Wales

Wales is a beautiful country, probably best known for its stunning coast line and mountainous national parks, Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast. House prices are extremely reasonable in most parts of Wales, making it an attractive proposition for people looking for the “Good Life”. Houses with land and smallholdings are readily available and more affordable than in some of the more expensive counties in England.

Cardiff is one of the main employment centres in Wales and is home to the Cardiff Millennium Stadium which has played host to many famous sporting events including the Olympics and the 6 Nations. Wales is also home to the National Velodrome in Newport.
