Sip a sparkling, white or rose, or even try mead in the farm shop tasting room at Parva Farm Vineyard between Tintern and Brockweir. The farm is open year-round and there are guided vineyard tours, or you can explore on your own. Then, head into Tintern itself for coffee and cake at The Filling Station, or cross the river and hike a few miles along Offa’s Dyke to Brockweir & Hewelsfield Village Shop & Café which is a non-profit making community enterprise selling freshly baked bread and local produce and home to a cafe which also hosts exhibitions of local artists works. Drive north to The Ostrich Inn on the edge of the Forest of Dean at Newland to experience a ‘Forester’s Feast’ – a hearty take on a Ploughman’s with three Welsh Cheeses. Retire to ‘UP’ a nearby wooden cabin with to-die-for views where you can take a bath under the stars and make bread over the fire pit.
