I'm so lucky to have Caldicot Castle right across the road, and St Marys Church right next door, The Lychgate is really in a fantastic position, I'm glad you stay with me when you come and visit friends, It's lovely to see people return, at least I know I'm doing something right! Thank you Janice More

I have used this place to stay usually the weekend of the British Speedway GP. The owners and staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The rooms are very well appointed and very comfortable too.

I booked my family to stay at this local B&B. We don't have enough space and usually family go to a local big hotel. We found this place by chance and my mum loved it! She said that the rooms were spacious, the welcome warm and the food excellent. I called in to take a look and was really impressed... More

From the moment you pull onto the drive the 'Experience' begins. Janice is there to welcome you asking 'shall I put the kettle on, tea or coffee?'. You are given a lovely sincere welcome and shown to your room(s)' , your tray of tea/coffee soon arrives . Comfort and customer satisfaction is the order of the day, the rooms are... More

There is a long story to this... the short answer is that The Lychgate is a fabulous place and I would definitely go there again. What happened was this: I had consecutive days of business meetings in Cardiff and Bristol, and didn't really fancy driving into either of them during the peak hours. Accommodation in the city is usually pricy,... More

What a lovely review, thank-you so much . I agree with you, the larger hotels can be very impersonal I'd much rather stay in a Guest House or B+B. I'm really lucky to be situated near the station,,and across the road from the fantastic Castle Inn. The little touches in the rooms I love to add, a bit of home... More
