From the moment we stepped over the front door we were made to feel extremely welcome. Tea, freshly ground coffee and home baking to welcome us after our journey. Did we need anything else? Nothing was too much trouble for Janet our hostess, we did feel extremely spoilt! Breakfasts were a delight, different fruit daily, freshly cooked full English, homemade jams and preserves. Comfortable bed with en-suite facilities and a shower to die for. Beautiful setting, we would have loved to have seen the gardens but time didn't allow for this. We stayed for 2 nights, but could easily have stayed for more................. Janet do you want to adopt us? Thank you both for a lovely break

Thank you so much for your kind and helpful comments. I enjoy all aspects of our B & B business and am very pleased that you felt welcome and enjoyed your time with us, and that the preserves and cakes went down well. We'd be delighted to see you here again - perhaps in the summer so that next time you can enjoy the garden.

We were going to to a birthday party in South Cams and wanted to stay over night as we had to head back home early the next day.
Well we were meet by Jannet at the door and she was increatibly accomidating, we were offered tea and coffee that came with a very nice piece of sponge cake. Janet was very helpful, showed us around the B&B and was able to accomidate our early departure on a Saturday morning.

Thank you to the Orchard Pond B&B for a lovely night back in Cambridgeshire we will be comming back.

We could not have chosen to stay in a more perfect place than Orchard Pond to complete our romantic return to the area where my husband and I met 54 years ago in 1959. My husband, was an RAF airman while I was a WRAF working in Air Traffic Control. We were married two years later and this is the first time we have returned. Janet and Simon at Orchard Pond were perfect hosts, sharing their comfortable, beautifully furnished house as if we were old friends. After exploring Cambridge to locate where we lived after we were married, we returned to enjoy their delightful garden in glorious sunshine complete with tea and cake.. The following morning after a delicious breakfast we left for our nostalgic visit to the RAF Duxford, now the RAF museum. I hope we will return as we left much still to see and would hope to stay once again at Orchard Pond.

The coziest and most comfortable stay in the area. Caring hosts, delicious breakfast. Bikes available on request. During warm season breakfast is served in the garden. Janet and Simon are most hospitable and caring. Whittlesford railway station is only short walk away. Recommend this place both for business and leisure trips to Cambridge or surrounding villages. Excellent quality for a more than reasonable price.

Absolutely gorgeous, would recommend it to anybody ,lovely warm feeling inside the house. Got tea,coffee,home-made fruit cake and biscuits. Garden was lovely especially as it was sunny when we went. Television in the room as well as CD player. Room are very well sized would fit 4 people in each. Amazing views from the room, you look onto fields and the water feature in the garden! Small m&s down the round instead of having to go all the way into Cambridge. Owners were really friendly and always making sure we were alright. Offer a home-cooked meal at night if wanted.Overall an amazing house and garden. Just what we needed, for a night.

Amazing how you just leave the main road and you're into an oasis of tranquility. Great welcome, lovely ambiance, peaceful night's sleep in a very comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast served outside. What's more to want? Would definitely go again!

Loved staying here. Janet and Simon are great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were superb particularly the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon from freshly laid eggs from hens kept at Orchard Park. Our room was cosy. The mattress had a topper which made the bed very comfortable. We were pleased to have an ensuite and the shower was powerful and big enough for two! The garden was a pleasant haven with the beautiful pond and pots full of flowers and having breakfast outside under the trees was wonderful. Would come back again and recommend as a great place to stay for visiting Cambridge and the Imperial War Museum.

Room Tip: I recommend the ensuite bedroom upstairs
