The small village with a big community.

Coed-y-Paen is a small but lively Welsh village in the county of Monmouthshire. It boasts a pub (the Carpenters Arms) and a church (Christchurch). Its Residents Association is very active through the year, organising events and generally bringing members of the community together in a warm and friendly setting.

The countryside around is stunning – gently rolling green hills, delightful pastureland and the Llandegfedd reservoir. Yet the village is conveniently located for getting to the large cities of Newport, Cardiff and Bristol.
