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.
Getting around
It would be advantageous to have a car during your stay.

It only takes 2 minutes to get to the canal by foot.

You can use the mountain bikes to get around during your stay.

For those travelling on the M4, leave at junction 26, follow the directions for Pontypool and Abergavenny on the A4051 then the A4042. When you reach the “McDonalds” roundabout outside Pontypool carry on towards Abergavenny. At the very next roundabout take the first exit left which should take you past the thatched “Horse & Jockey” Public house/restaurant which will be on your right. Climb the gradient then when the road levels out Sunlea Crescent is the first turn on the left hand side. “Caithness” holiday home is on the right hand side some three quarters of the way into the Crescent.
