We were stranded in Peterborough whilst visiting a sick relative and contacted Orchard House on the off chance for a room, For some reason the city centre hotels and all other accommodation we tried was unaccountably full that night. Although having a break from guests, Peter and Jane offered to make us up a room which we gratefully accepted -... More

Stayed for one night on our way to Duxford Air Museum. Jane & Peter have created the ideal B&B by keeping the character of a beautiful property but at the same time providing very comfortable accomadation. We stayed in the Victoria Plumb room which is slightly smaller than Brambley Apple but has a larger and superb bathroom. Both rooms are... More

This was the second time I have visited, and it was so reassuring to know that I would find a very comfortable home away from home. Jane and Peter are more than welcoming and are ever ready to help with any particular dietary needs, or information, or anything that might crop up. I have no hesitation in recommending Orchard House.

Orchard House is the perfect B&B. Peter and Jane have made a tremendous effort to make it very special and their attention to detail is immaculate. Our room, the Bramley Apple suite was beautiful, and we even had matching his and hers bath robes and there were White Company bath products provided. Peter is a ninja when it come to... More

I have stayed at this B&B a number of times when away on business. It's one of the best B&Bs I have every stayed in, vastly superior to most other establishments. The owners are charming, attentive and kind. I can't recommend it highly enough.

As the other reviews attest, Orchard House is all you could want in a B&B - a beautiful thatched cottage with quality food, welcoming hosts, amazing rooms and a decent local pub just down the road. The extra effort Peter and Jane go to as hosts was really special and much appreciated!

A place not to miss. Excellent choice by us, the cottage is picture postcard perfect and the room a delight. Every attention to detail is taken in this 5 star rated B&B, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was one of the best ever, great seasonal fruit salad.

Stayed 2 nights over Burghley horse trials weekend. This was our second stay. We stayed last year for Burghley and have booked again for next year. Lovely comfortable cottage and the room had everything you could want. Great quality breakfasts cooked just how you want it and at whatever time. Lovely hosts, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Orchard House for week when we visited Alwalton in connection with my niece's wedding. The place was perfect for us: a five minute walk from my brother's place; a B&B with great atmosphere, but with all the mod cons; great breakfasts each day; and exceptionally nice hosts in Jane and Peter. The place... More

Very clean room with themed character, very clean and comfortable super king-sized bed and pristine bedding. Appreciated the nice extra touches-dressing gowns/toiletries for our use. Nice to have fresh milk provided in our own mini fridge and chocolate biscuits.
