One of the most spectacular natural beauty spots in the area is Symonds Yat with its famous look out point from Yat rock where you may be lucky to spot a Peregrine nesting. Once you have exerted yourself on the climb up you can walk down and enjoy a drink at the ancient Saracen’s Head Inn.


The Forest of Dean offers many walks as well as attractions such as the magical Puzzlewood which has been featured in films such as Starwars, Merlin and Dr Who. The remains of Goodrich Castle and Tintern Abbey can be enjoyed in their stunning locations and if you fancy seeing history from under the ground then go and visit Clearwell Caves.
