"Come and have a game of Quidditch in the orchard, Harry"
-- Ron Weasley
Up the hill behind the Burrow’s garden this “small paddock” is usually used by the Weasley children for pick-up Quidditch matches (GF10). It’s particularly convenient for this as the orchard is surrounded by trees, and therefore can’t be seen by any prying Muggle eyes (CS4). For Bill and Fleur’s wedding, a large tent was erected in the orchard, and the ceremony and the after-party both took place here (DH9).
