Our Inspector's view

Situated in the beautiful surroundings of Wansford, The Haycock Manor Hotel is a charming property used in the 16th-century as a coaching inn. Recently refurbished, it offers sophisticated bedrooms with original features and a high level of comfort. Cuisine is a strength here with a choice of two restaurants; 'The Haycock kitchen' brasserie as well as 'The Prévost' and its fine dining experience. The kitchen uses quality ingredients and seasonal produce, some of which is fresh from the hotel gardens.

About the area

Discover Cambridgeshire

To the west of East Anglia is Cambridgeshire, a county best known as the home to the university that makes up the second half of ‘Oxbridge’ (the other half is Oxford). As well as its globally renowned educational credentials, it also has a rich natural history; much of its area is made up of reclaimed or untouched fens. These are low-lying areas which are marshy and prone to flooding. The lowest point in the UK is at Holme Fen, which is some 9 feet (2.75 metres) below sea level. Some of the fens had been drained before, but it was in the 19th and 20th centuries that wide-spread, successful drainage took place, expanding the amount of arable and inhabitable land available.

Ely Cathedral was built on an island among the swampy fens, but now sits among acres of productive farmland, albeit farmland criss-crossed by miles of flood-preventing watercourses. Oliver Cromwell was born in Ely, and his family home can still be visited. Cambridge itself is a beautiful and historic city, with any number of impressive old buildings, churches and colleges, and plenty of chances to mess about on the River Cam which gave the city its name.
