Granton Coach House Romantic Cottage description

Holiday home
This beautiful coach house has been tastefully restored and offers fabulous accommodation on the first floor of the house. It is decorated very simply and elegantly which show off the many original features to perfection throughout the property. The quality and attention to detail is obvious. The open plan living area has a high beamed ceiling, a woodburning stove and original wooden floors, and there is a fabulous veranda to sit out and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the woodland garden. The spacious bedroom has beams and other delightfully quirky features and the benefit of a luxurious en-suite shower room whilst the kitchen is bright, well equipped and has a contemporary feel. This property offers a charming holiday idyll, perfect for seeing this stunning area.

The charming village of Goodrich stands on the River Wye, in the village is Goodrich Castle a fine example of a 12th Century Marcher Castle. The term 'marcher' is derived from the Anglo-Saxon 'mearc,' meaning boundary. The village amenities include a store and a couple of pubs serving good food. The nearby town of Ross-on-Wye is a delight to visit, with its 17th Century Market Hall, riverside walks, and a variety of shops, and eateries. Cruises are available along the river, but for something a little different why not try a hot air balloon trip and see the world from a different perspective? Symonds Yat is only one and a half miles away, and the book town of Hay-on-Wye is always worth a visit.

Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye.

Granton Coach House was a quiet, restful haven in a particularly beautiful part of the country.
Mr Goddard
December 2015
We had a lovely week and the cottage was so nice, warm and beautifully furnished. If we do come back to the UK we would go again and certainly recommend it to friends.
Mr Wilson
June 2015
Absolutely thrilled with this lovely Coach House, it had everything needed to make our stay perfect. Loved coming 'home' after a busy day sightseeing, it was so comfortable. We hardly ate out during our stay, as it was so easy to cook and enjoy our meals in the Coach House. Really enjoyed the view over the owner's garden, very pretty, and it was convenient for Ross, Hereford, Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds. Brilliant!
Mrs Polhill

Comfortable, warm and peaceful. Highly recommend this place, we had a wonderfully relaxing break.
Mr Burridge
May 2015
The cottage is a little gem, a cosy lounge, kitchen/dining area. Everything was so clean and there is everything you could need. The village is pretty and there are pubs within walking distance. Couldn't fault it, we really relaxed and will definitely be back, thank you.
Mr Ernest
February 2015
Very peaceful quiet and warm with excellent facilities. The weather was very cold but the central heating was very good and we could control the thermostat and timings. An excellent location to use as a base to visit many places of interest.

Mr White-aldworth

The accommodation was very comfortable in delightful surroundings. It was a delight to wake to the sounds of the birds in the trees around the balcony. We hope to return here another year.

Mr Jones

Granton Coach House provides clean, well equipped and comfortable accommodation in a good setting. The owners are attentive without being too intrusive. This is an ideal holiday location.
Mr Deeks
March 2014
First off, the most important thing for me is an excellent comfortable bed and a good nights sleep, and this one was spot on, excellent bed and very peaceful. Kitchen was top-notch and we enjoyed the lounge with wood-burner and bathroom was good too. Lovely veranda out front, great location. Lots of good walks and pubs nearby.
Ms Baynton
April 2014
Fantastic cottage, both in terms of location and quality of the accommodation. This is an ideal location for exploring the Wye Valley and Black Mountains, with many walks accessible from the cottage. Good pubs also within walking distance, and Goodrich Castle which is also very worthwhile visiting. The cottage is well furnished, and spacious for a couple staying here. It is both comfortable and well-equipped. We are planning to return.
Mr Keen
October 2013
Warm welcome and very peaceful. Owners friendly without interference.
Mrs Payne

Excellent accommodation for two people. Very warm welcome by the owners, and situated in an ideal area for walking which was helped by the up-to-date information available in the cottage.
Ms Burslem

