The Old Pump House (self catering cottage) at Symonds Yat West has recently undergone extensive renovations and has been converted into a lovely two bedroomed holiday cottage which overlooks the Wye Rapids. Situated in beautiful, wooded countryside, just a few miles away from the market town of Ross-on-Wye, The Old Pump House is an ideal place to stay, whatever type of holiday you are looking for. There are local activity centres nearby for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, such as rock climbing, cycling, canoeing or fishing and there is a good deal of wildlife to see whilst taking a leisurely stroll if you prefer to take things a little easier. The Old Pump House is located near to many places of scenic, natural and historic interest with Goodrich Castle, Yat Rock view point and other attractions being just a short drive or walk away.

Proprietors Sue and Malcolm designed and built the conversion themselves and have made every effort to ensure that your stay is a happy and comfortable one. The lounge at The Old Pump House is tastefully furnished and equipped with a television, a video and a dvd player as well as a few games, just in case the weather keeps you indoors for a while or you just wish to sit back and relax. The house is fitted with under floor heating and there is a fire to give a lovely cosy glow if it gets a little chilly.

There is a fully fitted kitchen / diner equipped with all essential items, including a dishwasher so you will have all you need to make you feel at home. If you prefer not to cook whilst on holiday there is a wide variety of pubs and restaurants in the vicinity, giving you a diverse choice of food and drink.

On the upper floor are two bedrooms, one of which is a double room, the other being a twin room. There is a shower room between the two and along the length of the landing is a window affording the most beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

There is a lockable storage facility for cycles and a barbecue is available for those lovely evenings when you might like to eat out on the patio, taking in the spectacular views of the Wye and Symonds Yat East.
