About

Burtonfields Hall is located 15 minutes from the centre of York. This beautiful family run estate is situated in acres of glorious parkland offering views up to the Yorkshire wolds. Burtonfields is and always will be an exclusive use venue meaning its beautifully decorated interior and perfectly manicured outdoor spaces are all at your disposal, enabling you to host the wedding of your dreams.

Origionally the home of the Bush family, Burtonfields has been recently renovated to become a wedding and events venue. As the house was designed for entertaining it made perfect sense to open the doors to the public so they could hold the most special events at the Hall.With a fantastically intimate feel, guests will be enamoured by the charm of Burtonfields as although grand, everyone always feels at home and that is exactly what we want!

Facilities and Capacity

Licensed for ceremonies of up to 120 in the magnificent Arts and Crafts billiard room or in the sumptuous gardens the attention to detail throughout the property is second to none. After a gorgeuous ceremony guests make their way to the south facing terrace or to the beautifully adorned reception rooms for post-ceremony drinks. If dining up to 76, the billiard room is transformed into the most irresistable banquet hall and if dining between 76 and 120 a marquee will have been set up on the lawn a couple of days before. Once the feast is finished the billard room is opened up so you can dance the night away!

Services Offered

Wholeheartedly a family business William Bush, the current owner, prides himself on being on hand at all times from initial contact, to the planning process and all the way through to the coordination on the day of the wedding itself!

Exceptional wedding venue

Burtonfields Hall is an amazing venue to choose for your wedding. The house itself has so much character, and Will really goes above and beyond to make you feel as though it’s your house for the duration of the wedding. From before we booked our wedding, Will was always on hand to answer any queries or concerns we had, and this was consistent right up until the end of our wedding weekend. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and we knew exactly what was going to / needed to happen for all the finer details of the wedding. Will was also a very calming presence, especially on the morning of the wedding. Ensuring everything ran to time, making sure everyone knew where they needed to be, nothing felt like it would be missed. The rest of the staff at Burtonfields Hall on the day of the wedding were tremendous, and we can’t speak highly enough of them. They were attentive and always happy to help, with the bar staff always being on hand to help bring the party. The way the staff all interacted with other suppliers, such as the caterers demonstrated their professionalism, and helped ensure the day ran smoothly.
The rooms at Burtonfields Hall are absolutely gorgeous. The thought that has gone into decorating them all, each with their own unique style and decoration is so special. All our guests have commented on the rooms, both in terms of comfort and space, but also how relaxed they felt in the rooms because of this and the decoration.
All in all, we honestly couldn’t recommend Burtonfields Hall enough for a wedding.

Some of our guests have commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to....and we completely agree!

We just got married at Burtonfields Hall and it was literally the best day of our lives! This venue is beyond perfect. We had it all to ourselves it from Friday until Sunday with our immediate families staying with us in the stunning bedrooms. Everything has been lovingly refurbished by the owners to a 5 star standard. Our ceremony took place in the Billiard Room on the Saturday afternoon with 90 guests and lead on to a drinks reception on the picturesque terrace with a pianist, exquisite dining, a magician, a ceilidh band and disco dancing into the night! We honestly could not have wished for a better day. We had looked at a few other venues and they all felt a bit tired and ‘hotel-ly’, like wedding conveyor belts. Burtonfields became our home for the weekend, having free rein to spend quality time with our loved ones in a relaxed and beautiful setting.
Will the owner was completely brilliant from the day we booked a year ago to the big day itself, he helped guide us on our wedding planning journey and seemed just as excited as we were about it! Some of our guests have commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to....and we completely agree!

Perfect from start to finish

My husband and I got married at Burtonfields Hall (BH) and had a truly fantastic day. After struggling to find a suitable venue we came across BH and felt it was very good value. It's also extremely welcoming on a personal level, especially when compared with other venues, many of which appear to be 'wedding factories'. The owner, Will, was on hand from the start. We live in the South so we did a lot of the planning via email/phone. Will's communication is quick and thorough so there was never any waiting or worrying. No matter how large or small the query he was quick to get back to us, even after the wedding when we had a few things to follow up. On the day Will worked extremely hard to ensure the day went as planned - his attention to detail is impeccable. We felt relaxed knowing we were in safe and caring hands.
The venue itself is designed and decorated to a very high standard. The rooms are beautiful. Everything has been thought of - from a music system that plays in all downstairs rooms to perfect lighting, fantastic kitchen space for both caterers and guests, gorgeous toiletries, beautiful planting - I can't fault any of it. It is clear that the BH team have high standards and care deeply about their venue and the experience of their guests.
We wanted a relaxed day and as soon as I walked in on the morning of our wedding I felt that way. Getting ready with my friends and family in the Bridal Suite was a memory I'll never forget. Everyone floated around the house, using the facilities as if they were our own. This relaxed homely feel meant everyone was calm and just so happy.
We said 'I do' in the Billiard Room, Will gave us choices and made suggestions on how we might like it laid out and steered us away from some bad choices. His experience shone through. The room looked amazing and was such an intimate place to share our ceremony with those close to us.
Initially I was worried about having to choose a caterer that the venue approved of, however, this meant we ended up with someone very special. Their relationship with Will and his team at BH was well established and meant everything ran smoothly. Dom's Kitchen prepared a fully vegetarian/vegan buffet and street food for us. No-one missed the meat and we had so many compliments on the spread.
The outside grounds made the perfect setting for photos, crochet, drinks and conversation throughout the day and night. The kids quickly made the grass lawn their place, playing happily whilst the adults chatted.
If you're looking for a homely, welcoming venue which is beautiful inside and out then I would highly recommend Burtonfields Hall. Will will look after you from start to finish. We can't thank him enough.

