From bed and breakfasts to restaurants with rooms

A city known for its university and its cathedral, Newport is located on the River Usk, a mere 12 miles from Cardiff.  Host city for the NATO Summit and the Ryder Cup, it is a city that has made itself remarkable. 

From wildlife spotting on the 18th century canal to opera at The Riverfront theatre, the city’s working class movement for political reform in the 19th century has coloured its character in a wonderful and vibrant way that continues today.  It’s anarchic subculture is evident in its pop culture from absurdist rap to the legendary TJ’s rock venue where Kurt Cobain apparently proposed to Courtney Love.

With that backdrop, you can imagine that for those visiting Newport, it has much to offer.  History buffs can wander to the likes of Tredgar House, the National Trust property with a 90 acre park that’s ideal for leisurely walking, while the RSPB Newport Wetlands Reserve is the ideal introduction to Newport’s wildlife.

Newport’s history stretches much further back than its rebellious roots however.  Caerleon is the Roman fortress that guarded the region for more than 200 years, housing 5,000 soldiers… so make sure you visit before exploring the town’s many pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.  Llys Meddyg is a perfect example of a welcoming restaurant with rooms just minutes from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which means good food and excellent walking opportunities.

Ultimately, Newport still offers the warm welcome that Wales is so good at and Cnapan guest house is a beautiful example of that – listed in the Guide across its 30 year history.  It is all Welsh wool blankets and views of the gardens and mountains.  It is a family friendly destination and the kind of bed and breakfast that keeps you coming back again and again.
