“Fabulous Stay at Tintern Abbey Cottage”
Arrived at Cottage to a lovely supply of Cake, Tea, (pint of milk!) and the lovely blackcurrant vodka. Downstairs bedroom, with ensuite was excellent and so helpful to myself who has difficulty with mobility. Bedrooms and bathroom upstairs were spacious, well equipped, withe Television in each room and felt very homely. Cottage is overlooking the Abbey, with wonderful views. We had the best of weather and some lovely walks, with plenty of pubs, restaurants. My dog, who is very spoilt, was quite at home also!! We didnt want to come home, and will definatley be coming back for a longer stay next time!!
“A little patch of heaven”
This cottage is beautiful with stunning views, there are several pubs/hotels within walking distance that do fabulous food. Chepstow is a short drive away to get supplies. If you stay it's worth checking if the races are on. We saw lots of wild birds in the garden and sat out in the garden in the evening listening to Barn Owls and Tawny Owls. Lots to do locally, we visited The Big Pit and Roman Museum (free) Puzzlewood, Symonds Yat and Chepstow Castle. In fact, we loved it so much, we've booked to go next year
“Peaceful, rustic charm with luxury”
Wonderfully situated cottage with views of Tintern abbey. An excellent base to explore the Wye Valley, and the added attraction of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. The cottage itself has everything you would need, and is tastefully decorated. Luxurious and comfortable bedding. Comfy sofas in living room and attractive dining room. Kitchen well equipped though we did have a few problems working out the oven (having accidentally switched it off, which we had been warned not to do, so our fault). The woodburning stove a real focal point and welcomed in the wild February weather! It was a bit of a pain having to remember (in our case write down) a code to open the door instead of having a key, especially in the pouring rain, but I suppose it is easier to manage than keys. My only suggestion would be having a small porch outside that door for weather protection as it is not pleasant punching in numbers to open a door with rain pouring on you. But I am perhaps being a bit picky and overall the experience was excellent, and we would definitely book again. Must also note charming and helpful owners, Malcolm and Fiona.
Response from the owner hello and thank you for taking the time to give us such a positive review. Sorry you got poured on going in and out but unfortunately you stayed with us in the week which broke all records for rain and gales. I think its even correct to say it is supposed to have been the wettest in 250 years- pretty much as long as the ancient cottage has been there! As you know we do provide an umbrella but I doubt it was man enough for those conditions! Glad you coped with the door code- we have this system for the security of our guests. With keys we never know who has them ,who may lose them, who may have copied them With a code its far more secure as its only you that has this weeks code. We think this aspect makes it worth the minor hassle. We are delighted you plan to return and very much look forward to seeing you again!
“Simply breathtaking, a view that's priceless and you won't be di”
We have stayed in this wonderful, cosy and luxurious cottage twice in three months and already want to return. We arrived to find the log burner roaring with the sound of crackling wood, the table laid for dinner and a bottle of complimentary wine ready to pop open. A selection of cakes in the tin to have with a welcoming cup of tea and if you're partial to a tipple, a decanter of home made black currant vodka. All of this and more to make your stay a special one. Fiona and Malcolm really have thought of everything including hot water bottles, a bag for life so there's no need to buy one and lots of homely touches like tea lights... Every bedroom is warm, clean and have wonderful shutter windows but out of the very same windows is the most outstanding view of Tintern abbey. Early morning it's draped with fog and by night lit up in all it's glory, it does make you imagine what life would have been like so many years ago... Also supplied is a variety of maps for those who like to venture out on foot but for us this stay was to relax and so the menu's of local pubs and restaurants and more importantly how to use the whirlpool spa bath was much more inviting. Staying here is a quiet yet very homely sanctuary away from al the hustle and bustle and we can't wait to return. Fantastic!
“Perfect for a family celebration weekend”
A beautifully restored cottage with stylish but comfortable modern furnishings, warm and cosy with both central heating and a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is the best equipped we've ever had in thirty odd years of renting cottages, beds huge and very comfortable, baths and showers very efficient with loads of hot water, high quality towels and bed linen. What made it really special though was the personal welcome by the owner, table beautifully set for dinner, bottle of wine, flowers in every room: so many small details. And the surroundings? Apart from that amazing view of Tintern abbey across the road (no noticeable traffic noise), there is plenty of scope for walks from the door, interesting sites to explore and places to eat without using the car. Our expectations were high - and exceeded.
“Perfect relaxing family weekend in a stunning cottage”
My shoulders dropped the moment we stepped into Tintern abbey Cottage and my little family explored their new home for the weekend. I booked this weekend as a surprise 40th birthday present for my husband and it was just perfect. I was expecting it to be lovely having studied the pictures and reviews online but finishing touches such as freshly cut flowers, home made blackcurrant vodka, logs for the fire, welsh cakes, wine and a personal greeting from Malcolm made us feel instantly at home. Highlights were playing board games in front of the fire, misty early morning walks in our pyjamas, Sunday lunch at the Moon and Sixpence, enjoying a glass of red at The anchor whilst watching our children play, exploring Tintern and the abbey and just generally mooching around the cottage and being together. We had grand plans to explore Chepstow Castle, Monmouth, Puzzle Wood and the Big Pit but we pretty much just stayed put and relaxed. We will be going back to do it all again!!
“Fantastic 5* Cottage - the perfect location for a relaxing famil”
We had a fantastic short break at Tintern abbey Cottage at the end of October. The cottage definitely lives up to it's 5* ratings. The cottage is a real credit to it's owners Fiona & Malcolm, their attention to detail is second to none. The little extras they supplied were well appreciated by us all. It truly is a real home from home and we will definitely be returning in the near future!
Really lovely cottage with literally everything you could need - really good comms from owner - dog friendly - great location - village has good eateries - think this might be a fav of ours and will be going again.
“Magical view and feeling”
We received a personalized welcome, met by the host, complimentary wine and also homemade liquer. The cottage is full of information on the multitude of activities that can be pursued by all ages in all weathers. Home is beautifully restored and the kitchen and baths are high quality. We enjoyed eating at home so much in the evenings with our view of the abbey. Super comfortable beds and the baths were heavenly!
“fantastic cottage, lovely welcome and views”
Just returned from a lovely week at this stunning cottage. As others have said, this is the first time I've been personally welcomed by the owner at holiday accommodation. The cottage was beautifully presented on arrival, with fresh flowers, wine and even the table was laid! The cottage is very well equipped and a lot of thought has gone into making everything perfect. The location is excellent too, right across the road from Tintern abbey and a few steps from a good pub/restaurant, The anchor. The surrounding area is very picturesque. We strolled along by the river through Tintern, and visited the Old Station. We also drove up to the Forest of Dean and Symonds Yat. We went to a few castles nearby, there are so many! There is a wealth of tourist information in the cottage and as there seems to be so much to see and do that we didn't have time for, we have already promised ourselves a return visit in the future. Thoroughly recommended.
