Bed and Breakfast Description


Situated in the pretty village of Woodditton on the Suffolk/Cambs border, the Lodge is only 3 miles from the racing centre of Newmarket, and a similar distance from the Rowley Mile racecourse, the July racecourse and thoroughbred sales at Tattersalls.

The Lodge is a beautifully furnished Swedish log cabin standing in its own garden, open all year. The guesthouse has three bedrooms, all of which are en-suite with TV, tea/coffee facilities, and a minibar/refrigerator. All rooms have their own front door so guests may come and go as they please.

As well as offering bed and breakfast for visitors to Newmarket, The Garden Lodge is convenient for the surrounding villages of Cheveley, Saxon Street, Dullingham, Stetchworth and Six Mile Bottom. Woodditton itself is a good centre for hikers and ramblers, as it is near the Icknield Way and at the eastern end of the Devil's Dyke.

Further afield, the University city of Cambridge and the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds are only a 25 minute drive away. Other visitor attractions include the Imperial War Museum at Duxford and the cathedral city of Ely, both within half an hour by car.


Newmarket Attractions

Newmarket: a turf enthusiast's paradise
Garden Lodge is only a short drive (3 miles) from Newmarket, the centre of flat racing in England. Racegoers will find much of interest to visit: as well as meetings held almost weekly throughout the summer (we are 2-3 miles from both the Rowley Mile racecourse and the July racecourse), there are the thoroughbred sales at Tattersalls, for example. Another tourist attraction is the Horse Racing Museum, which is open daily and serves tea, coffee and excellent light lunches.

Between the end of June and and the middle of August, top bands perform after certain Friday night race meetings, and entrance is by ticket only. Ask us for assistance, as early booking is essential. Past performers have included Liberty X, the Hollies and Atomic Kitten. Acts for 2005 include Ronan Keating, Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, Will Young, and Status Quo.
Duxford: aviation heaven

Fans of military and historic aircraft will enjoy a visit to the Imperial War Museum at Duxford (30 minutes by car), which not only has exhibitions and static displays of over 180 aircraft (including biplanes, Spitfires, Concorde and Gulf War jets), but also hosts several spectacular airshows each year, where you can watch the planes in the air.

City visits:
You have a choice of three cities within a short drive. Cambridge (20 minutes), of course, has a wealth of wonderful college architecture to explore, museums, galleries, and churches, or you can watch punters on the Cam as you walk along the Backs. It is also a thriving centre for hi-tech industry; for example, the Cambridge Science Park is renowned. Ely Cathedral looks out over the Fens, and when you have finished admiring the views, you can visit the Cathedral, Stained Glass Museum, or Oliver Cromwell's House for example. Bury St Edmunds is another historic town, with lots of galleries and antique shops, as well as a ruined Abbey (now the site of a lovely garden), and a cathedral.

Directions from Newmarket
In Newmarket, at the top of the High Street (Cambridge end of the town) take the B1061 opposite the Total filling station.

After 300 yards the B1061 bears to the right. Do not go round this bend, but take the smaller road on the left, and after two and a half miles you will arrive in Woodditton. Shortly after you pass a clipped beech hedge on the left and a sign pointing to the church on the right, the road goes into some tree-lined bends, then shortly after you emerge from the trees, you'll see some bungalows on your right.

Leave the A1 or M6 at the A14 junction. About 4 miles east of Cambridge, take the A1303 into the centre of Newmarket.

(Do not follow any other signs for Woodditton or you might get lost).

As you enter Newmarket, almost immediately you'll find a right hand turn signposted to Dullingham (opposite a Total garage). From here, you can follow the instructions from Newmarket above.
From the South and West

Leave the M11 at junction 9 and join the A11 (or if you are coming from the A1/A505‚ this road also joins the A11 but a little further on). Continue on the A11 for about 9 miles then take the A1304 into Newmarket.

(Do not follow any other signs for Woodditton or you might get lost).
