Lovell Homes hosts showhome launch event at popular Newport development


Leading partnerships developer Lovell Homes has successfully launched its brand-new showhomes at its Locke Gardens development in Newport.

Locke Gardens, located off Baldwin Drive on the site of the former Llanwern Steelworks, will consist of a stunning range of 285 two, three, and four-bedroom homes, suitable for first-time buyers, growing families and downsizers alike.

The launch event took place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November, and saw local property seekers tour the development’s showhomes, a three-bedroom Lansdown and a four-bedroom Roseberry, as well as a marketing suite with an Inspirations room upstairs, where buyers can take a look at the wide variety of kitchen finishes, flooring, tiling and more that Lovell has on offer.

During the weekend, attendees were also able to enjoy barista-style coffee and pastries from a local coffee vendor, called Coffee Trike

Homebuyers can now book an appointment to meet with the sales team seven days of the week, visit Locke Gardens to look around the showhomes, and find out more about the range of properties that are available to purchase.

Julie Bowen, regional sales director at Lovell Homes, said: “We loved hosting this event at Locke Gardens for local homebuyers to enjoy, and are delighted to have opened the doors to our two wonderful showhomes.  

“Our Lansdowne style home is perfect for growing families, and as part of our Inspirations range features a brilliant garden pod, which can be used as an office for home workers or a relaxing yoga studio. Our showhome is designed using cool blues and greys, and features a lovely wildlife-themed children’s bedroom with a recurring llama motif. For those seeking more space is the Roseberry, which has been decorated much warmer in a gold and teal colour scheme. 

“The homes at Locke Gardens are in incredibly high demand, so we would encourage anyone who is interested in making the move to Locke Gardens to get in touch without delay to avoid missing out on a fantastic home, including a small selection of homes ready for a Christmas and New Year move.”

Locke Gardens is just four and a half miles away from the city centre of Newport, offering all the perks of city living, whilst only being a short drive from the beautiful Welsh countryside. 

Residents will be able to benefit from an abundance of supermarkets, pubs, cafes, shops, cinemas and theatres, primary and secondary schools, a medical centre and Royal Gwent Hospital, as well as the Friars Walk Shopping Centre.

Newport Train Station is only a 13-minute drive away, and Cardiff and Chepstow are both only a half hour drive away. Bristol is just 40 miles away, offering an easy commute with excellent road, rail and bus transport links.

Locke Gardens is being delivered by Lovell in partnership with Pobl. The development will consist of 500 properties, including 285 open market sale homes, 80 affordable homes and 135 shared ownership properties. 

Locke Gardens is part of Glan Llyn – a residential-led development being delivered by St Modwen. The £1 billion regeneration project is transforming the 600-acre brownfield site and creating a major new vibrant community for South Wales, with a total of 4,000 new homes being delivered alongside community infrastructure and green, open space.

This year, Lovell Homes achieved a five-star rating with the Home Builders Federation and gold for customer service with In-house Research, meaning an impressive 98 per cent of customers in the South Wales and South West would recommend Lovell to family and friends.

Locke Gardens is now open seven days a week, 10am to 5pm. To find out more and book your appointment or call the sales team on 01633 494 965.