Beautiful property,lovely setting, gracious hosts. Great location, masses to see and do, beautiful part of the English countryside. Excellent food options, great pubs. Well appointed and very comfortable 5*.
June 2013
Our holiday was brilliant and every bit as good as we hoped it would be.
Mr Coote
July 2013
The cottage was well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Its location was perfect as a touring base for the Wye valley and into South Wales. Hereford, Tewkesbury, and Abergavenny are all within easy reach and are worth a visit, but there is stil plenty to see locally, Symonds Yat, Forest of Dean to name but two. The cottage had a nice shady garden and we enjoyed a couple of BBQs. A really good holiday.
Mr Frankton
February 2013
A delightful cottage - ranks as one of the best we have stayed in. A perfect location for exploring the Wye valley, and so much valuable information about walks and the surrounding area in the cottage. A warm welcome from the owners. Not surprising to see that this cottage is always well booked up. We received a warm welcome at the Cross Keys Inn and the food was good.
Mr Haile
October 2013
The Coach House was very thoughtfully and comfortably furnished.
Miss Smith
May 2013
Tranquil setting. Information available in the accommodation, walking guides, comments, recommendations for outings, history of building etc. Location was idyllic, local pub, variety of activities in local area; forest of Dean, walks, river, castle, abbey etc. Very good access to surrounding areas.

There was walking available from the doorstep.

Ms Jennings

The cottage was very well equipped and the fire kept it very hot. After coming back from our walks (in the rain), it was lovely to come back to. The people in the area were so friendly and made us feel very welcome wherever we went.
Mrs George

Mr Scott

The Coach House is a beautiful property in a beautiful part of the country. A credit to the owners. A week away from the stress and pressure of work was achieved due to the delightful Granton Coach House, and the help from the owners.
Mr Lea

Nicely situated for local amenities and access to places of interest.
Mr Baird
August 2012
We loved the convenient location of the cottage for the Wye valley. It was within walking distance of a lot of features and driving distance of everything else. This is our fourth time in Herefordshire and would definitely return to Granton Coach House for our next visit. The cottage was well furnished, appointed and decorated with lovely touches from the owners.
Mrs Spenceley
July 2011
We liked absolutely everything, the setting the accommodation, walks from the door, places of interest to visit were all first class.
Mrs Pattinson
May 2011
The property was excellent. The area was beautiful, we did some great walks and visited near by towns. Thought it was all good - just did not like having to go home!
Mr Crooke

Perfect stay in 5-star accommodation. Cottage tastefully furnished, leaves nothing to be desired. Excellent location for exploring the area. Very friendly and welcoming owners.
Miss Bowe
August 2010
The Coach House is located in a very quiet area but very handy for many attractions - Ross on Wye and Monmouth are well worth a visit and the views from Symonds Yat Rock were particularly breath-taking.
Mrs Dicker
September 2010
It was so lovely and quiet that you could hear a pin drop at night and the black out blinds throughout the property was a great idea. The owners were so welcoming and we knew we could pop round to the house if we needed to ask any questions. This cottage suited us perfectly.
Mrs Howe
November 2010
We have stayed in several Sykes cottages and this was definitely the best to date. A fabulous conversion so well thought through it gave us everything we needed - a delight to come 'home' to at the end of a day out. We shall definitely return and can't thank the owners enough for their hospitality and thoughtfulness.
Mr Allum
February 2011
The Cottage was amazing and everyone was so friendly. Very well positioned and I have already recommended it to all I know!
Ms Peerless
April 2011
The Coach House was beautifully renovated and incredibly well equipped. The super king bed was especially luxurious and we had the best sleep ever! A lovely, relaxing place to stay with lots of things to do in the local area.
Mr Taylor
March 2010
Cottage very warm and cosy. Goodrich Castle nearby is well worth a visit.
Mr McLaren-Clark
May 2010
The Coach House is superb! Incredible modern finishing which was so refreshing for a holiday cottage. Owners were lovely and extremely helpful and welcoming. Overall, a fantastic week!! We cannot recommend it more!
March 2016
Lovely small cottage. Well equipped with woodburning stove and very large comfortable bed. Great location in pretty village with two pubs within walking distance and a great base for exploring the Wye valley. Owners very throughtful with lots of recommendations about what to do and where to eat.

