About St Arvans Ward - St. Arvans greets visitors, including many walkers and cyclists all the year round. Newcomers to the village from the south are welcomed by the Victorian drinking fountain and those from the north enjoy beautiful views of the Severn estuary on a clear day. From Chepstow the Wye Valley Path threads its way through ancient woodland, passing near Piercefield House and offering a number of stunning viewpoints.

St. Arvans Ward of Monmouthshire County Council is a rural community comprising the village of St. Arvans together with a number of outlying houses and farms. It is situated at the southern end of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is bounded in the north by Devauden, south by Chepstow, west by Itton and to the east by the River Wye. It covers an area of some 4km by 4km. The population was 756 in the 2011 census.

The village has a Church, Memorial Hall, Meeting Rooms, a public house, two shops, several small businesses and two conventional noticeboards.

Both playing fields in the village are well used by local children and visitors. St Arvans is surrounded by farmland and forestry and the Ward includes Oakgrove Stud Farm and Chepstow Racecourse, home of the Welsh Grand National.

The A466 main road between Chepstow and Monmouth via Tintern passes through the village. The other route from the village is a minor road following the Roman road to Monmouth via the old county town of Trellech.

Because of its road and rail communications, the area offers the possibility of easy commuting to Bristol, Newport, and Cardiff and beyond.
