Following extensive restoration of the Grade II-listed building, Haycock Manor Hotel is set to launch on 22 June 2021.

Located in the heart of Cambridgeshire, it is one of the oldest surviving hotels in England. Haycock Manor will launch as a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts  L.V.X. Collection and Pride of Britain.

The first phase of the opening will see its 49 bedrooms unveiled alongside two restaurants and bar and lounge, while the second phase – to be completed in August – will comprise a cookery school and farm shop and early in 2022, the hotel will launch a luxury spa and riverside glamping.

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 the more casual dining affair Haycock Kitchen, the chef’s main focus will be fine-dining restaurant Prévost.

Recognised in the Michelin Guide, Prévost previously existed in the heart of nearby Peterborough, but from June 2021 will be housed in an Orangery style building with glass atrium overlooking the Haycock’s kitchen gardens. Joining Clarke in the kitchen at Prévost will be Sam Nash, who has spent the last six years garnering his skills at L’Enclume.

Haycock Kitchen, meanwhile, will serve a brasserie-style menu featuring seasonal grills and salads in the historic original Inn dating from 1534. Part of this restaurant is situated in the historic kitchen with its ancient arched ceiling, one of the oldest original elements of the building. The restaurant will feature a large garden terrace overlooking the village high street.

Afternoon tea will be served in one of the hotel’s distinctive drawing rooms, complete with open fireplace and exposed beams and the Cocktail Bar will showcase the very best of British, new and old-world wines, with a strong focus on sustainable, organic producers.
