About The Locks

The Locks is a beautifully presented holiday home near Newport in South Wales. Around 20 minutes from both Cardiff and the Brecon Beacons National Park, the house is ideally located to combine the cosmopolitan delights of Wales' capital with the spectacular scenery of its countryside. However, it's not where it is but what it has that makes this property a true stand out. With seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the house easily sleeps up to ten people, with guests enjoying an indoor swimming pool, games room, massive flatscreen TVs with Sky and BT Sports packages, a cinema room, and lots more features that will ensure the fun never stops.

Some ideas to help make your stay at The Locks even more memorable include timing your visit to coincide with an international rugby game in Cardiff, testing your handicap on one of three world-class championship golf courses at The Celtic Manor, and beginning a day with a sunrise walk to the top of Pen y Fan, South Wales' highest peak. Newport hosts a fantastic food festival over the second week in October, a few weeks after the famous Abergavenny Food Festival which is only half an hour from The Locks. Live music abounds, and if you're into history, you have no shortage of magnificent castles to admire.

Of course, you may simply prefer to stay behind the gated entrance of The Locks for the duration of your stay. We wouldn't blame you. With so much on offer, there are endless ways for you, your family and your friends to amuse yourselves happily from the moment you arrive until you reluctantly drag yourself away, promising a return visit as soon as possible.

Location (Newport)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Locks is a modern detached home at the end of a gated drive. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • There are no steps from the drive into the central hallway, which gives level access to two ensuite bedrooms, a cloakroom, the dining room, the pool, a lounge, and the kitchen.
  • The huge kitchen/family room will be the backdrop for many holiday memories. The equipment is chef-standard and includes a utility room with an extra fridge and freezer to store drinks and groceries. The seating area has a 50-inch Smart TV and access to the indoor pool and rear patio.
  • Don't miss a minute of the action with an enormous flat-screen TV in the games room. Keep an eye on the football while playing on the American pool table, lounging on sofas, or drinking at your private bar.
  • Put on your favourite rom-com and settle down in the cinema room with its big screen and high-quality surround sound.
  • Both ground floor bedrooms are spacious doubles with queen-sized beds, ample storage, and ensuite shower rooms.
  • A wet room with a shower, WC and handbasin is next to the indoor pool.


  • Four of the upstairs bedrooms are doubles, with built-in storage and an ensuite shower room. All bedrooms have their own wall-mounted TV.
  • Bedroom Seven is under the eaves and ideal for a family with a double and two single beds.

Outside: The house has a gated driveway with space for four cars, and a patio with seating.
