New Homes in Wales
Wales is a proud and beautiful country often divided into four regions with their own distinct characters. These include North Wales with its great castles at Conwy and Caernarvon, the large cities of South Wales and of course the unspoilt beauty of the Gower, Pembrokeshire and the Brecon Beacons in West Wales.
Whether it’s a Barratt Homes development in Llanelli, Cardiff, Cwmbran , Abercarn, Bridgend, Newport, Swansea, Monmouthshire, Neath, Pontypridd, Caerphilly or elsewhere, a new home in Wales offers a host of benefits.
Step Back in Time
There has been evidence of human life in Wales dating back almost 30,000 years, although the idea of a distinct Welsh identity only began to take shape during the Roman era.
Centuries later, an uprising led by iconic Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr against Henry IV of England led to him being crowned as Prince of Wales. However his rule was short lived and the two nations were formally united in 1536.
Following a referendum in 1997, many political and economic powers were devolved to the newly formed Welsh Assembly based in Cardiff.
Transport in Wales
The cities of South Wales are linked by the M4 Motorway. Swansea is less than an hour’s drive from Cardiff, while Newport is less than half an hour from the Welsh capital. The M4 is also the country’s principal link to England, with the city of Bristol just over the famous suspension bridges crossing the Severn estuary.
In North Wales the A55 links with the M56 and then the M6 to connect the region with the major cities of the North West, including Liverpool and Manchester. The airports of both these major cities lie within 2 hours drive from many of the towns in North Wales. Cardiff Airport also flies to many international and domestic destinations.
A Great Place to Live
