Immediately outside the house there is a patio area with 4 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 £25 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 poop 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.

Location description from owner

The England region

Symonds Yat is a village in the Forest of Dean and a popular tourist destination, straddling the River Wye and the borders of the English counties of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, it is within a few miles of the Welsh border. The name is said to come from Robert Symonds, a 17th-century sheriff of Herefordshire and "yat" as an old word for a gate or pass.

Tourist activities include canoeing and kayaking down the rapids, boat trips, a maze, an oriental garden, and a number of country pubs and guest houses, including the Old Court, The Saracens Head Inn, Ye Old Ferrie Inn and the Wyenot.

River crossings - Two hand ("pull") cable ferries enable foot passengers to cross the river, powered by ferrymen who pull the ferry across the river using an overhead cable. The coonnection by road is upstream over Huntsham bridge; One ferry is operated by the Saracens Head Inn and the other is operated by the Old Ferry Inn.

Biblins Bridge - A suspension bridge was built over the river by the Forestry Commission using local oak timbers in 1957. Linking Symonds Yat East to the Biblins site, the bridge was fully refurbished in 1997 and rotten timbers and the two support towers were replaced.

Symonds Yat Rock - overlooks a spectacular gorge through which the River Wye snakes. This rock is the perfect viewpoint from which to watch raptors. A pair of Peregrine Falcons that nest annually within sight of the rock can be watched through telescopes set up by the RSPB. Buzzards, goshawks and hobbies are also regularly seen and it is sometimes possible to see migrant raptors such as ospreys and European Honey Buzzards.

Seven Sisters Rocks - are seven limestone pillars on the Herefordshire side of the River Wye.

Rock Climbing - The River Wye at Symonds Yat has cut a deep gorge in the Carboniferous Limestone exposing numerous impressive cliff faces. There is extensive and popular rock climbing in this area with long single pitches at all grades.

Symonds Yat
