A short drive from the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, this family-run hotel sits off the main road between Cambridge and Saffron Walden. Bedrooms are spacious and individually designed, with warm tones of pink or buttermilk. Summer is the best time to visit, as ground-floor rooms open out directly onto the lovely, well-maintained garden. Some rooms also have four-poster beds. Two restaurants—Le Paradis and the smaller Petit Paradis—serve good modern European cuisine.
