Hodsock Priory is a historic country house wedding venue set in 800 acres of countryside on the border of Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.

This carefully restored family home is an award-winning luxury wedding and event venue, surrounded by breathtaking views and presented within luxurious gardens and rolling fields.

Whether you are looking to hold a wedding, celebration or corporate event, Hodsock Priory offers a unique setting and an award-winning team to take care of every last detail.


From the minute you enter through the spectacular Tudor Gatehouse, you’ll be transported into another world.

The house has been lovingly restored back to its former glory of 1829 by Sir Andrew and Lady Buchanan, the eighth generation of the family to reside at Hodsock Priory.

From the Panelled Hall to the Pavillion, the main house truly embodies the grandeur and luxury of its origins, offering a variety of indoor spaces for weddings and receptions, private dining, corporate events and more.


In the set of the Prince Regent, Colonel Henry Francis Mellish owned 40 racehorses and won the St Leger at Doncaster in 1804 and 1805. In 1806, he placed his last bet on whether a pat of butter would hit the ceiling of the dining room when he flicked it up there with his knife. He was so drunk when he fired it that it failed to reach the target. Leaving him millions of pounds in debt, he sold his house Blyth Hall and came to live a quiet life down the road here at Hodsock with his sensible sister Ann.

In 1817, Henry died and Ann began landscaping the gardens and designing the Georgian wing of Hodsock Priory – the Library, Ante Room and House Bar.

In 1854, William Leigh Mellish inherited Hodsock from his cousin Ann. He died soon after and his widow, Mrs. Margaret Mellish started Hodsock Priory’s second largest remodelling with the addition of house bedrooms, dressing room and the Buchanan Hall. Margaret was Canadian and a daughter of Sir Samuel Cunard of the luxury cruise company. Our interiors and gardens remain in this style today.
