Idyllic new homes for every type of buyer in coastal Wales

Posted 24 December 2013

Wales is famous for its awesome coastline - from rugged cliff-top paths above wild and remote beaches to gentle sandy coves and traditional seaside resorts. People lucky enough to live on Wales's stunning coastline will never be far from a fantastic beach - and several housebuilders currently have new homes in superb coastal locations for buyers planning to relocate there.

This is just a small selection of the current developments available across coastal Wales, moving up from the south to the north:

Just a couple of miles from the centre of the coastal city of Swansea in South Wales, Barratt Homes has a range of contemporary one-, two- and three-bedroom houses and apartments at Copper Quarter. Priced from £107,500 to £152,995 and set in a pleasant riverside spot, the development incorporates outside living areas, parking courts and riverside walks. The development has a convenient location close to schools, shops and leisure facilities, and with good transport links nearby, including the M4 and public transport, placing the Welsh capital of Cardiff within easy reach.

In Pembrokeshire in southwest Wales, a mile and a half outside the sizeable town of Milford Haven in a rural spot, Persimmon Homes has created The Fairways. Ranging from one-bedroom flats to four-bedroom houses priced from £107,995 upwards, the development offers attractive country views and if buyers can commit before Christmas they will enjoy prices of up to £10,000 less than they would pay in January.

Set in pretty countryside near the coast in northeast Wales, Charles Church Developments has released new homes at Alltami Heath on the edge of Buckley, a quaint yet lively town in Flintshire. Situated on the A549, with the larger A55 passing close by, the popular seaside town of Rhyl is 26 miles away, while commuters easy access to Chester (12 miles away), Birkenhead (20 miles), Liverpool (21 miles) and even Manchester (47 miles). Offering two- to four-bedroom homes from £129,995, Alltami Heath is close to Buckley's many shops and amenities including a leisure centre, independent businesses, a supermarket, dentists, doctors, a library and pubs. The housebuilder is offering 100% part exchange at this development, as well as a shared equity scheme.

Just a few miles down the road from Buckley in Oakenholt, Persimmon Homes has another new development due for release this winter called The Oaks. Offering a range of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, potential buyers can register for updates online.

Macbryde Homes has a range of three-bedroom townhouses and four-bedroom detached properties at Victoria Park in Llandudno Junction, on the edge of lovely countryside yet just minutes from the A55, offering easy access across North Wales.

Coming soon just outside the lively university town of Bangor, Redrow has a brand new development called Goetre Uchaf - including two-bedroom starter homes, three-bedroom family homes, and four-bedroom executive houses. Set apart from the busy town centre, it is in a superb spot for commuters and has sports and leisure facilities nearby. The A55 trunk road is minutes from the development, offering easy access to Holyhead in 30 minutes, Conwy and Colwyn Bay in around 20 minutes, and Chester in just over an hour. Bangor's town centre has the longest High Street in Wales, while the station offers direct services to Chester, and services to London in just over three hours.
