Snowdrops, Christmas Roses and Daffodils are making the grounds of Hodsock Priory look blooming marvellous!
The small estate team and volunteers have been busy preparing for the opening of Snowdrops season at Hodsock this week.
With 17 acres of Snowdrops spread across woodland and gardens, visitors to the estate throughout February can choose to enjoy a relaxed day out in a quintessential English winter garden, or a more strenuous exploration of the woodland.
“We are proud of our four million Snowdrops and thankful to our ‘Friends of Hodsock’ volunteers in helping us tend to the varieties of flower in the grounds,” said George Buchanan, owner and general manager of Hodsock Priory.
“We’re looking forward to planting a new Snowdrop lawn to commemorate 250 years of our family in residence here at Hodsock.”
“Equally as impressive are the flashes of colour and the magnificent scents in the air that you’ll experience as you walk through the grounds. We truly have a winter garden for all senses and an ideal day trip for all ages.”
The Snowdrops 2015 season runs from 31st January to 1st March and gates are open daily at 10am, with last entry at 4pm.
Admission is £5 for adults, £4.50 for groups of 10+, £1 for children over six. Small children and wheelchair users go free. Advance tickets are available online at www.snowdrops.co.uk and it is well worth looking out for 2 for 1 entry tickets being promoted in the local press from the end of January.
