Having visited Wyewood Cottage for a week in September and discovering what a beautiful area it was in, we decided to find out what it was like in winter - and we certainly did that! We booked for a weekend and were due to leave on Sunday morning but it had snowed heavily overnight. We didn't want to risk the...

About the neighbourhood
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, a little later to enjoy the wild garlic. The Forest of Dean is nearby.
Car recommended
How to get there
From London - Exit M4 J15. Follow road to Gloucester and then signs (A40) to Ross on Wye and continue until you see turning for Symond Yat West.

From the North - M5 - M50 - A40

Alternatively, if you wish to drive up the Wye valley, follow signs for Chepstow and Tintern. Turn right at Monmouth and follow signs for Symonds Yat West.

Continue down the lane, past The Paddocks bear right uphill until the lane starts to go downhill again, near the bottom of the hill, you will see the sign on the right for Wye Rapids. It is always a little further down the lane than you expect!
