Winter Cosiness

Well, it seems that winter is now truly upon us and the log burner here at Dairy House Antiques has been lit for a few days now!

We've been getting ready for winter with the dealers starting to bring cosiness into their units with blankets, cushions and everything you need to bring some winter cheer to your home.

We have some fantastic Welsh wool blankets.....

A super cosy area to come and have a cup of tea or coffee and a piece of delicious Honeybuns cake.

Or how about cosying up your kitchen with this gorgeous painted dresser with lovely ceramic handles.

We are open every day 10-5 and Sundays 11-4 so why not come along and see what we have to make your home winter ready!

Why Dairy House??

When you come to Dairy House Antiques have you ever wondered what the lovely building was built for?
Well the name and the lovely cool rooms may have given it away…but here are a few old photos of the Dairy House before the antiques & interiors took over.

The approach to Semley Station.
In the 1870’s local milk was sent daily by train to London.
Eventually the original building evolved into the Dairy & Cheese room that is know Dairy House Antiques.
