Some lovely walks in the hills and woods surrounding the village. Nice little shops to browse and cafes to refresh the weary traveller. Despite the busy road through it, the village retains a restful atmosphere. Look put for some amazing views from the Devil's pulpit in the woods above Tintern.

Sadly, the day took a coach trip to Tintern it was drizzling the whole time we were there. It looked a very nice place with a fair number of cafes. The one we used (see photo) did extremeley good cakes (not that sort!) including as good a Victoria Sponge as I have ever tasted. The Abbey was very interesting, as... More

What a picturesque place Tintern is! We arrived in the rain but it was still a beautiful sight. Took lots of photos and had a quick look at the Abbey. Beautiful and recommend a visit.

The abbey church itself is worth stopping for. It"s a glorious and well conserved ruin that commands a position on a sweeping bend on the River Wye. Like many others it suffered as a result of the Dissolution of the Monastries in the early C16th but still retains an almost palpable air of sanctity and calm.

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 little villgae worth a visit if in the locality. Shops at and around the mill are worth a visit. Pleasant pubs situated in the village and scenery around the village ideal. 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
