About Hodsock Priory

Hodsock Priory is a country house wedding venue near Blyth on the border of Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. The estate has been occupied since the bronze age, with the first record of a house dating to 1086. From there, the house and estate passed through several well connected aristocratic families, including the Cliftons, who built the Tudor gatehouse that still stands at Hodsock’s entrance, and the Cressy family, who entertained three kings: Henry II, John, and Edward I. The house was restored to its former glory by the Buchanan family in 1829, whose descendants had lived there since 1765. The family still live there today, the current generation led by Sir Andrew and Lady Belinda.

All weddings are exclusive-use. While the interiors have been modernised, they still retain a strong sense of Hodsock's history, the result being both a stunning and quintessentially English wedding venue. Civil ceremonies, which Hodsock is licensed to conduct, are held in one of several rooms. The Panelled Hall speaks most strongly to the venue’s Tudor history. Adjacent to this is the Buchanan Hall, offering neutral decorations that are waiting to be customised. The surrounding gardens, which feature a Grade I listed Tudor gatehouse, then make for the perfect backdrop to the all important wedding photos.

The wedding breakfast menu can either be designed from scratch alongside the head chef and his team or chosen from a carefully curated pre-selected range. This is then supported by an extensive wine cellar, offering something to suit most palates. A wine pairing guide is also provided with each course. Guests can stay over in one of the house’s six rooms, each of which is decorated in keeping with Hodsock’s history and rural setting. The couple can use the Wedding Suite, complete with a free standing bath and dual sinks.
