Garth Cottage, Symonds Yat - What Our Customers Say

"Brilliant B & B in a beautiful setting
Stayed here for 4 nights for the first time and would highly recommend it! Mark and his mother Val could not be more welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Mark even helped my husband carry his fishing tackle down to the river bank and Val bandaged up his cut…"

"The perfect escape
Garth Cottage is situated on the banks of the River Wye at Symonds Yat and is the perfect place for either a quiet holiday enjoying the beautiful surroundings or for those wanting a more active holiday there are plenty of choices in the area. Our room was very clean and we had a great view up and down the river. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and provided a wonderful breakfast."

"Excellent… Again!
Visited Garth Cottage again on my birthday this year and it was as friendly, clean and comfortable as it was last year when we visited.

The hospitality afforded by Mark, Val and Bertie is 1st Class and once again the freshly cooked food was excellent, eating breakfast and evening meal here twice, visiting a local pub on the remaining evening, which was nice but nowhere near as gorgeous as the food prepared by Mark at Garth Cottage, a must if you stay here.

Hope to visit again."

"perfect b&b
We have just arrived home from a 3 night stay . We were a party of 2 couples from the warm welcome we received on arrival (tea & cake) to the friendly send off on our departure we could not fault our stay. The rooms were spotlessly clean with magnificent views of the River Wye from the windows. The Eden family were pleased to do anything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The lovely breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious as was the evening meal cooked for us by Mark on our second evening, even choosing our own menu. We will definitely be returning to this truly delightful B&B."

What a wonderful welcome we received from a genuinely warm and friendly family.

We had their very best room (Room 2) with double aspect windows to allow in lots of glorious views of the River. Their location is suberb with private parking; we couldn't hope for any better.

The cottage was exceptionally clean and had a warm homely feel to it.

Breakfast was superb. Really set us up for the day ahead.

We have already booked to stay again. Highly recommended."

"Loved it !!
Is there an extra star I can give ?? Wonderful location, breakfast is superb, looked after as if you're one of the family. What more could you ask !! No need to go out in the evening if you've had a hard days sightseeing, Mark will serve you an evening meal better than most restaurants."

"Such nice people
Mark and Val are the best of hosts. They are so eager to make your stay as pleasurable as possible and the rooms look out on such a beautiful setting. Life runs at such a more a sedate pace here but its quite evident the Eden family have put a lot of effort in behind the scenes. Their breakfasts could accommodate the most demanding of palates.

We picked the location purely for a means to get to the Malvern Autumn Show, but had we realised how lucky we had been with the accommodation and the location we would have booked a much longer break. Highly recommended!"

"Stunning Location
Had a short stay here to enjoy the autumn colours in the Forest of Dean and I couldn't have picked a prettier place. The view from the bedroom window was just wonderful. A very homely guest house, lovely friendly hosts who gave lots of info about the local area. One thing I didn't pick up from the website info was that there is no tv in the room, quite unusual these days; there is a tv lounge that the info mentions. Not really a problem especially in the summer as most of the time would be spent outside looking at that stunning view. Very clean comfortable room with en-suite. Comfy bed, pillows were a bit lumpy though. Fabulous breakfast, fruit and freshly cooked eggs, bacon, the usual kind of thing. A very generous meal kept me going most of the day.

Garth Cottage might be a little old fashioned but if you want to be looked after well and have a spotless comfortable room with a view that would be hard to beat Garth Cottage will see you right."

"Bank holiday break
Had a fantastic bank holiday break here. Made to feel sooooo welcome as if you are one of the family. Room spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent so much choice and the hosts Mark and Val could not do enough for you, best breakfast ever, poached eggs on fried bread was delicious. Would definitely stay here again, could not recommend enough."

"As good as it can get
Sheer bliss! We spent a long weekend here recently and plan to return again and again. The setting: simply a little corner of Heaven, overlooking the magnificent and serene River Wye. The property: comfortable and spotless. The Eden family: Val and Mark, the ultimate hosts. Attentive, professional, caring and very friendly. The food: the best breakfasts we have ever enjoyed anywhere, ever! The evening meals are superb too - Mark's roast duck with all the trimmings is hugely recommended. The location: Right next to a good pub which serves proper beer and where we enjoyed the magical Morris Dancers on Sunday afternoon. There are riverside walks where we hardly saw another soul and the boat trip was delightful. Symonds Yat is within easy striking distance of many other popular destinations - we enjoyed a day trip to the Abergavenny Food Festival - although it's so beautiful that you won't want to stray far. If you want to treat your partner, family or just yourself, there could be no better place to do it than Garth Cottage. Thank you Mark and Val!

My husband and visited Symonds Yat for the first time this summer and decided to stay at Garth Cottage for two nights. We were welcomed by Mark with tea and biscuits and shown to our lovely room which had spectacular views up and down the river Wye, which runs right in front of the Cottage.

Our evening meal, which we booked in advance, was delicious and all home cooked by Mark!

Locality is ideal and the friendly family, who share their home with you, made our stay really enjoyable and relaxing.

Would highly recommend and go there again."
