Caerleon

Historic vibes with a modern twist

The historic Roman village of Caerleon is a highly sought-after place to live, not only due to its rich heritage but also for its fantastic range of amenities and great road links to the M4 (just a couple of miles away), Usk and Cwmbran. Many believe it to be the location of King Arthur’s Camelot.

Nowadays it’s a thriving town, where past and present combine. There’s a real artsy vibe with the Ffwrwm Arts & Crafts Centre and statues around the historical centre. Just on the outskirts of Newport, on the River Usk, there’s a wonderful community here. There are so many lovely places to eat to choose from, but the Priory Hotel and the 15th century Ye Olde Bull inn, and The Snug and the Red Fort restaurant are firm favourites.

Pretty and well connected

There are four schools in Caerleon – Caerleon Lodge Hill Junior School, Caerleon Endowed School, Charles Williams Church in Wales Primary School, and Caerleon Comprehensive School. And, being located just a stone’s throw away from the Celtic Manor Resort, there’s plenty to see and do at the world famous five-star luxury retreat, including golf, the Forest Jump tree top course, or spend time luxuriating in the spa.
