The White Horse Stables was the perfect place to stay for our local wedding, we were welcomed with a cup of tea and breakfast the next morning was a treat. Jane was very friendly and the room was very comfortable.

Our stay at White Horse Stables was everything we wanted it to be. The historic Arts and Crafts house is conveniently situated for Newmarket and the July racecourse, which was why we chose it. Jane and Chris were very welcoming and gave us all the information about the area that we needed, including good recommendations of where to have dinner. They also gave us useful tips on visiting Cambridge on our final day. The room was very comfortable with a huge adjacent bathroom. We also had use of two downstairs sitting rooms. Jane's breakfast was wonderful with delicious fresh fruit and an excellent cooked breakfast, gave us a fantastic start to the day. We will definitely return if visiting Newmarket again and have no hesitation in recommending White Horse Stables to others, indeed I already have!
