We drove here thinking there would be nice little cafes to sit and have a coffee, how wrong we were. We did sit and take in the so called view. Not worth the detour

Rather disappointed when we arrived, as there were works going on to improve the parking area and in the harbour so quite a lot fenced off. Walking through to the harbour was shocked to see something so well advertised had nothing there, nothing open not even to get a cup of tea. We did wander about to ensure we hadn't... More

As I live in Lydney, I have visited this place on many, many occasions. This place is good for people of all ages; Walking, Cycling, Dog Walking, Boating, Photography or just to admire the views. It also has a Yacht Club on-site and a place to store boats. It is also a popular place for -bird watching'. The only improvements... More

It is a good walk to the harbour from Lydney centre but well worth it. The walk along the river is pleasant. The harbour is different and very visitor friendly, except there are no toilet. There is disabled persons' access from one side of the harbour to the other.

Seemed further than expected from Lydney but interesting and attractive waterside wander with some unusual rock reveals (look through the holes in the rocks).

this should not be a tourist attraction, unless you have a boat there, or have a dog to walk... don't bother.

Not much there, but it's in a lovely area with great views across the estuary. There weren't many boats to see, but the yacht club had coffee and cakes for sale and the sun was shining!

It was slack water at low tide. Calm weather and a bit misty, but the view was wonderful and our guests were pleased to be able to pick out the two Severn crossings, Berkeley Castle, Berkeley Power Station, Oldbury Power Station, Sharpness Docks and the beginning of the Gloucester/Sharpness Canal. The little dock with its moored yachts is very picturesque.... More

Lydney harbour has the potential to be very good. but unfortunately this is not realised. its about time there were public toilets. a better car park. a café , a visitors centre. I could go on. the other thing spoiling one of our ( phil husband too) is the amount of dog poo on the narrow paths over the canal.... More
