Bed & Breakfast


Established in 1990, Woolmer Cottage Stables consists of around
30 stables and 25 acres of paddocks.

Close to Newmarket, the home of flat horse racing in the UK, Woolmer Cottage Stables is a transit/holding yard for the many horses which travel nationally or internationally through this busy horse transport hub.

Horses are often from the prestigious Newmarket Bloodstock Sales waiting to go to their new homes, either locally, within the UK or further to afield to Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, the Far East or
the Middle East. Or the horses are just passing through on their
way to Stud, new homes or to compete.

The horses we look after are generally thoroughbreds, often from such Presitigious owners as the Royal Studs or Juddmonte Racing but also have also included Olympic and Paralympic competitors as well as virtually every shape, size and breed of horses and ponies you can imagine!


Welcome to Woolmer Cottage Stables

A warm welcome waits for you at Woolmer Cottage, in south east Cambridgeshire, close to the Suffolk borders near Newmarket, Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill and Saffron Walden.

Thanks again for making me welcome, the room was spacious and clean, the breakfasts very tasty (v.nice home-made bread too), and the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly. I really enjoyed my few days in Cambs, there’s lots to see and do, and the day cycling on Friday was really special.

Thanks for a great room and a superb breakfast! I will, as a certain film actor says......be back! made a real difference to a busy weekend, I totalled 650 miles!    Cheers!

Woolmer Cottage is set in the most beautiful rolling countryside but . . . with easy access to Newmarket and Cambridge. Molly, my dog, and I made the most of the endless walking opportunities which are available directly from the house and offer great countryside scenery. Mary, the host, cooks the best breakfasts I have ever had in a B&B and is so accommodating – after getting caught in a downpour she dried out my shoes for me and provided a dog towel for Molly! I would highly recommend a stay at Woolmer Cottage.
