Cross Keys Hotel Chatteris Cambridgeshire PE16 6BA

Distance: 6.3 miles
The Cross Keys Hotel in Chatteris is a 16th Century Coaching Inn in a pleasant Fenland Town, set between the two cathedral cities of Ely and Peterborough. Surrounded by rich farmland, known as the Covent Garden of England. Chatteris is the Gateway to the Fens. During the Medieval period, the town was dominated by Chatteris Abbey, a small Benedictine nunnery dedicated to St Mary, built in 980 by Alfwen the niece of King Edgar and one of only eight nunneries mentioned in the Domesday Book. Throughout its existence, the abbey was comparatively poor compared to other foundations, due to a lack of royal patronage and a consequent lack of tithe estates. As a result, the abbey survived the first wave of closures during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, but was surrendered to the king's commissioners in 1538, by which time there were eleven nuns in residence. Later fires in 1706 and 1864 destroyed most medieval and Georgian architecture, and a large proportion of the town's listed buildings date from the Victorian period onwards. However, many of the pasture fields on the outskirts of the town have evidence of ridge and furrow farming practices, although these are under threat by current building proposals. To the north of the town runs the Forty Foot Drain, a large river also called Vermuyden's Drain, after the Dutch engineer whose name is associated with the fen drainage works of the middle of the 17th century. Several of the older buildings of the town show evidence of the Dutch architectural style. Chatteris is a market town and has possessed this designation since 1834, although an earlier market existed in the town, which was discontinued due to poor roads in 1808. A small market is still held every Friday. Following the Beeching Axe, Chatteris railway station, formerly on the St. Ives extension of the Great Eastern Railway was closed in March 1967. It is believed Samuel Pepys stayed here in September 1663, as did the wild man Oliver Reed.

The Dog In A Doublet Peterborough Cambridgeshire PE6 0RW

Distance: 9 miles
We're a gastro pub serving top quality fresh and local British food. But we're more than that - we've got a deli, a bed & breakfast, camping, and even our own little farm right outside. Perfect for any occasion, from a family gathering (kids are more than welcome!) to an intimate evening, it can all be found at the The Dog In A Doublet. In the middle of the fens, Dog in a Doublet is an historic 16th century landmark building on the river Nene next to one of the biggest lock gates in Europe. Lovingly restored from being closed for 4 years it is now foodie heaven. The interior has a shabby chic feel keeping to its grand pub history. The restaurant has a farmhouse feel with a large open kitchen where you can see the chefs plating their wonderful creations. The food, described as british pub food of exceptional standard, would not be out of place in the finest of restaurants. Service is polite but informal in keeping with the pub atmosphere. British classics sit alongside some of our chefs more unique spins. Much of our meat is reared in the farm, however there is also great consideration given to vegetarians and vegans a homage to the fact that much of the produce used comes from our own gardens or surrounding farms. All rooms have balconies, on which you can enjoy the stunning landscapes. They are decorated in a luxurious boutique style and some even have vaulted ceilings with all the original beamwork exposed. In the summer you can eat on the riverbank or even in the little orchard with the petting zoos ducks, chickens, pygmy goats, rabbits, pigs and ponies. Fishing lakes are abundant in the area. “A warm and friendly welcome awaits you in our riverside home.” – John and Della
