Our 2 night stay here was the best B & B experience ever! We are in our 70s and over the years, have seen the good, the bad and the downright ugly - but Mark & Val set a standard for others to aim for. The food, which is of the highest quality is sourced from local suppliers - the...

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 foot! Bertie, Marks dad is always ready for a...

What a wonderful place to stay. I have just spent two night at Garth Cottage and was astounded by the standard of service offered. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark & Val. They made me welcome immediately with a cup of tea and cake - and a pleasant chat. My room was really nice and had a fabulous view...

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...

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...
