The Parva Farmhouse is a splendid, top-class B&B in the gorgeous Wye Valley just yards from the river (you don't even have to cross a road to get to the riverbank). Located in Tintern Parva it is at the quieter, less touristy end of the village, but only an easy 15 minute walk from the Abbey. Excellent picturesque location. There are lots of fantastic walking opportunitines, and the Chepstow - Monmouth bus stops practically outside (2-hourly service). There are several pubs/restaurants nearby, including the Wye Valley Hotel (opposite), the Moon and Sixpence (a three-minute walk) and the excellent Brockweir Inn (15-minute walk).

The room was comfortable, nicely furnished, well maintaned and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was spotless too (always difficult in old buildings like this), and the memory-foam bed was a joy to sleep in. My 1st floor room (no. 5) had a lovely view over the River Wye. The hosts are very friendly, welcoming and helpful, but without being intrusive. There is a very nice residents' lounge with big leather chairs and sofas, a well-stocked honesty bar, and lots of useful local reading material (tip: they have a copy of the official guide to Tintern Abbey, which I recommend reading before you visit). The B&B also operates as a small a la carte restaurant in the evenings, serving excellent home-cooked food in the intimate inglenook dining room. I ate here on my first night and certainly recommend it. The cooked breakfast was excellent too.

My only niggle was that there is no WiFi, although the rooms do have wired broadband access ports.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 5 on the first floor, which has a lovely view over the River Wye.

A very pleasant location but a rather dated guesthouse and atmosphere. We stayed in a room at the top of the house but unfortunately the shower pressure could not reach that high and resulted in a dribble from the shower head that was in a rather unpleasant peach coloured very dated bathroom.
We stayed for the evening meal (I wish we hadn't) along with other guests but do not eat here if you prefer fresh ingredients, there are none included in this restaurant, tinned veg, packet meals and eaten with the microwave pinging in the kitchen at various intervals.

We stayed at Parva Farmhouse with a group of friends (took the place over actually which meant we didn't disturb anyone else !). There was nothing I could find fault with. We stayed in room 5 and the shower was plenty hot enough and enough pressure. The place is spotless, the food was excellent and the breakfast was equally good providing plenty of choice. The hosts Peter and Angela were friendly, down to earth and welcoming. I must mention Frodo the dog who adds that little extra touch of 'home from home'. The decor isn't modern but it is in keeping with the property and overall the facilities are exactly what you would want from a B&B. TV in our room and Tea and Coffee tray with big mugs rather than silly little cups you can hardly get anything in. Location is great and views from some of the rooms are stunning. Great location to go walking from and the hosts can provide extra local knowledge. Several pubs and hotels in the area serving lunches. We'll definitely return.

This farmhouse is in a cluster of small buildings along the main road which follows the bend in the river. It is a traditional farmhouse with a reasonable amount of character and we stayed in an upstairs room with a dormer window overlooking the river (with the carpark and boat ramp in the foreground, and the English countryside across the river). There is a private off street carpark by the riverside. The room was, as expected, not large, and the eccentric Welsh plumbing was again prominent in the shower which produced a minimal flow of water.
The farmhouse serves dinner in a dining room, and there is a self service honesty bar in the cosy lounge, from which guests are summoned for their meal. Dinner is agreeable but one problem I had was with the music - forgive me proprietors but I found it rather tacky and as such it needed to be much softer, or even better, replaced with something more appealing.
The farmhouse is not within sight of Tintern Abbey and takes a good twenty minutes walk to get there - a pleasant enough walk along the river if the the weather and one's legs are good. The Abbey itself is of course to die for.

My husband & I stayed here for 1 night, primarily to have easy access for a visit to Tintern Abbey. Our room was of a reasonable size with a spacious bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, which could have done with better pressure. The floorboards in the bedroom squeaked which was a little annoying. We had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner in the restaurant, sharing a chicken pate for entrée and then both of us having a vegetarian main course. Both meals were very good and we finished the night sharing the trio of tartlets (lemon, chocolate and apple) served with ice cream. Breakfast the next morning was just as good as dinner, with a good selection of cereals and juice followed by a hot breakfast cooked to order. In the afternoon we walked to the abbey, an easy 15-minutes along the road and the following morning we also took a very pleasant walk along the river. Despite our room not being perfect, I would still recommended staying at Parva Farmhouse.
