Great location and the bed was super comfy. Great washing facilities for the dog, this come in handy! The tv is a little small on the wall, and maybe a selection of dvds would of been great.

Tips:

If you like walking and exploring then the trails opposite the lodge are a great start. Takes you right up to Yat Rock view point. The Saracens Inn at the riverside is a great spot for a bit of lunch and refreshments, the climb back up the steps is a killer but great way of burning off that food.

Symonds Yat rock lodge is the perfect place to stay for a quiet holiday. It was so lovely and I couldn’t recommend it more. We will certainly be returning again this year and will probably make it our primary location to get away.

Tips:

There’s a guide in the lodge full of all the information you would need: restraunts, order in, places to visit, activities! The facilities were amazing, your luggage and food is really all you need.

We have stayed here a few times and decided to stay in one of the new apartments. The new apartment was really spacious with a large bathroom and bedroom, it was really light and very comfortable, our dog enjoyed having all the room to move around. Definitely worth a stay, we are going back again in February.

Tips:

The location is great you literally walk out the front door and the forest is on the opposite side of the road. You can walk from here up to Symonds Yat Rock which is lovely.

Excellent location and the apartment is exactly what we were after. Views were stunning and we will definitely be coming back as soon as we can organise it!

Tips:

The New Inn pub about a mile up the road is an excellent rural pub with good pub grub and a warm friendly atmosphere. The recommended forest walks just over the road are a must, but allow plenty of time as they can be pretty slow going with the terrain.

Tips:

The owners supply a file which is jam packed with leaflets and information on the surrounding area which was Very useful when it came to getting a take away :D it's amazing how much there actually is to do in the area considering it's location.

A few dead flies found by window and in the shower light, didn't bother us, however, may put others off. Lovely, modern apartment in a good, central location. Would stop again.

A great place to stay with great accommodation and extremely dog friendly. Facilities for both guests and their dogs is of the highest quality. Fabulous views and instant access to the forest.

Tips:

Symonds Yat is only a short walk or drive away. There are plenty of activities for the more adventurous or just a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Take a trip on the river cruise, and enjoy the forest walks. Good pubs and restaurants to suit every taste are within easy reach.

Such a lovely location with beautiful views as you woke up, the facilities of the lodge were just perfect, everything you needed. Extra thoughts like the washing up liquid/dishwasher tablets/tea&coffee/ tea towel and kitchen roll was excellent so you didn't need to pack these things. Beds were super comfy and jus loved the style of the lodges home from home.

Tips:

Found a lovely little country pub called the Dog & Muffler, food was excellent and the prices even better, it was very warm and friendly. We will definitely be going back.

Tips:

Lots of things to see and do if you want to be adventurous or just the perfect place to relax and chill out if that is what suits you best. Symonds Yat close by and the walks in the woods make this a place to remember. Would certainly recommend it and no doubt we will be returning.

We had a wonderful stay at the Lodge - the location was quiet, very scenic, and relatively easy to get to minus some steep hills coming past Symonds Yat. The starry sky in the evening was stunning - we could even see the milky way! Our only downside was that we couldn't connect to the WiFi - we were in House 1 so may have been too far from the router. The TV was also quite small and high up on the wall, so we used our laptop for watching things on. Overall, wonderful property, very clean, and nicely laid out. The hosts were polite and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. They even included a huge folder of information, local events, activities, takeout menus, contact information, and so much more. Highly recommended.

Tips:

The Lodge is just up the road from Symonds Yat Rock which has stunning views, and some nice pubs down by the River Wye. Coleford isn't far which has Puzzlewood, Clearwell Caves, the Perrygrove Railway and more. Monmouth is also only a 15 minute drive, which is a lovely town with some nice places to eat. I highly recommend driving up to the Kymin (it's a steep winding path but worth the drive) which is a breath-taking view across the towns. Finally there are some lovely cycle routes in the Forest of Dean, and Tintern Abbey is a 20-25 minute drive that is well worth exploring.

+ We booked very late for this break so we counted ourselves lucky to get this booking. We were very impressed with the whole process from being confirmed to paying the bill. The access by using the last three numbers of your mobile is genius. The unit was just great and even accommodated my son ,his wife and three grandchildren when they visited for breakfast. It was very hot when we arrived and the Mezzanine was extremely hot. It would have been nice if the window above the front door could have been opened.

