    Default The Abbey Hotel, Tintern - July 2020


    History; (Shamelessly stolen from Glymo, sorry mate!)

    For well over a century the site traded as the 'Beaufort Arms Hotel' (first recorded officially in 1835) and for a time, the pubs landlord was also the guide and keyholder for the abbey. There is a relatively interesting recent history for the building, which underwent a full refurbishment in 2002, at the same time it was renamed. The owners at the time were the victims of a fraud which cost them their business and home. More can be found by following the link below for anyone who is interested.

    Following this, the site was operated by new owners until it was sold by administrators in 2009. It continued to trade until late 2012 when it was closed, and an application placed to redevelop for residential use. These plans were approved by a planning committee in 2014 but it appears that not much has happened since then. (Probably due to the family of bats currently using the place rent free!)

    A lovely little mooch, with very little to report really, except for this (not so) little fella giving us a heart attack as he swiftly left the bar area just as we entered it;

    The inside of the place is a lot worse for wear than the outside;



    With some rooms having completely succumbed to natures reclaim;



































    All the best guys x

    Nature has intruded so quickly it makes me wonder about the structural integrity of the building when it ceased trading.

    That one is in a bit of a mess.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    When I was in Tintern on September I they have tried to tidy it up a bit by painting a mural on the hoarding facing teh main road entitled "The Marian Way"

    It is the first phase of a Words and Landscape project and development of a Pilgrimage route, proposed for 2021 by Friends of Our Lady of Tintern.

    The circular path, which will begin at this point, will be mapped onto parts of a mediaeval Pilgrimage route to and from Tintern Abbey, taking modern day walkers along the arduous Stony Way - the path of sorrows - to Penterry Church, St. Arvans, for rest and contemplation before returning to Tintern Abbey and the statue of our Lady through luscious forested landscape - the path of joys.
