Llandogo is a small village in Monmouthshire, south Wales, set on a steep hillside overlooking the River Wye. It is sited between Monmouth and Chepstow in the lower reaches of the Wye Valley.

The village was renowned at one time for building of Trows, flat-bottomed boats that were used for trading on the River Wye, the River Severn and across the Bristol Channel to Bristol. The bell of 'The William and Sarah', one of the last Chepstow barges to trade on the river can be found in the bell tower of Llandogo's St Oudoceus church.

Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement, spent several summers as a boy at The Priory in Llandogo, and recounts in the 6th yarn of 'Scouting For Boys' an expedition by folding boat up the Thames, down the Avon and across the Severn Estuary, finishing in Llandogo.

Areas of Interest
There are many local walks along the river bank and up through the village to Cleddon Shoots and towards Trellech. The Wye Valley Walk runs along the top of the village, and the Offa's Dyke walk is just across the river.

The village's 'Millenium Hall' was opened in 2003 by Princess Anne. Events are organised by the local community.

Brown's Stores has been the village's only general goods store since 1921 and is still to this day run by the family. The family itself have lived in the village for generations.

The Sloop Inn is the village's only pub and derives its name from the flat bottomed trows that were once famous in the area. A well-known pub in Bristol, the Llandoger Trow, is named after the village and its boats.

Two miles south of Llandogo is Tintern, famous for its spectacular ruins of Tintern Abbey.
