Duxford Lodge Hotel
  • Self Assessed 1 2 3

WITH REGRET THE DUXFORD LODGE HOTEL IS CLOSED The hotel was built in the early part of the 1900s as a private house and still retains much of its grandeur. Located in the Cambridgeshire village of Duxford, this fine country house hotel offers ideal accommodation for visitors to Cambridge, Cambridge University, Newmarket, Thaxted, Saffron Walden, the Imperial War Museum (Duxford Air Museum) and is convenient for Stansted Airport. All fifteen bedrooms are individually decorated and our policy of continuous refurbishment ensures that they are always maintained to a very high standard. Check out our accommodation page for the latest pictures of some of our rooms. Surrounded by beautifully kept and secluded gardens, the sweeping drive takes you to free, convenient, parking by the main hotel building. There is also the garden room wing with four rooms, two of which have four-poster beds, standing where the stables of yesteryear were built. When visiting the Lounge Bar, decorated with many pictures of aeroplanes and fighter pilots, you can imagine the frequent visitors during the last World War which we believe included Winston Churchill and Douglas Bader among their number. We are currently researching the role the house (Highfield House as it was then) played during the second world war. Anecdotally we hear that it was used by the commanding officers of the local RAF station at Duxford. Bing Crosby was entertained by General Woodbury after a hanger concert on 2nd September 1944 The Duxford Lodge Hotel is easily found just two minutes from J10 of the M11 and a twenty minute drive to Stansted Airport to the South and the City of Cambridge to the North. The famous Imperial War Museum is also just two miles from the picturesque village of Duxford.
