The Heart of England/Peak District
Symonds Yat and Forest of Dean are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Forest of Dean is one of the most ancient surviving forests in England, a former royal hunting ground with its timber also being used to build the Mary Rose. During the nineteenth and in the early part of the twentieth century, the forest was a major tourist attraction but today, former railway lines have been repurposed as cycle and walking paths. The link from Lydney to Parkend still survives as the Dean Forest Railway and gives visitors great views combined with the nostalgia of steam.
Ross on Wye
Symonds Yat is a hamlet steeped in history, named after Robert Symonds, a County Sheriff in the 17th century. The name ‘Yat’ means Gate, and hence the name of the cottage.
Straddling the River Wye in England, it is a popular destination for fishing, walking, canoeing, cycling, and climbling. Symonds Yat is also ideal for a quiet and relaxing break or a place to bring a young family.
Famed for its natural river scenery and wooded expanses, Symonds Yat Rock is a limestone outcrop rising some 500 feet from the banks of the river.
Archaeological finds include Mammoth and Sabre Tooth Tiger bones. At nearby King Arthur’s cave, discoveries confirm Man’s presence some 20,000 years ago. More recently, the New Weir Iron Works, used between 1590s and 1800s, was excavated.
In summary, the area has something for everybody:
Cycling, walking and running
Children and adults can chose from the new level Peregrine 10km path or 200km of trails in nearby Forest of Dean.
Canoeing, Kayaking and white water
Plenty of launch points and local hire facilities. Grade 2 white water is only a couple of minutes paddle away.
Renowned course fishing
30 species including brown trout. Hire local tackle and or fish at the local Ye Olde Ferrie Inne.
Climbing and abseiling
For all ages in the famous and picturesque limestone crag within the gorge.

"Idyllic rural getaway with unrivalled views..."
I made a last minute booking for an unplanned 3 night break when I was in desperate need of relaxation and beautiful scenery. The owners were extremely accommodating and managed to squeeze me in-betwe… More
Thank you Neil for your lovely and very detailed review. We too, enjoy the scenery so much at Le Yat, such a beautiful part of the world. We are always happy to take last minute bookings and will always do our best to accommodate our clients old and new!
And you are right, the best part is that it is so close to major cities and yet feels like a world away.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Wye Gate Cottage in the near future. Good luck with your next exhibition at the gallery.
With very best wishes, Laura and Raf

"Excellent location for a peaceful break, with good pubs nearby"
Wye Gate was very comfortable for the two of us, with everything we needed for a self-catering break (although we couldn't find a potato masher!). However, with two lovely pubs nearby, it's … More
Thank you for your kind review...if the only thing missing was a potato masher, we are not doing too badly! Suffice to say, the said 'masher' is now installed!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Wye Gate Cottage.

"Perfect for a relaxing break"
We were really lucky with the weather, but I didn't realise quite how beautiful and tranquil the Wye Valley was before we stayed here. Wye Gate Cottage is in a great location, just a few minutes … More
Thank you for your lovely and very entertaining review....I believe you are our first guest to have 'driven' the hand pulled ferry!! I am glad that you enjoyed the games etc and the tranquility of the setting, most certainly different to the city. I look forward to welcoming you again.
With very best wishes,

"Relaxing, enjoyable holiday beautiful scenery on your doorstep"
We had a wonderful week in Wye Gate cottage, It is situated in a beautiful spot with amazing views. It perfectly catered for our families needs with a large fridge freezer, as with three boys it is too expensive to eat out very often. There are beautiful walks right on your doorstep, it is also within easy reach of the beautiful cities of Hereford and Gloucester so there is plenty to keep everyone amused. Laura was really helpful and friendly and the lovely touches around the cottage made us feel at home. We would highly recommend this cottage.
Thank you very much for a lovely review and great to hear that your three boys enjoyed the holiday too! We look forward to welcoming you back to Wye Gate Cottage! With best wishes, Laura.

"Lovely week in a beautiful part of the country."
We have just returned from a cracking holiday at Wye Gate Cottage. The cottage is in a perfect location for both family holidays and I would imagine couples looking for a picturesque place with lots going on. We hardly needed our car during our stay.
The cottage itself is clean with good facilities and Laura and Raf are very helpful and kind hosts. The twin room was ideal for our two boys and the master bedroom big enough for our needs with a comfortable bed for us parents. Lovely views from the master bedroom too.
The kitchen was well kitted out with everything we needed. and a large enough fridge for our weeks worth of shopping.
I would thoroughly recommend the place to anybody who loves the countryside and enjoys nice walks, nice pubs, great beer, watching the world go by on the river, birds, canoeing, fishing, cycling and general exploring.
So glad that you love Wye Gate Cottage and Symonds Yat as much as we do! Thank you for your lovely thoughts and we look forward to welcoming you back to Wye Gate Cottage in the future. Best wishes, Laura.
