THIS fairytale property is just as charming on the inside as it is on the exterior.

Tintern Old Rectory dates partially back to the 17th century; it is being marketed by Powells, Monmouth and is listed on Rightmove.

The black and white property – which was previously used as a bed and breakfast – is like something out of a storybook and boasts many period features, including:

  • High ceilings;
  • Stained glass windows;
  • Fireplaces;
  • Picture rails.
