Area Overview

Nestled at the very edge of the ancient Forest of Dean, the picturesque village of Symonds Yat straddles the rural English counties of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. The area is primarily renowned for its natural beauty, with rolling valleys, hidden cave networks and sites of great archaeological importance just a few miles’ drive from the village. Due to this, Symonds Yat and the surrounding area lends itself well to outdoor pursuits and enjoys a moderate climate with average highs of 21C in July and August. In addition to being on the doorstep of one of England’s oldest woodlands, the village is just a stone’s throw from Seven Sisters Rocks, Symonds Yat rapids and the Welsh border.

Things To Do in Symonds Yat

  • The Forest of Dean: This area of ancient woodland covers an expanse of 110 sq km and in addition to its stunning natural vistas boasts the remains of a Roman settlement, the medieval castle of St Briavels and The Speech House, a former royal Tudor hunting lodge.
  • Symonds Yat Rock: A vantage point over the River Wye popular with bird watchers due to the resident nesting peregrine falcons.
  • King Arthur’s Cave: An archaeological site where remains of ancient hyenas and sabre-toothed cats have been discovered.
  • Symonds Yat Rapids: Man-made rapids popular with canoeists, kayakers and white-water rafters.
