What a comfortable stay we had here, as always. Our breakfasts were excellent, setting us up for the day. A friendly welcome is to be expected from Val and Mark. This is a very placed to explore this lovely area.

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.

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...
