Why not make a weekend of it and stay with us during your vist to Chepstow. We have onsite glamping accommodation available in the form of Wooden Wigwams. Sleeping up to five adults, Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; double-glazed, secure, cosy and warm whatever the time of year. A low cost alternative to hotels and B&Bs, our Wigwams truly offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

The View Café Bar


The latest addition to the National Diving & Activity Center site is The View, our new Café Bar complex. The Cafe is open from 7am until 9pm, with the licensed bar open from 11am to 11pm

With breathtaking views overlooking our Chepstow quarry, the View Café Bar serves an extensive range of hot & cold meals as well as a wide selection of beers, wines and soft drinks from the licensed bar. We also have free WiFi and two very posh coffee machines that make a lovely freshly ground coffee, perfect to prepare you for a morning of activity.

When you sit at one of our tables with the stunning views across the water you'll see why we've named our Cafe Bar 'The View'!

We look forward to seeing you at the top of The Wire!
