2nd November 2019:

Beautiful, light and cosy cottage. Everything you need, excellent instructions for appliances. Worked well for 2 adults, an elderly parent and 2 teenagers. Added bonus of 2 bathrooms and an efficient tumble drier. Wood burner on when we arrived. Met by Martin who couldn’t have been more helpful. I am a asthma/dust allergy sufferer and had no issues here whatsoever. Would definitely stay again.

Tips:

Good priced meals at the Anchor Inn, a minute’s wall across the main road. Hint - bring a torch for walking back over the road!

Lovely cottage. Fantastic location and would come again

Tips:

Forest of Dean, Symons Yat East (beware approach road is very narrow. Hay on Wye for book lovers. Back road from Jhay to Monmouth is awesome, especially a village called Gromont. Also the black and white villages tour from Leominster (take A44 north out of town)

22nd September 2019:

In the visitors book I did write what is meant as constructive (critisiscm?). As a VERY concientous dog owner I do like to clear up daily, particlarly while our labrador retriever was malting. The hoover provided is heavy and hard to manouvre for me as a small person and the broom and dustpan and brush was of very poor quality/old, so unlike everything else in Abbey Cottage. The rear garden could well do with a big tidy up and although the garden is dog safe once gates closed the ones leading from the back are very difficult for closing/securing. Need some TLC or new stronger gates. Very little use can be made of the garden good sized table/chairs as the sun is there for very short period/s, certainly in early September, and are not easily accessible. I'd urge people to read up instructions on the Cooker and Microwave sooner rather than later as can be quite confusing otherwise.

Tips:

The river trip around Symonds Yat is amazing if you catch the season for it (we were there early September). It made the most relaxing day with eating/drinking facilities looking over the river from the banks. The Wild Hare is an amazing Sunday lunch, a bit up on prices around but well worth it for the service and ambience. All the immediate facilities th Abbey Cottage are superb for snacks/lunches/hot & cold drinks. There are local waks for dogs/adults but you do need better mobility to do some of them. We drove to one or two local viewpoints.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay very much. We appreciate that you kept the house in very good order. We were a bit suprised about the comments concening the broom and dustpan as they are both under a year old however we have replaced them! We dont understand what makes the patio furniture difficult to access. The rear terrace is close to the back door and there are no steps to it. It is placed to catch the sun but yes in September there is not reliable sunshine for long hours -though we are glad you had some! Thanks for choosing us- We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back!

So thoughtfully restored, decorated, and planned for your pleasure. I could have just moved in and stayed forever. It was a dream to wake up, grab a coffee and all outside the front door to commune with nature and the Abbey.

Tips:

Take your time to slowly relax and soak up the Wye River Valley. Walk by the river, take tea down by the Abbey. Read a book and watch life in the Valley!

We were so privileged to have a very long stay at the cottage. Fiona and Malcolm were perfect hosts and responded to any queries immediately and provided lots of interesting and helpful information. The cottage was in a perfect central location for us to do daily trips to the World Cup Cricket when required. Everything in the cottage is first class and the location could not be better. A definite recommendation is "stay as long as you can" it is worth it. Thanks Fiona and Malcolm

Tips:

We enjoyed the local shops, beautiful walks close by and great tea rooms in the village. Both Monmouth and Chepstow which are close by have lovely pubs and cafes and lots of interesting history. Chepstow has a good train line to both Cardiff and Bristol to save parking hassles. The Fountain Inn was a good find as was The Lion Inn at Trellech. Usk is a beautiful drive through the lanes and a great pub The Nags Head. Lovely little town as well.

We have spent our first week of four in this beautiful cottage. We feel totally at home and rested. It has everything needed for a comfortable stay. The location could not be better for a peaceful rest with plenty of walks and close to Chepstow and Monmouth for some history and interesting buildings. The train from Chepstow to Cardiff is an easy option for a day of cricket in Cardiff. Overlooking the Abbey from almost every window is a privilege. Looking forward to the remainder of our stay.

Always a 5 star welcome in a 5 star cottage in the beautiful Wye valley right opposite Tintern Abbey. Really cosy welcoming cottage with every amenity one would need for a hiking holiday in this beautiful part of the country... even welcoming for dogs. The cottage is spotless and warm and it just has everything for a perfect stay.

