We are located in the Centre of Chepstow Town

The Greenman Backpackers Accommodation is situated in the very centre of Chepstow, Monmouthshire and can be accessed from Beaufort Square or from the Main Car Park off Welsh Street. Please see the map below.

The Greenman offers facilities with panoramic views over the Town, Wye and Severn Valleys and is less than five minutes from the key visitor attractions of Chepstow, including Chepstow Castle, the Norman Church and Town Museum. Also close by are the Tourist Information Centre, Town Gate and Chepstow Bridge, two hundred years old in 2016.

There are numerous eateries and watering holes in the town of Chepstow. Mick and Ness would happily point you towards them.

The centre of Chepstow offers varied entertainment and events ranging from Acoustic Music, Films in the Drill Hall, the Dance Club and Saturday Street Markets. Chepstow also offers a bi annual Arts Festival, the annual (April) Walkers are Welcome Festival, Hoggin’ the Bridge and our own Wassail and Mari Lwyd in January.

We are situated in the very centre of it all!

The hostel takes room bookings for all of the above and for more casual visitors. Be prepared… you may want to stay another night!

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.
