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...

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... More

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... More

This was our first visit to Garth Cottage. What a super place, home from home. Rooms were spotless, breakfasts always excellent and tea and cakes served every afternoon...nothing was too much trouble. A special thank you to Mark, Val and his lovely father for making our stay so memorable. We will be returning to this beautiful Cottage overlooking the river... More

My wife and I stayed at Garth Cottage for a couple of nights and really regret not booking it for longer, the owners could not be more accommodating. On our arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our room that had a stunning view of the river, we were then offered tea a cake! A lovely touch and one... More

This is our sixth year at Garth Cottage and we always have a fantastic welcome. The family are lovely and Mark's breakfasts are superb. ( my partner said no, they are out of this world!) The location right on the riverside is beautiful. Rooms are always spotlessly clean and nothing is too much trouble. Mark, Val and Bertie always make... More

This is such a Home from Home, Great food, Warm welcome and Family run. This will not suit everyone but for those who appreciate cleanliness and surroundings more than (modern) style this is absolutely fantastic. To wake up and open the curtains to that view..... Wonderful.
