Beautiful setting with the sound of the river and songbirds a constant pleasure. Quaint rooms with the benefit of a balcony. Will definitely be coming back
Lovely breakfast, just as we were told a one off it took a while but heh sometimes that's life, we have a nice room with the kids in a room off ours so good for that
The Hotel great location but a tired worn building poor plumbing. Food good and staff helpful and efficient.
Spring Cottage was really well equipped, have stayed in places before and had to bring or buy the basics which can be very inconvenient - down to kindling for the fire and olive oil to cook. We didn't use the car for the 3 days we were there, as there are plenty of walks from the doorstep, into beautiful ...
All was exactly as described. Well supplied, lovingly restored cottage.
Lovely B&B in a beautiful location. Nickie and her partner do a great job of making you feel welcome and looking after you during your stay. The views are stunning and the breakfast is hearty!
Amazing B&B. One of the best I've ever stayed in. Room was fabulous and of a super size, separate to other rooms. Luxurious bathroom with fab shower and stand alone bath. Lovely hosts who could not do more to make this a wonderful stay. Continental breakfast was varied and super fresh, from the orange ...
A lovely place to stay
The monastic ruins of Tintern Abbey are nestled in the heart of the Wye Valley area of outstanding natural beauty and can boast 900 years of history in their walls. This was the first Cistercian abbey built in Wales and only the second in Britain, and despite now being exposed to the elements, it remains one of the most stunning surviving examples of gothic architecture in the country.
Tintern Abbey was founded by Walter de Clare, lord of Chepstow, in 1131. Monks lived, worked and prayed here for 400 years until the abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536, along with all other monasteries in England, Wales and Ireland.
The buildings were left to ruin until the 18th Century, when interest was revived thanks to the beauty of the surrounding area. Tintern Abbey became famous as a subject of various songs, poems and works of art, with William Wordsworth among the figures to wax lyrical about this medieval landmark and its rural setting.
Today visitors can explore the ruins at their own leisure, perhaps during a longer day trip through the Wye Valley's incredible natural landscape. Tintern Abbey is open all year round with modern facilities on site for tourists, making it an easy place to access and enjoy.
Tintern Abbey is adjacent to, and can even be viewed from, the A466. There is a regular bus service to Chepstow.
A recent conservation programme on the abbey's most iconic features should ensure it remains a popular visitor attraction for decades - and even centuries - to come.