Tips:

The Royal George restaurant is excellent a welcoming. The Fountain inn at Trellech is lovely for Lynch or evening meal with home made and locally sourced products. Also a warm welcome but call to check on opening hours. The Anchor is also friendly with a good choice of menu and plenty of room. Climb Devils Pulpit, Llandogo to Cleddon Falls, Redbrook to The Ostrich walk also known as Catherdral in the Forest walk. And walk from Tintern up Angiddy Stream to The Fountain Inn is beautiful. The walk up to Penterry Farm is also very pretty past the lime kilns.

The cottage was fantastic, very clean, well decorated, with good facilities. It was in a great location, with easy access to the motorway. The fact that dogs were welcome was an added bonus and the garden was secure, so they could have a wander around without disappearing! The little touches were great, dog treats, a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge, not to mention the great fruit cake! For me the most important thing was it was comfortable, and the beds provided a very good nights sleep.

Tips:

Why would you not see Tintern Abbey when it is on your doorstep. Take a walk along the river, it’s beautiful.

Beautiful cottage, definitely lives up to its 5 star rating. Welcome on arrival to show us around and explain facilities was very helpful. Location was perfect, we liked the fact that it was quiet but had some facilities in walking distance. We really appreciated the milk, burning fire and little treats on arrival. Thank you both for a lovely break.

Tips:

Plenty of places to walk from the cottage. Enjoyed a walk up to devils pulpit and along the river. Short drive to Simonnds Yat and Monmouth which is worth a visit. Enjoyed a couple of meals in the anchor pub and enjoyed the bacon rolls and homemade cakes served in the white monk.

Malcolm and Fiona always give us the warmest friendliest if welcomes. They always make sure they give us the latest news on access to the village or activities in the area. Walks and recommendations for pubs. The cottage is fabulous. Nothing is missing and it is just Home from home. This is our seventh year visiting the area. Seeing the village in snow was amazing and we had the perfect time walking in the snow and meeting local people. We love Tintern honey which can be bought on one of the walks up past St Margarets church over to the Angidy River trail, another favourite.

Tips:

Walks in the area are beautiful. The climb up to Devils Pulpit followed by a lovely lunch st The Anchor pub is thoroughly recommended. Redbrook walk called the cathedral in the forest is a favourite too. Angidy trail is magical.

Fantastic location, and very close to being a fantastic house but the kitchen and a few other details let the house down. - Chopping boards should be wood or plastic - Knives need to be sharpened - The hob needs to work on all locations and gas is better - the bread bin is a terrible design - not enough cupboard space - incorrect placement of the oven so right door does. It open. - cooking oil, bin bags, dishwasher tablets, washing tablets and a pepper grinder, should be provided rather than champagne.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are glad you enjoyed most aspects of your stay very much however we are concerned that some members of your party did not locate some of the kitchen facilities provided - though others clearly did as we cleaned the used items. We wish you had contacted us during your stay as these things were so easy to show you. - the chopping boards are plastic but perhaps you did not recognize them as they are unconventional black ones -There is a knife sharpener in the kitchen knife drawer -The large glass hob has five locations. All were working perfectly before your arrival and when we cleaned after you it was clear all five had been used. Sorry we dont know the problem. We prefer gas too but its not available in a rural area -Sorry you dont like the style of the bread bin. Its a from a leading manufacturer! - We cant make the kitchen bigger but there is a unit in the dining room and an understairs and an outdoor cupboard which would have been suitable for your many new year party bottles and cans - we did indeed provide bin bags, 100 dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and salt and pepper shakers (and we did send you ahead of arrival a list of what we would be providing.) The champagne was our New Year gift to you . We thought you would simply love it.

Cottage was fab really cosy, constant hot water and heating and so warm we couldn't make use of the lovely log burner, maybe next time! Very well equipped kitchen lots of crockery glasses etc. Big and very comfortable beds. Excellent wifi throughout the cottage. Fiona and Malcolm very pleasant and efficient hosts who responded quickly from beginning of booking process through to our questions before we came to stay and a couple of minor issues while we were in the cottage. We will hopefully visit again soon and would recommend to others as well. Dog friendly as well so Alfie our border terrier enjoyed his holiday too.

