This lovely country house lies just a walk (or short drive) up the hill from Bourton on the Water set in beautiful lawned gardens surrounded by woodland. Whilst it is on the main road and you can hear traffic passing the views are so peaceful. Their breakfast is delightful and plenty of it. I had the small double room at... More

We had a very pleasant one night stay at the B&B which is nicely situated just outside Bourton, away from the hustle and bustle of the village. Made to feel welcome, and spent the night in a nice clean spacious room, and in the morning a good breakfast set us on our way. Followed John the owner's recommendation for a... More

The room was clean and a good size. The shower was a little moldy. There was some sweets in the room which were clearly very old, think they used to be hard boiled, but they had gone soft. I couldn't help but feel slightly uncomfortable about asking for things, for example, prior to my arrival I emailed the b&b and... More

We arrived in "downtown" Bourton-on-the-Water for the hike on the Warden's Way/Windrush Way to Winchcombe and back. The Ridge was a little hard to find and involved quite a bit of a hike up "The Ridge" to get there (did not know to take a cab), but we were warmly greeted and cared for. The breakfast was wonderful, and the... More

The Ridge is not located in the village as was advertised, but quite a walk on a busy, unlit main road. The host was the most unwelcoming we have ever experienced at a B&B. The room however was a great size and very clean, despite this would not stay here again.

This B&B is a 15-20 minute walk in the pitch dark from the centre of Bourton on the Water, but only 5 mins in the car. The rooms are nice and comfortable, no complaints there. Breakfast, served only between 8.30 and 9.15, is nice - excellent scrambled egg but cheap horrible sausages. The host is at first helpful and polite... More

Spent a long weekend, the breakfast was excellent in quality and quantity. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable, and good size room and bathroom. The surrounding gardens are very nice in a quite setting. Host was charming and helpful. In all the an excellent experience and very good value for money.

My daughters and I spent three nights, 7-15-14 through 7-18-14, at The Ridge in the village of Bourton-On-The-Water. Because the taxi we had arranged for did not show in the nearby village of Moreton-in-Marsh at 9:00 at night, we were stranded at the train station. When we were able to reach our host at The Ridge, he was kind enough... More

We are most disappointed to hear such comments after all the considerable extra effort spent with these guests. We received calls after 9pm advising us that they awaited their taxi but after a second call we offered to collect them from a local hotel near the station at no cost to themselves. The round trip of 20 miles was completed... More
