We were greeted at 10.00am by our host Mark who kindly offered us a nice cup of coffee on arrival. Then off to canoe down the River Wye for the rest of the day. Symonds Yat gets very busy at bank holidays and we were dismayed to find that many of the resturants and hotels were fully booked. No problem at Garth Cottage...Mark promptly sugested he could knock us up a dinner consisting of a smoked salmon starter followed by duck breast in a port sauce with shallotts! Where else would you be offered that at such short notice? It was absolutely delicious! Very nice room for the overnight stay (an olde worlde kind of a feel but VERY clean and well presented) followed by a superb cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. It scored 10/10 on my scale for taste and what I really liked was everything on the plate was piping hot! This was our first visit to Garth Cottage having stayed previously in the other hotels and inns nearby but this has, as the title suggests, proved to be a real gem of a find. Highly recommended to all....the family that run this place are excellent hosts.
