Whilst preparing this blog, we were lucky to be able to interview one local resident who has not only set up home on Pettingale Road, but also runs his business from his property.

Dan Beckett who is the Managing Director of Crow Valley Accountancy has lived and worked from his address in Pettingale Road since 2014.

Dan states “We decided to buy a house to Pettingale Road for several reasons, but the main reason being that my wife was brought up in Croesyceiliog from a young girl and she knows the area very well. The house we chose is on a large plot and there is plenty of scope to extend and improve the house in time. We have good neighbours and the schools all have very good reputations, which is a bonus for us. There is no passing traffic on the street and we can always park our car”
