Symonds Yat is an unusual village in the Forest of Dean providing superb views over the Wye valley it is split in two by the River Wye, with Symonds Yat West in Herefordshire and Symonds Yat East in Gloucestershire! There is a hand-pulled ferry across the River, which is the only direct link between the 2 villages. The area is prone to get busy as it is both a popular tourist haunt and activity venue, but parking is plentiful. There are Peregrine Falcons nesting on the cliffs, barn owls, foxes, badgers and fallow deer, as well as bluebell woods there are designated paths allowing visitors access to the plentiful (and protected) wildlife. Symonds Yat Rapids play host to much canoeing and Kayaking. Nearby is the Museum of Mazes, a Butterfly Zoo, an amusement park, Goodrich Castle and the market town of Ross-on-Wye. There is much accommodation here ranging from The Royal Lodge AA3star country hotel to Sterrett's Caravan Park and everything in-between, including The Saracens Head inn also serving food but with riverside guest rooms!
