Caldicot (Welsh: Cil-y-coed) is a small town located in Monmouthshire, southern Wales. It is located in between Chepstow and the city of Newport. It is also the location of Caldicot Castle. The population is around 12,000. It has a large school, Caldicot Comprehensive School, and is the nearest town to the Severn Tunnel.

The name 'Caldicot' derives from the Old English phase calde cot meaning 'cold hut'. A cold hut is an exposed shelter used by either humans or animals. The town is referred in the Domesday book as Caldecote.

Caldicot is twinned with Wagshäusel, Germany.
