The Lady Rothschild Dairy





Description:

The three luxury holiday rental houses at The Lady Rothschild Dairy are positioned around a central courtyard.

The emphasis inside is on quality, in a style that is both comfortable and elegantly modern. Solid oak finishes and natural features make each house quite individual whilst allowing for the highest expectations in modern bathrooms and kitchen spaces. The Lady Rothschild Dairy was designed as a dairy farm, with various buildings arranged around a courtyard and constructed of local building materials such as limestone and thatch, in Vernacular Revival Style.

Constructed at the turn of the 20th century, when agriculture and farming in England were in decline, the complex was constructed as a ferme ornee. The complex comprises a U shaped range of cow-houses around a central fold yard with ancillary buildings including a detached dairy (The Sir Isaac Newt Library), in addition to a dove cote (The Store), cart shed and cow mans cottage (Home Farm Cottage).

It is of exceptional architectural interest for the high quality of its design which reflects the vernacular building traditions of the region and for the level of craftsmanship evident in the working of the materials chosen for its construction. The buildings have been awarded Grade II* listed status.
