What a lovely place, stunning views of the Abbey. Arrived around 16.00 on a Sunday was quite busy. Wasn't sure where we could park, we asked in both the Abbey shop and Anchor Inn, lady in shop advised us not to park on Abbey car park so we parked on the pub car park. A couple of other Van's arrived after the shop shut and parked on the Abbey car park.Paid £3 but redeemed it against a meal in the pub. I had fish and chips which was ok but not the best, my wife had chick pea curry which she enjoyed. Overall great place

Puzzled at first as car park said no motorhomes beyond this point but the lady in the cafe said it was fine. We got the £3 back at the abbey but only stayed to visit, not to stay. The same lady asked if we wanted to stay overnight. It got very busy by lunchtime and would have been harder to park. A very useful place for visiting the abbey.

Just returned from a night on the abbey carpark. Nice and quiet. Did get busy during the day but was on a bank holiday weekend. Arrived at 11am and there were plenty of spaces on top carpark but filled up throughout the day. More spaces became available around 5-6 as day visitor's left.There is a grass overflow carpark next to the pub with loads of room. Public toilets open from 8-8. Redeemed carpark money back when visiting abbey. Does state no overnight parking on signage however asked in pub said fine to stop. Stayed with around 6 other motohomes. There was a couple of motorhomes in the overflow back of the pub but looked tight entrance if you had long motorhome.

Great overnight spot, and plenty to do during the day, so we ended up staying nearly 24 hours.
Signs clearly say “no overnight parking”, but lady in pub told us to ignore, and the car park is shared between pub and Tintern Abbey. No charge 6pm - 8am, but we paid £3 for arrival day and again the next morning, and redeemed both tickets against purchases in the pub and the Abbey gift shop. (Cider, chocolate and Welsh cakes, things we’d have had anyway)
Overnight we stayed in the area marked “no motorhomes or campers”, as encouraged by pub, but we moved in the morning to the area by gift shop and walked dogs over the bridge and up to Devil’s Pulpit. Lovely place, will use again.

Another great stay at the Anchor. The pub is always very accommodating, friendly and welcoming to our children and dogs. Great walks along the water and new park in the pub grounds for the kids.

Fabulous stop over opposite the Abbey. Quiet and peaceful overnight. £3 which you can get back from pub or Abbey gift shop. The Anchor pub is very welcoming with lovely food and great service. Toilet block immaculate, not sure of open all niggt but open by 9am. Lovely walks through woods to next village where there is a nice pub. Also to Devils pulpit. Definitely recommend. Wont be long before we return.

Lovely spot right by the abbey. We arrived and had a beautiful walk up to the Devils Pulpit with our Jessie dog who loved running through the woods. Told motorhomes only allowed to park in the overflow carpark now (nearest the abbey) as someone has just knocked down their stone wall. £3 per night but redeemable in the restaurant. Lovely staff and building but food rather basic (definitely didn’t taste home made). Please note that the main road from Monmouth is closed at the
moment and you have to take the more narrow lanes. We were just ok in our 6.2 m Bessacarr but take care on the bends.

Lovely place to park for the night. We asked at the bar if it was ok to stay because it did say ‘no overnight parking’ but were told to ignore the signs. Had a lovely meal with probably the best chip we have ever had. There were about 4 other vans in the car park and it was very quiet. There were lovely walks along the river right from the car park. Would definitely go again.

Nice one night stay, quiet and safe, a few other campervans also stopped there. Nice meal in the pub and a few walks around, toilets nearby open from early hours (although up steps, which might not suit everyone), would stay again :)

Lovely place, scenery is amazing. We arrived after 6 pm to find the parking machines don’t work after 6, so made it clear to the pub that we were on their “ no Motorhomes” parking area and they were more than ok with this. I get the feeling they would be stricter in high season but no complaints. Pub food was very god.

We stay here a lot. One of our favourite local (ish) stopovers. Great food, beer, view, atmosphere in the Wye Valley. Not to mention all of the local walking/rock climbing/biking.

Our tip, turn up late in the day to miss the "rush hour" in Spring and Summer.

Never see any more than 2/3 motorhomes, if any to be honest.

