Overview

About the property

2 Double Bedrooms, Wood Burner, Pet Friendly - Stunning River Views

7 Wye Rapids Cottage is in a beautiful location along a quiet lane overlooking the River Wye and enjoys spectacular views of the renowned wooded valley that is Symonds Yat.

This property is also our little home from home and we want you to feel as comfortable as we do. Aside from the stunning elevated position the property has a lovely wood burning stove with a generous stock of wood, lovely comfortable beds and a whole range of home comforts. We don't want it to feel like just another holiday let.

As it's on the end of the row the good sized rear courtyard can be accessed easily without going through the cottage - perfect if you have bikes, canoes or just a muddy dog!!

The property enjoys a truly stunning elevated position with fantastic views of the river, surrounded by beautiful tracks for walking (with or without dogs!) or cycling. It's a nature lovers / bird-watcher's paradise, not to mention those that enjoy river activities such as canoeing, kayaking etc.

In addition, there are some great local pubs in total 5 within a lovely 30 minute walk (the nearest just 10 minutes walk). They are all very friendly and welcoming with a great selection of food and drink...and they love dogs!

You can cross the river via a hand-operated ferry, run by the staff of the Saracen's Head pub opposite the property - located 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

About Kerry & Adrian Summerton

Kerry & Adrian love visiting Symonds Yat with their dog Padstow!

Kerry & Adrian Summerton purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Kerry & Adrian Summerton chose Herefordshire

We have been visitors to the Wye Valley for many years now, and when the opportunity arose in December 2015 to acquire 7 Wye Rapids in this premier location we just had to make it happen.

What makes this cottage unique

Wood burning stove, wood store in the back courtyard, Wi-Fi and rear access + many little home comforts (for you and your dog!).

Ideally located holiday cottage, perfect for a week away.

  • 4 of 5

Our second stay at no7 this year probably says it all!

A great location near to the edge of the forest with great views across the Wye.

A neat and tidy cottage with added advantage of a side gate to the small but enclosed back garden - perfect if you have dogs.

We are looking forward to coming back again.

Lovely cottage, Perfect break!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, very homely and had everything you could need, it was clean and the beds were so comfy, our boys slept like logs! Location is fab for getting out and about and the scenery and views are just wonderful. Will definitely recommend to others (already have recommended to my mother in law) and we would love to come back and stay again soon, thank you.
