The Setting

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.

The Dairy is just an hour outside of London with 3 train stations within 30 minutes of the venue.

The Vibe

The Dairy is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and partnerships in the Inner Courtyard, West Hall, South Hall, Wintergarden and Lakeside Pavilions and the Secret Garden. Their local church, St Michael and All Angels, is just a short walk from the Dairy.

Drinks Receptions

With its clean lines and manicured lawns, the Dairy Courtyard is an ideal space for alfresco summer drinks. Alternatively the beautiful lakeside terrace pavilions are perfect for those looking for summer shade. The Wintergarden with its contemporary glass design and beautiful views across the private lakes provides a fabulous winter option.
