Classically elegant, Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa was originally built as a Georgian hunting lodge. Nestled in three secluded acres of pruned gardens and rose bushes, it really is one of a kind.

Adjacent to some of the most famous paddocks and stables in the world, Newmarket’s highest rated hotel is a place to rest and rewind. Mixing the charm and character of a country house with the luxury and modernity of a contemporary hotel. Known for providing a service that’s second to none, there’s a real sense of pride in everything that’s offered, whether relaxing in the beautifully appointed rooms, fine dining in the restaurant or taking some ‘me-time’ at the state-of-the-art spa.

Built for the 6th Duke of Bedford in the 18th century and converted into a hotel in 1940, it’s a building that’s continued to evolve. Today it mixes the classic and the contemporary, inside and out, beautifully.
