Parva is a 400 year old farmhouse that has been beautifully converted into a Guesthouse. it is by the river and within sight of the magnificent ruins of Tintern Abbey, made famous by William Wordsworth's poem "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey". It is within easy reach of Cardiff - we were there the other day as we... More

Kooky, trinket filled, lovely old B&B. Spotlessly clean with traditional farmhouse decor. Wonderful location, close to good pubs and places to eat. Great breakfast and we loved the cosy lounge with honesty bar where we had a few drinks after our evening meal. We requested a room overlooking the river and the view was beautiful. Their website does not really... More

My companion and I spent 2 nights here to explore Tintern and to run the Offa's 'Orror trail race in Chepstow (Offa's Dyke). It's nestled in a lovely area, down the road from Tintern Abbey. The Inn itself was old fashioned in a charming way - I can't remember the last time I used an actual key to open my... More

Absolutely nothing wrong with this guest house but it's very average. Breakfast was nice, location ok but not a lot in tintern and there are far prettier places to stay in the Forest of Dean. Rooms quite small but comfy.

What a setting! The large natural stone buiilding is along side a quaint community church, a river wharf used long ago... with a view into the valley's River Wye, Tintern Abbey and village. The rooms are warm and cozy with angular walls, steps and wooden latched doors. The shower is heated as needed, so there is always hot water. The... More

I normally stay in hotels and not guesthouses so i have kept my expectations lower, however the bed was one of the most comfortable i have slept in for a long while. The room and the rest of the guest house was very clean with a homely decor arrangement. I was at the front of the property so had the... More

The owner, Peter, obligingly accommodated my request for a room with a view of the river. The location is wonderful - easy to reach, not isolated, but in a delightfully rural, picturesque, forested area, with quick access to walks, facilities, and sites of historic interest, but also conducive to just enjoying the views and taking short local walks. The guesthouse... More

We found the Parva Farmhouse Guesthouse a pleasant place to stay, after a long drive from Devon. Our room (room 1) was at the top of the house, was very comfortable and clean, shower was a bit tricky to get to work though, there were beautiful views from our window across the River Wye and surrounding countryside. The breakfast menu... More

We booked this hotel via booking.com only to then be emailed by the owner informing us that children were not welcome. Something that was not clearly explained on booking.com or their own personal website. We didn't even realise you were allowed to refuse children.....but apparently so. What is even more amusing is that they accept dogs!

This is a lovely place and the rooms were very comfortable . Breakfast was hearty. but we felt that the owners they were not very friendly towards us despite our attempts at chat. She seemed to be lovely at one moment and then unfriendly at another. We got told off because we had snacked on some cheese that my partner... More
