Located in the Wye Valley, around 5 miles from Hidden Valley Yurts, Tintern Abbey was founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks. Visitors can explore the stunning ruins. Tintern village has a few shops and cafes, hillside cottages and a small church close to the Abbey. The River Wye runs past the abbey and there is easy access to well marked walking and hiking trails. The Anchor pub and restaurant is one of the best in the area.
