Historic country house sleeping 16 for celebrations, weddings and business events, near Woodbridge

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Butley Priory, Woodbridge, Suffolk, sleeps 12-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Originally the gatehouse to a 12C Augustinian priory and now a family home, Butley Priory offers a unique sanctuary for those looking to get together for a few days to enjoy the Suffolk countryside with plenty of forest walks on the doorstep.

The house is also ideal for those wanting to celebrate with their nearest and dearest and the Great Hall is set up with a long banqueting table so you can dine under the incredible architecture of the vaulted ceiling. If you are looking for something extra special, our in-house catering team will be more than happy to provide you with a private dining experience.

Butley Priory is also a licensed wedding venue. The house and grounds can be hired on an exclusive use basis and there are two civil ceremony rooms to choose from for those looking to host a wedding in a magical and unique location. Dining and evening receptions can then take place in the Great Hall and we offer a licensed bar facility or alternatively you can hire the house and grounds and put your own marquee on the front lawn and create a truly bespoke day. Our wedding and events team will be on hand to assist you with your plans. Please contact us for a brochure.

The house also offers a perfect setting for location shoots with plenty of natural light and quirky features and also lends itself to corporate away days/weekends with ample space for team building exercises and nearby activities.

There are plenty of nearby places to visit such as the coastal town of Aldeburgh, some fabulous farm shops and Orford and Framlingham Castle are just a few miles away.
