A beauty spot attracting visitors from near and far, Symonds Yat is a delightful haven at a horseshoe-shaped bend in the meandering river Wye. With holiday cottages located on either side, the village is split in two by the river, and linked only by a hand-pulled ferry. Many come to enjoy the area’s unspoilt natural beauty, to climb the five hundred feet of Yat rock, catch a glimpse of the nesting peregrine falcons and other wildlife or enjoy the challenge of the river’s rapids. The Wye Valley Walk winds through the woods here, and are a delight in all seasons – carpeted with blue bells and filled with a profusion of wild garlic in spring, or a riot of colour from the turning leaves in the autumn months.
