This is a lovely cottage if you need a restful break. A couple of lovely walks from the cottage so not having to use the car! We were able to have our shopping delivered just after we arrived which was great. If you forget anything there is a local shop about 1.5 miles away. Will plan on returning. 🙂

A very comfortable and clean cottage from which to explore Symonds Yat and South Wales. We would definitely like to book the cottage again, it was perfect in every way! — James, 18 Apr 2021
Alice’s place was fantastic - tranquil location by a lovely church, huge bedrooms, and dining/lounge area, secure garden for dogs and kids. Highly recommend a stay here. — Joe, 27 Dec 2020
We had a fantastic weekend for my mum’s 60th. The house was perfect and so cosy. We were surprised by how roomy it was, the house felt like a home away from home. The surrounding countryside was so beautiful with great walks from the front door. We’ll definitely recommend to friends and hope to be back. — Bethan, 12 Oct 2020
As 4 old golfers the cottage was perfect, the rooms are so big there were no arguments this year. Good for many golf courses Monmouth GC is a beautiful course. Also plenty of room to lounge about in the evening and great cooking facilities. — John, 18 Sep 2020
Excellent home for a group holiday. We were three families with young kids and had everything we needed and plenty of space. Lots of activities in the area for a lovely holiday. Will stay again. — Abbey, 02 Sep 2020
This was our second visit to Ganarew Cottage. We were there for a family weekend and the cottage was absolutely fantastic. Very spacious in quiet village with Monmouth only 10 mins away. Cottage is very well furnished with 4 decent sized bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en suite. There was a bathroom and toilet on the first floor and another toilet downstairs. Large and well equipped kitchen and a handy games room in the garage. Would definitely recommend👍😁 — Robert, 06 Jan 2020
A beautifully presented cottage with everything you could possibly need. Huge bedrooms and very spacious living space. Freezer and extra fridge in the garage/ games room a bonus. Lots of games for all ages. A very comfortable place to stay. Attention to detail was spot on. The kitchen was very well equipped. Loved the plastic crockery and cutlery for the little people in our group. The soap by each sink was an extra bit of luxury. It was beautifully clean, warm, cozy AND spacious (if thats possible!) The Christmas tree and decorations were very tasteful and made my birthday weekend with my family a very special time. — Joyce, 25 Nov 2019
We had an amazing time staying at Ganarew for my husbands birthday with some friends and our children. The children had a field day in the games room, running to it first thing as soon as they woke up. My 6 year old is now obsessed with table football. For working parents who just need a break - this is where you truly can get one. — Tina, 22 Nov 2019
Excellent cottage in great location - seeing the stars in the sky at night and hearing the birds at sunrise - pure bliss The cottage itself happily accommodated 8 of us 6 Adults 2 young children ( it’s well catered for young children felt like nothing would be too much trouble) in clean very comfortable beds and linen, comfy sofas, great dining table which we had some lovely family time around , whether eating or playing board games, we did take our own but found the games room in the cottage to be fab at keeping everybody amused. The local area is stunning make some time to get out and about and explore its well worth it, 3 days was just not long enough — Sarah, 07 Aug 2019
Beautiful cottage, a lot bigger than I imagined. Our first holiday with our new addition to the family and it was the perfect place. Countryside on your doorstep with some beautiful walks and lots of fresh air. We loved the little touches that were left for us so thank you very much. — Amy Collett, 29 Mar 2018
"Fabulous home from home"
We arrived tired after a frustrating journey in the pouring rain but felt immediately happy and at home in this lovely house. Great idea to welcome us with edible treats. It was very clean and nicely presented with lovely homely touches - tasteful art and nice furniture. The beds were a good quality with cotton sateen sheets. Our party of 8 had plenty of space in the sitting/ dining area and in their spacious bedrooms, the extra nursery room with cot would be good idea too if you needed that too. The garage easily held our 5 bikes and kayak which was helpful. Our dog came too though he wasn't allowed upstairs with a helpful stair gate there were dog treats too for him on arrival. Only slight point would be fridge small for the 8 (3 adults and 5 teens) and slight shortage of big saucepans etc, but nice to have electric whisk and plenty of mugs! There is a rain shower in main bathroom which was great.
The location was good - close to Monmouth with nice local shops, Waitrose and Lidl. Also easy trip up to Ross on Wye because of proximity to A40. So much to do round the area. I wish we could have stayed for 2 weeks.

“Lovely Place to stay, very convenient for the Forest of Dean”
5 of 5 stars
It was lovely to be welcomed with a home made strawberry cake and basics to keep us going. The cottage has everything you need and is a very relaxing place to spend a holiday in this area. Katie was on hand to help with anything we needed. We came for a walking and cycling holiday and will be coming again.