Tips:

The Fountain Inn very good food, lovely staff and dog friendly. A couple of miles from the cottage and a bit remote but well worth a visit. Went for Sunday lunch before getting into the cottage on arrival, so good we went again the next Sunday. Can recommend Sunday roast, lovely fresh well cooked veg, the steaks and fab puddings. The Anchor over the road also good food and dogs allowed in bar where food served. For food etc to eat in we loved The Brockweir community shop, bread, eggs, cheese, veg and much more; Hanley farm shop & cafe and Roser butchers both near Chepstow. Clearwell caves well worth a visit (go on a wet day!) and Taurus Crafts near Lydney watch glass blowing, stone carving and others, various shops and a great cafe. Also on site a garden centre and great krazy golf with extras thrown in, unlimited use on the day, free table tennis and air hockey and more, great value.

Delighted you enjoyed your stay and the extensive walking you managed to do in fab weather! We note your slight anxiety about the two small slopes indoors (which have replaced two nasty steps) and we note that you had no personal difficulty with them so you are just being careful of others. They do meet all the necessary health and safety requirements of building regs and in nearly 9 years we have not had anyone find them problematical, including those with walking frames and sticks.We do advise people to be careful as they are unusual. Hope to see you again before too long!

Malcolm And Fiona always provides de the warmest of welcomes. The cottage is pristine, truly 5 star and the location is amazing. It is the perfect getaway. We have been coming back for six years and always find new walks. We've booked for next year too!

Tips:

The cottage has a plethora of walks and maps but our favourite is Angidy Trail to The Fountain and also walks around Redbrook to the Cathedral in the Forest and a stop at The Ostrich. On a fine day the walk up to Devils Pulpit is a must!

Tintern Abbey cottage is one of the better cottages we have stayed in and we have used many. Its location is second to none, clean, well equiped and in walking distance for restaurants, pubs, cafes and its location offers numerious country walks (no need to drive).

Tips:

We can highly recommend a visit to:- The Anchor pub, Rose and Crown, White Monk Cafe all within a minutes walk of the cottage. Good food, friendly and more so for us dog frendly. The Boat Inn Chepstow also extremely friendly, they will go out of their way to help with any requiremets, also dog friendly. A visit to Raglan Castle is also highly recommended.

The cottage is beautiful and the bedrooms upstairs are so lovely, I could have slept forever!

Tips:

As we had a 12 year old with us, we loved canoeing in the River Wye and cycling the Family Trail in the Dean Forest. We loved our visits to Chepstow and Raglan Castles and Clearwell Caves were most interesting. The general store at Brockweir is excellent and for those with children, they love it as it has a wonderful playground for while you shop.

We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and enjoyed reading your hugely positive comments in the visitors book . We are sorry that there was some confusion about access to the front garden. We were away when you were staying and wish you had contacted our caretaker about your inability to go out front! There are three ways to get to the front garden. You can go out of the front door. It is not usually locked but the key hangs in the kitchen clearly labelled for your use . Alternatively from the back door you can go through unlocked gates at both sides of the house into the front garden where a bench is provided on the upper terrace! So sorry you did not realize this!

The cottage has an unbeatable location in a famous village at the centre of a wide range of attractions and activities - and we received a warm and helpful welcome from the owner.

Tips:

The Fountain Inn, the owners' favourite local hostelry, lived up to their recommendation, being full of character and offering excellent food. Be warned: the portions are huge. Having the Anchor Inn with good beer and food on the doorstep was most convenient. We were visiting family in the area but found time for hill and river walks, Goodrich Castle and canoeing on the Wye. Our visit coincided with the Raft Race and Sung Vespers in the Abbey, both memorable and contrasting events on the same Sunday.

It was so good to be met personally by the owner on arrival and to be shown around. The dining room table was beautifully set and we all enjoyed our meal later on that evening feeling as if we were in a rather nice restaurant! The cottage was easy to live in and we felt very much at home there. This was especially important as the weather was not particularly good that week and therefore we were indoors more than we had expected to be.

Tips:

We had a very good day in Tintern itself visiting the abbey and having a light lunch at the mill before the rain arrived again!

