“On awarm Autumn afternoon we enjoyed a tasty cream tea for two!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Its location in the beautiful Wye Valley and the friendliness of the staff!.The site had once been used as a railway station ,but has now been developed into a visitors information and tea rooms. The entrace
is narrow so be aware of this as you approach it from main road.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is a stunning village right on the river Wye and surrounded by trees. Tintern Abby is amazing and you can kill a lot of time looking around. Also there are some really lovely places to eat and drink.
