Location, Location, Location: Rossers Field
Llanmoor Homes’ latest project is a select development in the village of Govilon, just outside the bustling market town of Abergavenny. Situated just off the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road, Rossers Field will be home to 51 quality 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes. Finding your forever home in this beautiful area of South Wales should be enough, but let’s look at some other reasons why living in Monmouthshire could be the best move you ever make.
Govilon itself is a small village situated between Gilwern and Llanfoist. The stunning 35-mile-long Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal runs straight through the heart of the village, so you can either take to the water or walk along the numerous paths to the nearby towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell. From Govilon, you have fabulous views across the Usk Valley to the southern tip of the Black Mountains. It is also part of the route of the South Wales Three Peaks challenge, which takes in the nearby Blorenge, Sugar Loaf and Skirrid mountains.
Abergavenny is the nearest large town, around 3 and a half miles away. It can easily be reached by car or using local public transport. It’s also home to the closest railway station which lies on the main Manchester to South Wales route; journeys to Cardiff are generally hourly and take around 45 mins.
The town has plenty to offer both residents and visitors; the main shopping area is pedestrianised and features many well-known high street names as well as numerous local independents. There’s also an indoor market featuring the best locally sourced produce – much of which is also on show at the increasingly popular Food Festival generally held in September each year, but regretably not in 2020 due to Covid-19. Evening entertainment is also well-catered for with plenty of pubs and restaurants as well as the excellent Baker Street cinema.
For those looking for a cultural day out there are a handful of museums and river walks – plus of course the ruins of Abergavenny Castle, of which the keep is now Abergavenny Museum.
There is plenty of car parking available, including the vast Fairfield car park which is perched right on the edge of the shopping centre. You’ll also be spoiled for choice for your weekly shop with Tesco, Morrison’s and Waitrose all within a 10-minute drive.
The transport links from our Rossers Field development are excellent, allowing you to explore Wales and beyond. Take the A40 east and you’ll pass Raglan with its magnificent castle, Monmouth and its 13th century fortified bridge (the only one remaining in Great Britain) before heading across the border into the Wye Valley. Alternatively, head west on the A465 to visit The National Showcaves Centre for Wales at Dan-yr-Ogof or the beautiful Three Waterfalls walk at Pontneddfechan.
With all of this and much more on your doorstep, add Rossers Field, Govilon to your list and come and explore the wonders of Monmouthshire – the gateway to Wales.If you’d like to find out more about buying a new home on our Rossers Field development – or any other of our sites across South Wales call our Head Office on 01443 228 413 or email [email protected]
