Excellent is not enough for the rating. Everything about the venue was far above our expectations. It was the first time we had visited the Cotswolds and will defiantly be returning again. The friendliness of the locals was far better then we would have received in our own area.

Just back after a very pleasant stay at Cranbourne House, where our room (the "Notgrove" room) and huge bathroom get top marks (except a squeeking bed). Breakfast was excellent, and Emma/John were extremely helpful: drying our clothes after walks in the rain, giving us maps and advice about where to eat and what to see and making our stay 100%...

Really enjoyable stay and John and Emma are the perfect hosts. John's breakfast was superb and Emma's cakes are excellent. You would struggle to find any faults and we will be returning.We also enjoyed our meals and refreshments in the locally recommended pub The Mousetrap Inn.

Booked last minute for a one night stay at the lovely Cranbourne House. Sue provided us with lots of useful information and the loan of a couple of maps so we could go off and explore the area around lower and upper Slaughters which was fabulous. The freshly made cake in our room was much appreciated upon our return, as... More

This b&b is amazing, really can't recommend this place enough. From the moment you are greeted by Emma who shows you around, gives you loads of local information to the chef John who cooks a mighty fine breakfast you won't go far wrong. Superb value and quality and would not hesitate to book up to stay here again.

Cranbourne House is a lovely B&B, very clean, beautifully decorated and wonderfully furnished. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the breakfasts varied and very tasty. The owners go the extra mile providing freshly baked cakes / biscuits every afternoon and ensuring visitors have all the information they need about walks, places to visit and eat. I have nothing...

Good Morning, and firstly we wanted to say thank you for taking time to write such a lovely review about Cranbourne B&B. Bourton is indeed a beautiful place and we know that some of the shops have to cater for all sides of the tourism industry. Unfortunately the village can become busy with bus coaches visiting for the day and... More
