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 recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.[1]

The house dates from the early 17th century, and was built by John Werden.[2] 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 Rowton family purchased the building, which had fallen into considerable disrepair throughout the late 20th century, in 2006 and carried out an extensive restoration programme.[2][3] In 2018, the owners elected to dispose of the house via a prize competition.[4]
