Find a perfect balance with a new home in Newport
Offering a range of beautiful new four and five-bedroom homes, Charles Church's latest development Parklands Grove is ideally situated to benefit from superb local services and enviable commuter links.
With ample amenities including a state of the art shopping centre, buzzing nightlife, great schools and scenic coastal paths – it’s not hard to see why Newport was recently ranked the 3rd best place to live in the UK. The often underrated Welsh city offers a high quality of life for those in search of a new home, whether you’re taking your first step onto the property ladder or are looking for more space for your family.
Parklands Grove sits on the eastern outskirts of the city, just a stone’s throw from Spytty Retail Park and leisure centre – providing all the shopping and entertainment options you could need, from supermarkets to cinemas and sports facilities. For a wider choice of retail, entertainment and employment options, Newport city centre is just a 15-minute drive away, or you could make the most of great road and rail links to Bristol and Cardiff.
You’ll find all your weekly essentials at Spytty Retail Park, including a Tesco Extra, Marks and Spencer, Aldi and Boots, alongside popular high street chains such as Next, Dunelm, River Island and Matalan to name just a few – not to mention numerous eateries and entertainment venues such as a Cineworld and adventure sports centre. There’s also a wealth of shops and dining options in Newport city centre, with many of them located in the recently redeveloped Friars Walk Shopping Centre.
Those who enjoy keeping fit and taking sports will be in their element here. Newport International Sports Village, also known as Spytty Park, is a 10-minute drive from Parklands Grove and hosts an incredible range of sporting facilities including a velodrome, pool, gym, tennis centre, football pitches and much much more. Kids will no doubt love a visit to Jump Adventure Trampoline Park, or for something a little more relaxing, you could head down to the coast for a scenic walk along the Sea Wall.
You’ll find a number of schools for children of all ages within a couple of miles of the development. Local primary schools include Ysgol Gymraeg Casnewydd (Welsh medium), Lliswerry Primary School and Glan Llyn Primary School. Older students can attend Llanwern High School or Lliswerry High School, while Coleg Gwent is one of Wales’ largest and top-performing higher education colleges, and the University of South Wales also has a campus in Newport.
As well as having many businesses and industries of its own, Newport is a convenient base from which to commute to Bristol or Cardiff. Junction 24 of the M4 is just a few minutes away from Parklands, enabling you to reach Bristol in just 38 minutes and Cardiff in 40. Getting around by train is even quicker, with an 11-minute direct service from Newport Railway Station, 31-minute direct services to Bristol, and 1 hour 40-minute direct services to London Paddington.