April 2016
This is a real home from home. We stay in a lot of holiday homes and this is one of the nicest we have ever been in. It was really clean and welcoming, with lots of light coming in. The bed was really comfortable and had nice quality bed linen. It was in a very quiet location with the owners nearby if there were any problems. It was very warm with the facility to override the heating if necessary. There is also a wood burner, but we never needed it. Also there was a plentiful supply of dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls etc., which often isn't the case! We were able to visit Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Gloucester and Hereford by bus. The local pub, the Hostelrie, was a short walk away which had excellent food. There was lots of walking right from the door, with walking books provided in the house. Symonds Yat Rock is a must to see the nesting peregrine falcons and the most fantastic views. All in all would highly recommend and would like to visit again.
Mr Speck
November 2009
An excellent property, along with delightful and helpful owners. The drive to Hay-On-Wye is breathtaking!!
Ms Barwell
December 2009
A relaxing week spent exploring the local area over Christmas (in the snow!). We would highly recommend Granton Coach House to anyone seeking a high standard of self catering accommodation situated in the country but close enough to the sights, villages, walking trails, cosy pubs and friendly locals! The owners are great hosts and we will definitely return to stay.
Mrs Brooks
January 2010
Very relaxing. Quiet and really well located with bags of local attractions. Very warm during one of the coldest winters! Good recommendations for local pubs and restaurants.
Mr Symcox

The location, was so peaceful and relaxing. Best self catering holiday ever!
Miss Knowles

June 2015
Lovely accommodation, lovely owners next door. All very clean and comfortable, especially that bed. Visitor reviews in the Visitors Book are all very positive. Plenty of tips for local hostelries and restaurants. Within easy reach of many attractions and beautiful countryside. Very satisfied.
May 2015
We stayed at Granton Cochhouse for a week at the beginning of May. We regularly have self-catering breaks in the UK, some good, some not so good, but this one is exactly what it says on the tin. It has a welcoming verandah, handy for off-loading your muddy boots after a beautiful walk in the surrounding breath taking countryside. It's a lovely bright and comfortable accommodation with everything you might need for a week away. With a well equipped kitchen with everything you might need, pretty little bathroom with wonderfully powerful shower and a sumptuously clean and comfortable bed. It's set in a lovely village which is right on top of a footpath, the scenery is breath taking, with the views of surrounding Coppett Hill and the pretty old church mesmerising from the inside of the cottage. There is also a good pub within a short walk. Relaxation isn't hard to come by here and we will be back - Bliss, Kay & Mike Burridge.

Most pleasant cottage we have stayed in, owners had thought of everything we could possibly need. Kitchen brilliant, bedroom very comfortable with lovely en-suite. Very pretty coach house close to owner's house in beautiful grounds, quiet and very relaxing, a perfect place to chill. Perfect place to visit Symonds Yat, Herefordshire, South Wales and Cotswolds. So nice to come back to after a long day visiting all our favourite places.
March 2015
The coach house is in a beautiful setting, very peaceful and relaxing. It is well equipped and spotlessly clean. The bed is extremely comfortable with lovely linen. The en suite bathroom has a heated towel rail which is on all the time making it lovely and warm and a excellent power shower with instant hot water. The heating is user friendly and the property is always comfortable. The owners are not intrusive at all but should you need them they are on hand. The area is outstanding with many walks and easy access to Cardiff if you need some retail therapy . We would recommend this property to couples who would like a nice relaxing break away and would definitely return ourselves.

