“A Little Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My fiancé and I stayed at Orchard Cottage for a couple of nights on our way to stay with relatives in Southend. Mick and Mandy are the perfect hosts and the accommodation was excellent all round. Our room was pristine, beautifully furnished and so cosy! The choice for breakfast was extensive and the fact that it was brought to our room well cooked and piping hot was just the icing on the cake really. Next time we will stay longer and see more of the beautiful surrounding area. Thank you Mick and Mandy...Excellent! Jane and Marc

Stayed here for 1 night when I had meetings in Cambridge over 2 days and just needed a place to sleep for the night. Room was small but clean, bathroom very modern and again clean, off-street parking and quiet location. Cooked breakfast was fine and something you wouldn't always get for the price. Difficult to fault this place for value for money

Cousin and I were travelling in the area to follow up some family history research. Found this place online and booked for two nights, in preference to a motel closer to Cambridge. And what a great choice. I love B&Bs and this was ideal. Lovely decor, very comfy beds, simple and well designed en suites - yummy breakfast, nice cutlery and crockery (and very good coffee!) and accommodated my gluten-free needs without a problem.
A minor glitch with a shower saw me immediately moved to a Queen-size room, and Mick and Mandy were wonderful hosts - interesting, knowledgeable about their adopted village and recommended the pub up the road (Duke of Wellington) for evening meals. Mandy also went out her way to find locals with the family name we were looking for, found them and arranged a meeting - then tracked us down and gave us a lift to the local with our ancestor's name! Wow!
Loved it - was hoping to get back before I returned to Australia but there wasn't time. But I will be back and for longer next time. It was super - thanks guys!

Went to a friend's wedding and stayed here for one night.
Very friendly couple looked after us very well ... great breakfast with freshly laid eggs (!) cooked to perfection in the morning.
Had a very relaxing time ... comes highly recommended.

Stayed at Orchard Cottage for one night during a trip to Cambridgeshire with my Dad to visit the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. Rooms were excellent - contemporary decor, cosy and spotlessly clean and tidy.
Breakfast is delivered to your room and was beautifully cooked and presented. Mick and Mandy made us feel very welcome and Mick even ran a map off for me with directions to Duxford and showed me around his on-site recording studio.
We ate in The Duke of Wellington - specialise in pies, what's not to like?
And Duxford is amazing if you have any interest in aviation or WW2.

As well as having a very friendly and helpful owner, this place is much cleaner, more modern and serves a far superior breakfast that the 4* golfclub/hotel down the road (that incidentally charges over double the price). Highly recommended!

Cambridge was very busy and we had a car so we decided to stay outside of Cambridge. This was a really good choice as I don't think we would have gotten the standard we did for the price we had to pay. The bed was super comfortable and bathrooms were new and clean. Breakfast was served in our room so there wasn't any continental choice. There was no public areas like a lounge that you could spend time in. All in all a good stay.
