About Paddocks House

I was very lucky to roll out of my bed here, but even if you’re not staying in one of their grand rooms, Paddocks house is a great place to go for breakfast. It’s only 10 minutes’ drive from Cambridge and set amidst the famous studs of Newmarket. The former country home of Lord Byron’s sister stands out from all the other houses and when you drive up to Paddocks House you can spot chicken roaming and rabbits hopping around. A warm welcome will await you when you step through the door. George the butler of the House Collection will take care of every detail. I was here for a belated Valentines present and George made sure red roses and a lovely card were on my table. It’s the small touches in life, which matter in my opinion. So if you have something special to celebrate, then Paddocks House is the place to go.

About the food

Eating at Paddocks House is a nice private affair. Their restaurant is divided  into small area’s so it’s perfect for a romantic meal. As part of their breakfast, there is a well laid out buffet with croissants, muffins, charcuterie, smoked cheese, fruit and lovely small pots with yoghurt and granola. I was very taken by their breakfast menu as apart from the traditional selection, I noticed Kedgeree and an omelette of just egg whites too. Something you don’t see in many places. Check out their breakfast menu here.

Fruit, yoghurt and granola

I had Egg Benedict with salmon and my other half a full English Breakfast for breakfast at Paddocks House. It was delicious. I could have done with a little bit more hollandaise sauce, but that’s just me. I can’t get enough of it.

Full Breakfast is £ 13.95 and continental is £ 9.95 for non-residents.
