Alltwen Gardens is an exciting New Development of 3 bedroom semi- detached and 3 & 4 bedroom detached homes from award winning developer Redrow Homes.
Alltwen Gardens lies within easy reach of Pontardawe Town Centre and offers good retail and leisure facilities.
The New Heritage Collection combines the finest in traditional values with the very best in modern living, to provide a truly unique living experience. Beautifully crafted, traditionally styled exteriors would not look out of place in any historic setting, yet within the interiors are designed for the flow of modern life with an airy open plan that puts the kitchen in the heart of the modern family home.
Pontardawe has a cricket team, a rugby club and a football club. The playing fields adjoining the Pontardawe Leisure Centre at Parc Ynysderw are one of the UKs 471 King George Fields established as a memorial to King George V. They were officially transferred to their present site in 2003 and occupy the land which formally belonged to the tinplate works but is now owned and maintained by the local authority. The Cwmtawe Rugby 7ís competition, held at Parc Ynysderw, attracts entries from far and wide.
Pontardawe also has a very successful karate and kickboxing team who are members of the Welsh Contact Karate Association and train in Alltwen Community Centre.
There is also a Swim Wales swimming club.
On a hill overlooking the town is the local golf course which has view of the Brecon Beacons and Bristol Channel from the 16th hole.
Alltwen Gardens is well located to explore local historical sites of interest- some of the old collieries and mines in the area have been turned into museums, such as Cefn Coed colliery museum, and nearby Aberdulais Falls- a spectacular waterfall now owned by the National Trust- is the largest electricity generating water wheel in Europe.
The re-opening of the canal in this area together with the beautiful countryside provides a wealth of places to visit.
Pontardawe offers a range of shops along its High Street including convenience, bakery and drapers along with High Street banks, doctors, dentist and optician.

Redrow is one of the UK's leading residential and mixed-use property developers, aiming to be the developer of choice for customers, colleagues, land-owners, suppliers, subcontractors and investors. The company has a reputation for imaginative design, build quality and customer service, with the skills needed to complete a wide range of developments - from large greenfield sites to complex brownfield regeneration schemes.
Redrow has an extensive track record of acquiring brownfield and greenfield land without permission, then successfully steering it through the planning system so as to gain the relevant permissions for residential and mixed use developments. These include major urban extensions, new villages and sites ranging from 50 to over 2,000 homes.
We have our own in-house team of planning, technical and legal experts, and we have established long-term relationships with key partners outside the company. These agencies frequently assist in the promotion and delivery of major development schemes, ensuring maximum value for landowners.
