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.

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...

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

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