Tips:

Andersons forest house in Coleford opposite the fire station is worth a visit. Quite expensive but they booked seven of us for an evening meal at short notice on a Friday Evening. The three Grand Children were impressed with their meals as were us adults

We stayed in No 5, one of the new larger lodges. It was perfect! Spacious, clean and with all the facilities you need for a self catering break. All lodges are great and have lovely views of the countryside and we were so lucky to have the weather to enjoy them. The owners were very friendly and enquired whether we had everything we needed and gave us suggestions on where to eat. They also provide a very detailed visitors folder with details of pubs, attractions and walks etc. I really like how these also showed which were dog friendly

Tips:

Do the Symonds Yat Rock walk and stop off for a coffee and homemade cake in the log cabin near the carpark. Lovely!

A very clean & tidy although we had no Wifi service while we were at the Lodge ( not even in the garden). Apart from a couple of small things ( i.e. the towel hooks in the bathroom are too small & the thick duvet on the bed far too hot for summer nights!), we found the lodge well situated for lovely walks & pubs etc. The dog bowl & towels were a nice touch too, although found the immediate surrounds of the lodge not very amenable for dog exercise!! Thank you for having us; we miss the friendly sheep in the field ! Jane & Richard

Tips:

Lots of lovely places to eat around the area & we visited the New Inn, the Dog & Muffler & the Miners & all very good especially the Dog & Muffler ( great food & really good value!) Walks from the lodge good to the Rock & we liked Ross on Wye & Chepstow lovely places to visit.

Excellent design of the new apartments. Great views, especially from the garden we opened out onto. Could do with a few more basics on arrival - tea bags and coffee supplied but no milk is a bit frustrating!

The walk throught the forest over to the other side of the river is worth while. Especially if you can stop at the Saracens. Good food and great location. The Ostrich at Newland was also great. Very relaxed.

The lodge is in a fantastic location and suited us perfectly for the type of break we wanted. It was nice to be able to walk to the places we wanted to see and not be driving everywhere constantly. For those walks, the instructions in the folder were fantastic - very clear and easy to follow and allowed us to enjoy our walks. The lodge itself was beautiful. Very clean and good facilities. The kitchen had everything we needed which is quite uncommon in self catering accommodation. It was also nice to know that we were able to contact the hosts should we need to, but left us to our break if not. A fantastic break for us, thank you very much!

Tips:

We didn't try anything other than those walks/pubs recommended in the folder at the lodge, which were fantastic.

2nd time staying here and would definitely return again. Plenty to do and see relatively close by and even more if willing to travel out a bit further.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view is to die for! The accommodation was perfect for our needs, a comfy bed, well equiped kitchen, piping hot water, and lots of little touches which make all the difference. For example, a hose to wash down the dogs. For dog owners it's a dream having the forest opposite.

Tips:

Buy fresh duck eggs from the cottage in the forest.

This is my fourth trip to Rock Lodge and I’ve always enjoyed it. The location is fantastic, especially with a dog as it’s right opposite the forest where there are beautiful walks through the forest. The lodges are perfect for a short stay, comfortable, clean and well equipped.

Tips:

The Saracens Head down on the banks of the Wye is a lovely pub serving great food with a great view, and The Boat Inn isnalso well worth a visit. Your in a great position for visiting some of the surrounding towns and of course there is Offas Dyke walkway which can be picked up in many locations.

This was the second time we'd stayed at Rock Lodge. The apartments are ideal with great views and fantastic dog walking (with good pubs at the half way mark)! The location is great being just over the road from the Forest of Dean.

Tips:

The Dog & Muffler serves a great hearty lunch and is very dog friendly. Saracen's Head is friendly although we didn't eat there. Avoid Ye Olde Ferrie Inn at Symonds Yat West, the landlord and staff seem to resent having customers in the place!

The location of Rock Lodge is superb for visiting the different centres in the Forest of Dean. We have stayed at Rock Lodge several times before and this time we have noticed how tired the rooms are looking and the outside of the building could do with repainting. The accommodation is satisfactory however if it was my apartment I would replace the tv with a large one as it is hard to read the guide because it is so small and so far away from the seating area. The only other comment I can make is regarding the kettle. Please look inside the kettle in apartment 1, this is in desperate need of replacing. When you look into it you will see why. The courtyard has also been reduced in size making you park away from your apartment. This we found was a pain especially when you have a lot of items to take from your car to the apartment.

Tips:

Excellent location, lovely views, just a few nightly items need addressing.

