The Perfect Country Hotel Retreat

DUE TO building refurbishment we wont be open until late September


Racehorses Hotel Update October 2021.

Firstly, I like to thank all my customers and residents over the years, who sent me good wishes by email and telephone and thank you for your patience.

Update of the Hotel.

At the beginning of July, a company was contracted to refurbish the hotel from the 12th July.

It was decided that the hotel would be renovated in two phases.

Phase one was to be completed by 20th September. We hope the kitchen, bar and the two bar areas would be open, but bar area floor was dug up on 15th September, so this did not happen.

Phase two (the rest of the hotel ground floor is (supposed) to be completed by 14th January 2022.


In December, we hope to reopen the bar area (Phase one) to start a new chapter in the Racehorses history. I will keep everybody updated.
