More Information

Deep in the wooded heathlands of Suffolk's Heritage Coast lies Butley Priory, all that remains of the Augustinian monastery founded in 1171. Set in its own 7 acres, within an area of outstanding natural beauty, the building is a unique example of 14th cantury architecture,and retains something of the peace and serenity of those far away days. Deer and wild life surround the house for nature lovers bird watchers can appreciate the rare seabird and Avocet population. Forestry adjacent to the house offers unlimited riding or walking and there is local sailing at Orford and Woodbridge.Butly Priory is a natural magnet for legend and folklore while the warm and romantic atmosphere is always remarked upon, the mystery of the walled up rooms in the West Wing and the enigma of the silver coffin remain unsolved.In the bedrooms 20th century comfort is assured, all double rooms having private bathrooms and including such luxuries as linen sheets, log fires and goose down duvets. A sitting area, tea and coffee making facilities and a television are provided in a ll the main rooms. The bedrooms have spectacular viwes through gothic and edwardian south facing windows onto the lawns and grdens.Breakfast is served in the magnificent stone vaulted dining room double door open onto the South facing garden, an alternative eating place in the summer - smiling gargoyles look on whilst swallows help themselves to your croissants!
