A charming suite stay overlooking The Fens in historic Wisbech, a characterful market town near Cambridge
Sitting proudly overlooking The Fens, The Rose and Crown Hotel occupies a spot that's hosted travellers since as far back as 1435. The ancient cellars still lie below and elegant and up-to-date rooms sit above. Wisbech itself is a characterful market town, just over an hour's drive from Cambridge and its world-renowned university. You'll find a traditional restaurant offering an elegant dining experience here, and breakfast is served daily in The Rose Restaurant. Back In Time is on hand for daytime coffee, cakes and snacks. As this hotel does not have any rooms on the ground floor and there is no lift access, this may not be suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
In the Area
There's plenty to fill your days with here, from the museum dedicated to Octavia Hill—an artist and radical who pioneered the concept of social housing—to the Wisbech and Fenland Museum, which charts the history of these fascinating waterways. Elgoods Brewery is within easy reach too and was one of the first Georgian breweries built outside of London. For cyclists, follow Route 63, which covers 45 kilometres of some of England's flattest countryside.
