    Every aspect of our stay at Orchard End was enjoyable. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely owner and the welcome pack of treats was very much appreciated. The cottage was cleverly designed, beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished (inside and out!) and extremely well equipped. The beds were so very comfortable and everyone of us slept extremely well. The owners were close by and on hand if we needed anything, but they were also respectful of our privacy too. The surrounding area was beautiful and the cottage was close by to many public footpaths some of which run to nearby villages and pass through beautiful fields and farmland. There are games, books and activities available at the cottage which meant that even if the weather wasn't great we could still relax and enjoy ourselves as a family. The cottage was perfectly located for visiting nearby towns and cities either by car or by train. The local towns of Huntingdon and Ely having mainline train stations. In summary, a stay at Orchard End is a must. It is a perfect base for any type of holiday; whether it be taking long country walks, relaxing in the cottage grounds or having a day trip to a local town or city.

    Orchard End is a hidden gem,if you want peace tranquility and time to unwind relax and sit back then this is the place to do so. I cannot fault either the setting or the cottage.Immaculate,clean and with everything you need plus the welcome food gifts this is a delight.Our black labrador was enchanted with the garden its visiting rabbits and cats and the endless hours spent lazing in the sun was a sure fire winner for her,with plenty of walks nearby and "water" walks not far by car. We had the laziest of stays mainly chilling out on the deck playing cards or reading but we visited the very lovely Ely, ST.Ives and Cambridge all not far by car.Sometimes you think you want one thing busy days doing lots and yet what you get here is something you didn't realise you needed,time out and time to recover. A really awesome place can't praise it highly enough.

    When booking online you are never sure what you will be getting. However, from the moment we arrived it was a pleasure to find that our cottage was nestled amongst the trees and private. It was like being home away from home. The owner was respectful of our stay and was available only when asked. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who would like to come as a couple, or family as that the grounds allow for play. The only comment we have is that the front door sticks and has to be adjusted for easy closure, and that screens on the windows would allow opening without worry of bugs flying through.

    We had a fantastic few days at Orchard End. The accomodation was very clean, comfortable and organised. There is everything you need for a few days. It was lovely to receive a welcome pack with bread, eggs, butter and milk. The biscuits from a local bakery were exactly what we needed after a 6 hour drive! The beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. The location was great for travelling in to Cambridge via the Park and Ride. We are hoping to visit again in the summer when the weather is drier and we can get out and explore the local area more. I highly recommend a stay at Orchard End.

    We took our puppy with us to the cottage, Kerry was there to meet us and showed us round and where everything was. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the decor and furnishings great, the kitchen was set out very well and we had everything we needed. The log fire came in handy as the weather was freezing, the heaters were timed individually and one of them had a little issue which made the lounge chilly, so Kerry gave us more logs and we were absolutely fine. There was nothing to fault otherwise except one thing - we did spend a fair bit of time in the cottage as the weather was so freezing cold and snowy, and we both found the sofa really uncomfortable and difficult to relax on - sorry! Thats my only fault, otherwise I would and have recommended it to everyone!
