Cottage was cosy and comfortable and had everything you need for a relaxing holiday, ideal to watch the wildlife from your windows or from the garden or plenty of walks around ,then take a 5 minute stroll down into tintern for a meal or visit the many attractions including the famous tintern abbey. Enjoyed the fish and chip van that visits the wirework carpark weekly which was a small walk from the cottage. The local bus route through tintern visits chepstow and monmouth. There is a lovely walk to brockweir through the trees but take care it gets muddy and you need to be fairly fit as it is mostly inclined. Would definitely return.

About the location
Chepstow 6 miles; Monmouth 11 miles.
The renowned, picturesque village of Tintern nestles peacefully beside the River Wye, at the heart of the beautiful Wye Valley, between the lovely market towns of Chepstow and Monmouth. Tintern is famous for its magnificent, 12th century Abbey, with its romantic, arched remains highly regarded as one of the finest relics of Britain's Monastic age. The village also provides an array of excellent pubs and shops as well as an award-winning vineyard offering tours and tasting! The stunning countryside of the nearby Forest of Dean (with the famous Puzzlewood only 8.5 miles away) and Offa's Dyke provide excellent walking, cycling, fishing and nature watching opportunities. Also close by is the National Diving and Activity Centre, where they run diving courses, as well as having a 700 metre zip wire. Visit the historic walled town of Chepstow with its impressive Norman Castle and the celebrated Chepstow Racecourse, whilst the pretty market town of Monmouth, with its stunning stone-gated bridge, is within a short drive. Hay-on-Wye, with the annual Hay Festival is just over an hour's drive and Cheltenham Racecourse is also just over an hour away. An ideal location for a varied and enjoyable holiday, at any time of the year.
