I had the pleasure of staying one night at the Orchard Pond Bed and Breakfast. I was given a very warm welcome by the hosts who immediately offered me tea/coffee and lovely piece of homemade cake. The grounds and house are beautiful with a real cosy feeling. Every room was incredibly clean – my room & bathroom were very large... More

Cozy room, comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom with unusually high water pressure for UK standards, incredibly clean and with character. Match this with a perfect breakfast cooked to order and the result is an overnight stay at Orchard Park. The location does not quite match the service but it is excellent for the Imperial War Museum in Duxford and the villages... More

We enjoyed a two-night stay at Orchard Pond whilst attending an outpatient appointment in a Cambridge city centre hospital. Having travelled to Cambridge from Cornwall we needed to be sure that our accommodation would be available when we arrived after a long journey. Janet was very helpful when we made the booking and understood the situation we were facing. On... More

What an amazing B&B! We stayed here as a family of four and thoroughly enjoyed our time here: a wonderful room, great breakfast and a very warm welcome by Janet and Simon. The B&B is conveniently located to Cambridge and the IWM Duxford. We also enjoyed the pub Janet recommended: The John Barleycorn.

On arrival we were welcomed with tea and cake which set the tone for our stay. We took the opportunity to dine in on the first night as we had travelled a fair distance and didn't fancy turfing out again. Janet provided a lovely dinner. The room was perfect and whilst the bathroom was not en-suite it was ours and... More

I've stayed in and around Cambridge quite often when on business, and Orchard Pond is a real find. It's in a really quiet, but easily accessible, location and is ideally placed for the Babraham campus where I was working on this occasion. Janet was really welcoming and the cup of tea and slice of cake on arrival was a nice... More

This is an amazing B&B; home from the sort of home, with full domestic staff and welcoming family, from the home we would like to live in! I won't mention which is the best room as I want it available when I visit - they are all great but one has a shower only marginally less powerful than Niagara Falls... More

Janet is a great host, very welcoming. Had a large room with all facilities I could need - best night's sleep ever. Fabulous breakfasts all freshly cooked to order. Great location for exploring the area as train station is 5 mins walk (only 9 mins to Cambridge)

Stayed at Orchard Pond for 1 night whilst on a local "history tour". Made to feel very welcome, excellent room with first class facilities, lovely dinner cooked especially for us and superb breakfast. Thanks very much Janet.
