About the property

This unique country cottage of considerable character and charm has been sympathetically updated and improved and is located on the outskirts of the village of Caerwent, which is situated approximately 5 miles west of Chepstow and 11 miles east of Newport. It was founded by the Romans as the market town of Venta Silurum, an important settlement of the Brythonic Silures tribe. The modern village is built around the ruins, which are some of the best preserved in Europe, and benefits from a country pub and post office/village store Junior and senior schools locally are situated in Undy, Magor, Caldicot and Chepstow the latter two providing shops, pubs, restaurants, leisure centres, bus, road and rail links. The castles of Caldicot and Chepstow add more historical interest as does the Cistercian Abbey in Tintern all three of which hold a variety of outdoor entertainment during the summer months and carol services at Christmas. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of opportunities for those who enjoy walking, hiking, cycling, riding and climbing. The cottage itself sits in its own large gardens with magnificent views overlooking meadowland towards Wentwood Forest offering a semi rural location and yet within walking distance of the local amenities and village life and also with easy access to A48/M4; Bristol and Cardiff. The Vendors were looking for privacy and a more rural lifestyle yet still be within walking distance of village amenities (including a pub) and lovely local walks through the glorious countryside.
