The Dairy at Burghley

Near Stamford,

Cambridgeshire, East Anglia

The Dairy is perfect for get-togethers with friends, weddings, and other events. It consists of two wings called Exeter Cottage and Cecil Cottage. Original dairy elements have been preserved and repurposed whenever possible, along with the addition of some antique furniture, paintings, and prints from Burghley House’s collections. Thomas Hamel, an award-winning interior designer, has created amazing living and dining areas with open fireplaces and breathtaking views. The benefit of an en suite bathroom with walk-in showers and deep bathtubs is available in every room. There’s an enclosed garden and room for your dogs.

The Dairy is close to Burghley House, which has a full schedule of activities and amenities. These include motor rallies, music festivals, food markets and country fairs, the world-renowned Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, and the Burghley Film Festival. While the park surrounding the house is open year-round throughout the day, the House and Gardens are only open from mid-March to November. The Orangery Restaurant is open most days from mid-January to Christmas. Visitors to the Dairy will enjoy exclusive access to the park and can stroll along ‘Capability’s Cutting,’ an 18th-century drive, to the stunning Lion Bridge and across the lake, two of Brown’s most recognisable natural features.