This was our second trip to this cottage, and like our trip in March we were extremely jammy with the weather so once again had a fantastic time enjoying the walks and scenery. The location of this cottage is excellent for us as there are two very good pubs in the village, the Cross Keys which was our favorite and we had an excellent meal there and also the Hostelrie which is very nice too which you can both walk to, and a little further out is the Inn on the Wye and Mill Race in Walford which are both well worth a visit. The other reason we loved the location is that there are plenty of walks right on your doorstep and we really enjoyed the views from Coppet Hill (which you can see from the cottage) and if you are up for a bit of a walk,Symonds Yat is approx 80 minute walk from the cottage. As for the cottage it is beautiful, a very peaceful location in the grounds of the owners house, it has a very well equipped Kitchen and we loved the big comfortable bed. The only issue we had was that the weather was so good we did not get to use the log burner but we certainly enjoyed that on our visit in March. The owners Liz and John are both lovely and helpful and a pleasure to deal with so we thoroughly recommend this both for the quality of the accommodation and the excellent and very pretty locale that it resides in. Just one point, if WiFi is important to you it is worth checking with the owner whether the fibre optic upgrade this is imminently due has sorted out the issue that you cannot really get Wifi inside the cottage as we had to use this in the owners garden.
August 2014
Just back from our visit to Goodrich and our stay at the Granton Coach House. A really tastefully refurbished property, retaining lots of character. I was particularly struck by the imaginative use of lighting. There is plenty of space and the kitchen very well equipped. (There is also a utility room). Spotlessly clean and very comfortable bed and sofa. We had fresh eggs left for us on arrival and other home grown produce during our stay which was much appreciated and just one of the little touches that makes this place so special. It's in a great location - easy driving for all Wye Valley sites and beyond, we didn't have to spend hours in the car getting from A to B which was nice. Two good pubs within walking distance but you will need a torch to see your way home. There is one at the property but not very bright so if you don't have a torch app on your phone I'd recommend just taking a torch along with you. Ye Hostelrie was our favourite pub - a short cut through the local church graveyard in daylight, up to you if you want to do that at night! The other pub, the Cross Keys seems to be more of a restaurant but good food and very popular. I'll review them separately if you want to check them out. Supermarkets in Ross on Wye and Monmouth depending on which way you are travelling from, for a shop before you arrive. We didn't need to use the local shop (opposite Ye Hostelrie) so can't comment on that. I would say that the only reason that I haven't given a full marks is because the DVD player packed up (we were planning a bit of a boxset binge for a couple of evenings!) However I understand that's been replaced so all should be fine now in that respect. All in all a super little find and will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Thanks to John and Liz for providing such a great place to stay.

Granton Coach House was very well run and exceptionally clean. The area is quite expensive both drinking and eating out and as Lancastrians, we don't like skin on fried fish or bones.
June 2014
Lovely setting, very peaceful, loved listening to the birds in morning. Great pub within walking distance, lots of places nearby to visit.
August 2011
we had a wonderful busy but relaxing week, accommodation first class, walks from the door, easy to difficult, the only problem was deciding which bits to leave out. the whole area is beautiful, it was a delightful way to celebrate becoming a pensioner!

I stayed here for a week in late November. The property was excellent and the owners were friendly and on hand to help us settle in. Goodrich is a lovely village and is ideally placed to visit some of the best parts of England and Wales, plus there is good walk within 2 minutes of the House. Would recommend the House whether you want an activity break or just to chill and relax.
March 2012
We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners and were told immediately to treat the cottage as our home. The cottage was very clean, had a fantastic bed and wonderful kitchen facilities. The open fire was great on the cold nights and made the whole place cosy and warm.
April 2013
A really lovely cottage. Very well equipped and lots of useful information about the local area and in particular walking. So many cottages have loads of information that is out of date. Not this one. We actually did a number of the walks from the books provided. The cottage was lovely and warm and everything was presented thoughtfully. Definitely one of the best we have been to. We would definitely go there again. In fact tried to book for May but someone has beaten us to it.Also a warm welcome at the Cross Keys where the food was good and reasonably priced.
September 2010
Lovely place, very well equipped. Quiet and relaxing. Wifi was not good, we had to go outside the owners' house usually. We didn't meet the lady of the house , only the man a few times but that was no problem !
