The House Collection launch second hotel in Newmarket

Boutique hotel group The House Collection has opened its second venue, Paddocks House, following a refurbishment of the former Swynford Paddocks hotel, near Newmarket.

The 15-bedroom Paddocks House is the sister property of Poets House in Ely, which opened in April 2013.

Located in an 18th-century country house which was once owned by the sister of the poet Lord Byron, the hotel aims to combine luxury and comfort with the latest technology.

The 46-seat Dining Room focuses on local, seasonal dishes, while the Garden Room can accommodate functions for up to 150 guests. There is further capacity for events in the Reading Room (80 guests) and the Drawing Room, for 30 people.

The House Collection has been established by David Toulson-Burke, Ian Cross and Jonathan Baker, who all previously worked in the senior management team at the Belfry, near Birmingham.

Toulson-Burke, managing director of The House Collection, said: "We are thrilled to have opened our second hotel and can't wait to welcome our guests. Injecting fresh investment into Paddocks House presents a wonderful opportunity to revive the property to its former glory. It will be a fabulous place for local people to enjoy while boosting the wider appeal of the region. Like Poets House in Ely, Paddocks House has been designed with discerning guests in mind, helping to meet growing demand for stylish, high-quality hospitality in mid-Anglia and the Cambridge area."
