“Amazing Natural Beauty”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Well looked after country park with simply stunning views from the Rock well worth the £3.50 to park and amazing place everyone should visit at least once!
Spectacular but worth trying to work round the weather so you go on a nice day. Lots of walks for all abilities.

“Kids eyes lit up, my purse sighed.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

When we first looked inside the arcade it looked brilliant with a huge arcade, bumper cars, bouncy castle, trampolines and soft play. The kids had a great time on the arcade games and there was a real variety, the toilet facilities were modern and clean and there is a café inside. The children then unfortunately spotted the soft play that cost a shocking £2 per child for ten minutes, bearing in mind we normally pay £3-£4 for unlimited play or at least two hours at busy periods. I paid up and after nine minutes my children were called out, they were the only ones in there and when I argued they still had a minute I was told they did not. We left straight away and will not be returning. No wonder the place was empty on a Saturday, the soft play we normally attend you have to book its so busy. The staff were unfriendly and Job worths.It is such a shame as there is not many rainy day activities in the area and this place could be brilliant.

“Quality views”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Symonds Yat is a lovely walk through the Forest of Dean boasting some exceptional views, especially from Symonds Yat rock. There are walks for all different types of walkers ranging from the easy walk which is about 1.5 miles to the harder walks with varying lengths and gradients.

It costs £3.50 to park and has a cafe if you want to stop off for a drink or snack and toilet facilities.

Would definitely recommend

The weather was superb which enhanced the fabulous views. Visit the log cabin cafe too, for a wide range of snacks and drinks.
