The Dairy has been converted to the highest of standards, with every single detail thought through and taken care of. The space is very flexible, and it can easily accommodate large gatherings of friends and family. Everything in The Dairy is to a very high specification, and there is nothing missing. It is in sight (and easy walk) of Burghley House and nearby Stamford is lovely. Highly recommended.
From the minute we arrived at The Dairy we were super impressed. The setting is lovely (set opposite historic buildings, with a view of parkland and the house beyond), it's easy to find and there's plenty of parking. The interior has been converted from its original use to the highest standards imaginable, with a first class kitchen, beautiful dining room (and separate sitting room), wonderful bathrooms and cosy (and clever) bedrooms. The twin up, double-down, is a great initiative (we were a family consisting of parents and a toddler, which worked very well). Incredibly comfortable beds and White Company bathroom bits and pieces completed the feel. Staying with a group which included other small children, I can say that the layout is great - plenty of places to close off as quiet, non-children areas, and all on one level, which is always helpful when small people are running about. The large enclosed garden at the front was ideal for games before teatime, as well as relaxing, drink in hand, once the smaller members of the party had gone to bed. There's so much else to say here; the detailing is so spot-on for example, with references to the building's previous life which add to its uniqueness as a place to stay, and the goodies supplied on arrival were so well thought-through, but the best I can say is try it for yourself. It's a wonderful place for a getaway with families, or for a party of friends looking for somewhere with character to spend a long weekend or a week. It would also be ideal for a wedding party of all ages. Well done the team at Burghley!
Beautiful surrounds and stunning interiors. Very comfortable stay and particularly loved the roll top bath and views over the Cross Country course. Very child friendly as well.
The Dairy was perfect for our large group of friends and their children of various ages under 4. Furnished to a really high standard, it felt very luxurious while also relaxing and child friendly. It's an easy walk to Stamford as well as to the house and amazing to have access through the Lion Gate to the pubic grounds. The layout allows for being sociable as well as to have your own space with large rooms and multiple communal areas. Will definitely be back!
We stayed here for a weekend with a group of friends with children and to be honest, would have been very happy not leaving. The house is set up perfectly and is very luxurious so you feel as though you have been staying in a spa hotel. The decoration is lovely and the views across the fields are spectacular. It is also wonderful to have a couple of enclosed garden spaces for children to run around in and being able to get close to the sheep.
We would definitely stay here again, could not recommend it more.
A wonderful 4 nights with friends and family. The Dairy is beautifully fitted and suits groups of all ages - we were 15 adults and 5 children (under 3). Lots to entertain at the Cottage (enclosed garden and a selection of games provided), Burghley House and the Garden of Surprises and in Stamford itself (market, pubs, lots of boutiques). Estate Office were exceptionally helpful with all queries both in advance and during our stay. Will definitely be back. Thank you.
The Dairy is a beautiful sympathetically renovated barn conversion. 5* accommodation, with a brilliant layout: wow-factor high-ceiling multiple communal areas, two excellent fully-kitted kitchens plus scullery, opulent comfortable bedrooms and great outdoor space in a stunning location. You will not find a better standard of large self-catering accommodation. Perfect for a family get together or a weekend with a large group of friends. I cannot recommend the Dairy highly enough, we will be back (soon!).
