Description from owner


Riversdale Lodge is set in the heart of Symonds Yat overlooking the River Wye. Riversdale Lodge was built circa.1910. It is a six bedroom house that has in it's time been a small hotel - hence it has 6 bedrooms and six bathrooms!

Riversdale Lodge is on the banks of the River Wye and has direct access from the garden to the river and the riverside path that leads down to Biblins Bridge and beyond.

The Lodge has an outdoor swimming pool (open from 1st June to 30th September) and has great views of Symonds Yat East and the rapids. We accept weekly bookings as well as bookings for midweek (Monday to Friday) and weekends (Friday to Monday). Due to the nature of the property we do not accept all male or all female parties (or close to this) - Riversdale Lodge is for mixed groups and families. The prices for the bookings are shown on the price list.

The layout of the lodge is:

Lounge - with log burner and three sofas, a pool table, a football table, a TV that can be used for games consoles (guests would need to bring console) and also a plasma with Sky HD tv (including all sports)

Dining room - with two round tables, one seating 10 and one seating 4

Kitchen - with breakfast bar for three

Utility Room - with washer / dryer, second sink, drying area

Bedroom 1 - Double with ensuite shower, washbasin and toilet

Bedroom 2 - Two singles (& travel cot) with ensuite shower, washbasin and toilet

Bedroom 3 - Double with ensuite shower, washbasin and toilet

Bedroom 4 - Double with ensuite shower, washbasin and toilet

Bedroom 5 - Two singles and a bunk bed (for two) - with plasma tv and dvd (no tv signal - just for dvd)

Bedroom 6 - Downstairs double with no stairs from front door with ensuite shower, washbasin and toilet

There is also a family bathroom on the first floor with roll-top bath, washbasin and toilet

We allow one or two dogs - that have to stay on the ground floor (Bed 6 is downstairs)

Immediately outside the house there is a patio area with 2 wooden benches, two chairs and large table.

There is parking for up to 8 cars in the large car park which is at the end of the drive near the house.

The pool is heated and open from 1st June to the end of September. It is 3ft 6" sloping to 5" maximum. It is a private pool for the house - not shared with any other house. Guests will need to bring pool/beach towels for use by the pool. The pool uses an eco-friendly heat transfer system to heat the pool - it relies on the heat of the air to transfer to the water (therefore if there are periods of cooler weather the pool will not necessarily be that warm).

From the car park there are two shallow steps down to the house level, and then one step up into the house. Bedroom 6 is on the ground floor so one or two persons with limited mobility could use Riversdale Lodge.

We are dog friendly and allow a maximum of two dogs per stay. There is a charge of £35 per dog and we do not allow the dogs upstairs in the house or on the furniture! Bed 6 is downstairs - and it has a wooden floor so okay to sleep with you dog/s In the same room. We do ask that dog owners clean the lawns of any doo doo's before they go.

Outside of the school holidays we accept bookings for weekends or midweek breaks.

A weekend is from Friday 4pm to Monday 10am.

A midweek break is Monday 4pm to Friday 10am .

Please contact us for more details.

Very Good

“Wonderful place”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2018

Stayed here for a long weekend with family ranging from 2 years to 96 years wonderful house very comfortable and spacious will be booking again for next year

“Wonderful place for a family celebration”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2018

We loved everything about this beautiful place! The house was spacious, clean and well equipped. The games room was perfect for our 9 year old up to those in their 70s. The pool was a big hit too! We had a beautiful walk along the river and enjoyed a meal for 14 around the round tables. The trip down the very narrow lane was a challenge for some, but outweighed by everything else. We will definitely be booking again as it worked perfectly for our 4 families across 3 generations. Definitely recommended !

“Fantastic place”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2018

A wonderful weekend away with friends. Very easy to book, a lovely location right on the river. Great pool and kids facilities. Jo went beyond what was needed to help out. Chrystel and Christina made it all very easy to organise- a real gem- don’t miss out. Would prefer to say- don’t book- so more room for when I want to go back - We’ll be back very soon. Our party ranged from 9months upwards- all very safe

“Lovely house in a beautiful setting.”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2018

Comfortable house, welcoming and beautifully clean. Location is peaceful but not isolated. Lovely walks by the river and good pubs across the river.

“Easter break”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2018

Highly recommend this lovely house and its stunning location. The house was very clean, spacious and extremely well equipped. The owner couldn’t do anymore to provide information, and added a lovely personal touch by leaving my father a card and bottle for his 70th birthday. The facilities such as the pool table/table football etc created entertainment for both adults and children. A lovely, relaxing break.

“Birthday weekend”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2017

Had a wonderful weekend in riversdale lodge, everything you needed was there. Fab facilities, walks and eating out. It's the best cottage/lodge I have stayed in. Will definitely be back.
