The Haycock Hotel, one of England's finest coaching inns, dates back to 1620. Its impressive façade dominates the idyllic stone village of Wansford-in-England, set in unspoilt countryside on the banks of the River Nene.

Discerning guests can enjoy our award winning gardens, beautiful grounds; intimate atmospheric courtyard. Petanque courts, cricket pitch and parkland that sweep down to the tree lined River Nene.

Beautifully presented inside and out, The Haycock set within a ‘chocolate box’ village has retained its great character and charm. Our luxuriously decorated bedrooms in the old inn once played host to Princess Victoria and Mary Queen of Scots on her way to Fotheringhay. Among the many modern day celebrities to have visited, we are proud to have been graced with the presence of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Our facilities designed with the needs of the 21st century in mind, cater for guests with special needs and include a ballroom, outstanding brasserie restaurant and a fully equipped business centre with dedicated business support staff and a range of private meeting rooms to accommodate guests from 4-300. We cater for society weddings, corporate weekends and business conferences to intimate dinners and luxurious lunches.

You can look forward to a warm welcome, offered by friendly and courteous staff. With 500 years of traditional hospitality behind us, you will find we really know how to make your stay special. Whether you come for business or pleasure and whatever your requirements, we will endeavour to make your stay with us the beginning of a long and lasting friendship.
