  • "The house was perfect, the kitchen had everything we could need and the games were both adult and children friendly."

    DVDs were really good too. Garden was also well kept, unfortunately the weather was not nice enough for us to benefit much from the outside space. Great area with Tescos nearby and nice unusual shops in town. Highly recommend a visit to the Marmalade Cafe, great service, food and prices. We went there twice in our 5 days in the area. A great house for a few families to share the cost.

  • "Overall a good space to suit our family get together."

    The showers were disappointing with regards to pressure - particularly in the downstairs bathroom. There was no hot water on the morning we checked out - had to wash the dishes in cold water. Property is looking rather tired in places.

  • "We had a lovely stay in Tutshill, as a family of 9 adults."

    Beautiful area.Caradoc was ideal and worked well for us.Great kitchen and garden.Lounge slightly snug for 9 adults but ok.It could get a bit chilly in the evenings. Great stay.Would have preferred double quilts on the single beds for adults, as I do at home.One slight niggle was 5 adults using one bathroom, as it obviously wasn’t possible to be all en-suite.Need to do a time table for bathroom usage! Also it would have helped to have labels on kitchen drawers as there was so much provided. Lots of games provided to keep us occupied in the evenings.The property was lovely and clean, bar a few normal scrapes and marks.Would definitely recommend for a larger group of people.Quiet area and good parking.

  • "It was all good we had only two main issues, the house could get very cold at times with loud temperatures outside and there was no way to control the thermostat."

    Some of the showers don’t have enough power to have enough power to have a proper water flow.

    I'm sorry you felt cold in the house. I hope you were able to use the wood provided for the wood burning stove as that makes the sitting room nice and cosy. There is also a thermostat unit in the sitting room with instructions, as described in the welcome pack, so the heating can be boosted at any time. Property Owner

    Especially grd floor bedroom with walk in shower for one person of ours with limited mobility. Well done you for useful utensils and generous crockery for catering and handy hints working the modern ovens. We hope to be back.

    The house is really comfortable. It is well situated to discover Bristol, Bath and south Wales.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Caradoc we were a party of six and the property was fine for this number, I feel that it would have been cramped for ten, especially in the sitting room."

    The kitchen would benefit from a few more plates and sharper knives and oven trays being cleaned or replaced. The dinning room and game selection was perfect. Bedrooms were beautiful, unfortunately the en suite floor was very creaky.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Caradoc. Thank you for your constructive feedback. We will try to remedy the situation regarding kitchen equipment as soon as possible. Fortunately, groups of ten that have stayed at Caradoc so far have commented positively on the spaciousness of the house. I think there are enough different seating areas for it not to feel cramped though I appreciate the sitting room is 'cosy' for that number! Property Owner

  • "This house worked perfectly for our group of 5 adults and 3 children."

    There were multiple living spaces so we had plenty of space to spread out. With so many people we could have felt cramped but we didn't feel that here at all. The house was very well equipped. Kids loved the games room. Bedding, towels and electrical appliances were of a very high standard. A lot of thought and effort had gone into making this property a great place to stay. We would have liked to stay for the week but this came at an extra £400 and I couldn't justify that. I think there's a disparity between start dates offered on HomeToGo website and Sykes website?

    Thank you for your positive comments. I'm glad you enjoyed visiting Caradoc and found it great place to stay. I have followed up your query about the disparity of start dates on third party websites. Hopefully there will now be a clear comment in the description that the property has only Friday and Monday as changeover days, so our housekeeper has a regular schedule for cleaning. Property Owner

  • "This property is very nicely situated, updated, and with all the modcons you would expect to see."

    The size of the residence was perfect for our group of 6 adults, two teenagers and one 7 year old. Its location was great too, with two main walking routes of 15 minutes (or less) to the town of Chepstow. There was a corner shop about a five minute walk away, as well as a butcher shoppe, cafe and playground. We were very happy with our stay at Caradoc and would recommend it to others.

  • "Cannot fault Caradoc."

    The house was spotless and the utility information was excellent. You would not want for anything as the house was stocked with everything you would want and cannot believe how many games, books and dvds on the property. There was a hairdryer in each of the 3 main rooms and plenty of towels and soap dispensers in every bathroom and kitchen. Also there was a welcome basket full of goodies which was most welcome. Will hopefully be back in 2024 for the races again.

    Plenty of space, large kitchen, nice garden and comfy beds. Short walk into Chepstow down a steep hill but nice to be able to leave the car at the house. Good situation for visits to Chepstow castle, Dean Forest steam Railway, Lydney Harbour, Tintern Abbey and Bristol.

  • "We had a great weekend at Caradoc."

    The house was clean, spacious, very well equipped and homely. It was very frosty when we arrived but the house warmed up quickly, using the "booster" and the woodburning stove. The only issue was that some members of our party had trouble finding the house as Sedbury Lane is very long and if you enter from the wrong end you are not able to get through by car. You need the house number along with the postcode to set the SatNav in order to avoid confusion, but in the info you only get the house name. The house was perfect for a family get-together and we would be happy to return for another one in the future.

