think we'll be away, but do head over to Caerleon for a day out- (free) Roman Musem, amphitheatre / baths, and the ffrwm (from the post offvce, head away from the baths about a minute), cafe there or nice lunches in the ship or, if it gets too busy (sometimes does imo), keep to the left past it away from village until you hit kings pub. Both have nice play areas.
Ummm..... swimming pool in newport, raglan castle obv, easy enough (under hour) to get to either Barry for beaches or Brigend for shopping outlet, but tbh countryside around the campsite is stunning.
Oh, apparently three salmons (their grammar not mine!) in usk is nice, there's a little coffee shop there too with a nice outside courtyard- erm- big asda in cwmbran easy to find, M&S there too with food hall
we're off Sat but if there's any info I casn help woith before then i am peaches and cream 04 at bt internet dot com
Pont Kemys is lovely - not very keen on the Chainbridge pub though (think its called that) but there is a lovely pub if you go left out of the campsite and then near the chainbridge take a steep road up towards the left - keep following it - takes quite a while by foot. Food is very very nice and they were lovely to dd.
