About The Dairy

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. Breathtakingly beautiful, with architecturally elegant rooms, roaring log fires in winter and two outside pavilions overlooking the lake. The Dairy offers a wonderfully romantic backdrop - whatever the season. You and your guests can enjoy a taste of that privileged lifestyle: superlative food, excellent wines and friendly, professional service with absolute exclusivity guaranteed.

    Amazing Venue

    I wanted to thank you very much for all your hard work in helping to make Katie and Steve's wedding on 3 August such a memorable day. You were such a calming influence and professional through and through.

    In the build up to the wedding you helped us to feel confident that it would all run smoothly and from the moment we arrived at the Dairy on the wedding day you were there to ensure we relaxed.

    The Dairy is an amazing venue and all our guests commented on the beauty, cleanliness and also the professionalism of your team. The service at the wedding breakfast was second to none and the food was delicious. (August 2015)

    Magical

    I just wanted to write and thank you for everything. It was such a magical and emotional day - I didn't want it to end. Even though it was cloudy, the ceremony was so beautiful by the lake. The flowers and the surrounding willow trees were stunning and I loved hearing the ducks during the quiet moments of the ceremony! However, as you know, the sun did appear late afternoon, and it was a glorious evening by the lake. I received so many lovely comments from guests who were totally taken aback by the beauty of the venue. Many of them told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and felt honoured and privileged to have been part of it.

    Your staff were wonderful. I must mention the young man who is in charge. He was so very helpful and even at the end when I came back to collect everything, he was there to help.

    The food was excellent - and again, I had many good comments on it. - particularly the deserts!!

    So a huge thank you to all involved. It would be lovely to use the Dairy again in the future, I will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a venue. (June 2015)
