Nestling in a tranquil waterside setting amidst glorious gardens, the Dairy is an enchanting private building on the Waddesdon Estate, created for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 19th century and for over 100 years the country retreat of the Rothschild family.
Guests enter the Dairy via the peaceful inner courtyard leading to the West Wing overlooking the lake, home to an unusual collection of waterfowl. Running along its entirety is a wide terrace with two pavilions extending out over the lake, ideal for summer drinks receptions. Or in winter, gather round roaring fires inside the West Hall.
