Woodcroft is a small village on the outskirts of the Welsh town of Chepstow yet in Gloucestershire, England. The village lies between the River Wye, to the west, and the Forest of Dean, to the east, a place to enjoy beautiful and extraordinary surroundings. Woodcroft was developed as a suburban area in the 19th and 20th centuries. Nearby towns and villages include Tutshill, Tideham, Boughspring and Sedbury.
Local attractions include the National Diving Centre that offers excellent inland diving facilities and an exciting range of activities, including a Discover Scuba Diving Course, and PADI & TDI training courses from clubs or groups to book for night dives.
Other attractions include the meandering Offa's Dyke Path, which runs 177 miles through no less than eight different counties and crosses over the border between England and Wales over 20 times.
Another long distance path running by the village is the Gloucestershire Way. This route goes through the Forest of Dean linking the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path national trails. The route crosses almost the full width of Gloucestershire from the Welsh border town of Chepstow to Tewkesbury on the River Severn.
The River Wye itself flows from its source on the slopes of Plynlimon in Mid Wales to Chepstow where it enters the Severn Estuary, and flows through some of the most attractive and varied countryside in Britain, with some of the most eye-catching scenery on the doorstep of Woodcroft itself.
