Discover some of the history of the Forest of Dean by visiting the stunning Tintern Abbey, drop in for lunch at The Anchor or The Royal George in Tintern itself and finish off a leisurely day of culture vultering with a visit to Taurus Crafts on your way back to the luxury of Penhein.
Start your day of culture with a visit to Tintern Abbey, one of the most magnificent sights in the area. The appeal of this exceptional Cistercian abbey remains as enduring as ever, with its outstandingly beautiful stone skeleton and rich and long history. If only the walls could talk! The chants of countless monks echo through the masonry here.
You can stop for lunch only a stone’s throw away from the Abbey at the newly refurbished The Anchor Inn or The Royal George Hotel. Alternatively you can travel further afield and have a light lunch at the Taurus Cafe.
Spend the afternoon looking around Taurus Crafts. This quirky arts and crafts centre is a thriving centre of creativity. As a home to 14 artisan businesses, a Gift Shop full of original & local craft products, and a Café that serves delicious food & hosts regular art exhibitions this is a lovely place to finish a day. They are also staffed by a mixed ability team, providing work placements & supported employment to people with learning disabilities.
