Haycock Manor opens its doors for the first time today, and the new hotel has joined Preferred Hotels to help boost its customer reach.
The 16th century listed building in Wansford, Cambridgeshire, has been extensively restored, having undergone a refurbishment project and is part of the latest 11 new cohorts to the Preferred portfolio.
Haycock Manor comprises 49 bedrooms, with exposed beams, Elizabethan fireplaces, and four poster beds.
The hotel’s dining offerings include Prévost Restaurant, housed in an Orangery style building with glass atrium overlooking the kitchen gardens, and Haycock Kitchen, which extends a large terrace area and serves brasserie-style dishes.
At the helm of the Haycock Manor kitchen is executive chef Lee Clarke. Whilst Clarke will oversee all elements of the food and beverage including breakfast, afternoon tea and Haycock Kitchen, his main focus will be Prévost Restaurant.
The hotel is family-owned and operated by Haycock Limited.
The second phase of opening will be completed in August and will comprise the launch of a cookery school and farm shop, with a spa and riverside glamping site to open in early 2022.
