Monmouth: Relax in scenic Wales

City life, while attractive to some, is not for everybody. Some people prefer to live in more rural areas, which are traditionally quieter and more laidback than urban settlements.

For people in the UK who seek this type of location to call home there is no shortage of attractive little market towns to explore. Property for sale in Monmouth may allow you to live in such a place.

The Welsh town is located close to the English border and has a population of approximately 8,000 people, meaning it is much more peaceful than the busy city.

It is also a place with a rich heritage that dates back to Roman times, the Roman fort that still stands in the town being a fantastic example of this. As well as this the local area is also reported to be the birthplace of Henry V.

In terms of modern history, Monmouth has the Savoy Theatre, which is believed to be the oldest working theatre in the whole of Wales.

The surrounding area offers residents the chance to get out into the countryside with numerous walking routes available from the town centre. And for those who prefer two wheels as opposed to two feet, there are plenty of different cycle paths that traverse the local landscape.

People who are looking to move with a family may also be interested in the educational options available in Monmouth.  Monmouth Comprehensive School serves the local community as do Kymin View, Osbaston, and Overmonnow primary schools.

Independent establishments Monmouth School and Haberdashers' Monmouth School for Girls are also available options for parents moving to the area.
