The corridors creak with racing history at Egerton Stud. Egerton Stud is The Main House of Egerton House Stables, located in Newmarket, home of horse racing. In the mid-19th century, it was first leased to royal trainer Richard Marsh, and has been the home of many champions and stallions, such as Persimmon, owned by the Prince of Wales. The Prince of Wales was a regular guest at Egerton, as was his friend, Lily Langtry, who owned a successful racing stable nearby. In 1925, the estate was sold to Henry Lascelles, the 6th Earl of Harewood, who was married to Princess Mary, daughter of King George V.
Egerton Stud was built in 1891 and is set in a beautiful, private and secluded location surrounded by gallops. This private house is conveniently located minutes away from the July Course and is the ideal location for many occasions such as race meetings, sales, bloodstock events, corporate events or general entertaining.
In 2015, Egerton Stud commissioned Azoulay Interiors to completely restore the house. It now includes 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, a Billiard Room, a Sauna, a Whisky Room, a reception room and a large dining room accommodating up to 20 seated guests.
Other services include parking facilities, full catering on request (breakfast, lunch, supper), transportation, wine cellar and housekeeping and waitering.
