Caerwent is a small village and community in Monmouthshire, South Wales. It is located about five miles west of Chepstow and eleven miles east of Newport, and was founded by the Romans as the market town of Venta Silurum, an important settlement of the Brythonic Silures tribe. Caerwent has a pub and a Post Office/village store and a laundrette and as the village used to be a Roman settlement there are large sections of the Roman town walls still in place, some rising even as high as 5 metres, and there are also ruins of several Roman houses and a temple. The small town of Caldicot is home to Caldicot Castle where a variety of festivals and concerts, hosting international bands are held throughout the year, and other nearby venues and historical points of interest include Chepstow Castle and Caerleon Roman Ruins. A short drive up the Wye Valley will take you to Tintern Abbey, evidence of the fury of Henry VIII’s Reformation, as well as iconic subject of the poets and artists of the Romantic Movement. The Forest of Dean, extending up on either side of the Wye Valley, is wonderful for cycling or walking, hosts “Go Ape” for the kids and the river itself is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, as well as a great resource for canoeing, fishing or (in parts) wild swimming. There are the gardens and grottoes at Dewstow where many hidden treasures are waiting to be discovered, with seasonal fun days to entertain children, such as Easter Egg Hunts and Santa’s grotto experience. For horse lovers, there is Chepstow Race Course, offering a full calendar of activities as well as the Welsh National. The nearby David Broome Event Centre, offers exciting weekly competitions throughout the year and an annual 3-day cross country event in the neighbouring Caldicot Castle grounds. For the golfer, there is St Pierre Golf Club, Chepstow, which has two fantastic championship courses for you to play and has hosted many international tournaments and the 18th is one of the finest finishing holes you are ever likely to play. Let’s not forget the Celtic Manor, a mere 15-minute drive, home of the 2010 Ryder Cup, with three world class championship courses. If you prefer water sports, then the National Diving and Activity Centre in Chepstow offers a range of exciting activities, as well as diving, there are zip wires, a giant 3D swing and Segway to keep you busy. The city of Cardiff is home to a fantastic major shopping centre, an ice rink, water rafting, Cardiff Castle, the National Museum of Wales and the Cardiff Bay facilities, including the Wales Millennium Centre, the BBC Studios and the Dr Who Experience which are all just a short drive away.
