Sitting by a lake in the village of Cambourne, just 20 minutes’ drive from the centre of Cambridge, QHotels’ Cambridge Belfry offers an AA 4-star experience, rural tranquillity and plenty of activity for those who want it.

With its medieval colleges, rambling pubs and punts gliding down the River Cam, Cambridge is the area’s main attraction. Explore a college or two several are open to the public. The Fitzwilliam Museum, one of the oldest in the UK, houses everything from works by da Vinci to artefacts from ancient Egypt and Rome. Also nearby are Imperial War Museum Duxford (20 minutes' drive) and the American Military Cemetery (seven minutes' drive).

The Bridge Bar & Restaurant is open every day for dinner -- look for dishes such as Cambridgeshire pork belly or slow-cooked beef brisket bourgignon. The lounge bar is a more relaxed affair and serves drinks all day, as well as lunch and dinner. Guests can relax in the spa (treatments are available at a supplement) or in a gym that has "state of the art" facilities (The AA) and a swimming pool.

Rooms are spacious and modern -- all have free Wi-Fi and a separate bath and shower. Upgrade to a Superior Room for more space and fluffy bathrobes, or a Junior or Penthouse Suite for a separate living room and a spa bath.
