Holiday Rental House
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. ...Riversdale Lodge is set in the heart of Symonds Yat overlooking the River Wye.

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.More
