Ganarew House offers luxury accommodation for all our residents. We have a mixture of single and double bedrooms, the majority are ensuite and all have views over the garden or the open hills of the Wye Valley, Monmouth and beyond. Our bright, airy living spaces present a cheery welcome and a passenger lift and stair lifts ensure wheelchair access throughout the home. We have the latest technology enabling our residents and visitors to be up to date and connected during their stay here. WiFi, broadband and iPads are available for everyone to enjoy.

We care about high standards

In May 2019, Ganarew was rated ‘Good’ overall in an inspection by England’s health and adult social care regulatory body, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
