Stayed for 3 nights in August and highly recommend this delightful B & B in a truly beautiful location. A very warm welcome from Mark and Val, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Very cosy room with huge comfortable bed, lots of nice touches like hand cream and shower gel and wonderful views of the river. Very hearty cooked... More

We'd known of Garth Cottage's reputation for several years but had always, until Monday 4th, stayed at Symonds Yat self catering. We couldn't fault it in any way and the hospitality shown by Mark, Val and Bertie was outstanding. If you want the best B&B in Symonds Yat look no further. We shall be returning.

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... More

Firstly, the location is awesome. Garth Cottage has a prime situation on the waterfront, in the unbelievably scenic Wye valley. Symonds Yat does get a bit over-run in the daytime, but once the crowds have gone, the tranquillity is breathtaking. It is very relaxing, just to sit and take in the river view, either from the bedroom window, or from... More

I am a little reluctant to say exactly what I think about Garth Cottage for fear of it becoming too popular and me not being able to get a room there again!! As you can probably guess from the preamble, it is amazing. Such a quaint, homely and traditional B&B. Offering extremely clean & comfortable rooms (yes, we had Room... More

I didn't stay at Garth Cottage, but booked my older friend in last minute after a very chilly night at the neighbouring campsite and an unplanned dip in the river Wye after canoeing. The owners could not have be more accommodating and caring, fetching him a cup of tea and cake, turning the heating up and helping me and my... More
