Lovely views and great walks. Its location is a bit isolated if you're looking for a lot of nightlife. Ross-on-Wye is not far away for any cashpoints petrol etc. but we booked this place to get away from it all and relax which was achieved. Beautiful part of the country.

Absolutely beautiful area, plenty of pretty towns and villages, and of course the river. Historic castles and towns nearby. Easily accessible from the A40, but of course minor roads may be single track. We weren't interested in nightlife, so can't comment on that.

Wonderful walks from Merthyr Tydfil. Worth the drive. Saracens Head in Symonds Yat is a great restaurant. It overlooks a lovely view of the hand pulled ferry. Kayak adventures are recommended. Such fun.

Symonds Yat has some fantastic trails and places of natural beauty. Good safe parking facilities available. For the more adventurous, outdoor sports are popular especially canoeing/ kayaking. Food is expensive but a short drive will find local pubs

Very scenic little village along the river Wye. Would have been nice to visit at a warmer and drier time of year where you could walk along the river for several miles, but at least there were not hoards of other tourists!

Recommended in Symonds Yat

Situated just yards away from the river with superb views up and down this deep valley.

It's the only way to see the river unless you cycle.

We walked a 3 mile walk in Symonds Yat East

Appreciate the beauty of the area
