Family friendly accommodation with generous internal layout
My wife booked this for my "extended" 60th birthday. We stayed for 10 days entertaining close family (including 2 young grandchildren, 5 and 8) for the first weekend. We then had two sets of friends to stay at other times plus spent a couple of days on our own playing golf close by at Monmouth GC (very hilly) and Forest Hills GC (many trees!). The cottage is really big inside with 4 large bedrooms, a family bathroom, one ensuite bathroom and a cloakroom downstairs. The living area is spacious and very homely including a wood burning stove. The kitchen is large (we had a private caterer in for one evening and he was complimentary about the facilities given that it is a rental premises). A large garage houses plenty of entertainment for young (and not so young) children. Our grandsons enjoyed the games. The one small downside is that the property is next to a care home. The staff take their breaks outside (coffee and cigarettes) and were quite noisy very early in the morning some days.

Perfect, idyllic retreat.
Loved staying here, booked by friends. Miles away from the hubbub of normal busy life, yet only a couple of minutes from the A40, so easy to get to. Really well equipped, great kitchen, large lounge and dining area, comfy seats...yes soooo comfy..... and large clean bathrooms. Towels etc supplied, and all the mod cons. It's a bit like the Tardis, looks quaint and small from the outside, but inside it's enormous! Dog friendly too. Wonderful place to chill for a few days, with walks etc right on our doorstep. Perfect.

Beautiful cottage for spending time with good friends
We stayed at Ganarew Cottage at the end of February for my friend's hen weekend. We wanted a comfortable, welcoming place where we could relax between activities! Ganarew cottage was ideal. Whilst it looks quite small from the outside, it is very spacious inside and the light, clean decor gives it a lovely luxurious feel. There were 8 of us all together and there was plenty of room for everyone to get involved in the kitchen and we enjoyed some lovely meals around the dining table. The wood burning stove was an added bonus! The property is very well maintained and the owner was exceptionally helpful. We recommend 'The Moody Cow' for dinner, 'Monnow Events' for outdoors activities and Eastnor Pottery for a more creative experience!

Perfect setting in a pretty hamlet. Decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Very comfortable beds. Convenient to Monmouth and Forest of Dean. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will be booking the cottage again next year.

The house was fantastic; so spacious and comfortable. There were 8 of us staying and we did not feel overcrowded at all. We didn't want to go home and will definitely stay there again.
