About the location

WANSFORD

Stamford 6.5 miles; Peterborough 9.2 miles; Corby 17.4 miles

Wansford, sometimes known as Wansford-in-England, is a charming village resting in Cambridgeshire, in easy reach of the vibrant city of Peterborough. Folklore, alongside Defoe's 'A tour thro' the whole island of Great Britain' (1724), suggest that the name 'Wansford-in-England' derives from the tale of a local man who fell asleep on a hayrick, and when he woke he found himself floating down the River Nene towards the sea. He asked a traveller perched on the riverbank where he was, and upon hearing the reply "Wansford", asked, "Wansford in England?". The Haycock Hotel takes its name from the legend, as well as it making a lovely spot to enjoy fine dining or a traditional afternoon tea. The village also provides a pub, convenience store, garage, Post Office, pharmacy and much more to assist you on your self-catered stay. Explore the historical landmark of Wansford Bridge resting above the flowing River Nene, whilst the Grade I listed building of The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin is a marvel to be seen.

Visit the historic stone town of Stamford with its stunning architecture, the noticeable filming location of Pride & Prejudice, alongside it hosting a charming atmosphere and a lovely spot to while away the hours amongst its narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards.
