The 2010-2013  Winner of Visit Wales Best Self Catering Place to stay and with walkers and cyclists awards ! Originating from the 18th century, Tintern Abbey Cottage is chocolate box cute and has been transformed into a smartly contemporary and deliciously comfortable holiday house in an ancient body. Right across the road from the mighty roofless Abbey, of which it has glorious panoramic views,the cottage directly adjoins the Wye Valley Walk,looks out onto Offas Dyke . It is  in the heart of the ancient conservation area of Tintern with several pubs a couple of small cafes and two hotels in easy strolling distance -all offering food and several featuring local produce. There is  a bus stop at the bottom of our drive so you could walk along the wonderful Wye Valley , along Offas Dyke  or visit Chepstow Castle or Racecourse and get a bus back .

There are numerous wonderful walks , many waymarked and with explanatory leaflets right from the doorstep. You may not need a car for the whole of your stay.
It sleeps 6 and has three bedrooms with superking ( 6 feet wide) beds which can each become a pair of 3 ft twin beds on request.

Two bathrooms with both baths and showers ( lit mirors and shaving sockets, heated towel rails), a whirlpool in one of the bathrooms , a dinnerplate headed shower in the other, cosy woodburner, squishy leather suite, sheltered and fenced garden with furniture, private off road parking.

It has top of the range equipment from 5 flatsceen Tvs with freeview channels including radio, Ipod docks and and Wifi to a fully fitted kitchen with all mod cons (washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and a super range cooker with extractor hood) A very full inventory including many extras ,and modern basics like double glazing , excellent insulation, and a green central heating system go without saying.

The back garden is fenced and gated to be suitable for pets and children.
The front garden is much larger and is unfenced to make the most of the fabulous views. Children and pets are welcome there -but should be on a lead due to the drop to the drive and to the road. Adults will enjoy sitting watching the Abbey- expecially in the late evenings when it is illuminated and the bustle of the day ends .We have a stone bench for the purpose!

Our off road parking has room for three estate cars or four compact cars very tightly packed.The more usual one or two visiting cars have plenty of space! Parking is at a premium in the village so this is valuable to our guests.


In winter we offer short breaks and whole weeks. In summer its mostly whole weeks. We accept credit cards so paying us is easy. Full details and lots of photos can be found on our website
