Butley Priory was originally built in the early 1300s. It originally comprised of a collection of buildings, spanning 20 acres of land, all enclosed with in a stone wall. Over the years it played host to royals and noble men and women. However, being such a large manor, it slowly began to fall into disrepair.
In the early 20th century, Dr Montague Rendell took it upon himself to restore the property to its former glory. In 2016 Butley Priory was named by Vogue Online as one of the best Airbnb wedding venues in the world.
