Our house is in the center of Newmarket, a lively market town that is also the thoroughbred horse racing capital of the United Kingdom. Newmarket is a thriving town in its own right, surrounded by gorgeous horse farms, heaths, and rolling hills in all directions. All of the normal amenities (grocery stores, butchers, pet shops, antiques stores, clothes shops, restaurants) are readily available just a minute's walk from the house. The railway station, with direct links to the beautiful medieval towns of Cambridge (20 minutes) and Bury St Edmunds (20 minutes), is 5 minutes' walk from the house. London is 80 minutes by train or by car.
