Mari Lwyd festival Chepstow

The Greenman is far more than just a place to park your rucksack. Walking through this old building, which has been lovingly restored by Mick and Ness, is a history lesson in itself with its Georgian and Regency rooms and even a medieval moot house (still being restored).

The beds are extremely comfortable, the washing facilities excellent and there is a wonderful bar with a friendly atmosphere.

We stayed two nights for the Mari Lwyd festival in January and intend to return in the summer.

We cannot recommend the Greenman highly enough. In the "other details" section I describe it as "quaint" and "quirky" because these are the words that come closest to unique and fascinating.
