The Haycock Hotel in Peterborough is steeped in history. The former 16th-century coaching inn has been spectacularly restored, retaining many period features but boasting all the modern comforts expected from a high quality hotel. There's a great cosy bar with roaring fire - perfect for relaxing in during those cold, dark winter nights. The restaurant won an AA Rosette and provides good quality brasserie food. There is also a menu to suit the taste of younger guests. The inn is just a short drive from the M1 motorway.
