Burton Hall is in the small village of Burton 2 miles (3 km) to the southeast of the larger village of Tarvin, Cheshire, England. It is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building.[1]

The house dates from the early 17th century. There have been some small 19th-century additions. It is built in brick with buff sandstone dressings, it has a Welsh slate roof, and four stone-capped brick chimneys. Its plan is square and the house has three storeys over a basement, with a symmetrical three-bay front. The entrance is approached by ten stone steps.[1] The hall, which had fallen into considerable disrepair throughout the late 20th century, has recently undergone an extensive restoration programme by its current owners, the Rowton family.[citation needed]
