We stayed for two nights in Room 3 and we were very impressed with our whole experience. The lovely seating area in front of the property allowed a great space to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a tipple from the nice bar that is definitely a bonus for a small B & B. Mark offers evening meals if... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Used to be a regular & have returned after a few years. It's still as lovely as ever & it was so nice to see Mark, Val & Bertie again. It's as pretty as a picture. Flowers beautiful on the terrace. Our room was lovely & Mark your cooking is still top notch. Delicious. Hopefully another... More

We stayed at Garth Cottage for a few nights. It has a super location overlooking the river and valley as well as high rocks. Mike was most welcoming and offered tea and cake on arrival, there was also an option to book an evening meal. We found bedroom 2 was far more spacious than bedroom 5, and the larger room... More

Stayed one night at this delightful B & B. We were greeted by the great host who made us a welcome cup of tea and piece of cake. Ou room which overlooked the river was immaculate and very comfortable with Tea/Coffee making facilities and basically lacked nothing. The breakfast menu was extensive and of a high standard. I will have... More

A one night stay at this delightful guest house was more than B & B, it was being included as part of a family. Late afternoon spent talking on the stoop, magnificent evening meal and breakfast. Thank you to the Eden family.

Just spent a night at Garth Cottage to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. First time at this B&B but certainly wont be the last. Val, Mark and Bertie make you feel as if you are part of the family. Tea and cake on arrival, lovely view from the room, top notch breakfast and Mark even cooked for us on our... More

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...

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... 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
