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/143/{pixelwidth}/1431534.jpg UKC3033

    We visited the Ruardean Studio in August this summer, the studio was immaculately clean, spacious and equipt with everything we could have needed. The owners, Lindy and Chris were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived - not forgetting the two gorgeous dogs they own! On arrival Lindy took us to the studio, showed us around and took us through the welcome pack which included local maps and brochures of things to do. The views from the studio were breathtaking, we were extremely lucky as the weather was fantastic for the whole of our visit and we thoroughly enjoyed breakfasts on the terrace as well as a glass of wine or two on the chairs at the front of the property. We will definitely be visiting again and will definitely be recommending the studio to our friends and family! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable Lindy, Chris and the dogs! x

    We loved it! So peaceful with fabulous views and wonderful walks on the doorstep. Didn’t move the car from Friday to Monday. The studio had everything we needed, was spotlessly clean and surprisingly spacious. Lovely owners who live on site. Will definitely book again!

    Our third stay in the Ruardean Studio, once again it was spotlessly clean with crisp clean bedlinen(a must in my world !). Lindy and Chris the owners are lovely friendly people who will always help with any local information required. The weather was very kind to us enabling us to enjoy many long walks in the forest and along the river. Many thanks to Lindy and Chris, we shall be back again

    This is an excellent place to stay particularly if you enjoy birdwatching and walking. Symonds Yat is easily walkable and within 20 minutes you can be at Nagshead RSPB reserve and within an hour at Slimbridge WWT. The owners are very friendly and the situation of the studio is superb. Would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay

    Excellent for our 3-night April break - magnificent views when (and if) the early morning mist lifted! Plenty of sheep - gambolling lamb time when we were there. Very convenient for a good circular walk taking in Symonds Yat and a picturesque stretch of the Wye. Well-appointed though, as were doing all our own cooking rather than eating out, a bit limited in space to store food. Would certainly consider booking again.
