Dog-friendly Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat is a sleepy little village in the Wye Valley with a gorgeous walk through woodlands, along the river Wye and up a steep hill to an amazing viewpoint. Yat Rock has spectacular views (including of an Iron age ancient hill Fort) that you will want to spend time taking in. The sunrises and sunsets shown in look amazing.

We parked at the start of the Peregrine Path and wandered towards Symonds Yat Rock, taking lots of twists and turns. For those requiring more structure, Forestry England have mapped out the best routes here.

Unfortunately everywhere we tried to book for food was full – it was a school holiday week in August! We took a picnic and ate on a verge next to the Biblins youth campsite (over the bridge shown in the first picture). If you are looking for dog-friendly eateries, I recommend that you ring in advance as, according to the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley website, the only dog-friendly eatery is the Saracens Head Inn.

  1. That looks like it would be quite a hike for that view but well worth it, especially if there’s a swim before (and after). That actually looks a lot like where I grew up. It almost feels like home.
