The Packhorse Inn has been signed up to two specialist accommodation guides with an online presence:
Chic Retreats, the “definitive collection of privately owned boutique hotels, B&Bs and luxury villas around the world”. Personally selected for their character, charm and personal service, Chic Retreats has described The Packhorse Inn as: “the best restaurant with boutique hotel rooms in west Suffolk;” and “a new breed of hospitality to the race-going and shooting crowd in Newmarket and Cambridge and is the perfect all-year-round hideaway for those looking for a boutique hotel in Suffolk, within easy reach of London.”

Sawday’s Tom Bell visited The Packhorse Inn for its “Special Places” guide.
“The rise of the cool country inn continues apace and the most recent member to join the club is The Packhorse Inn, a beautifully renovated country pub that was rescued from abject neglect. These days it’s a small-scale pleasure dome – striking interiors, ambrosial food, bedrooms and bathrooms that elate – yet it remains a village local with a lovely bar that welcomes all.”
The Sawday’s philosophy is that it is ‘More than just a bed for the night’. They love all things local and independent, and seek out quirkiness and creativity. They reject the bland, the corporate and the impersonal and select only the most special places and owners.
