welcome back to abbey mill

Abbey Mill is an award winning family business that has been trading in Tintern village since 1936. Our well-established and independent craft and shopping complex is currently run by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Rastall family. The Mill is set amidst breathtaking scenery in the heart of the Wye Valley on the banks of the River Wye and offers a relaxed setting for your enjoyment. Include Abbey Mill in your Tour of Wales itinerary, along with its historic buildings and recently renovated turning Old Water Wheel. The site includes many of the original mill buildings of Tintern Abbey, which was founded in 1131. Also see the waterfall and the remains of the Tudor dockyard, which is now filled with trout and watched over by our own dragon!

Lots to see and lots to do!

Come 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 Coffee Shop and Restaurant, which is renowned in the area for both quality and value. If you're looking for an unusual gift or locally made treat, come and see our Summer range at The Mill and Cider Press Shops or pop in and see what's new at the Boat House and The Spirit of the Green Man. You can also browse our new on-line shop at home, with deliveries to your doorstep. If you are planning a wedding or party, take a look at our catering service ideas - everything you love with none of the hassle! Abbey Mill is open from February to December, Wednesday till Sunday, 10.30 am to 5pm. Evening opening for groups are also very welcome by prior arrangement.


Andi Peters and Good Morning Britain

We've been proud to host Andi Peters and the Good Morning Britain crew while they filmed around our beautiful site. We can't wait to see Abbey Mill on 'ITV Good Morning Britain' later in September! Please switch on and share your feedback and Abbey Mill stories on our Contact page and Facebook. Watch this space for more details!


Monmouth Rotary & the Raft Race

The Raft Race is back! Abbey Mill is honoured to work alongside  Monmouth Rotary Club once again, for their 55th Charity Raft Race. The rafts launched from Monmouth at midday on September 5th, and we were on hand to provide everyone with breakfasts to keep them going! The route passes through 6.5 miles of beautiful Wye Valley scenery to the finish line in Whitebrook. Everyone was exhausted and delighted, and celebrated together with our hog roast, lots of live music and a well earned cider! Big thank you for supporting this great cause.

Afternoon Tea Boxes in wicker baskets ready to deliver


There's nothing like Afternoon Tea on the lawn ... or in the conservatory cafe, or under a canvas awning by the sparkling River Wye, or even freshly delivered to your door! Have a look at our menus section to choose from our latest range. A delicious way to while away a sunny afternoon with family and friends.

Awesome little place

A little wonder. Awesome little place, dog friendly, great service. Popped in here as we were driving past and stopped at the little craft shops and then popped in here for some food. Wasn’t expecting much but was super surprised. Dog friendly and a great menu and lots of customers. Had the pie (was huge) as wife had the chowder that was filled with fish. Tripadvisor
