The Forest of Dean is nearby as are two market towns of Monmouth and Ross on Wye both with good shopping facilities. Abergavenny and Hay on Wye are both within easy reach and providing the gateway to the Black Mountains. A chain of border castles from Goodrich to Grosmont are all easily accessible. The cities of Gloucester, Hereford, Cardiff and Bristol are all within one hour's driving distance.

Location description from owner

The England region

Lying close to the Welsh border, Wyewood Cottage, on the western bank of the river is in Herefordshire, whilst just across the river is Gloucestershire and the Forest of Dean. This part of Britain has a huge heritage to offer, with its historic Norman castles; black and white houses; Celtic culture and prehistoric cave dwelling sites.

The forest landscapes with abundant wildlife including deer and wild boar; also feature a railway; sculpture park and cycle trails. Puzzlewood has been the location for both Dr Who and StarWars. Local market towns offer a selection of shopping both traditional and modern. Within easy reach is the town of Hay on Wye famous for its Literary Festival, whilst Abergavenny is renowned for its Food Festival.

The mountains of Wales are within easy reach, whilst city centres such as Gloucester; Hereford; Bristol and Cardiff are all within a one hour drive.

Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat has a long history as a tourist spot, visited by Wordsworth and many of his contemporaries. The RSPB involvement with the local nesting Peregrine falcons has put it once more in the spotlight. The west bank (where Wyewood Cottage is located) is the quiet area, though there are several good pubs in the village. The hand-pulled ferry gives you easy access to the eastern bank of the river and the pubs on offer there.

The river offers quiet river cruises or more energetic canoeing expeditions, besides angling opportunities. Or, you can sit in the gardens and watch the river flow by.

Come in the spring to see the thousands of snowdrops by the river or, a little later to enjoy the wild garlic. Many of the residents feed the local bird population and in winter you can expect to see flocks of siskins and goldfinches around the garden whilst the resident pheasants add a tropical touch.

“Lovely cottage in stunning area”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

We had a brilliant 3 night stay over the bank holiday weekend. It's a cosy cottage with everything needed for a relaxing break, including a travel cot and high chair which is great if you are there with a baby. The setting is really peaceful, coming from London it was lovely to wake up to birdsong rather than traffic noise! The communal gardens are beautiful, we had our lunch down on the picnic table on one of the days. Symonds Yat and the surrounding area is really picturesque with plenty to do. We had a lovely walk along the river up to the suspension bridge and back along the far side then used the old fashioned hand pull ferry to cross the river back to the cottage! The nearby Puzzlewood attraction is also definitely worth a visit. The games room is a nice touch, though we didn't get a chance to try the bikes or canoes unfortunately. The only downside is the lack of mobile phone reception, however there is a pay phone in the cottage if needed, and there is wifi too. All in all a really nice place
