“A delight - we'll be back!”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

Janet gave us tea and cake in the beautiful garden when we arrived mid afternoon, and her directions to get us to the centre of Cambridge for an evening function were invaluable.

The full English breakfast in the morning was one of the best, including scrummy sausages, perfectly cooked eggs, fresh mushrooms and tomatoes - all easy to get slightly wrong but all bang on.

Bed was very comfy and we loved the huge walk in shower.

We plan to stay again later in the summer and this time we'll organise it so we can to enjoy Janet's evening meal too.

Room Tip: We loved the room with the walk in shower and wonderful view onto mature trees covered in flowering...

My husband and I stayed here after going to a wedding in Cambridge, it really was PERFECT! The location meant it was only a 12 minute taxi ride from the centre of the City, the hosts were so accommodating and didn't mind us coming back late, and as for the breakfast... it was delicious and set us up for the car journey back to London. The hosts Janet and Simon made sure we were really at home and that nothing was too much. We are definitely coming back - we can't reccommend it enough. Thank you.

I was made to feel so welcome and had a lovely relaxing stay. Janet and Simon are 'easy' hosts.

The room was large, light and beautifully appointed. I slept very well in a comfortable bed, enjoyed the huge fluffy towel and it's so nice to have not only fresh milk on the tea making tray, but Janet's own homemade biscuits.

Whittlesford is a beautiful village in its own right with thatched cottages and interesting church, but also gave me easy access to Cambridge where I enjoyed an excellent concert at Kings College. I will be back to Orchard Pond!

Room Tip: Discuss your preferences with Janet. All rooms are lovely!

Very friendly and excellent service !
We stayed here for 2 nights during the Royal air show end of may 2012 and were very pleased with the reception. Quiet location with a green garden around the house, and not too far from the trainstation Whittlesford Parkway and the Imperial War Museum. We'll be coming back.

We arrived late at night and the service was great. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious and cozy. The full English breakfast was perfect.

Very friendly and comfortable stay. great location with a good pub restaurant within easy walking distance as is the railway station with regular fast service to nearby Cambridge or to London.
All bedrooms with private or ensuite bathrooms, one of the best breakfast we have had from many B and Bs and very friendly welcome with fresh homemade biscuits to boot.
We would book again without hesitation. Thank You.

Room Tip: Big room with very large private bathroom shower or very nice room with ensuite shower.

Easily the nicest bed and breakfast we’ve ever stayed in! We wanted to visit our godson in Cambridge and found this exceptional B&B just a short car ride away. It’s a lovely, roomy house with a real “home from home” feel, and the hosts were really welcoming and helpful. Our bedroom was spacious and very comfortable, with a pretty bathroom next to it, and because it’s tucked away a bit from the rest of the house it feels very private and quiet. After a great day in Cambridge we returned to Orchard Pond, stopping for dinner at a nearby pub (the John Barleycorn). We slept like logs, and after a first-class cooked breakfast we spent a happy half-hour in the sunshine by the pond before reluctantly heading for home. Definitely our first choice next time we’re in the area!
