The cheese is so tasty and full of flavour. I've bought the cheese for myself a number of times and decided to buy a gift set for a friend. I odered through the website which was easy to use. Can't fault the customer service. Friendly staff.

Pontypool Park

Reviewed By bearrobertconnorbear - Cwmbran, United Kingdom

I have visited this Park Many times. Its really big and got lots of facilities ranging from tennis courts, outdoor bowling Green, Skate board park for all the keen skate boarders and trick cyclists. Childrens play area, Home to the famous Pontypool rfc. There is also the run in the park every sunday for all you fitness people. Lovely Place. Pontypool Council need to wake up and utilise this fantastic park with more event. Steam and classic car shows would work as well as more music. Make car parks in Pontypool Free like cwmbran and see the difference. Support your Local traders and bring the future in to Pontypool. Sorry for going on but this is a fantastic Park. People naturally wander into Pontypool Centre to check the shops out.there is a leisure Centre at the park with Cafe and Sports utilities. Also Parking there.

Myself and six friends travelled with Gibbons Coaches from 16th-20th April to Southport staying at The Talbot Hotel. The suttle bus was a few minutes late however we meet the main coach as planned. There was a delay due to a couple of passengers not being collected as arranged. However we still arrived at the hotel in good time to still have chance to still see some of Southport. We were glad to have a full day in Southport the next day, and throughly enjoyed our visit to Liverpool, however we would have liked to have stayed longer. On Thursday we visited Ormskirk, which was lovely little town with an excellent market. On Friday we left planned and arrived back in Bridgend on time. Our driver was Tony who is an excellent driver who drived safely and the coach was very comfortable. I have only praise for Gibbons as this was a budget holiday however it was first class.

Pontymoile Basin

Reviewed By kaiaetc - Pontypool, United Kingdom

Finally stopped here for breakfast on the way back from our frequent canal walks. We both had bacon, sausage and black pudding rolls from the barge café. So cheap and the bacon was actually cooked properly, which is normally rare. Not too chewy, not fatty, just about right, and so soft. There's clean public toilets and free parking too, and such lovely long, picturesque walks with good wheelchair access although the bridge could be a problem for some wheelchair users as could the path that isn't tarmacked. A local haunt that is used by locals, tradesmen, walkers, cyclers, boaters and travellers alike.

Beauty Oasis Day Spa & Salon

Reviewed By walkinggirl2018 - Abergavenny, United Kingdom

What a delight to be able to return to an oasis of calm in these difficult times. As always the staff were courteous and put me completely at my ease. The special measures in place were calmy and clearly explained and I was completely comfortable being there and having a body massage. Jess has certainly not lost her touch while not working????. I have booked further sessions and am looking forward to returning.
