The Dairy is comprised of two wings named Cecil Cottage and Exeter Cottage, making it ideal for a group of friends, family reunions and all manner of celebrations including wedding parties. Wherever possible, original features from the dairy have been kept and reused along with the introduction of some antique paintings, prints and furniture from the collections at Burghley House. Award-winning interior designer, Thomas Hamel, has created spectacular dining and living spaces enjoying open fires and wonderful views. Every room has the advantage of an en-suite bathroom with deep bath tubs and walk-in showers. There is space for your dogs and an enclosed garden.
The Dairy is within walking distance of Burghley House which offers a full calendar of events and facilities. These include concerts, country fairs and food markets, car rallies, the Burghley Film festival and the world class Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. The Orangery Restaurant, is open most days from mid-January to Christmas and while the park around the House is accessible all year during daylight hours, the House and Gardens can be enjoyed from mid-March until November. Guests at the Dairy will have privileged access through the park and be able to walk down the 18th Century drive known as ‘Capability’s Cutting’ to the beautiful Lion Bridge and across the lake, one of Brown’s most iconic landscape features.
