My wife and I joined her parents, brother, and his partner for a weekend away at the Cranbourne House in Bourton on the Water. We had a great weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cranbourne House. The house itself is very modern and extremely well maintained. The rooms were large comfortably appointed. Fresh pieces of cake greeted us... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Notgrove room which was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The B&B is in a perfect location just a short walk into Bourton. I would highly recommend this B&B and would not hesitate to stay here again. Overall stay was excellent.

Having stayed in a number of very good and very bad hotels, both for pleasure and work, this is a great B&B and I really can’t fault it. Location wise it is off the main street of the village – which is nice but equally everything is in very easy walking distance. John and Emma are not you just welcoming... More

It is hard to disentangle our disappointment with Bourton-on-the-Water from our experience of Cranbourne House. Bourton was not what we had expected at all: over-run by tourist buses and full of shops selling a dispiriting selection of tackiness and tea "shoppes" that should have been put out of their misery decades ago. Jackie had booked and fallen prey to the... More

Good Morning, and I must start by saying that when I read this review I was slightly shocked and more exasperated about the way you have reviewed Bourton-on-the-Water as a village instead of our establishment, Cranbourne B&B. I would kindly like to point out that if you wanted to review the village, you should have reviewed the village - this... More

The B&B is in a great location, easy walking distance to the village. Room was spacious and clean.Nice touches like cake, biscuits and selection of tea's in the room.
