Symond’s Yat Rock

Symond’s Yat Rock


Well worth it for the view, Symond’s Yat Rock is an amazing lookout point reached by a short walk from Symond’s Yat (pay and display!) car park. There’s a little cafe that will bring you water for your pup, as well as public toilets and many benches and sites you can safely have BBQs and picnics!

From the rock & car park you can take many different walks through the local woodland and its a short drive down to the bottom of the cliff.

A pair of peregrine falcons nest annually within sight of the rock can be watched through telescopes set up by the RSPB.

our favourite place to go!

We absolutely love Symonds Yat. There is so much to see and do and a day just isn't enough so if you can, make a weekend of it and either camp or stay in a local B&B.

There are so many activities here (if you are without your dogs then you can do water activities such as kayaking etc) however as you will most likely have your dog(s) like we do then you can do so much walking and take in the ridiculously stunning scenery and nature around you. We love nothing more than a steady walk around (as we have a senior dog) and walk for miles in the day. We take a picnic with us and sit around either at the main centre on the benches (there's also ice cream stand here) or we pop a blanket down and stop where ever our fancy takes us.

There are parts of the river where the dogs can have a little paddle although just keep an eye out as there are lots of birds and other animals around so don't disturb them. Also the water can be deep in parts so make sure you check the signs around and only swim/paddle where safe to do so.

On hotter of days, there are plenty of shaded walks in the woods - we take a ball with us and have a good run around when we can to really get the cobwebs off us.

A true spectacle of an area, a must see!

There are loads of attractions near by too such as mazes and other things to do so if you don't fancy too much walking, you can still get the most out of your day/weekend.
