Well respected independent schools nearby include: Monmouth Haberdashers schools, Clifton School Bristol, or Howells School Cardiff. More information is available on for independent schools and for state schools.

Local, Sporting & Recreational The hamlet of Wolvesnewton is too small for it's own amenities, however locally at Devauden there is a post office, pub, and village hall. Chepstow provides more extensive amenities a short driving distance away.   Located on the banks of the River Wye, Chepstow is most notable for it's castle, which is the oldest surviving stone castle in Britain. More extensive retail, leisure and cultural facilities are within easy reach at Bristol, Bath & Cardiff. The area provides a wealth of sporting and recreational facilities, the Wye Valley borders this community and provides ample opportunity for many fine walks, water sports and fishing. Chepstow Park Wood, which is Forestry Commission owned is within easy riding distance and offers fantastic out riding and walking. Racing is at Chepstow (Famous for the Welsh Grand National), Cheltenham, Hereford & Worcester. Golf is at Rolls Golf Course, Monmouth or Celtic Manor, Newport. Hunting is with Curre & Llangibby Hunt.

The Old Rectory The Old Rectory enjoys a very private setting with outstanding views across open countryside. Set in about 1 acre of formal gardens and grounds, predominantly laid to lawn, the house has a panoramic vista over the ha-ha and across the distant valley.    This period house (not listed) is of stone construction with one rendered elevation under a slate roof. The property has recently been updated providing for a good quality of living standard with excellent kitchen and new bathrooms. The house sits in a secluded location accessed via a no through road and overlooks its own land and outbuildings.

Spacious Accommodation The spacious accommodation extends to about 4,285ft2 floor area, arranged over two floors. The main entrance leads via the conservatory to the reception hall with tiled floor and beautiful oak staircase. The reception rooms are of excellent size and height with large sash windows and original period fireplaces. Over the hall is a central cupola providing maximum light into the house, from the hall stairs lead to the first floor and the wine cellar.   The fully equipped kitchen comes complete with Aga, modern gas range cooker and opens into the generously proportioned conservatory, ideal for informal entertaining and family living.    On the first floor there is a spacious landing area, off which lead the 4 principal bedrooms, retaining period features including large sash windows and period fireplaces. There are 6 bedrooms in total, two with en suite facilities. The rear bedroom area could easily be split to provide an internal flat for dependent relatives or staff.

Buildings & Land Opposite the house sits the stone outbuilding, formerly the village hall and school room (About 1500 ft2). With stable and loft attached, this provides good potential for further development to provide extra accommodation or business use, subject to planning consent.    The land lies in front and to the south east of the house. The post & rail fenced field is currently in cereal rotation but will be re sown to grass after harvest. This has several access gates and road frontage providing scope for a private entrance drive leading to the house. With a Ha-ha between garden and field, there is a very pleasing vista from the house and gardens.
