The Setting

Butley Priory is a Grade I listed former gatehouse, now a privately-owned luxury wedding and events venue in Suffolk, with four newly refurbished bedrooms sleeping 7 – 11. Additional accommodation can be found in the Farmhouse (sleeps 24) and the Cottage (sleeps 4 + 2). Surrounded by woodland, close to the pretty market town of Woodbridge and with the Suffolk coast on its doorstep. Butley Priory is situated just two hours from London and 90 mins from Stansted.

An exceptional boutique venue, perfect for smaller, luxury weddings up to 80 guests or add a tipi for larger, festival-style celebrations – all expertly coordinated by the most friendly and professional team. Stay for two nights, become a part of Butley’s history and immerse yourself in the character, curiosity and glorious surroundings of this enchanting gatehouse.

The Vibe

Yours exclusively, enjoy an exceptional drive through the forest which leads you to Butley Priory, appearing majestically as the jewel in Suffolk’s crown.

The Great Hall, with its vaulted ceiling and magnificent stonework, is an exquisite intimate space for your ceremony while the South Garden provides a beautifully enclosed setting for your drinks reception. Up on the first floor, you’ll discover four romantic bedrooms, furnished with pretty fabrics, four poster beds and roll top baths – all with views of the surrounding Suffolk countryside.

Seating up to 80 guests for the wedding breakfast, the space is once again magically transformed for the evening celebrations, where you’ll discover the Priory makes for the best party house ever! Wait until your guests discover the secret bar…

Just a short walk away, their luxury Georgian farmhouse sleeps an additional 24 guests in twelve bedrooms, and the very cute Priory cottage sleeps up to six.

If you’re seeking a beautifully intimate, light and airy venue steeped in history for your celebration, Butley Priory has it all in abundance. With the help of their professional and friendly team, you’ll be expertly guided from start to finish, ensuring your day is every bit as wonderful as you imagined.
