A proud industrial town, Port Talbot sits between the miles of sand on Aberavon Beach and the dramatic Brecon Beacons National Park to the north. The town centre has all you need, brand name shops, coffee shops, restaurants, a cinema and a huge leisure centre. The schools are good, as is healthcare with both a GPs and hospital in the town.

As well as having playgrounds, parks and football and rugby pitches, your new home in Port Talbot is just 10 minutes' drive from the cricket ground at Margam Park – which also has 1000 acres of parkland – and Afan forest and Bryn Woods for great mountain biking. If you need a location that’s great for travel, a new build in Port Talbot can oblige with the M4 right on your doorstep.
