Great for the views when the weathers good

Thankfully we were in the region for a few days and were able to get the views of the river. You need signs for East Symonds Yat or Symonds Rock and expect some near misses from... read more

A beautiful place high up in the Forest of Dean with wonderful views looking down on the River Wye. From the look out point you can also see across to the nesting site of a pair of peregrine falcons. There are lots and lots of walks you can take through the woods, most are marked. There is a visitor centre... More

Thankfully we were in the region for a few days and were able to get the views of the river. You need signs for East Symonds Yat or Symonds Rock and expect some near misses from traffic in the opposite direction. There are a few road-side parking spots just by the footbridge and disabled parking within a short walk of... More

You cannot ask for a better day out with friends, family, your partner or just hanging out by yourself. The walking trails are easy and the walk up the hill is worth the view. Surrounding pubs and small hotels are very hospitable. A perfect day would be a nice walk, ferry ride across the river, then sitting and having a... More

Fell upon symonds yat not knowing what it was. Plenty of parking, then checked out routed walks which is very confusing as walks have same colour guided marks??? Found way to the yay, and wow what a view, very impressive. We walked down to the river in the valley, quite a steep walk, but riverside very pleasant with a few... More

It has certainly been said many times before but this vantage point, view & approach route must be one of the tops in the British Isles. If you can manage to take visiting foreigners with you on your visit you will have earned their awe & gratitude. Leaving the "official" viewing point also explore behind the car park & site... More

Have just spent an amazing weekend camping at this campsite. It has everything you need and very friendly. We have been here on many occasions and have always had a lovely time. Plenty of walks and entertainment. Would highly recommend.

We used this campsite for the second time after we used if last year for a canoeing trip. The only member of staff we had contact with was a young girl who claimed to be the manager. She was very rude to us as soon as we arrived and overcharged us, we know this because we asked another group that... More
