Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Responded 10 Jul 2023
Thank you so much for your review. I'm sorry you found the bed to be narrow. It is a standard double, but when we come to replace it we can look for a larger size. I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and your stay overall.

We had a one night stay at Orchard Pond with our son. Very comfortable and friendly. Janet and Simon were lovely and accommodating. Also had a nice meal at the Tickell Inn. We'll be back as I suspect IWM Duxford is going to be a hit. Thank you

I have stayed in this B&B many times now. Always good clean and warm. I sleep well. The area is peaceful and the breakfast is brilliant and very fresh. I try and book this as far in advance as possible as sometimes it is fully booked. I then have to rough it at a another hotel.

Stayed one night at the Orchard Pond in March 2020. The hosts were most welcoming (I was offered a cup of tea on arrival). The room was spacious and pleasant, with its double aspect. Free range eggs from rescued hens for breakfast was most appreciated. Thank you.

Yet again another excellent overnight stay at Orchard Pond Bed and Breakfast. Janet and Simon are congenial hosts and can't do enough to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Rooms are quaint and lovely and the food, all home made, is to die for. What's not to like.

Everything you'd want from a B&B. Friendly, warm, clean... I could go on. Fantastic breakfast in a lovely period dining room. Beautiful surroundings, and only a short walk to local pub and restaurant. Would strongly recommend.

A lovely house and a lovely host Janet made my stay very comfortable! The house is a short train distance from the center in a quiet area. Very nice breakfast served by Jane made me feel like a queen! The room was clean and with a nice view, the birds were singing.

Stayed for a few nights whilst working at addenbrookes. Alot of b&bs it feels like you're staying in a spare room of a family home, which I'm not too keen on sometimes, but this feels different. The hosts were also very lovely and accommodating. There's a really good breakfast with plenty of variety and the room was huge. One other plus is the 2 opposing windows so you get a through draft. Great in the summer when it's normally stuffy. Overall would definitely recommend.
