The Royal Lodge

The feel

On the edge of the Royal forest of Dean bordered by the river Wye and the forest, we are in an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest. The Royal Lodge is nestled just below Symonds Yat Rock and stands exclusively in the grounds of almost 5 acres overlooking the river.

This makes us the perfect venue for your special day, with the choice of an outdoor Ceremony in our rustic pagoda on our raised sun trapped lawn overlooking the river or an indoor Ceremony in our newly built Kingfisher suite. Or even your perfect reception venue following a church service or registry office.

Church services can be connected via river cruise boats to and from the church to add that extra panache to your day.

The Royal Lodge boasts a truly romantic setting to ensure you have the most unique day, we ensure your wedding is planned to every specific detail that you require.

Whether you are planning an intimate affair or large wedding party our in house coordinator is on hand throughout the entire process to help create and plan the perfect wedding, bringing everything together on the day to create a truly memorable event.

The ultimate build your own wedding where the only limitation is the budget available.
