“Always an excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My sister and I have stayed here three times and it's always been an excellent holiday home. On the ground floor there is an large combined lounge and kitchen plus plus a small cloakroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms one with a double bed and the other with 2 single beds. There is also a bathroom. Outside there is a large garden sloping down to towards the river. Alongside the house is a large parking area. Symonds Yat is a beautiful part of the country.

“The Perfect Place to Stay.”

I had not been to Symonds Yat since my younger days but glad we decided to stay at the Old Pump House. It was the perfect place to stay. A credit to the owners Malcolm & Sue who painstakingly built the Old Pump House to a high standard for guests to stay and enjoy.
Possitioned over looking the Rapids and down a quiet lane next to the woods it was ideal to either sit it in the garden and watch the wildlife and watch the canoes going down the rapids or to step out the door and walk miles, away from any roads which was perfect with the dogs.
We will return.
Thank you

“little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

had a wonderful weekend in the pump house. Cosy, nicely decorated, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Really nice touches - bread, butter, milk, tea and coffee - even marmalade! washing up liquid etc. - makes life so easy. As for the views, just gorgeous, 3 choices of where to sit in the garden. We followed the walk in the book that goes from the old pump house and up to the caves, what a lovely walk. We have been visiting symonds yat for many years and will definitely be back to the old pump house - perfect base, even if the ferry wasn't running (river too high and fast).

“They don't get much better than this!”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Old Pump house is excellent accommodation set in wonderful scenery.
The photos on the website, as good as they are, do not do this place justice.
This was my 6th visit and others who have visited following my recommendations have always agreed wholeheartedly with this choice of holiday accommodation.
The owners have obviously put in a lot of though when designing this buildding and keep it in excellent maintained order.
Recommend 100%

“Great location, top spec accommodation”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed with friends, 2 couples (so had to draw straws for the double room!!). Ample parking and useful shed for the bikes... Lovely walks in the area and some great pubs near by. Accommodation was clean and fresh with beautiful views of the valley (once the mist had subsided!!).Would definitely stay again with the kids and would recommend to our friends. We liked the little touches e.g. printout of weather for the weekend left on the table & place-mat for the dog bowls, thx
