If travelling to Veddw House Garden by COACH please skip to the ESSENTIAL information below.
(Generous on-site parking available) Sat Navs seem to bring people happily to our doorstep.
Postcode: NP16 6PH
Grid reference: ST 492 986
Address: Veddw House, The Fedw, Devauden, Monmouthshire NP16 6PH
Best make note of these directions – you won’t find a phone signal once you get nearby.
From Devauden: leave the B4293 and take the St Arvans road, as shown on the banner on the Village Hall fence. Down a steep hill with Chepstow Park Wood on the right. After half a mile turn left, signposted The Fedw.
From St Arvans: If you’re coming from Wyndcliffe Court turn right at the twee Victorian fountain on the bend just before the Piercefield Pub, and keep going through the village on Devauden Road. If you’re coming from Chepstow bear left (rather than taken the severe left) at the same twee Victorian fountain after the Piercefield Pub and then go through village on Devauden Road, then go up and down hills until you reach the woods, go through woods, mind the deer, look for sign The Fedw on the left and turn right down that lane.
From Tintern: take the road to St Arvans, passing Tintern Abbey on your left and up a long winding hill. At St Arvans, just past the village hall and little shop on your left, where the main road goes left and facing the twee Victorian fountain, take the right turn . Then up and down hills until you reach the woods, go through woods, mind the deer, look for sign The Fedw on the left and turn right down that lane.
Our car park is the first entrance on the right down The Fedw – park, then come through to the garden by way of the path next to the car park gate and through the wooden gate.

You will have to drop people off at the top of the lane marked The Fedw then park up (see below) and collect later at an agreed time. The lane is too narrow for coaches, even small ones. Please warn your coach driver NOT to attempt it. Seems obvious – there is a ‘no HGVs’ sign, but recently one did and badly damaged his coach.
Please take care that the coach does not block the lane or obscure the exit for cars from the lane for anything but the shortest possible time. (for the sake of our neighbours)
Your party need to take the first entrance on the right, into our car park, then take the path by the gate into the garden.
If people have difficulty walking it is quite a short way down the lane to the garden. If they cannot then reach the lower garden I will be happy to give them a lift from there if the group leader lets me know when you arrive. There is a seat where they can wait, but do warn them that they will miss the best, dramatic view of the garden. I can also give a lift back up to the coach later.
Parking is available in The Forestry Car Park a short distance from The Fedw turning, through the woods. The Forestry car park has a mobile signal – useful if you need to contact the driver. Parking for coaches is also available in Devauden, beside the village hall. However – there is not a reliable mobile signal in Devauden.
