About

Once part of the hunting grounds of Chepstow Castle, Wentwood offers walks with breathtaking views over the Severn Estuary. Its diversity of habitats means it is home to some wonderful wildlife. Visit in spring to enjoy the bluebells or in autumn to spot colourful fungi.

Wentwood forms part of the largest block of ancient woodland in Wales, and is a remnant of the continuous forest that once stretched from the River Usk to the Wye. There are a number of Bronze Age tumuli (funerary barrows) on the ridge tops, and in Roman times the wood was an important source of timber.