Two weeks after our wedding at Burtonfields Hall and it’s safe to say…we’re still on cloud 9. What a venue!

It is so beautiful throughout and the grounds are just immaculate. It provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding and having the room for friends and family to stay over the night before and the night of made it all the more special.

Everywhere you look is just stunning.
From the intricate wallpaper, beautiful bathrooms, antique furniture to the grand fireplaces…no detail has been forgotten about.

We particularly loved having our wedding breakfast in the marquee. The fairy lights and outlook onto the Hall’s grounds gave it such an intimate, cosy feel.

Will the co-ordinator is also fantastic! From our first viewing at Burtonfields Hall to the Sunday following our wedding day, his humour and friendliness kept us relaxed (and sane!) throughout. Every email and last minute panic was responded to promptly and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better to help us navigate the wedding planning process.

In addition to Will, all of the background staff at Burtonfields Hall were so lovely. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they helped to make the day run like clockwork (well oiled machine springs to mind!) You could tell they were genuinely so happy and excited for us to be there on our wedding weekend.

As everyone says…we just wish we could do it all again now!

Burtonfields Hall - perfection

It’s difficult to know where to start writing a review for Burtonfields Hall as a wedding venue. Everything about it is perfect. The venue itself is just breathtakingly beautiful and unforgettable for wedding party and guests alike. The level of detail in the stunning rooms plus the brilliance of Will (the owner) as a wedding coordinator could not be matched anywhere else I’m sure. Initially my daughter’s wedding was booked for summer, including the marquee but we changed the date for early December. I’m sure for a summer wedding it would be perfect, but also as a winter wedding, with roaring fires and Xmas trees it was incredibly atmospheric and intimate. The 9 guest rooms are all beautifully appointed and enabled us to just relax for the whole weekend. Will’s energy and organisational skills and ability to make everything appear seamless made the wedding day just perfect from start to finish. I would highly recommend Burtonfields Hall as a wedding venue and would give 10 stars if it was an option.

Wonderful!

We originally viewed Burtonfields as a possible venue for our wedding in January 2023, greeted by Will with tea in front of one of many open fires in the house. For us, what could have been a difficult decision as to where to hold our wedding was made straightforward on visiting Burtonfields, where not only is the house breathtakingly beautiful but proprietor Will’s warmth and calm manner assured us we were to be in safe hands. We duly booked and months later, enjoyed a perfect May wedding day at Burtonfields. The house allows you to relax in opulent but not overbearing surroundings, the beautiful gardens mirroring the high level of personal care and detail that the Bush family have invested into the refurbishment of Burtonfields, where every room from reception hall to the bedrooms have been thoughtfully restored. Through the staff at Burtonfields, the décor, its provisions and characterful setting, it instils warmth and relaxation, where our day was made all the more special by how guests of all ages enjoyed the venue standalone to the wedding itself. Indeed, our photographs did not need staging, with the house and gardens providing the perfect backdrop to both professional and guest photos, capturing friends and family happy and content. We are fortunate to have chosen Burtonfields for our wedding. Will and his staff provided calm direction, guidance and assurance in the months leading up to the wedding and through the day itself – we can only but extend our sincere thanks and appreciation and would encourage others to visit Burtonfields – it is unique. We are now finding reasons to plan a return with friends and family to make use of the house again!

Absolutely perfect!

What a perfect venue. Can not thank Will and the team enough for allowing us to hold our special day here. It was perfect from start to finish. From initial enquiry, Will supported our requests and guided us through the whole process. The rooms are stunning, beautiful photos can be captured inside and out. We booked Purple Chilli Catering who delivered the best food (and with a number of awkward requests/allergies). 10/10. Would recommend Burtonfields Hall to everyone.

We had the most perfect day at Burtonfields!