    I'm so glad you had a good weekend despite the cold weather and you were able to enjoy the woodburner. I'm sorry some of your party had trouble finding the house though. Sykes should have sent you travel directions as well as the address which gives clear instructions to find Caradoc - there is no number for the house. (If any future guests have an issue, please don't hesitate to call on the mobile number provided for directions.) Property Owner

  • "We cannot recommend Caradoc highly enough."

    We were a family party consisting of three generations and it suited everyone; a great games room for our 11 and 9 year olds (at the top of the house), extremely clean and comfortable throughout and very spacious. The house is located in a very quiet area yet is close to Chepstow and has beautiful walks from its doorstep. Thank you for a fabulous stay!

  • "A spotlessly clean, well equipped property just outside Chepstow."

    Parking for 4 cars. A 15 minute walk to the town via the old bridge although the steep walk back would be challenging to some. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Spacious property with plenty of facilities."

    Welcome package was very informative along with a nice selection of drinks, biscuits and milk. The provision of a ground floor room with en-suite was a great bonus for one of our party who has mobility issues. Local shop was within easy walking distance. The selection of games and DVD's for all ages was an added bonus. Unfortunately local pub was not fully open and although the walk into Chepstow isn't very far it is very steep. Would certainly stay again.

    Thank you for your comments and positive feedback. I'm sorry our information about the Village Inn was out of date. There's now a new wine bar in Tutshill village, but with limited opening hours . The Boat Inn on the riverbank is great for food and drink but, as you say, the walk over the old bridge is very steep - good views though! We'd love to welcome you back to 'Caradoc' again.

    The house was perfect for our needs as a large family group with children. There was plenty to do in the area and the house location gave very easy access to the town. Would highly recommend.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. As our first full week guests your positive online feedback is much appreciated. It's great to know the house offers as much as we hoped for holidaying families. Property Owner

The property

Caradoc is an attractive, semi-detached holiday home nestled on the England-Wales border in Tutshill near Chepstow, Monmouthshire.

Set over three floors with ground-floor living, a woodburning stove and enclosed garden, the property welcomes a family or group of ten to explore the Wye Valley and Cotswolds.

Off-road parking greets you on arrival to begin your holiday with ease; step inside the spacious 1930s house to find a large, well-equipped kitchen to stock up the cupboards and prepare your favourite meals.

There's a breakfast bar to savour your morning coffee, along with a dishwasher for easy clean ups, whilst the neighbouring utility hosts a washer and dryer to quickly sort muddy walking gear.

A handy cloakroom is perfect for freshening up before dinner, which can be enjoyed in the living/dining room with a large table to host 12 guests; bring a bottle of fizz to toast to your retreat over a heart-warming meal, before retreating to the sitting area overlooking the garden.

Further seating awaits in the sitting room by the warmth of the woodburning stove, where a bay window brings in plenty of light for lazy days reclining on the sofas with a book or your favourite show on the TV.

A lovely spot for socialising, the enclosed garden offers outdoor seating to dine alfresco and a lawn for playing games in the sunshine.

Younger guests will also relish the second-floor games room with a selection of games and toys to choose from in a little hideaway.

Adults too might enjoy the Table Football game whilst the children relax on brightly coloured beanbags.

Suitable for the whole family, Caradoc offers flexible sleeping arrangements to suit a variety of guests; the ground-floor double with en-suite wet room is perfect for those with limited mobility, whilst the first floor hosts another double with an en-suite bathroom, a zip/link double, and two twin bedrooms.

Serving the first-floor bedrooms is a spacious bathroom for relaxing bubble baths and hot showers, followed by a fluffy towel fresh off the heated towel rail.

In a prime location for local amenities and attractions, you'll find a convenience store in Tutshill, whilst the market town of Chepstow lies just a ten minute walk away across the bridge; explore the remains of the town's 11th-century clifftop castle, discover local history at Chepstow Museum or join Offa's Dyke National Trail, which stretches as far as Prestatyn, for a scenic walk along the Wye Valley.

Cyclists can also join the Greenways route, a 5 mile cycle, including a mile-long tunnel along an old railway track, from Tutshill to Tintern in the Wye Valley with its abbey ruins; this route is also suitable for walkers and wheelchair users.

For more outdoor adventures, head to the meadows and hills of the Cotswolds or to the Forest of Dean for walking, cycling or canoeing in a gorgeous expanse of rolling hills and countryside!

The picturesque towns of Monmouth and Abergavenny are nearby, whilst Bristol and Cardiff are two vibrant cities with plenty on offer for culture vultures.

With so much to see and do on your doorstep, book your next family holiday on the Welsh borders at Caradoc.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £550.
