We visited here and walked along the river to the Abbey. It's a pretty village and we will be returning in the summer to fully appreciate the Wye Valley. It was so close to Chepstow where we stayed at The Coach & horses. We loved the mill coffee house and everywhere seemed to be dog friendly including our B&B.

Visit Stella bookshop for good secondhand children's books and the abbey for picturesque beauty, otherwise it is pretty average.

A picturesque village with a few shops but lovely views over the River Wye and along the gorge. Parking is a bit difficult other than down by the Abbey and then it is a short but steep climb back up to the main road.

Tintern is a lovely little village. The striking abbey ruins herald your entry to a small cluster of interesting independent shops and places to eat. The river provides pretty views and a pleasant space for wandering.

Car park is 3 pounds but you get that back if you make a purchase in the store or eat or drink in The Anchor Inn across the way.

The location is magnificent especially on a good sunny summer day. The sheer size of the ruins is incredibly impressive and you can only admire the skill and craftsmanship of the masons and builders and regret the arrogance of those who spoiled it. There is not in truth much here for children and they could soon get bored particularly if... More

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
