This is a charming B&B in a charming village, and the location allows easy walks to the picturesque center of town along the river. The town is full of tourists who pour from coaches in the daytime but are absent at night, yet it's important to book ahead if you want certain places for dinners at the pubs. Sidewalks roll... More

This was our first trip to the Cotswolds, and Bourton-on-the-Water was "the" perfect town for our stay (venturing out for day walks, etc.). Emma and John are incredibly warm, inviting hosts, and the inn has a true Cotswolds feel. We felt instantly at home and easily could have stayed a week to enjoy daily walks, reading a book in the...

We left bustling London to drive to Burton-on-the-Water and Cranbourne House. The B&B was most welcoming,warm and relaxing. John helped with our check in, which was a breeze and showed us the layout of the main house and our room 'Windrush' in the annex. While there were a small number of stairs that weren't too arduous, we had luggage for... More

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. It is only a 5 minute walk to the main street. Extensive breakfast in the morning at set times. Clean and comfortable room. All in all a very enjoyable experience. We stayed 4 nights during August 2014. We were able to explore much of the Cotswold area by using Cranbourne House as our base. Highly... More

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!
