Great reasons to stay at Hodsock
The Courtyard is within easy reach of many heritage attractions and places to visit. The Counties of Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire are known for historic houses, legendary landscapes and ducal estates and here at Hodsock we are just a few miles from many great heritage sites. Plan a heritage break with our top places to visit.
Hodsock is also a great location to follow the trail of the Pilgrim Fathers and start your own ancestral investigations. Many people visit the estate who have had family members work at Hodsock in the past. Why not stay and see where they lived and worked and share your stories with us. We love to hear them.
