Barbara is an accomplished hostess who is charming and very helpful. We had complex requirements with two couples checking in after midnight on both nights. Barbara was very flexible in meeting our needs. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathroom and shower was spacious and clean. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and extra blankets and pillows if needed. Breakfast is served in the large dining room and was freshly cooked to order, the food was delicious and set us up for the day. Overall excellent value for money and great quality. We will stay again if we are in the area.
Wonderful place to stay in the picturesque village of Steeple Bumpstead. The house was picture perfect with a clean, spacious room. Barbara is a very accomodating host and looked after us very well. Highly recommended
We were given a lovely welcome by Barbara (who was also very understanding about a potential change to our arrival time), and the house was everything we needed; clean, comfortable and close to Audley End House. Breakfast was lovely and we all had a lovely chat with our host! If we are back in the area we would love to come back. Thanks again Barbara.
Barbara kindly hosted us for the perfect short break. Her house is deceptively large, with comfortable bedrooms, a lovely lounge and a sun-
Barbara is a lovely and welcoming hostess. We felt there almost like home. I really enjoyed a comfortable bed, and peaceful environment. Delicious breakfasts were motivation to get out of bed. I will be coming back.
A great stay at Orchard House. Barbara was very welcoming and allowed us to arrive early to enable us all to get ready for a wedding. She had arranged cabs for us to and from the wedding as well. A nice comfortable bed followed by a great breakfast was just what we needed. Would definitely recommend and if ever we’re in the area again we would definitely return. Thank you
Barbara was the perfect host. Our rooms were clean, bright and airy and the beds were really comfortable. The breakfast, in the words of my grandchildren, was scrumptious! It was a pity we didn't get time to spend in the beautiful garden, maybe next time.
Thank you Barbara.
We had a very comfortable stay at Orchard House -
Barbara was very responsive on messages both before and after booking, and was very accommodating with the arrival time and just all around great throughout
We enjoyed our stay with Barbara and were made to feel welcome and spoilt with the breakfast. Barbara's home is lovely and the garden is beautiful. We would recommend a stay here.
My stay at Orchard House, 26 North Street, Steeple Bumpstead.
I had the opportunity to stay at the above Bed and Breakfast.
The location is very central to the town with good parking space. Well-
Though my stay was rather short, I will definitely be using Barbara's BnB once I am in the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire/Essex area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short family holiday at Orchards! Three under fives can be stressful -
Barbara was a fantastic host, making us all feel at home and relaxed.
We were quite a challenge for her as we virtually took over Orchard House for three nights as we descended from all over the UK for a family wedding in the village at the weekend.
All rooms are comfortable, clean and well stocked with tea and coffee supplies, bathrooms clean, light and spacious and the use of the communal lounge much needed.
We would all recommend Orchard House to anyone.
Thank you so much for making our extended family holiday so enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed spending time in your beautiful garden and were very grateful for the flexibility you showed us when catering for breakfast especially as a member of our party is disabled.
The bedrooms are big and tastefully decorated and Everything worked perfectly.
We’ll see you again we hope.
We stayed at Orchard House to attend a concert nearby. The location was perfect with an easy drive and also close to Saffron Walden which was fabulous for shopping the next day with a market and nice cafes. It was a very comfortable homely stay with the very welcoming host serving up an excellent breakfast around a dining table. We were able to enjoy some sunshine in her beautiful garden before leaving too. Great spot for a stay with friends and family.
We only stayed one night but it was so good -
Thank you so much
