Tintern is set at the southern end of the Wye Valley, on the A466 between Monmouth and Chepstow. Surrounded by steep wooded hillsides, alongside the winding River Wye.

The village stretches for approximately 1 mile, from the imposing Tintern Abbey, in the south, to the secluded Tintern Old Station, in the north.

Tintern is ideally situated for lovers of the countryside, with many footpaths, cycle routes and bridle paths in this “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

Offa’s Dyke is less than a mile away, the Wye Valley Path passes our front gate, and there are numerous local routes to follow.

Cycle paths abound, with cycle hire centres in the Forest of Dean. (we have secure, overnight, lock-up facilities if required) Fishing is available throughout the Wye Valley.

Railway enthusiasts should visit the attractions in the Forest of Dean, at Lydney, and of course Tintern Old Station.

The Major towns and cities, Cardiff, Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, Chepstow, Monmouth and Hereford, to name just a few, are all within an hours drive time for a bit of retail therapy.



Parva Farmhouse Riverside Guesthouse is a 17th Century former farmhouse idyllically set just 50 yards from the banks of the River Wye (in the picturesque Wye Valley), next to the medieval Church of St. Michael’s and less than a mile from the historic Tintern Abbey.

This small, friendly guesthouse, owned and run by your hosts, Peter & Angela Vrettos, oozes “Olde Worlde” character and comfort in a relaxed and informal atmosphere where you can switch off and put the pressures of your daily routines on hold while you enjoy our unintrusive hospitality and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

We are situated on the Wye Valley Path, which passes through the churchyard next door and along the riverbank. Enjoy a relaxing walk or exercise your dog before or after a hearty homemade meal in our Inglenook Restaurant.

Beautiful warm summer evenings can be enjoyed with a cooling drink on the south facing terrace area, or take a glass or two and sit on the riverbank to watch the swans, ducks and occasional kingfishers feeding in the river.
