpets of cyclamen and ribbons of golden aconites. Blue irises and orange and red of the acers mixed with the heady scent of sarcococca make Hodsock a garden for the senses. The five acres of formal planted gardens were landscaped in the 1820s and are now overseen by Lady Belinda Buchanan, along with 12 acres of stunning snowdrop and beech covered woodland.
Admission £3 for adults, £2 for Friends of Hodsock, under 18s and wheelchair users go FREE. Cash only, card payments not accepted. Snowdrops 2019 will open daily from Saturday 9th to Sunday 17th February 2019, from 10am to 3pm (last entry). The Estate will be closed at 6pm. Answers to FAQs can be found at www.snowdrops.co.uk
