About The Pear Tree

The name Purton comes from the Old English ‘pirige’ for ‘pear’ and ‘tun’ for ‘enclosure’ or ‘homestead’ and pear trees were often used as an ancient boundary marker.

The history of The Pear Tree goes back 700 years, with parts of its stunning architecture originating in the 17th century. Originally the Saxon village vicarage, The Pear Tree was once moved brick by brick to its current location on the village’s southern edge.

The Pear Tree opened its doors as a hotel in 1987 after the Diocese of Bristol sold the premises to Francis and Anne Young. The couple lovingly ran The Pear Tree as a hotel until 2019.

The venue was acquired by Artemis Venue Services in 2019, adding a new, modern Orangery to the back of the venue, built in Cotswold stone and updating the luxurious bedrooms to convert it into the exclusive-use wedding and events venue it is today. The venue is set in over 7 acres of lawned gardens and grounds and includes its very own vineyard.

Blend the old with the new; The Pear Tree Purton is one of the most prestigious exclusive use venue-with-rooms in Wiltshire and south-west, located within easy reach of Bristol, Reading and London.
