Set just outside of Newmarket, in Six Mile Bottom, you will find Paddocks House, the latest addition to “The House Collection.” Just a stone throw away from the famous Newmarket racecourses and a short drive from Cambridge and Saffron Walde.

The 15-luxury bedroom hotel dates back to the early 18th century and the former home of Lord Bryon’s sister. Since then the house has undergone a design-led transformation creating a new landmark for high quality hospitality, dining and special events.

With a combination of stunning grounds and elegant interiors, my favourites being the grand staircase and feature chandelier, Paddocks House offers guests the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, making it the perfect rural retreat.

Bedrooms are crisp and clean, decorated in various shades of white and grey, which draw attention to the incredibly stunning free-standing copper bath, of which is a trademark feature in every room.

It’s the type of hotel room, which you wouldn’t feel guilty staying in for. Boasting a flat screen TV, Bose sound systems and wait for it… Your own private butler! Yes there really is no need to leave the room… Until dinner time any way!

The hotels restaurant, otherwise known as The Dining Room is the perfect place to catch up with friends, impress a dinner date or simply relax and enjoy the professional yet friendly service.

The a la carte menu offers a variety of choices; my favourites being the sweetcorn veloute to start and the fillet of hake to follow, be warned, the presentation of the dishes look almost too good to eat!

Overall I was extremely impressed with the: interior, service, location and beautiful grounds. I can see why this house has become a popular location for summer weddings.

If you’re looking to unwind, Paddocks House is the place for you.
