Fantastic stay in the lovely Ruardean suite, this time on a self catering basis. There was everything we needed in the room to be able to do our own breakfast for this stay. Lindy and Chris were as helpful and welcoming as always.

Beautifully furnished 4 poster ensuite room. Faultless breakfast overlooking garden area with views over fields and hills. The bedroom even had a plastic tray to store our muddy walking boots - excellent idea. I also like the idea of having your own door key with access directly from the car park so no having to disturb owners for keys. Ideally...

Excellent location. 2 mins from loads of walks around the river wye and Symonds Yat. Nice rooms and a great breakfast. Very friendly. Ideal for couples or small groups. 10 mins walk from the local pub with great food (and sky tv). But you need to book if you want to eat. Remember to take a torch as you will...

The Rock more than lived up to expectations. Large comfortable bed, spectacular views, great cooked breakfasts and good October weather. Chris and Lindy were charming and welcoming hosts and so knowledgeable about the area. We loved it all, including their two friendly dogs and ponies. We have already recommended the Rock to friends and family, so many places to visit...
