Suffolk Wedding Venues Butley Priory

The Times on Sunday describes Butley Priory as
"An extraordinary 14th- century building tucked away in seven acres of Suffolk countryside. Originally the gatehouse to a priory, this mellow stone marvel, complete with gargoyles and flying buttresses, has three guest rooms, two of which — the romantic Yellow Room, with its window seat set into thick stone walls, and the Mary Rose room, with its huge 7ft-square bed — have real, roaring log fires. The beautiful Great Hall has a healthy blaze going, too. For an evening meal, the trendy Suffolk coast is just a few miles away, with the Crown & Castle at Orford the pick of the local restaurants".

The Independent on Sunday
"With a grand, Gothic façade and high vaulted ceilings, Butley Priory must rank as just about the most spectacular, sumptuous bed and breakfast in the country. Set in seven acres of private woodland, a shortish walk from the Suffolk coast, the priory is not, in fact a priory at all but the gatehouse to one demolished by that famous monastery-basher Henry VIII. In winter the priory has its own romantic attractions, not least open log fires in every bedroom".

Classic homes
"The Priory in winter is a very cosy place to be."

The East Anglian Magazine
"If you have ever stepped inside a lofty Gothic cathedral and caught your breath at the height and vastness of it, you will know what it's like to visit Butley Priory... the bedrooms are splendid and imposing."
