John and Emma were gracious hosts and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. The beautifully furnished rooms added to the wonderful ambience and the breakfasts were exceptional. The scrumptious home cooked cakes were an extra bonus for afternoon tea which we enjoyed so much. The location was excellent being only a short walk to the village of Bourton on... More

What a marvellous four days we had at Cranbourne House, it really was the most exquisite place to stay. The breakfasts were out of this world and your unbeatable hospitality made us feel we didn’t want to return home. The breakfasts were wonderful, such a lot of choice and all locally sourced produce. The home-made cakes in the afternoon were... More

Fabulous welcome by Emma and tour of Cranbourne House. Such a lovely girl and a beautiful place to stay just a two minute walk into the main area of Bourton on the Water. Facilities, cleanliness, food, attention to detail was excellent and could not find fault at all. Lovely to meet Emma's parents too and looking forward to recommending Cranbourne... More

John and Emma have created a charming retreat in the heart of the Cotswolds! The breakfast was the delicious, the rooms comfortable and outfitted with everything you could need, and the hosts were gracious, helpful, and accommodating. You could very easily walk to the local pubs and restaurants as well. Overall, a wonderful experience! Thank you again, John and Emma!

Cranbourne House takes B&B to another level. It compares with some of the 4 and 5 star hotels we have stayed in around the world and as always it's the people that make the difference. John and Emma are a hard working team that made us feel at home the moment you met them. They make it look easy because... More

This is a well-run B&B. John and Emma were lovely hosts, helpful and pleasant without being intrusive. It's located on a quiet street just a short stroll to the busy part of Bourton-on-the-Water. Bourton-on-the-Water is not really my cup of tea, being a little too crowded and busy with tourists, but it has a number of restaurants and services, and... More

Lovely room (westcote) with very comfortable bed and plenty of space. Good helpful hosts and a very convenient location near the town, but away from the busy main road. Disappointing, almost non existent wifi in the room and at breakfast the fruit salad did not eventuate even after 8.45. (we had booked for 8.15am). All else was up to standard... More
