Snowdrops at Hodsock Priory – A Half-Term Day Out

We had three days together just me and the boys and one with something already planned so when it came to Monday evening I was scouring the internet to find a cheap local day out for us as I knew the weather was going to be quite good the next day.  I found out about the snowdrop gardens and woodland walk at Hodsock Priory near Blyth, North Nottinghamshire, just off the A1 between Worksop and Doncaster, so decided to head there for a look around and some fresh air.
