Cycling on local quiet roads

Rural walks straight from the door, across the fields, then either on to the next door golf course (St Pierre, where you can stop for lunch), or down to the Bristol Channel/Severn Estuary (though you do have to

go through a field with electrical pylons in), or round the back of Mathern Palace and The Church of St Tewdric. Alternatively, down the drive, and turn left under the motorway and then turn left up the little lane to the local fishponds with huge fields to walk around. Or go through Mathern Village, cross over at Pwllmeyric, and take a 4 hour walk through Mounton and up to the Wye Valley. You can walk (on local roads) to Chepstow Castle. Within 5 miles there is Offa’s Dyke Path, the Wentwood which is the largest ancient woodland in Wales, the Wye Valley and The Forest Of Dean
