Overview

About the property

Cottage in Ganarew, Nr. Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Wales - Peaceful Location, Extensive Walking & Cycling. Dog And Children Friendly

Ganarew is situated in a spectacular part of the Wye Valley around the area of the Wye Gorge and falls within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Whitchurch and Ganarew Parish is blessed with the largest number and greatest length of footpaths of any parish in the whole of the United Kingdom. This Character cottage has recently been renovated to a very high standard. It sleeps 8 comfortably in 4 spacious double/twin bedrooms. By using zip and link beds, we are able to offer a flexible set up with either twin rooms with good sized singles, or once linked together we can offer superking doubles instead. The Master bedroom enjoys fantastic views and includes an ensuite bathroom with a large bath and benefits from an adjoining nursery. Family bathroom is all newly installed as of 2015. It boasts a good sized bath and a high quality overhead shower unit. Main living room features wood burner and stone floor. The kitchen is very well equipped, but most importantly is the garage adjoining the kitchen. This provides essential wet-dog space, laundry facilities, indoor games room & bike and kayak storage.

About Katie

I live in Herefordshire with my husband, 2 dogs and various other animals in our small holding.

Katie purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Katie chose Forest of Dean district

The Cottage was bought in 2014 at auction in a poor state. It desperately needed some love and attention. We spent 9 months working with structural engineers, planning consultants and builders to restore the cottage to what you find today. It truly was a labour of love.

It became clear very early on that this would be a great holiday let. The village is very safe for children to play in and is connected to a vast array of footpaths. Also, for the size of the cottage it is incredibly spacious.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is just two miles from Monmouth and 10 minutes walk away from the famous Wye Valley, thus ideally located for walking.

My favourite part of this property and the location is the church opposite and the walk up the hill behind, where from the top you can look into both Wales and England.

Excellent property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped cottage in a stunning location with beautful views. Plenty of room with all single beds on request. Wash basins in all rooms except en-suite which is a real boon cutting down on time spent waiting for the bathroom when teeth cleaning etc. We were a party of 8 ladies of a certain age and would thoroughly recommend this property for larger parties as it has plenty of room to accomodate all. Very well equipped property and the games room is a fun facility. Walks can be started directly from the door or just a short car ride away. We had a good meal at the nearby 'Ye Old Ferrie Inn'. We would definitely consider a return to this property as the standard is very good and there is such a lot to do and see in the surrounding area.

Cottage was cosy but spacious, ideal spot for accessing all that symmonds yat has to offer

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our experience in Ganarew cottage, when we arrived there were the bare essentials to get you settled in eg bread, milk, tea, coffee, sugar and jam plus a lovely home made sponge. From the outside the cottage looked small and quaint but was very deceiving when you stepped indoors, it was surprisingly large with ample room for everyone, we could have all fitted in the master bedroom. The cottage was beautiful and clean, the linen was superb, beds really comfortable, the games room was set more for children but the adults enjoyed joining in. There are plenty of walks, there is a butterfly farm nearby and a very short drive away is facilities for kayaking, walking, climbing, all outdoor pursuits. Also ideal for dogs.

We enjoyed si much we are thinking of returning to Ganarew cottage next year

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! We booked here to celebrate my birthday, 8 of us in total, and I think we all immediately fell in love with this cottage.

Spacious, comfortable and just a delight, I wish I lived here.

Beautiful places to visit in the area and fab places to eat and drink, especially The Hostelrie in Goodrich.

We will definitely be back!

Excellent, spacious, comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my father. Very well appointed and situated (for Wye Valley and Forest of Dean especially). Monmouth is very near and is an interesting, historical town with much feeling of community. Would like to go back again. Would be an excellent property for young families. Vey cosy and welcoming.
