Symond's Yat view point

Yat means Gate - but I know not who Symond was! The view point at Symond's Yat allows spectacular views over the river Wye, a mere 7 miles (as the crow flies) from our holiday cottage at Green Bottom. It is a must-visit for anyone in the area.

Access to the viewpoint is by board-walk from the car park: photo 1 shows the board walk with out cat, Misty, enjoying the view. So the viewpoint is disabled and child-friendly. <-P>If you care to descend to the River Wye, a passenger ferry will take you across the river. From there you can climb up into Lord's Wood

To the south of the viewpoint is a huge area of forest which you can explore. Or maybe a walk along by the river to Biblin's Bridge and back on the other side.
