This a glorious place, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Orchard Pond is a quick and easy walk from the station (direct trains to Liverpool Street). On arrival, I was warmly greeted by Simon and Janet. I had an outstanding burger for supper at the pub in Duxford which they had recommended. My room was spotless and oh, the... More

From the moment we stepped over the front door we were made to feel extremely welcome. Tea, freshly ground coffee and home baking to welcome us after our journey. Did we need anything else? Nothing was too much trouble for Janet our hostess, we did feel extremely spoilt! Breakfasts were a delight, different fruit daily, freshly cooked full English, homemade... More

We could not have chosen to stay in a more perfect place than Orchard Pond to complete our romantic return to the area where my husband and I met 54 years ago in 1959. My husband, was an RAF airman while I was a WRAF working in Air Traffic Control. We were married two years later and this is the... More

The coziest and most comfortable stay in the area. Caring hosts, delicious breakfast. Bikes available on request. During warm season breakfast is served in the garden. Janet and Simon are most hospitable and caring. Whittlesford railway station is only short walk away. Recommend this place both for business and leisure trips to Cambridge or surrounding villages. Excellent quality for a... More

Amazing how you just leave the main road and you're into an oasis of tranquility. Great welcome, lovely ambiance, peaceful night's sleep in a very comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast served outside. What's more to want? Would definitely go again!

Loved staying here. Janet and Simon are great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were superb particularly the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon from freshly laid eggs from hens kept at Orchard Park. Our room was cosy. The mattress had a topper which made the bed very comfortable. We were pleased to have an ensuite and the shower was... More

This made a nice change from staying in the local hotel. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. We were able to see the pheasant in the garden from our window and did not hear any traffic noise Our bathroom was separate and we were provided with nice fluffy towels. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast next morning.
