    “The place is very nice and comfy and a stone's throw from the walking paths.”

    It was clean and we were left some biscuits and a pint of milk, which was lovely.There is everything you need including dishwasher tablets, laundry tabs, washing up liquid, hand sanitiser and anti-bac wipes. The stairs are quite creaky so walk on the edges if you are trying not to wake anyone up ! Unfortunately the front door did not lock from the inside which we reported to Sykes Cottages but hadn't been fixed by the time we left (to be honest we didn't report it until our second day as we ...

    It was clean and we were left some biscuits and a pint of milk, which was lovely.There is everything you need including dishwasher tablets, laundry tabs, washing up liquid, hand sanitiser and anti-bac wipes. The stairs are quite creaky so walk on the edges if you are trying not to wake anyone up ! Unfortunately the front door did not lock from the inside which we reported to Sykes Cottages but hadn't been fixed by the time we left (to be honest we didn't report it until our second day as we couldn't get hold of them !! Their telephone number is 01244 352059 which I searched for as it doesn't appear anywhere on their website). A couple of things you need to know, which are nothing to do with the owner of the cottage, are the ferry run by the Saracens Head is NOT RUNNING (as at 07.08.20) due to the floods they had in Feb which damaged it. This means to walk to the other side of the river is a brisk 45-50 minute walk. Also the road, which other people have mentioned, is extremely narrow (we thought it was a footpath !) and you need to be quite a confident driver to get down it. There are a couple of places where you need to turn your wing mirrors in and some of the passing places are actually where cars park so you cannot pull in there. It is a two way road and luckily we didn't meet anyone coming the other way, but something to bear in mind. The above is not moaning about the place, I just thought it would be useful for people to know about the ferry and narrow road. We would happily stay here again

The property

A charming mid-terrace cottage in the heart of the village of Symonds Yat, overlooking the River Wye and Symonds Yat Rock in the Wye Valley.

The delightful, light and airy cottage offers stunning views from the front of the property and is ideal for a get together with family and friends in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The quality of the cottage is evident as you enter with sumptuous seating in the sitting room and a coal-effect electric fire, which leads through to a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, ideal for relaxing over a coffee and planning the day’s activities.

Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Doors from the kitchen lead to the rear private courtyard garden which comes complete with furniture and BBQ, perfect for enjoying the delights of alfresco dining on a summer's evening.

The shared, landscaped gardens offer different seating areas which are ideal for enjoying the quiet tranquillity of the area with a book or a picnic.

Why not take a stroll to the river ferry, cross the River Wye and enjoy a refreshing drink in the pub on the opposite bank?

Many fabulous walks and cycle trails can be enjoyed from the doorstep of the cottage, or try your hand at one of the many outdoor activities on offer in the Forest of Dean and on the River Wye.

Visit the riverside towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, both offering unique shops, tea rooms and traditional pubs in idyllic settings.

A wonderful holiday cottage to be enjoyed at any time of year.

The pretty village of Symonds Yat straddles the beautiful River Wye with its natural scenery and magnificent limestone 'rock', popular with climbers and is internationally renowned for its viewpoint. Symonds Yat West is situated overlooking the beautiful Wye Valley, and is close to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Visit the historic town of Monmouth with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offering excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Just a little further afield discover the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. A great area to unwind with family and friends.
