Snowdrops at Hodsock Priory

Today we visited Hodsock Priory for a walk around the woodland and gardens that are currently covered in snowdrops. The sight is spectacular and with different events on over the snowdrop period there is plenty to eat, see and keep you busy.

This weekend was the Food and Country Fair which was host to many wonderful local food producers and products.

The walk is perfect for children and with the weather being a little snowy recently it gives you the opportunity to put on the wellies and wrap up warm, although today was the perfect spring day with the sun shining through the trees.

Pretty bridges to walk over
Lots and lots of snowdrops
Pretty woodland
The gorgeous house and gardens

Lovely gothic revival chimneys
The cost is £5 per adult, free for under 6s and then £1 for children between 6-16 so it doesn't break the bank. Onsite in the Snowdrop Village is a Tea Room, Plant Sale and Gift Shop along with History Corner for daily talks. There was also a treasure trail for children which gets their little brains working in order to open the safe at the end and win a little prize.

If you go on a Tuseday you can get a free tea, just print out the voucher from the website, so why not pop along this half term.
