Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Paddocks House was once the country home of Lord Byron's half-sister, Augusta Leigh, and dates back to the early 18th century. Set in the rural village of Six Mile Bottom, the hotel is a 10-minute drive from Newmarket Racecourse and 20 minutes from Cambridge city centre. Expect understated luxury at every turn -- each bedroom butler service and there's even a suite with a private cinema room.

The Dining Room is the hotel's gourmet restaurant. There are deep, plush chairs in velvet taupe, heavy curtains that frame the floor-to-ceiling bay windows and original paintings of racehorses on the panelled walls. The menu features dishes such as tartare of fallow deer, roasted loin of venison and apple terrine with muscovado parfait, granola, green tea and apple macarons.

Guests can relax in The Study, which looks over the terrace and landscaped gardens, or The Brigadier Bar, named after the legendary racehorse Brigadier Gerard. Both bars offer afternoon tea, including a special one for children with chocolate brownies and strawberry milkshake.

There are 15 bedrooms, all equally stylish and some with views of the paddocks. iPads, Bose sound systems and copper bathtubs come as standard, and Wi-Fi is free throughout.
