    “We had an excellent week blessed ...”

    We had an excellent week blessed with lovely sunshine which always helps. It accommodated 6 adults very well - lovely house, comfy beds, settees, nice bedding, good equipment (dishwasher etc), very good hot water and heating, useful "games room" for storage and a wonderful setting for exploring the area plus the benefit of peace and quiet in an interesting and picturesque hamlet.

    We had an excellent week blessed with lovely sunshine which always helps. It accommodated 6 adults very well - lovely house, comfy beds, settees, nice bedding, good equipment (dishwasher etc), very good hot water and heating, useful "games room" for storage and a wonderful setting for exploring the area plus the benefit of peace and quiet in an interesting and picturesque hamlet. BUT there are a few things you should know which detracted a little from the overall view and which, for a house described as "top notch", are not acceptable. There are missing light bulbs in the overhead dining room light, the under cupboard kitchen fitting, a bedside lamp in the 1st bedroom on the left. The shower mat in the main bathroom is black and mouldy underneath. The lampshade on the windowsill lamp in the lounge is cracked and very tatty. We would have liked some small glasses for fruit juice, evening drinks etc. And a few more small dishes, plates would have been useful (we self catered 6 out of 7 nights unlike some people who eat out a lot). And the garden really needs a bit of tidying up. Unusually as well there are no local maps apart from a few printed walks. We forgot to write in the visitors' book quite by mistake but would not particularly have wanted to mention the above in that, but I think the owner should be aware.

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.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, many lovely walks and cycle routes can be enjoyed from the doorstep around the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean.

Enjoy the magnificent views from Symonds Yat Rock, or try the many outdoor activities on offer, including kayaking, a high wire rope course, horse riding and fishing, to name but a few.

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.
