Woodland House is a three-floor red-brick building overlooking the Severals gallops. It was originally owned by Prince Dimitry Soltykoff (1827-1903) – a Russian aristocrat who was said to have visited Newmarket on holiday and never gone back.

Since then it has passed into the hands of horse racing royalty: Harry Thomson Jones.

Now the property is looking for a new owner with a hefty price tag of nearly £2 million.
