  • “What a little gem this cottage is!”

    I would like to call it a diamond, however the lack of notice regarding the road leading to the cottage would stop me. This road is challenging to say the least!, very narrow with drivers driving way too fast. Also there is no write up telling potential renters that the noise goes on throughout the night.So if you open the windows during the night there is no respite.!!

About the location


Monmouth 5 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles; Gloucester 23 miles.

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.
