We had a lovely stay and will come back in the future! It's only 2 minutes from de Duxford imperial war museum, so perfect for a visit! Nearby is a very good pub where they serve very good meals!! So hopefully we can go back next year!

Had a lovely overnight stay in the Orchard Pond B&B whilst visiting family in the local area. Janet & Simon welcomed us with tea & delicious homemade cake & we were able to sit in their beautiful garden, watching the display teams from Duxford Airport flying overhead. Our room & bathroom were spacious, clean, comfortable & quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Janet and Simon are excellent hosts - friendly, helpful, and welcoming. They really went out of their way to help with reservations at nearby restaurants and with information on local attractions. The property is lovely and well kept - breakfast can't be beat. The eggs are fresh from their own hens! We would gladly come again.

I had two lovely stays at Orchard Pond. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly, the bedroom and bathroom were both roomy, comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was great, as well as the cake and tea offered on arrival.

My son and I stayed at Orchard Pond for one night after a long day at the nearby RAF IWM. We selected Orchard Pond having read previous very good online reviews. From the first contact by email to the end of our stay, everything was faultless. Easy to find after a three-minute drive from the IWM, we were given a... More

Have to say that was a good decision as this B&B lives up to all the praise and opinions posted on here. As with others we were welcomed by Janet with Tea and freshly made chocolate cake.... More

Orchard Pond House is a beautifully appointed house in a bucolic setting. We enjoyed every possible comfort, and Janet not only went above and beyond with delicious and varied breakfasts, but treated us to afternoon tea and Easter treats every day. She and Simon were both welcoming and helpful; thanks to her advice we used the local train service for... More

We chose this B n B as we wanted to visit London and Duxford Imperial War Museum and for once I got it right! Janet is lovely and nothing is too much trouble.
