Local Life in serene Stow Hill

As a community, Stow Hill feels very much in the thick of it. Distinctive in its residential vernacular, the Riverfront University Campus development brought with it new market and arcade developments and the reopening of the Entertainment Quarter. Just wait for this area to continue to come to life as it develops and swells in the community. The Riverfront Arts Centre, with two stages, regularly hosts events by a huge range of internationally known musicians and stage performers. After taking in some culture, head to the local pub or restaurant for supper before returning home to your house on the hill.

On the doorstep is Belle Vue Park, established in Victorian times, the 26 acre park boasts Himalayan Magnolias and branches of the Judas Trees can be seen covered with clusters of rose-lilac flowers at certain times of the year. You can top off that perfect dog walk in the park with a hot comforting beverage from the tea rooms.

One of the loveliest areas in Newport

This is a great area for a family, as well as commuters. Asides from being right next to the hospital, the area is served by some cracking primary schools Glasllwch, St Woolos and Clytha and Bassaleg. John Frost comprehensives are not too far away either.

In five mins, outside of rush hour you can be on the M4 within minutes heading off to Cardiff or whisking yourself away to the big smoke. Head northeast and you can be quickly enjoying the countryside on the scenic drive.
