The Lychgate

The perfect place to stay

Hello, my name is Janice and I’ve owned The Lychgate Guest House since 2014.

Located in Caldicot Monmouthshire, The Lychgate is ideally situated for Caldicot Castle, Castle Gate Business Park, David Broome Event Centre and Chepstow Racecourse to name a few.

A short drive away you can find Tintern Abbey, Symmonds Yat, Monmouth, Abergevenny, Ross-on-Wye, Bristol and of course Cardiff.

The Lychgate has four en-suite rooms all with crisp white linen, TV, free WiFi and USB points

I’m proud to have received a Certificate of Excellence every year since 2014. I was also awarded an SME award in 2017. 

I cater for walkers and cyclists with the Welsh Coastal Path and Offas Dyke so close.

Nestled between the wooded country park of Caldicot Castle and the historic Norman Church of St Mary The Virgin The Lychgate provides the perfect setting for a relaxing stay in the heart of Monmouthshire.

The Lychgate is run and managed by me (Janice). I take pride in offering a first class service, and will do everything I can to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Start the day in the calm environment of our breakfast room where you can help yourself from a selection of Fresh Fruit Salad, Cereals, Welsh Yoghurts and fresh juices.

My cooked breakfast contains only the finest ingredients with locally produced sausage and bacon tomatoes, mushroom and your choice of softly scrambled, poached or fried free range eggs.

A hearty vegetarian option is always available and I am are happy to cater for Vegan, gluten free and any other special dietary requirements 



Caldicot Castle holds amazing events throughout the year, from the massive Cider Festival, to the regular re-enactments held at the weekends, it’s a lovely place to visit set in 55 acres of countryside, just bring a picnic and have a walk round.

The Welsh Coastal path begins in Chepstow 4 miles away, as does Offas Dyke Path, and the beautiful Wye Valley is a short drive away

If golf is your thing St Pierre Golf Course and the famous Celtic Manor are a short drive away, Celtic Manor has a lovely spa for the ladies, while the men are on the course.

The natural beauty of Forest of Dean and market towns of Usk, Chepstow, Abergavenny and Raglan set in the beauty of the Welsh mountains and valleys are close by as are Gwent Levels and Wetlands Nature Reserve, for any wildlife enthusiasts.

What better way to start the day... than with a full Welsh breakfast?

My sausages, bacon and black pudding are sourced from a local butcher where all the pigs are reared in the lovely Wales countryside.

Yogurts are from Llaeth Y Llan village dairy in North Wales, butter from Shirgar, eggs from Cardiff and water from the Brecon Carreg Company.

Your choice could be Fresh porridge, fresh fruit and yoghurts to eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding, tomatoes mushrooms and fried bread, or if you want a lighter start to the day try lovely softly scrambled eggs on toast.

A variety of teas are available or freshly brewed filter coffee, relax and enjoy in the breakfast room.

Upon leaving I'd forgotten to pick up my hair straighteners and the owner kndly messaged me and posted them for me.... Definitely went out her way.... Will definitely be staying again thank you xx

The owner of this wonderful little bed and breakfast is warm hearted, friendly and very helpful. The room as always was in it's perfect clean condition. Janice is very helpful in offering activities to do. Always has a smile on her face. The breakfast is amazing! Continental or cooked couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. Will be staying again when it is possible too. If there is space, I expect the lychgate will be fully booked for months. 🙂 Xx

We stayed in this lovely B&B back in December 2019 just before the dreaded virus. Janice is a wonderful host and the room quality was 5* . I would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting value for money.


Janice runs the guest house and as travelling for business arrived very late on the first night. Lights left on for us and great welcoming touches likes sweets and biscuits in rooms as well as a full toiletries pack. Missed breakfast the first morning as straight to venue for work but got a full choice on the second morning. A great guest house and my only regret is we didn't get to stay for longer and enjoy the local scenery.
