> See all hotels in Cambridgeshire

This beautiful, green county is perfectly located within easy reaching distance of London and the coastline while remaining peaceful and untouched countryside. Best Western has 3 hotels in Cambridgeshire centred around the county town of Cambridge and Peterborough but giving easy access to the surrounding countryside. A stay in a Cambridgeshire hotel combines the art and culture of Britain's second-oldest university and its charming surrounding town with the picturesque fenland countryside full of rare wildlife, traditional villages and whirring watermills straining as they work.

Town and city breaks in Cambridgeshire

The county is home to one of the most famous small cities in the world. Cambridge, the county town, is iconic the world over for being one of the founding centres of western academia. No matter where your Cambridgeshire hotel is, missing out on the incomparable magical ambience heavy throughout the winding streets would be a massive shame. A wander around the historic halls of the university is an absolute must. Admire the tranquil waterways, loud with punting students lazing until their next tutorial, and the breath-taking architecture. The city of Peterborough is also worth a visit when staying in hotel in Cambridgeshire. It is home to one of the most impressive Norman Cathedrals in Britain and has witnessed plenty of historical events and conflict. For keen historians, check out the museum at Huntingdon where you can dress up as a roundhead.

Holidays in the Cambridgeshire countryside

The landscape and scenery is quintessentially English, dominated by perpetual greenery and gentle, flowing waterways. Why not hire a boat and chug down one of the peaceful rivers, passing quiet country villages with thatched roofs and ornamental churches. The 40-acre Botanic Gardens are an oasis or island in the heart of Cambridge. For an afternoon of traditional bread making and baking head to Houghton Mill near Huntingdon, the last functional watermill on the Great Ouse. Wicken Fen, one of Britain's oldest reserves, is a National Trust wetlands nature reserve near Wicken, a paradise for herons and dragonflies and a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Attractions in Cambridgeshire

Linton Zoo has animal talks on its secretive star attraction, snow leopards, one of the world's most elusive predators. To have a good round trip and really experience the region, get down to the Nene Valley Railway from your Cambridgeshire hotel. Being whisked through the gentle countryside to the soundtrack of steam is an amazing feeling. For visitors interested in architecture and history, there are a number of places of interest, including Ely Cathedral, Kimbolton Castle, Duxford Chapel and Ramsey Abbey among many others. Book a Best Western hotel in Cambridgeshire for an amazing short break. Memories of the stunning county will be with you for a long time.
