Hodsock Priory is a historic country house set in 800 acres of countryside on the border of Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. The restored family home has become a luxury, award-winning, wedding, conference and event venue with breath-taking views, a Gatehouse and acres of gardens, woodland and rolling fields. To support our client’s existing successful wedding business, JDA designed and project managed ten self-catering suites within the self-contained courtyard of an old dairy. The suites, a hybrid of a high quality hotel room and a self-catering cottage, have been hugely successful and have received excellent guest feedback and achieved 5 star bed and breakfast status. The project also recognised its environmental responsibilities incorporating both solar thermal panels and a ground source heat pump system. The project won the “most innovative building project” category of the CHAD business awards with particular reference to the attention to detail. The project has been supported through the Rural Development Programme for England, which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union, and is delivered by East Midlands Development Agency (emda).
“The Hodsock estate and Buchanan family have no hesitation in recommending JDA for any development and they look forward to working together again regularly in the future.”
George Buchanan, General Manager, Hodsock Priory
