Hotels in Tintern
Tintern is an ancient village located in the scenic Wye Valley in Monmouthshire, in south-eastern Wales. The village is close to many historical attractions and some beautiful countryside, a winning combination that makes it a popular tourist destination.
Tintern hotels offer the ideal base from which to explore this uniquely charming village and the surrounding area.
The entire village is designated as a Conservation Area due its high concentration of important historical buildings.
However, the focal point of old Tintern is its 12th-century Cistercian Abbey. Tintern Abbey was built in 1131 and has lain in ruins since the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century.
These ruins are immensely beautiful and have inspired poems by William Wordsworth, Lord Tennyson and Allen Ginsberg. Once you have seen them, you will not find it hard to see why.
The best way to immerse yourself in Tintern's illustrious heritage is by taking a stroll around the village. Start at the Wireworks Bridge, built to carry industrial material to the village's Wireworks, which made wires for telegram cables.
From the bridge, head to the Old Station, which is now a visitor's centre and perfect for a picnic detour. After you've replenished your stores, it is a pleasant half-hour ramble to the old port at Brockweir.
For the keen ramblers among you, Tintern is situated close to many of Britain's most scenic walks. One of the best is the walk to the Devil's Pulpit from the village centre. It involves a steep two-hour climb to a precipice, the aforementioned ‘pulpit', overlooking Tintern.
Another great walk is the 365 Steps and the Wyndcliffe Viewpoint. The 365 Steps can be found from the Wye Valley Walk that runs alongside the river in the village.
One for every day of the year, they take you up to a viewpoint from which you can see stunning views of the Wye as it winds towards the Severn Estuary.
Food and drink
After a journey up the 365 steps and back, you're sure to feel hungry. Luckily Tintern is home to a wealth of excellent restaurants and pubs in which to restore your vigour.
There are not many more pleasant places to have your lunch than the Old Station Tea Room. Situated in the original waiting room of the Old Station, their menu includes delicious homemade cakes as well as light salads and sandwiches.
If you're after something more substantial, and a drink, the Moon and Sixpence, in the middle of Tintern, serves up quality pub food in a cosy and atmospheric environment.
