“Perfect in everyway”
Reviewed 7 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

My partner and I escaped our city life with our dogstocking in this beautiful little cottage and we loved every second! Mandy and David were lovely and very welcoming, we felt at home right away. We fell in love with the character of the cottage and the perfect scenery that came with it. Simply perfect for anyone who fancies some time out, highly recommend!

“Romantic return”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Mandy was exceptionally helpful, and the Grannary as beautiful and romantic as we remembered from our first visit. We will remember this visit for a long time and feel sure to return. Highly recommended as a romantic getaway, with great walks and bike rides straight out the front door.

“WOW!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This little cottage is just beautiful, its views are amazing, and having the animals to look at is just lovely. We enjoyed some fantastic meals in the area, and it was great to take the dog out to them as well, as most of them are dog friendly. The feeling of utter peace was felt as soon as we walked through the doors to the Granary, it was very quirky and snuggly. The perfect get away, and so much to do in the local area, Symonds Yat would be up high on my recommendations of places to visit it was just lovely. Thank you David and Mandy for sharing this little treasure.

“Lovely peaceful stay but close to all amenities”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed for a couple of nights midweek and wish we could have stayed longer!
The dirt track takes some getting used to but once your at the top it's really close to all the attractions we wanted to visit. Breakfast on the balcony was lovely with the amazing views- will deffo return and recommend to all.
