Caldicot has been named among the best value places to live for people commuting to Bristol in a recent study.

A study by property website Zoopla looked at the places within an hour of the five of the UK’s major cities - London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh which provide the best value for living and travelling costs.

For people working in Bristol, Newport topped the poll, with the combined cost coming out at £10,166.86. Caldicot was fourth, with a combined average mortgage and train season ticket cost of £12,061.59.

The research assumed someone living in a two or three-bedroom home, with a 15 per cent deposit for their mortgage.

Travel times and annual railcard costs were taken from the National Rail Enquiries website.

Laura Howard, who is consumer expert at Zoopla, said: “The past decade has seen significant property price growth in prime London commuter belt towns, but our analysis still picks out pockets across South East England that represent affordable value for commuters.”

Other towns on the list for most affordable commuter town for Bristol are Highbridge and Burnham, Bridgewater, and Weston-Super-Mare.
