Liked best: The upstairs bedrooms were perfect, the bathroom was great too, garden and view to the Abbey was delightful.
Liked least: Not having an undercover area to leave wet and muddy shoes near the kitchen entrance door but could work around this.

We stayed in Tintern Abbey Cottage for a weekend in March 2016, and walked the bottom part of Offa's Dyke trail. The cottage itself is perfect: there is an attention to detail that makes everything easy and makes you feel welcome. Everything you might need is there for cooking, eating, relaxing, drinking, and enjoying the wonderful setting. The gardens are lovely, and the view from the front simply cannot be beat.

Having lived in Chepstow 11 years ago and not been in the area since, it was great to go back and visit old haunts.
Abbey Cottage is beautiful and an excellent location . .. we loved our stay. Everything about Abbey Cottage is 5 star and I couldnt fault it.
The Wye Valley area has so much to offer and a great place to stay for families of all ages
Would definately recommend it and will go back.

This was our second visit to Abbey Cottage, we still found different places to visit in the area and enjoyed more walking. The cottage is beautifully decorated and well equipped and is a fantastic base. There are several lovely restaurants within walking distance each one supplying a warm welcome and heavenly food. I would highly recommend a stay at Abbey Cottage, you won't be disappointed

“Perfect”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is an astounding property in a wonderful location, well equipped, comfortable and very clean. We had traffic problems on the way down so unfortunately did'nt get to meet Fiona. There is lots to do around the area and nice places to eat. My wife and I are big hikers and we were not dissapointed. Places I would recommend would be the brewery, the old train station (for breakfast) and the vinyard. We would certainly stay here again.

“Fabulous view, great cottage, a little too many rules....”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We have family links here that go back a couple of hundred years, so we know how beautiful the setting is, having spent many holidays here. This was a reunion of sorts, and we took my Mum and in laws, so I wanted the place we stayed to be faultless. And this was. Beautifully clean, great facilities, comfortable beds and a fabulous welcome. The ONLY thing that let it down was the copious rules everywhere, and lots of laminate reminders and 'do not' lists. I am sure many guests abuse and take no care, but I am a 5 star customer and an adult and I know how to behave. The work to keep the cottage at the standard it is should be the owners burden, not the guests. And If you welcome dogs then you have to accept they will pee on the lawn and the bushes, they are dogs!

Absolutely delighted that you found the cottage luxurious, clean and our welcome excellent. We do try very hard to please , we are glad your reunion went well and we thank you for the neat manner in which you left everything.
We are a bit perplexed about the "rules". We do have several laminated sheets which provide guidance on practical things like how to work the TV, access the internet, use the woodburner and so on which make life easy, especially for the many overseas guests we welcome, - and also a whole selection of them which are walks people can borrow and which will not dissolve on a wet day.
We only have one which is "rules". You are absolutely correct that this is about pet behaviour . We love dogs having owned bred and shown many, and we welcome nicely mannered pets to all three of our cottages most weeks without problems - but unfortunately we have learned the hard way that there are a few ( yes we agree its thankfully just a very few) guests who do allow their dogs to trash the garden. We really dont like having any rules at all but this type of damage ( which has ranged from seriously burned lawns and plants , to uprooted shrubs and huge holes dug in the lawns , poo bags left hanging from the trees and an entirely smashed lavender hedge ) is nearly impossible to put right quickly and we do have to consider the incoming people who must find everything looking great. We are sorry you took exception to this sheet , and we can see your party and well managed pets didnt need it - but unfortunately some few people do need reminding to take care. Please come again, the sheet will still be there but we know you will still have a wonderful stay.
