    “We were very pleased with our choice for the purposes of a family get together.”

    We were 4 couples and a baby across 3 generations and it suited us very well to be in such quiet and picturesque immediate surroundings. Also we were glad to be on higher ground so were not too badly affected by the floods (Feb 2020), We were pleased with the amount of space in the property and the arrangement of rooms. There is a party wall from the living room to the care home next door which during the evening transmitted the sounds of washing machine spin cycle which might bother some but ...

    We were 4 couples and a baby across 3 generations and it suited us very well to be in such quiet and picturesque immediate surroundings. Also we were glad to be on higher ground so were not too badly affected by the floods (Feb 2020), We were pleased with the amount of space in the property and the arrangement of rooms. There is a party wall from the living room to the care home next door which during the evening transmitted the sounds of washing machine spin cycle which might bother some but once we had identified what this was we did not find it intrusive. The weather was wet and windy following 2 major storms so we spent less time out than we had hoped, but again that was OK as we just wanted to spend time together. For this reason we could have made use of a few board games and books. The store room/garage was brilliant for cleaning up the dog after muddy walks and we made good use of the washing machine there and dishwasher in the kitchen. The crockery supplied was only enough for one meal so we had to run the dishwasher each time - some extra mugs and plates would have been useful. There was a folder of local information but we found a lot of it was badly out of date, for example the entrance prices for Goodrich castle were more than double what we had read and there were several eateries that had closed or radically changed. These are small criticisms, overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this cottage.

The property

Whitchurch 1.8 miles.

A stunning, stone terraced former stable block, in a cluster of houses ideally located overlooking the village church in Ganarew, and the countryside beyond.

Beautifully furnished throughout to provide contemporary, spacious, high-quality accommodation, Ganarew Cottage is perfect for friends and family who wish to spend time in this stunning part of the country.

The four sumptuous bedrooms all offer views of the countryside, the master of which has the added benefit of en-suite facilities, plus a small nursery room next door.

The owner's attention to detail is evident throughout the cottage, with a very well-equipped kitchen and a large sitting room with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams, original stone-flagged floors, luxurious sofas and a warming woodburning stove.

Outside is a lovely enclosed cottage garden, complete with seating and a barbecue, ideal for alfresco dining in the summer, or simply relaxing with a refreshing drink.

About the location

WHITCHURCH, HEREFORDSHIRE

Symonds Yat 0.5 miles; Monmouth 4 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles.

The village of Whitchurch lies between the small market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean. Boasting lovely walks in every direction, Whitchurch has a thriving village shop and coffee shop selling locally sourced products, a pub and a restaurant. Just a short distance away is Symonds Yat, a pretty Herefordshire village, which straddles the River Wye, home to the magnificent natural limestone rock popular with wildlife enthusiasts and climbers, as well as a Butterfly Farm and Maze. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts many outdoor activities, including horseback riding, abseiling, caving, numerous cycle routes and a high wire rope course. Other activities on offer for the less energetic include fishing, golf and kayaking to name just a few. Close by is the pretty village of Goodrich with its 12th century Marcher Castle, village shop and two pubs both serving good food. The historic town of Monmouth is well worth a visit with its mixture of Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, while the riverside town of Ross-on-Wye has many timbered Tudor buildings, riverside walks and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Day trips can be enjoyed to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park, the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Hereford and Hay-on-Wye.
