Newport (sometimes called Newport Pembs) is a delightful seaside resort situated on the North Pembrokeshire Coast between Cardigan and Fishguard in the county of Pembrokeshire, South-West Wales. Founded in 1197, Newport has since grown into a popular seaside resort and visitors will be spoilt for choice with the numerous shops, craft shops and art galleries within the town centre. Although no longer a port town, its Welsh name 'Trefdraeth', meaning 'Town of the Beach' accurately describes Newports' location. Newport sits on the estuary of the River Nevern, providing magnificent views of Cardigan Bay and further afield toward the Llyn Peninsula. With just over 1,122 inhabitants, it provides a quiet yet exciting retreat for all the family.
Newport is a bright, friendly, and busy town, with a variety of shops catering to different needs. From craft shops to antique shops, book shops, souvenir shops, surfing and water-sports shops and quaint coffee shops for watching the world go by, with plenty of restaurants for something a little more filling. For keen artists, there are several art galleries to be visited within Newport, where you can appreciate some of the best art to come out of Wales for many a year.
