Situated in the quintessentially English town of Burford, The Bay Tree Hotel is full of historical charm and contemporary style, boasting a setting to remember for your big day.
Nestled in the Cotswold town of Burford lies The Bay Tree Hotel. Warm, relaxing and welcoming, this hotel is the perfect retreat for your wedding day.
As a small country house hotel, the Bay Tree is ideally suited to exclusive use weddings. We can give you exclusivity of the hotel from check-in (14.00) until check out the following morning. Once your last guests have arrived we will close the front door allowing you to enjoy the atmosphere of a private house party with the advantage of our friendly and professional team to tend to your every need.
If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, we also have two beautiful rooms and a stunning Summer House to choose from…
Hawthorne: Holding up to 12 guests and perfect for those looking for an intimate day spent with close friends and family.
The Conservatory: Stunning garden views and ideal for up to 60 guests.
The Garden: Picture-perfect garden with the ceremony held in our Summer House, complete with red carpet.
There was a slight slip-up with no drinks being ready for the arrival of evening guests but Mark I know you responded quickly to get this set up.
We left £200 of cash tips with the duty manager on Monday if you can please make sure this is distributed among all staff who were involved in our wedding day.
We are now in the Maldives, still talking about the day, we will treasure it forever and are happy to recommend you and The Bay Tree as a perfect wedding venue.
You can really tell that the Bay Tree both enjoy and have very good experience in hosting weddings, as every scenario has either been thought of or they have come across previously. On the day, the staff prepared the rooms with clockwork precision and accommodated last minute changes with a smile and a ‘no problem’ – nothing was too much trouble.
Indeed, weddings can be stressful events to organise, but the calm knowing of the staff helped put me at ease – you can really trust everyone to get on with what needs to be done. On several occasions, I didn’t even need to ask for something to be done, it was just anticipated and done before I realised it needed doing.
We then stayed on at the hotel for a couple of extra nights, which if possible, I would highly recommend. This is a very old and beautiful hotel and all of the rooms are decorated to a high standard. At this time of year, the many open log fires add a really cosy atmosphere – it makes you never want to leave the seat by the fire. During our extra nights, the staff were still impeccable (it’s not just weddings they’re great at!). Everyone was so friendly and they accommodated all of our requests – we were so sad to leave!
Special mentions need to go to Maureen, the Bay Tree wedding coordinator who made everything so easy and really helped our day be the success it was. Also to the General Manager, Mark who made everything look so effortless and whose team were just fantastic – I can’t sing their praises highly enough!
This is truly an exceptional venue to host a wedding and also to stay for a break in the Cotswolds. It will always be very dear to us and we can’t wait to return for holidays and anniversaries!

The bay tree is not your average wedding venue. From the moment we first went to view it we were so impressed with the hotel. We were made to feel at home, welcomed & so special.
Maureen, Mark & the whole team were outstanding in every department throughout the planning & the big day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and they made our (many) ideas into reality perfectly - they had everything (from the decorations to the day plan and everything else) so under control our wedding was totally stress free and a lot of fun!
The Bay tree is such a beautiful, unique, traditional Cotswold hotel set in the lovely village of Burford. The decor is stunning. The rooms are luxurious, spacious & clean. The food we had for our wedding breakfast was amazing & the service for over 100 people was perfectly executed.
All of our guests were blown away by the venue/service/food/drinks.. everything!
We can't recommend the bay tree enough for a wedding!
