Cranborne House

Exterior Cranborne House in the sun


In light of Covid-19, we are currently only open to Key Workers. As of July 4th, it is our intention to re-open to the general public as per Government guidelines. We will be putting new measures in place to adhere to social distancing, such as staggered checking-in times and the use of the shared facilities, such as the kitchen. We are also booking out all rooms for 24 hours between guests to enable a thorough airing and cleaning of the rooms and common surfaces. 


Prices from £30 Per Person Per Night

Newly refurbished in March 2020, Cranborne House is situated at the end of a quiet leafy pedestrian cul de sac, and is a  locally listed 'Old House' of Poole, circa mid to late 1800's boasting many original Victorian features such as its beautiful cast iron veranda. It is in close walking distance to the train and bus stations, Poole Speedway Stadium, the Lighthouse Theatre, the local hospital, the Dolphin Shopping Centre and the Quay as well as a short drive to the ferry terminal.

Cranborne House offers beautifully furnished 'room only' accommodation in this non-smoking home with 1 twin and 1 family room (sleeps 3)  located on the ground floor and 3 double rooms on the first floor.  All rooms have private en-suites with luxury bath and shower.

Cranborne House is a family run business and Sue and Andy offer you a warm welcome, whether it is a one night or weekend getaway or those seeking a long term let. Rooms are available to business employees, contractors, medical staff, students as well as the general public. We do not stipulate a minimum number of nights, however, for rooms that are booked for one night only, a £10 supplement will be applied to our daily rate.