Rock lodge is a wonderful place to stay, amazing views clean comfortable accommodation. Ideally located to enjoy the Forest of Dean or Wye river. Two suggestions to make ones stay even better would be some kind of coat hanging rack, clothes drying airer in the room full time. (I did see in the notes they're available on request). Secondly there is only one decent sized saucepan two would be handy.

Highly recommend the Saracens Head for a meal in Symonds Yat. The Wye river is a lovely spot for some kayaking & walking.

Couldn't fault the apartment(number 8)or the location.The views from both inside and out are stunning and you can walk for miles in the forest starting across the road.The only negative is the lack of WIFI. It can be received by the dining room and out front of complex.A few simple boosters would overcome this problem but other than that I can't say anything else bad about the place.....because there isn't anything bad about this place.

Tips:

If you like walking in forests,then this place is for you. If you like watching/listening to sheep,this place is for you. if you like just relaxing,this place is for you.....in fact I'd say no matter what,this place is for you. There is a town about 5 mins drive away with a large Co-op and other shops along with a couple of take-aways.If you're self catering this can be quite handy...as we found out.

Only a few small negatives TV was a bit small, from distance sat on sofa wasnt that easy to see. Larger bath towel would be handy for after shower to walk back up to bedroom. Sofa v comfy but quite small for 2 adults maybe a separate chair as well. Although great 4 dogs allowed could do with a toilet area for them! Handy forest just over the road but when its dark somewhee closer ideally needed.

Lovely location. We were the only ones there during our 4 night stay so the whole place was very quiet. Accommodation was excellent, but as in previous reviews, Wifi was non existent even in residents garden where it's supposedly better. Makes using phone for local information etc impossible. Fridge had been turned off, so on arrival with food for our self catering break, there was no where to keep it cool for a few hours. Despite these issues, we would go back, beautiful area & fantastic walks. Some great dog friendly pubs but unless it's Summer & light til late, they're a taxi ride away.

Excellent location and very friendly couple who run the B & B and self catering apartments. Very scenic and only a hop skip and jump across the road and your in the forest. Deer were on the edge of the forest in the mornings.

Tips:

Walked along river to Monmouth. Got bus back to Staunton and then walked down through forest to campsite and then along the edge of the woods back to Rock Lodges. ( Avoided big climb back up on way back) Peregrines are great to see at Symonds Rock in the summer. Be aware that the river ferry from the Saracens Head doesn't run if the water level and river is fast flowing in the winter.

A quiet, peaceful country hideaway complete with beautiful views and forest walks on the doorstep, or longer down to the river Wye threading through its lush, green valley, or shorter to the Rock with the famous and always wonderful view. What could be better? Throw in this lovely self-catering apartment, clean and modern, with everything I needed (except a bath to soak in after the day's exertions, though I think the larger apartment has a bath) and I'm feeling completely at home. Darren and Claire are lovely, warm and friendly people who couldn't have done more to make the stay perfect.

Would expect the side access to have a secure barrier so dogs can't run out into the car park / road. (Accepting that space was restricted) we didn't like the fact that we didn't have an enclosed area outside each apartment so we could have the back doors open without losing the dog.

Take a night off from your self catering and take a short walk to the New Inn for a lovely evening meal. The Forest is right on your doorstep, enjoy exploring the many paths and try to end up at Symonds Yat East where you can reward yourself with a riverside pint at The Saracens.

Thank you for a lovely week. We will definitely be back to stay again as the room and view is amazing and for 2 years running we have had a lovely time.

Tips:

Had 2 lovely meals at the Mill race and on our last night we went to the white horse inn at staunton which was the best meal I've had in a while. We had great fun canoeing down the river and we went for some lovely walks recommended in the folder

A wonderful find and a definite home from home, clean, tidy and all to a high standard. Met on arrival with a big smile and shown to our apartment, took in the view and then went for a stroll around the local area. Fantastic and now looking to plan return trips! Thank you.

Tips:

The information pack provided was excellent and you will find something for everyone. Whether walking, driving or cycling there is plenty to see and do in the local area, or just sit back and relax with a book admiring the beautiful countryside.

The only thing I was not comfortable with was the low ceiling height above one side of the bed. A Velux window enabling you to see outside and open for fresh air would transform the space, otherwise I cannot fault it.

Tips:

The Saracen's Head, by the river, for good food. Nature in Art well worth the visit.

Although I would recommend, we wouldn't stay again as we had no Wi-Fi even though it is advertised free Wi-Fi, also it is a good enough for base but not very comfortable as the small settee wasn't big enough and the tv on the wall is so small you squinted trying to watch it
