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

We looked for somewhere to stay, whilst visiting family locally for a surprise party. After looking at other options we booked Orchard Pond. 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 stayed at Orchard Pond for a girlie weekend and had the perfect weekend. The B&B and gardens are gorgeous and Janet & Simon were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were lovely and we particularly enjoyed a dip in the hot tub! We were in the best location for an archery lesson (just 5 mins away) and the Chilford vineyard 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. The beds were comfortable my son had wanted to sleep in our camper van (he is 12) but after trying out the bed quickly changed his mind!... More

Stayed for two nights for a conference at Wellcome Trust in Hinxton. Both hosts made us feel very much at home. We had a shared room with two beds that worked fine. It was very pleasant to have our own bathroom too. However, the breakfast was over the top (in a good way). I ordered everything on the list and... More

We wanted to get away from London after the New Year's festivities - and could not have asked for a more pleasant, welcoming and relaxing time. Our kids had such fun with Janet and Simon and their new chickens - which laid our breakfast eggs. The rooms were extremely comfortable, with the little touches such as cookies and cake making...

Even prior to arrival I had high hopes for Orchard Pond B&B. Janet's communication from booking through to walking through the front door was clear and helpful. She was flexible to accommodate my needs and more than willing to provide helpful advice. On arrival I was greeting more like an old friend than a guest, and that is how you... More

Simon and Janet made my stay most comfortable, fantastic surroundings and great location. They totally made me feel at home. The breakfast one of the best I have had made all the more special with the freshly laid eggs. Highly recommended will come back next year.
