Chepstow, Monmouthshire, South Wales, Wales
A luxury award winning period property, built in the time of Edward I, (we think it was built approx 1270). This Grade II* medieval hideaway boasts seven hundred years of history - and with its towers it feels like you are living in a fairy tale castle. <BR><BR>Stay from 1 night to 2 weeks.
