Arrival at Hodsock

With a unique heritage in a dramatic setting, Hodsock Priory is the wedding venue to discover.

A Timeless Country Home

From the minute you sweep through the archway of the Tudor Gatehouse, you’ll be transported into another world in this timeless, country home.

Having restored the house to its former glory, George and Katharine Buchanan are the ninth generation of family to live at Hodsock and they invite you into their home.

The Flag on the Gatehouse

One of the first things you’ll see upon arriving at Hodsock is the flag flying from the Tudor Gatehouse.

It is usually the Union flag unless a services wedding is taking place. In this instance, the Navy or RAF ensign flag may be flown, or a regimental/squadron flag.