Tintern Abbey Cottage is a lovely cottage with all the facilities you would expect and in a beautiful location. It is filled with character and was extremely clean. It was great to be able to take our 2 dogs as it's difficult to find places that will accommodate us sometimes.

Tips:

Tintern is a lovely little place with pubs, cafes and restaurants. There's no local shop so make sure you've got the essentials as it's a bit of a drive. St Fagans is a must and Dyffryn Gardens were lovely. Wyndecliffe Sculpture Gardens is also worth a visit and just down the road.

A very warm, friendly welcome to a beautiful house in a stunning location. A bottle of wine and Welsh cakes for the humans and a bowl of water and crunchy biscuit for the dog on arrival was much appreciated and the fact that trouble had been taken to have the log burner going was just another personal touch. The cottage itself has been lovingly restored and the book of photographs documenting its restoration was fascinating. Everything in the cottage is of high quality and it's hard to think of anything that it lacked. In fact the only thing wanting was time to enjoy and visit all the activities and places covered in the extensive literature provided as we were only there for a short break. We would happily come back for a longer stay.

Tips:

The Anchor next door to the Abbey has great food in huge proportions and is understandably very popular. The Abbey Mill shops are very interesting but be prepared to play ball with the three collies who are always up for a game! The Parva vineyard is definitely worth a visit (the road up to it is a bit ramshackle so you might have second thoughts about it but the wine is certainly not second rate!) Unfortunately we were a bit limited on the walking front due to one of our party having sprained their ankle before we arrived but there is some great walking to be had. There's a particularly fine view if you go up to the Eagles Nest (you can either drag yourself up the 365 steps from Lower Wyndcliff or you can cheat and drive along to Upper Wyndcliff and walk from there. A very pretty walk amongst the bluebells and (I think!) wood anemonies.

We give 4 for cleanliness as the grill pan was very greasy and when in use caused the smoke alarm to react. Some of the roasting tins were in the same condition. The cottage garden is very secure for dogs and we had no worries about them getting on to the road. Our 15 month granddaughter was well provided for with high chair, travelcot and fire guard around the wood burner. The cottage is well worth a visit.

Tips:

The cottage is in an excellent position with wonderful views of the abbey. The Anchor Inn is within easy walking distance and we used it for a lunch and a dinner which were both very good value. There are many lovely and historical walks in the area. We had an enjoyable trip to Monmouth which, with its many small shops and eating establishments, kept us happy in the rain. Raglan Castle is well worth a visit. 3 full days was really too short to give the area justice.

Very glad you were able to enjoy some of the printed walks we showed you on arrival, and that the pubs we suggested in Tintern and Monmouth, as well as Raglan Castle, were excellent . There is indeed masses to do . I am so sorry the grill pan was not up to speed. I do the cleaning myself and these things do all go through the dishwasher every time but nevertheless I must take full responsibility for missing a beat. I do wish you had mentioned it whilst you were with us as I would gladly have rectified. I guess the plus is that the smoke alarms are proven to work very well! Apologies. We hope this was a small aspect of an otherwise wonderful weekend for your family reunion and look forward to welcoming you all again before too long. Kind regards

Tintern provides an excellent base for those wishing to explore town and countryside within an accessible hour's journey: Newport, Cardiff, Chepstow,Monmouth, Usk, Abergavenny all have their unique points. It should be noted that for guests visiting during January, several local pubs and restaurants are closed in Tintern.

We were glad that you were able to make good use of the eating out list we supply so you could book ahead and so establish who would be open when and thus avoid any disappointments and we are really glad to have heard that you had some memorable meals .

Amazing well proportioned cottage in a lovely area, welcome was above & beyond the norm, and so many finer details met.We have stayed in many self-catering properties over many years & Tintern Abbey Cottage is way out in front, would highly recommend.

Tips:

Lots of amazing walks for both the casual walker as well as the more proficient, we thoroughly enjoyed Devils Pulpit & Symonds Yat where we saw fantastic views amid lovely Autumn colours. We also had a lovely long walk through beautiful woods to Cleddon Falls, sadly because it had been so dry (which was nice in other ways)the falls were rather dry, but still a lovely easy & picturesque walk. Food at The Fountain was certainly a meal to remember, cosy, warm and very relaxed atmosphere, the food was outstanding.
