Established less than a century ago, Cwmbran is a relatively new town positioned at the mouth of the Wye Valley and Vale of Usk, giving it a unique blend of modernity and connectedness to the environment.
A small but varied selection of accommodation options in the town centre itself means that, whether you are visiting to enjoy the town’s impressive shopping centre, looking for a more luxurious country break, of simply looking for somewhere affordable to base your countryside adventures, Cwmbran has the hotel for you.
There are also a wealth of hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts and apartments available in the broader environs as well as in nearby Newport.
Shopping in Cwmbran
Whether you do choose to stay at one of the town centre hotels or a bit further out in the countryside, make sure you bring some pocket money with you so that you make full use of the Cwmbran Shopping Centre, one of the largest outlets in Wales.
With the shopping centre providing plenty of free parking, a huge range of top brand shops, as well as a multiplex cinema and bingo hall, Cwmbran is a major attraction for those in need of a bit of retail therapy or entertainment.
Sport in Cwmbran
Having a golf and country club in Cwmbran itself, not to mention the 30 golf clubs in the surrounding areas, including Newport’s purpose-built Ryder Cup Twenty Ten course, means that keen golfers might want to opt for a country hotel or bed and breakfast a stone’s throw from their chosen first tee.
Those looking to enjoy more energetic sporting activities will want to stay at one of the town centre hotels and make the most of the facilities at Cwmbran Stadium where you’ll discover outdoor football and hockey pitches, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness suite and various spa facilities and studios spaces.
Rugby fans meanwhile should keep an eye on the fixture diary for the world-renowned Newport RFC, and might perhaps want to book accommodation closer to Newport.
