Where to Base in Wales for Chepstow Castle, Caerphilly?

I am thinking of spending 4 nights in one area/town, and doing day trips to Caerphilly, Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle, Blenarven Iron works, Welsh life village.

I was thinking of Chepstow itself, but it seems to have limited hotel facilities. Should I consider Cardiff? Is it hard to do day trips from there because of traffic?

One thing I forgot to mention is the amazing afternoon tea in the Angel Hotel,Abergavenny, not to be missed! The other popular restaurant is The Hardwick http://www.thehardwick.co.uk
