    Plenty parking space, it's on a bus route which had bused to Chepstow and Newport. Good outside space with furniture which we enjoyed when the weather permitted. The area is nice and quiet. Enjoyed it very much.

  • "The house was spotlessly clean and tidy and well equipped."

    For anyone with allergies/asthma it was a joy to stay in. It was 30C plus when we were there and the only thing we might have used had it been available was a fan to cool the house down. That said it was well placed for visits to Chepstow, the Wye valley and had easy access to the M4 westbound to Newport, Cardiff and beyond. I would definitely recommend it to others.

  • "Enjoyed a lovely stay at Alvia which was very clean and has mostly new fittings and furnishings."

    Situated in a quiet village with a pub just down the road, the house is on the main road through the village but we weren’t disturbed by any noise when the windows were shut - apart from a keen gardener trimming a hedge rather early one morning! (We noticed all hedges in the village were kept extremely neat :-) ) Beds were very comfortable, Wi-fi & TV excellent and the kitchen is well-equipped. There is a shower room downstairs and bath upstairs. Plenty of off-road parking and spacious accommodation. The owner was lovely and happy to help, not that we had any problems. Would definitely recommend for a comfortable stay.

  • "A lovely holiday home, very clean with good facilities."

    Excellent communication from the owner. Even a birthday card was left for my wife. A small radio/cd player/bluetooth speaker would be an added feature in the dining room or kitchen.

  • "Perfect base to explore Wales."

    Caldicot is a lovely town with a castle and park very close to the accommodation, which was immaculate throughout with everything you need, lovely comfy beds gave us a great nights sleep after being out all day, we visited the wye valley, Cardiff bay, Cardiff city, Porthcawl and many castles it’s good to remember they shut for lunch between 1.30-2.30. We literally covered all this area of Wales and plan to return further up the coastline to explore more, we highly recommend this accommodation .
