A collection of greenery in Newport

The apartment is in a great spot for accessing everything that the city has to offer. It’s only a few miles out from the city centre but it’s vide is different. Beechwood Park is right on your doorstep so you can look forward to weekend strolls in crunchy-leaf Autumn through to summery picnic days. If you want to indulge, head to the 5 star luxury Celtic Manor (which is a five-minute drive away up Christchurch) to top up on your golf skills, or pamper yourself with a facial and relax in the jacuzzi. Up over the hill and down again is Caerleon and you also have a plethora of shops at Spytty. If its more local you’re after Maindee isn’t to far. Kitting out your new home will be easy if you go and speak to Paul in Beechwood Beds, and if it’s a candle you’re after then he has plenty of these too. If your taste in furniture is somewhat more vintage, the Umbrella Project has loads of pieces ready painted in Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey. It’s worth making a morning of treasure hunting here to be honest!

Friendly vibes & great food

Newport’s cafe stalwart the Wayfarers is perhaps a little closer. You get to know the cafe owners here, and everyone is super friendly, so you will feel welcomed for sure. If a merlot is more your thing then the Man of Gwent couldn’t be any closer. The obvious 
advantage of living here is the connections to everywhere. There’s plenty of great transport links throughout the city so when a summer shopping spree is needed and you don’t need the headache of finding somewhere to park. If you’re heading further afield, you can be on the M4 within a few minutes, or head northeast from there and the countryside awaits at Wentwood Forest – wonderful!
