We've spent a long weekend at the Orchard Pond in August 2015. Spacy, comfortable and clean room and facilities with much attention to the detail. We were welcomed with cake and tea in the beautiful garden where we could even enjoy breakfast once. Which was very tasty, with fresh eggs, delcious ham and sausages, and home-made jam. We were even... More

The owners of Orchard Pond, Janet and Simon, were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for Janet who organised all sorts of things for us from dinner to an iphone charger! Rooms were lovely and the gardens were beautiful - a perfect place to sit by the pond watching the fountain. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place

We stayed one night at Orchard Pond and were very impressed with both the quality of the accommodation and the friendly and helpful service from the owners. Nothing was too much trouble. Home made cake on arrival was a lovely touch. Good choice of food for breakfast too. Recommended as an overnight stop when visiting Duxford.

My friends and I stayed at this b&b after a wedding. It is conveniently located and charmingly furnished. Janet was sooo accommodating. She retrieved us in the middle of the night - thank you so much - and was extremely attentive with our breakfasts the morning after. She is quite the baker and provided some delicious home-baked treats in our... More
