Tips: Go and see Chepstow Castle. Puzzle Wood is good, as is the steam railway at the Big Pit.Family from Glasgow - 22nd August 2017
A very relaxed family break with our 2 sons (17 and 20) and dog. The games room at the property provides a nice option if raining or to break up the walking/culture for the younger participants!
Recommendations: Caldicot Castle, Offa's Dyke walk (Devils Pulpit route and also other way from Tintern Old Station), Tintern, Usk. Tredegar Arms in Shirenewton - great pub/restaurant, we had two lovely meals there including lunch on Sunday.Family from UK - 16th August 2017
We had a lovely stay in this farm. Silence and nature were the protagonists. Then the game room, hot tub and fresh eggs were a PLUS.
