Due to the pandemic travel restrictions our honeymoon plans changed from an exotic beach holiday to a staycation. However, on arriving at Symonds Yat Rock Lodge any disappointment we may have been feeling instantly disappeared. The property itself was so cosy & homely with lots of great little touches. The large windows made the most of the spectacular views & it was such a joy to arrive back there every day after our walks. The location was perfect; being right in the forest its canopy offered shelter from the rainy days & we were still able to have some great walks. The viewpoint from Symonds Yat Rock is a must! When the weather did catch us out the lodge offered the perfect haven with all its inviting comforts. We stayed 3 nights & for 2 of those we walked to the New Inn pub which was only 20 mins away & served amazing, reasonably priced food. Lodge owner Claire was so helpful & responsive every time we had any questions & we are so grateful to her & Darren for this gem of a place. We cannot wait to return. Who needs exotic beaches!…
We stayed in the twin lodge no 3 for 6 days in August 2020 What a lovely place. Everything you could need to stay self catering. Lovely outlook over the fields. And right across the road from the Forest of Dean. Probably 200 yards from the entrance to Symonds Yat Rock. Ideal for walking in the Forest. We could not fault the accommodation. Plenty of car parking. Near to all places to visit, Monmouth, Ross on Wye, Coleford and perfect for visiting Puzzlewood and Caves and walking.
Having just returned from a two night stay in apartment 4 we wanted to highly recommend a stay here. Apartment was spotless, we wanted for nothing and the view was incredible. We were so impressed by the effort Claire and Darren have gone to to make guests stay comfortable, we found the information book left for us about the area etc etc so helpful and detailed. The area is stunning, symonds yat rock viewpoint most definitely a must a long with a walk down to the river. we will most definitely will be returning.
Had a fantastic safe and relaxed stay in the Forest of Dean staying at this peaceful lodge apartment. Weather great and views from our patio over rolling countryside. Owners made sure everything sterile and supplied all sanitising products too. Thanks to Clare and Darren the owners.
We had a fantastic stay in July. The accommodation is very comfortable and had everything we could have wished for. The outdoor space was stunning and we chose to eat there every night as the views were beautiful. The accommodation is in a great location for walks in the woods and access to Symonds Yat. We will definitely be coming back.
