I recently moved not far from tintern and visited whilst getting my bearings on the area. What a beautiful place! The abbey is gorgeous despite being half crumbled, lovely river views, nice places to sit in the sun and enjoy the scenery. There are a couple of small pubs and guest houses that look very welcoming and I'll definitely return... More

impressive ruin in a beautiful setting. The site was well laid out, and accessibility for less abled visitors is very good. A bonus is that our dogs are admitted too.

Pleasant river views if you wander along and a wonderful little church down at the rivers edge by the car park. Some super B & B's. Definitely worth... More

I used to live very close to Tintern and drove through the village many times. I would often stop in the Abbey car park and walk down to the river, it's a very calm and tranquil spot, beautiful.

I have travelled the length and breadth of Britain and this is one of the loveliest areas I have been to. Tintern is dominated by the abbey which can be seen close up in all its glory without paying to visit but I am told by my son that a visit adds an extra level if interest and understanding. Around...
