Details

Award winning Abbey Mill is a well-established independent family business and has been trading in Tintern village for the past 60 years. Set amidst breathtaking scenery and situated on the banks of the River Wye in the original mill site of Tintern Abbey, founded in 1131, Abbey Mill offers a relaxed setting for your enjoyment.

Abbey Mill has adapted to the needs and demands of the area over the centuries. Formerly a corn mill and later probably a woollen mill until Abbey and monastic life were suppressed in 1536.

From 1570 mill activites turned to iron-wire works until the early 1800s. Records from 1820 probably reverts the mill back to corn and, at some point, it changed again to a wood turnery, saw mill and builders' store until the mid 1970s. Today Abbey Mill still stands proud for people to enjoy after surviving more than 860 years.

....... in Tintern, in the year 1568, brass was first made by alloying copper with zinc

The site is set beside the River Wye and has the Angiddy Stream (quite a large body of water) running through it. The Angiddy enters the site via a waterfall after running over a rapid and through a tunnel under the road. The hills around Tintern, the old railway bridge now used by walkers to cross the Wye, and all this water make the site both interesting and relaxing

Come and see the waterfall, watch the trout and shop and browse through the 5 distinctively different shops housed in the "Old Mill Buildings". Admire the skill and patience of members of the Wye Valley Craft Association demonstrating their individual crafts for you. Then take a rest from it all in our friendly licensed Coffee Shop and Restaurant (available for private functions) that is renowned in the area for both quality and value.