Stayed in the car park last night after reading the reviews on here. It was as everyone said, really quiet, hassle free experience. Parked up , went to the pub and reimbursed our £3 parking on food which was pretty good. Sat in the beer garden and another family turned up and asked if it was ok to park their campervan O/N and the pub were fine with it despite signs saying no O/N camping. So although a bit nervous as we have young kids and haven’t done wild camping it was spot on :-)

Great spot with view of abbey. Paid £3 but got it back on food/drinks. Coq au vin on special for a £10er was brilliant. Lovely village, shops and of course the abbey. Public toilet was open until 8pm on this night

Plenty of parking, free after 6pm but gets really busy during the day,we stayed early October sun was out the place was very busy! Good atmosphere in pub/ cafe. We redeemed our £3parking charge in pub but food was not value for money, we had Sunday roast and were disappointed at the lack of vegetables, quite
important when you're vegeterian...ice cream parlour opposite was nice. Be prepared to be woken up by dog walkers and coach loads of people. Nice spot though,lovely walks and a good day out

Awesome spot!!! The later you arrive, the better, as it's a busy tourist spot. Plenty of level parking once everyone leaves. The abbey looks breathtaking when lit up at night opposite the car park. The Anchor serves a variety of absolutely delicious food, prices are fair. Would stay again 100%

We stayed here 2 nights and ate in the pub both nights. It's a fantastic location as everyone has said. Had 2 lovely walks, one along the disused railway then up onto Offas dike along to the Devils pulpit where there is an amazing view of the Abbey.
I should think the car park gets really busy in the summer. The pub advised us to stay in the car park in front of the pub and not the actual Abbey car park.

Perfect stopover location - plenty of flat parking spaces to choose from in choice of 3 carparks. Several other campervans so in good company! Good dog walking options in the immediate vicinity. Enjoyed our meal in the pub ( sat in bar area so we could have the dogs with us), and thought excellent value. Such friendly helpful staff. Peaceful nights sleep with no noise from the fairly close by main road. Will definitely be visiting again.

A very good motorhome stop which we stayed at on a Sunday night over the bank holiday. Useful to know that the Anchor stops serving food at 6pm on a Sunday. There was plenty of room available on the grassed area on the left side of the access road opposite the Abbey. There are some very scenic walks from here which gives some great views across the Wye Valley, some can be quite strenuous but well worth the effort. There is a parking charge of £3 between 8.00am and 6pm which can be refunded against purchases in the Anchor or the gift shop - brilliant value!!

Other reviewers seemed to have said it all. Delightful historic pub - good beer but not the cheapest pint around and a good and varied food menu (allergy friendly). Nice flat car park busy during the day but almost empty in the evening which makes arriving around teatime best option and you have a good parking spot to leave the van next day (£3 for whole day which is refundable in the pub or cafe). Buses between Monmouth and Chepstow run hourly and stop nearby - half fare with english bus pass unless you are travelling from Wales to England or vice versa - we paid one way but not the other. The car parks say "no overnight parking" but this is tolerated as long as you make sure to patronise the pub. There are no nasty clauses about parking wholely inside the bays/white lines or paying for 2 bays :-). It would be awful to loose this overnight stop so my request is please don't abuse it.

Stayed on the grass area. Beautiful spot by the Abbey. Paid £3 which was taken off the bill in the pub but it can also be taken off your bill in the tea rooms. Public toilets are open to use. Probably wouldn't want or be able to stay overnight in the summer or would have to arrive when the car park is empty. Lovely walk by the river and the village.

Cracking spot to stay for a night or two, quite busy in the day (Even for Nov) but at night its perfectly quiet. Cafe, Pub and things to see. Parking is £3 but get the money back in the Pub.....Lots of signs saying no over night parking but Pub (who own the Carpark) say ignore. Public toilets are open all night. Wifi is a bit hit and miss (on 3)

We've stayed here twice, very friendly welcome and excellent food & beer. Free parking (fee refunded with purchase at the inn) in the adjacent car park. Right on the doorstep of Tintern Abbey ruins, a fascinating place to visit. Scenic walks a-plenty. Can get very busy during the day in the summer, but shouldn't have trouble finding parking overnight.
Public toilets nearby open 24hrs.

We rang the Anchor public house beforehand and made sure it was ok to stay overnight on the carpark. We booked a table in the restaurant and quite honestly its one of the best meals we have had for a long time. Excellent food and terrific value for money.

Not an official motorhome stopover but overnighting is tolerated if using the local facilities. Parking is in the pay and display car park that is shared between Tintern Abbey and the Anchor Inn and overlooks the River Wye. The charge is £3 from 08:00 to 18:00 but this is refunded against any purchase at either the Anchor Inn or the Visitors centre. There is a public toilet block adjacent to the car park that is also open during the day. 
We arrived near 7pm on Friday evening and the car park was virtually empty part from one other MH and a few cars. As there were no signs of the car park becoming busy we parked in two bays. We went for an evening meal at the Anchor and asked if it was ok to stop over night and they assured us it was fine as were using the facilities. Meal was lovely and reasonably priced. Night time was really quiet with no road noise. In the morning we moved the van to one of the few spots suitable for larger MH's where you can park and still occupy one bay. 
There are some great walks from Tintern and the views are fantastic of the valley and Abbey ruins.
There is limited GPRS mobile, but free Wifi is available in the Anchor Inn. There are also a few BT with FON spots but unfortunately we were unable to connect to any of these even using the wifi booster.
