Gwent Private Schools & Special Schools

WELCOME TO GWENT, WALES, UK

For anyone planning a move to or within Gwent in South East England we have collated information below about different places to live, schools, estate agents and other information we think useful for relocating within this fantastic Gwent .

Offering some of the best living anywhere in Great Britain, Gwent 's famous British cities and towns include Abergavenny, Monmouth and Caerphilly.

Gwent has a great choice of high quality UK private schools, beautiful countryside, lots of activities and excellent housing - with a fantastic range of different properties to call home, from country mansions and estates, cottages and bungalows to new build executive housing, family townhouses and apartments.

"Whether you are a keen cyclist, walker, bird watcher, history buff, photographer or simply fancy a day out with the family, Gwent has a lot to offer. Landscapes in Gwent are emphasised by the low horizon, flat landscape, and big skies (often enhanced by dramatic cloudscapes, sunrises and sunsets) give the Levels a unique ethereal quality. The small towns dotted along its valleys feature a good range of places to stay, eat and drink, while you delve in." Visit Wales

Gwent sits on the coast, opening up to the Bristol Channel whilst bordering the Welsh counties of Glamorgan and Breckonshire. Along the English border, Gwent borders Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. 

The Gwent official blazon presents a wreath of colours sat on top of mountains, flagged either side by steel collard Dragons breathing flames. Underneath it reads ‘Unbed a Rhyddid’ which translates to ‘Unity and Freedom’. The collars of the dragons signify Gwent’s links to the steel industry whilst the green and white colours link to the Tudor kings of Wales.  

Gwent has been a musical base for some of the world’s most famous indie bands! Coldplay, Oasis, Queen and Simple Minds have all recorded hits at Rockfield Studio in Monmouth, Gwent!
