Reviewed 28 October 2013

Don't let the somewhat drab street-side exterior deter you from visiting this super B&B - we drove up and down a few times on a wet and windy Sunday night before spotting the small sign announcing Orchard Cottage at the entrance - and boy, it was worth it! This cool and relaxing B&B is set in a courtyard behind the pretty thatched rear of the main building, our rooms part of a converted outhouse. The decor manages to cleverly integrate original character with classy and stylish modern features. Our host Mick brought fresh milk for tea before we'd even sat down - a nice touch carried through to Orchard Cottage's policy of bringing guests' breakfasts (chosen from a ticklist the night before, and vegetarians well catered for) to their rooms at the requested time. Beds are blissful, en suites roomy and efficient - though a not-very-bright previous guest had evidently decided to ignore the owners' polite and discreet notice about what not to flush down the loo. Lots of reading material and local-menu info in the hall, plenty of parking, and friendly but non-pushy proprietors. Mandy and Mick have got the formula spot on - when we tried to re-book a night for the journey home from East Anglia to Devon, there wasn't a chance of squeezing in again - fully booked, as seems to be the well-deserved norm.

We have just spent 4 nights staying at Orchard Cottage in Willingham. Accommodation is perfect; the rooms are modern and kept very clean. The highlight was breakfast which is delivered to you fresh every morning! Owners are very relaxed and leave you be. Nice location and would stay again if passing in the future.

We've passed this B&B many times on the way to visit friends in Willingham but had no cause to stay there until we attended a party last weekend. Far & away the best B&B I have ever stayed in. The room was immaculate - clean & comfortable. Mick was an attentive host but unobtrusive. He provided fresh milk for a cuppa when we arrived and was prompt with our delicious breakfast the following morning. I just wish we had another excuse to stay there!

It is difficult to find something fresh to write as my experience echoes those of previous contributors. Excellent value for money, sublime breakfast, caring hosts and lovely accommodation. My only comment would be that the sign to the front of the property could perhaps do with being a little larger as I missed it as I was driving into the village. But that is a minor point. If ever in the area with work again, it would be definitely somewhere I would return to. Thank you for providing just what the weary traveller needs!

We had a 2 night stay at Orchard Cottage while meeting family who were camping in Willingham. The owners are welcoming and helpful but also discreet. The accommodation is excellent, spotlessly clean with a modern, high quality bathroom. The twin beds were very comfortable and ensured a good night's sleep. Breakfast is ordered the previous evening and brought to the room piping hot and cooked to perfection. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Orchard Cottage.

We stayed here for one night when we were going to a friends wedding. It was absolutely lovely! The owner was very friendly, the room was very modern and immaculate. We were brought fresh milk to make tea which was a nice touch. Breakfast is brought to your room and was very good. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed it - one of the best B&B's we have stayed in.
