Please note No children under 12 years old. The Rock is located in the picturesque Forest of Dean on the edge of the Wye Valley which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a short forest walk from one of the finest viewpoints in southern England at Symonds Yat Rock. The River Wye meanders far below with spectacular far reaching views which has made it a very popular tourist destination since Victorian times. The forest was the royal hunting grounds of the Tudor kings and The Rock Inn as it was formerly known has its origin around that time. The Rock has not been a public house for many years but the two studios were built in what was the old skittle alley and Forest Cottage is built on what was the site of the original stables for the old inn.\nAs this is a popular area for walking guides and maps are provided to help you make the most of your stay. Cycling and mountain biking are also popular in the forest and bike storage is available. The area also provides plenty of opportunities for bird and wildlife watching canoeing climbing and even caving. Sheep are allowed to roam free within the statutory forest area and it is not unusual to see fallow and muntjac deer. Symonds Yat is home to peregrine falcon and goshawks are one of the more unusual birds to spot in the forest.\nThe Rock has a large private car park from its heritage as a pub. The two studios and the cottage all have private patios leading to their own entrance so you are free to come and go as you please. All have views over the garden across open farmland to the Ruardean Valley stretching 25 miles to the Malvern Hills.\nForest Cottage is semi-detached next to the owner’s home with a contemporary styled open plan livingdiningkitchen area on the ground floor and a large upstairs bedroom with a kingsize bed and and separate shower room. This cottage is dog friendly and dogs can be exercised in the forest.\nRuardean Studio and Clearwell Studio are both ground floor contemporary styled open plan studios which enjoy fantastic views across the garden and open farmland. There is outdoor seating in which to enjoy a glass of wine and your favourite meals. These studios are pet free for those who may suffer with allergies.\nShop 2 miles pub and restaurant ¾ mile.\nForest Cottage ref UKC3032 can be booked together with Ruardean Studio ref UKC3033 and Clearwell Studio ref UKC3034 to accommodate up to 6 guests. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/107/840/10719635.jpg UKC3032

    We’ve just spent a fabulous weekend here. The cottage is beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures on the website and has everything you need. The view from the bedroom is amazing. The hosts (and their two gorgeous dogs) are very friendly and have lots of information about the area. You only have to cross the road and you are in the forest which is the starting point for a lovely circular walk to Symonds Yat Rock. The New Inn is just a 15 minute walk away and The Dog & Muffler and The White Horse @Staunton a short drive away are well worth a visit. We will definitely be back as there is so much more to explore.

    My wife & I stayed at Forest Cottage for a well earned late summer break for the first week of September. The accommodation was perfect (very spacious & modern, but homely) & we were able to chill-out immediately on arrival. We managed to easily maintain that sense of relaxation throughout our stay & our good luck with the weather helped extend that feeling beyond the Cottage. The king sized bed was so comfortable that we slept-in most days (I usually wake without an alarm around 5a.m.). The Kitchen was well equipped & we were able to eat-in frequently. The owners were lovely & although they made themselves available to us, we only saw them occasionally in passing as we never needed to trouble them for anything except for some local knowledge about the area when we first arrived and to let them know we were leaving on our final morning. Oh, we did happen to be going out just as they'd come back from picking some of their lovely apples which they kindly shared with us. There are two Studio Apartments with lovely views attached to the other side of the owners home if you wanted to stay with a group of people larger than two. I've no hesitation in recommending Forest Cottage to other family & friends.

    Lovely cottage for two people - spacious and well equipped. Good range of tourist leaflets and walking routes in the cottage. Ample parking. Owners friendly and helpful. The only downside for us is that this cottage is entirely open plan and not just open plan downstairs as the information describes. This means that the stairs lead immediately from the living area up to the bedroom and thus noise also travels. There is no "bedroom door" to keep out noise. A problem if one wants a lie in and the other doesn't! We feel this needs to be specified in the pre-booking information as we only discovered this when we arrived.

    My wife and I spent a thoroughly enjoyable week (3 -10 May 2019) in this charming cottage which is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. The spacious upstairs bedroom is beautiful with a spectacular view over the countryside. We very much enjoyed our walks including the circular walk from the cottage to Symond's Yat Rock (twice). Plenty of easy car parking at the property; shops, pubs within a small radius (useful guest information folder in the cottage). The cottage exceeded our expectations; we loved it. Thank you to the friendly, helpful owners.

    A lovely place to go to switch off. Beautiful countryside with the Symonds Yat viewpoint within walking distance. Definitely need a car to get to the local towns but Coleford is a very well-equipped place with various takeaways, grocery shops and a nice little local cinema.

    The accommodation is in a great location if you want to explore on foot and leave the car parked up. The best views are from the bedroom, unfortunately the dining table just looks at the back of a fence over the road. From a practical perspective, needed more drinking glasses and very little was supplied in ovenware. The microwave was so small that the plates didn't fit, and nothing was provided like tin foil, kitchen roll, cling film etc as has been in other places we have stayed. There is no privacy due to the location of the studios access and the owner's house and with no blinds at the windows, be careful!

    A relaxing stay in a very cosy cottage, with cycling, birdwatching, forest walks, and steam trains close by. Would recommend this location to anyone. Thank you very much.

    This cottage was one of the best we have stayed in, it had been thoughtfully furnished and very well equipped. The décor was relaxed and comfortable, and the location perfect for those who wish to get away and enjoy walking, birdwatching and the beautiful scenery of the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. We received a very warm welcome by the owners and cannot recommend this location too highly.
