Peter and Jane were perfect hosts for our stay in Alwalton-Peterborough at their Orchard House B&B, a renovated English cottage complete with thatched roof in a quaint and peaceful village where Henry Royce, founder of Rolls-Royce, was born. It’s rare that a lodging establishment has garnered all excellent ratings (except for one Very Good) on tripadvisor, but they surely deserve... More

Lovely place to stay. The room had plenty of character. Pretty garden to sit in and relax. Very friendly owners (but not over intrusive). Exceptionally clean. Excellent breakfast. Very good value. Fully recommend.

Excellent stay after busy journey to and from London. Lovely house in quiet village with beautifully appointed room and, vitally, comfortable bed. Glossy bathroom with White Company toiletries added to the pleasant experience. We enjoyed the super breakfast, comparable to a luxury hotel. Would definitely recommend Orchard House.

Really pleasant stay in a lovely, well presented old cottage. The rooms are fresh, clean and full of character. Super friendly owners made us feel perfectly at home and to cap it off we had a tasty, wholesome breakfast. We fully recommend a stay at Orchard House.

Beautiful settings - Alwalton is a charming village with a gorgeous pub 150 yards away that does great food. The rooms are elegant without any stuffiness. An old property but stylishly decorated and feels luxurious. Peter and his wife are excellent hosts; it feels as if they are welcoming old friends rather than paying guests. Really comfortable bed, all the... More

What a wonderful place to stay in the Peterborough area. I had to be in the area on business and wanted a quiet place to stay. The house is absolutely beautiful and the room was extremely comfortable. I loved the interior decoration and all the attention to detail that has been put into the rooms and house. Peter and Jane...

Warm friendly welcome and lovely stay. Peter, Jane and Barney thank you so much for a lovely stay. Myself and my husband (newlywed) went to stay here at very late notice and it took us several hours to travel, Peter had sorted the room (Victoria Plum- beautiful with slipper bath, robes, chilled water, and fresh milk for the hot drinks....

Orchard House is a great B&B to spend a night or more. Jane and Peter are warm, welcoming, friendly hosts, happy to share and discuss. The cottage is beautiful and charming, with thatch, wooden beams and doors, stone walls. We loved it! Moreover you could have a walk through the meadow and the river close to the house. A few...

We recently spent two highly enjoyable nights at the Orchard house. Peter's recommendations for dinner (the Cuckoo), lunch (a casual stroll around Stamford), and play (a perfect pitch and putt just a few minutes away) were all spot on. The accommodation and breakfast were lovely as was the company. A perfect stay.
