4* Best Western Signature Collection, Bar Hill, Cambridge
Peaceful getaway 5 miles from the famous university city. Boasting an 18-hole golf course, indoor swimming pool and beautiful grounds to explore, Cambridge, BW Signature Collection by Best Western really is a place to unwind, let your hair down and enjoy some valuable 'me' time. The famous academic city is 5 miles away, with its mesmerising colleges and museums including the Fitzwilliam, home to over half a million artworks. One of the best ways to take in the sights is on a punt along the River Cam and, in the evening, see the city from a different perspective as it comes alive with cocktail bars and clubs. Elsewhere, Duxford's Imperial War Museum has more than 300 aircraft on display, while Newmarket beckons for a day at the races.

We set off to Cambridge for our overnight stay stopping along the way for a lunch time stop (not included). We arrive at out hotel in time for dinner.
We spend this morning and early afternoon in Cambridge. Boasting one of the world's most prestigious universities, Cambridge is a town brimming with history, tradition and scholarly charm. You could spend the day in the bustling market square or punt lazily down the River Cam - either way, Cambridge is a truly idyllic place to explore. Enjoy a relaxing walk through Cambridge University Botanic Garden or admire the shining 24-carat gold Grasshopper - the Corpus Clock - on Corpus Christi College's Taylor Library. Be sure to seek refreshment in one of the town's many tearooms. Fitzbillies, which has been around since the 1920s, is a Cambridge institution and a cosy spot for a traditional afternoon tea.
We then head back to the local area ready to be collected and taken back to your home.
