About the neighbourhood
The house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, pleasantly positioned right alongside the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. Pontypool park is only a 2 minute drive from the house or a 10 minute walk, including facilities such as a children's play area, rugby pitch (home to Pontypool RFC), tennis courts, pitch and putt, bowls and a dry ski slope. It has historical features - including Italian Gardens, Ice Houses, Folly Tower and Shell Grotto all of which can be found within the 150 acre park. Pontypool Active Living Centre is situated within the grounds, where there is a swimming pool/gym along with squash/badminton and table tennis playing facilities. There is also a soft play area for children within the centre called Treasure Island.
