New Inn

New Inn

Enveloped by nature...

New Inn is a small community just North of Cwmbran, and South East of Pontypool in the Valley of the Crow. Small in population, it feels like that rural village that lots of people look for. The village is has to its west the Afon Lwyd and in the east the Monmouthsire and Brecon Canal. Just to the north is the Folly Tower, great for walking to and talking in the views of the surrounding countryside and the canal.
In the village there are lots of places to get the daily supplies and send off some letters in the local post office.

One of our favourite places since its transformation is “The Lower”. All we can say is wow…their tapas evenings are amazing! Spanish music playing while we sampled the patatas bravas and squid, simply divine. We sometimes like to travel a little further though and try the different places along the canal, particularly the Horseshoe just north in Mamhilad.

The area is served by some cracking schools, the village primary being the pick of the bunch.

...filled with personality

If it’s sports you are after for the kids then Jarrod’s field provides facilities for the New Panteg RFC and the New Inn Junior and Youth Football Clubs. Pontypool Active Living Centre and dry ski slope facility are in walking distance thought the park and the nearby Llandegveth reservoir and Brecon-Monmouthshire Canal provide additional recreational opportunities. New Inn is located next to the Beacon’s National Park and Momouthshire countryside of outstanding natural beauty and is just a few minutes by car from the industrial heritage sites of Big Pit and Blaenavon.

There’s plenty of great transport links, head down the highway and in minutes you’re on the dual carriageway to Newport and then onto the M4 where you can be in Bristol in 30 minutes and even London in just over 2 hours. Head north and you can be in the countryside bordering the Brecon Beacons in just 15 mins. The train station in New Inn serves the mainline north to Abergavenny and onto places like Manchester and Leeds while heading south takes you directly to Newport and Cardiff.
