Lower Minnets is a small hay meadow hidden amongst dense woodland near Caldicot.

The meadow is only 1 hectare but is packed with over 60 species of colourfu plants. There's white oxeye daisies, yellow agrimony and cowslips, common spotted orchids, betony and wild marjoram. They create a feeding haven for butterflies and moths in the summer.

The surround woodlands and hedgerows are refuge for small mammals and birds including hawfinces, crossbills and spotted flycatchers.
