The beautiful villages of Symonds Yat East and West, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire are two of the most well known in the Wye Valley. Approximately six miles from the town of Ross-on-Wye, the villages are a hive of activity and a popular spot for taking forest walks, canoeing, fishing, taking a cruise along the River Wye or enjoying a cream tea. There is a traditional rope ferry, which is moored at the Saracen's Head Inn and crosses the river regularly, taking passengers between the two villages. As well as being a pleasurable experience, this short crossing saves a five mile journey by road. For an interesting insight into Symonds Yat East, you maight like to take a look at yateast.com, created by our good friend, Symonds Yat East resident, Nick Stephens..

SHORT FILMS ABOUT SYMONDS YAT AND THE WYE VALLEY
   

At 500 feet above sea level, Yat Rock lies above the villages of Symonds Yat East and West affording spectacular views of the river and surrounding countryside. For bird watchers, Yat Rock is a popular place for sighting the Peregrine Falcon during summer months. Historic Goodrich Castle is also very close and is one of the many attractions open to visitors locally and King Arthur's Cave is well worth a visit.

Whether you are looking for peace and tranquillity, beautiful scenery, a river cruise from either the east or west side of the river, or any number of other activities, with great country pubs, such as the Saracen's Head or Wye Knot Inn and a wide variety of accommodation to choose from, Symonds Yat is the ideal place to take either a holiday or a short break.

Canoeing and kayaking on the River Wye  

Canoeing and kayaking on the River Wye is a popular local activity, mainly during the summer months but it is also an all year round activity for the more hardy and adventurous. You can either use your own craft or canoes can be hired to make the journey, which you may like to take a few days to complete, camping along the route. You can, of course, do only part of the journey, hiring a canoe for a day or part day....