Our wedding day was perfect at Burtonfields Hall, from the location to every little detail in the house. Will and the team were so attentive throughout the day and ensured we got everything we needed. Will was extremely responsive to the numerous emails we sent throughout the planning phase and made sure that our tight schedule ran according to plan! Our family and friends loved being in the house, we’re still getting compliments about Burtonfields a month after! All 9 bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the surrounding grounds were so scenic. We couldn’t recommend Burtonfields enough for weddings and parties, it was hard to say goodbye the morning after!

Perfect wedding venue!

We had our wedding at Burtonfields a few weeks ago and had the most amazing weekend! From our first viewing and throughout the wedding weekend Will was so helpful and made sure the whole weekend ran smoothly for us. The venue itself is beautiful, both inside and out. We're so pleased that we chose here, and would definitely recommend a Burtonfields Hall wedding to anyone!

Perfect wedding venue

We feel so lucky to have got married at this stunning venue, it was such a beautiful backdrop to our perfect day. The owner Will couldn’t have done more to help us, responding very quickly to queries and he and his team worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure everything ran smoothly.

Wedding at Burtonfields Hall

We had our wedding at Burtonfields last weekend, and I’m so glad we did! . From the first day we went to visit we realised that Burtonfields was our kind of venue; with it’s beautiful gardens, gorgeous bedrooms & bathrooms and sitting/dining rooms so elegant & comfy that people were loathe to leave them! Our family couldn’t believe how luxurious the place was. Burtonfields isn’t just elegant though, it’s welcoming, and despite the fact that it’s full of beautiful antiques, fabrics & every conceivable luxury item, it still felt like our home for the weekend.
The whole Burtonfields team absolutely made our weekend and nothing was too much trouble. They were so friendly & helpful, it was a joy to stay there, but Will especially made it so easy and fun. He’s a superstar!
We cannot recommend this gem of a venue enough, and we’ll definitely be booking it for our next big family celebration.
Thanks again

A special and personal wedding venue

We had the most wonderful wedding weekend at Burtonfields Hall. The rooms are spectacular and beautifully decorated, and having the whole house to ourselves was so special and really made our wedding one to remember. Wish we could do it all over again!

Absolutely stunning and fantastic venue to hold your special wedding day!

Absolutely stunning and fantastic venue to hold your special wedding day! From first visiting the venue in June 2022 it was an almost certain yes that day to hold our own wedding there in October 2022! Yes, it may seem last minute to plan a wedding, but we did it and we have to say we had the best day of our lives and could not fault our entire weekend stay and wedding day at Burtonfields Hall.

The décor throughout is top notch and to a stunning standard, in keeping with the original period features throughout the house with a very arts and crafts design.

Having the house over the weekend made a fantastic venue for our family and friends to also stay and visit us at the wedding location, prior to and after the wedding day. We could utilise the house as our own for entertaining guests, which had a lovely relaxed and friendly feel and gave a great opportunity for new family members to meet and socialise.

There is a large welcoming entrance hallway which is perfect for meeting and greeting guests, with a grand piano, which we used throughout the stay and a large open fire. There are two large sitting rooms, a dining room and large modern kitchen to also use during the stay. Then there is the billiards room that made a fantastic hall for our wedding breakfast and following evening's entertainment on the day. Adjacent to this is an excellent bar and inside & outside bar area too; very popular with our guests especially during the evening. All 9 bedrooms for the lucky guests that stayed at Burtonfields Hall, are also to a superior standard and en suit, with all guests complimenting their stay, 5-star standard!

Will the owner of Burtonfields Hall is very accommodating and consistently works very hard to ensure that the venue meets expectation and the day runs smoothly. We had four months to plan our big day and he helped greatly as our wedding day planner and advisor for the weekend stay. We felt very welcome and accommodated in his large family-owned home and look forward to meeting him again in the not-too distant future.

Personal and perfect

Could not recommend this venue and Will more. From start to finish it was an utter joy planning our wedding. Will ensured the day was planned perfectly and ran without a hitch. Completely personal to us and different to any wedding we had been to and our guests told us the same. The rooms are beautiful and you truly feel at home at this incredible venue. It’s made even more perfect by the legend that is Will and his team were fab also.

Perfect Perfect Perfect

What an amazing venue! We were so privileged to be able get married at Burtonfields Hall this Summer. It was without doubt three of the best days of our life and not just for the obvious reasons. We can honestly say Will and his Team were absolutely incredible at making our day the best it could be and also supporting us in the build up to the big day. We had the use of Burtonfields Hall privately over three days and it was an amazing venue to be able to host close family and friends. We were also lucky enough to be the first couple to be married outside and it was a perfect way to utilise the stunning grounds. Burtonfields Hall has recently been renovated to an exceptionally high standard and all the bedrooms are dressed beautifully, each with a unique and stunning en-suite. This venue is an absolutely must if you are looking to have the perfect wedding at a perfect venue with the perfect team, you won’t be disappointed!
