What a treat to find a bed and breakfast that genuinely treat their guests as if they were staying at a stylish small hotel! Tea and home made cake on arrival made us feel very welcome by our hosts Simon and Janet I have read the review from Brian F and can't believe that we stayed at the same place!... More

I travel for work quite a lot and was fed up with comfortable but soul-free business hotels. So I decided to try a B&B for some home-from-home atmosphere. And I really got lucky. Orchard Pond is a charming, somewhat rambling early 20th century house, which has been brought up to date by its owners without losing the original character. It... More

What a wonderful B & B to stay in. It met up to all our expectations. Lovely clean room, with adjoining bathroom in a quiet place. We were given a beautiful welcome and provided with tea and cake on arrival and supplied with more milk for our tea and wonderful home made cake each day. The bed was extremely comfortable,... More

We were delighted with our stay at Orchard Pond. The hosts were warm and welcoming and we were made to feel very much at home. Lovely clean room, very comfortable bed with a well and thoughtfully stocked tea tray, and a spacious en suite. Breakfasts were delicious served in the dining room which is full of character. Extra touches such... More

Another lovely stay at the beautiful Orchard Pond. Janet and Simon are always so warm and welcoming, and really go out of their way to make sure their guests enjoy their stay. We’ve now stayed in all three bedrooms and they are all spotlessly clean and comfortable, with lots of nice little touches to make you feel really at home.... More

We decided to stay at the Orchard Pond after looking at the reviews before booking, we thought we were going to have a lovely stay. But it was far from that. The whole time we spent there, we felt like we were tolerated but not welcome. The bedroom was not clean, carpet had bits over it, the mirror leaning on... More

I'm very sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your stay, and am deeply shocked at some of the points you raised which I will answer as follows: 1. Your own comment written in our guest book referred to "a warm welcome" so it's astonishing to see that you felt "tolerated but not welcome" I served you tea and... More

Breakfast was fantastic and being able to eat outside in their beautiful garden was wonderful. Janet's baking is also unbelievably mouth watering.
