The cottage has been totally renovated during 2009 to a top of the range standard. It gained its five star award plus Walkers and Cyclists awards from the Visit Wales inspector on 19 November 2009. We have since gained the Croeso Cynnes Cymreig ( A Warm Welsh Welcome) award for our hospitality

Originating from the 18th century, Tintern Abbey Cottage is chocolate box cute and has been transformed into a smartly contemporary and deliciously comfortable holiday house in an ancient body. Right across the road from the mighty roofless Abbey, of which it has glorious panoramic views,(now there’s a renovation project!) the photo above shows how amazingly close we are to it! The cottage directly adjoins the Wye Valley Walk, is in the heart of the ancient conservation area of Tintern and yes, there are several pubs a couple of small cafes and three hotels in easy strolling distance -all offering food and several featuring local produce. The village even has a prizewinning vineyard! Also in the village are a craft centre and small shops. There’s a bus stop at the bottom of our drive so you could walk along the wonderful Wye Valley or visit Chepstow Castle or Racecourse and get a bus back .

It sleeps 6 and has three bedrooms with superking ( 6 feet wide) beds which can each become a pair of 3 ft twin beds on request. One of the bedrooms is spacious the others are standard size original cottage rooms and as in the 18thCentury beds were not 6 feet across there is less spare space in the rooms. Two bathrooms with both baths and showers ( lit mirors and shaving sockets, heated towel rails), a whirlpool in one of the bathrooms , a dinnerplate headed shower in the other, cosy woodburner, squishy leather suite, sheltered and fenced garden with furniture, private off road parking. It has all our usual top of the range equipment from 5 flatsceen Tvs with freeview channels including radio, Ipod docks and and Wifi to a fully fitted kitchen with all mod cons ( washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and a super range cooker with extractor hood) A very full inventory including many extras ,and modern basics like double glazing , excellent insulation, and a green central heating system go without saying. All in all it is well up to the 5 star standards- standards our many repeat guests at Foxes Reach and Vanilla have come to trust.
