Newmarket is the home of thoroughbred breeding, racing and training. Only the highest standards will do, which is why the award-winning Packhorse Inn at nearby Moulton is the perfect place to stay.
At the Packhorse Inn you will experience everything you expect from a cosy, traditional pub... and so much more. The restaurant, which draws on the very best food from local producers, is the only spot in Suffolk with the much sought-after 3 AA Rosettes.
All eight en-suite bedrooms at The Packhorse are individually decorated and boast indulgent king or emperor sized beds, huge mirrors and state of the art televisions. Luxurious touches such as goose down duvets and mohair bed throws ensure that all guests enjoy a relaxing and memorable stay.
On the doorstep and nearby
The birthplace of British thoroughbred racing is on your doorstep. Newmarket is renowed for two race courses – The July Course where the July Cup is held and The Rowley Mile where the two Classic races, the 2,000 Guineas and 1,000 Guineas, are held annually. There are also many studs and stables open for guided tours and visits or you can find a spot on the gallops and watch the jockeys training. The beautiful Suffolk market town also boasts the National Horseracing Museum and the Sporting Art Trust.
Beyond Newmarket, both Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds are less than 30 minutes away.
Worth staying in for ...
Why eat and drink anywhere else when the Packhorse Inn is Suffolk's only restaurant with the coveted 3AA Rosettes? The extensive wine list is outstanding – with superb wines for all budgets and tastes.
