its in such a nice setting and isnt too far from chepstow town, has a nice play ground for young children, have to keep an eye on toddlers though as it has a drop but thats due to the old train track.

Tintern Village Fete. Despite the fear of rain it was a sunny day and fine evening. Another great day out in Tintern. Fun on the Leytons field, lots of stalls, fun for children and for adults. Food and drinks available, a fab magician, great bands all day and evening until midnight in a magical setting. Check out the website -... More

Always head down to Tintern and enjoy an ice cream in the Abby ruins in the summer. Lovely spot and we love the old ruins.

Tintern Abbey was founded by monks in 1131AD.....I remember coming here as a child but recently visited with my partner, what beautiful ruins, the Abbey itself is stunning, there is a charge but well worth it. You go through a gift shop to get to the entrance, a well stocked shop with gifts & prices to suit all ages &... More

We loved the vilage. Visited the Abbey and thanks to goecaching visited the limekilns, the dilapidated St Mary the Virgin with fine views of the Abbey and interesting grave adornments, the lower wireworks site and the old Tintern railway station. We spent all day here. There is so much history in this village. We will be back to explore some... More

Tintern is a lovely place to spend an afternoon taking in the views of the Wye valley and exploring the independent shops. There are also some nice places to eat, I particularly recommend the Anchor. And of course a visit wouldn't be complete without visiting the abbey.

Just a beautiful old ruin which fires your imagination in all sorts of directions. Exceptionally un-rushed and un-hurried, stay for as long or as little as you need. Meditate, draw and paint, eat, sing whatever you feel. The town has a pub/restaurant which was busy on our visit and there was a good tourist shop and some other coffee houses.... More
