  • Abergavenny
  • Abersoch
  • Colwinston
  • Laugharne
  • Monmouth
  • Penarth
  • Presteign
  • Saundersfoot
  • St. Davids

Mumbles was picked as the best place in Wales.

The guide assesses a wide range of factors, from jobs, schools and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops, in order to compile the definitive top locations to live.

Swansea was found to be one of the most affordable cities for first time buyers in the UK last year.

While the Sunday Times Best Places to Live looks beyond house prices, we know that the process of getting a mortgage means that finding your dream home can be a nightmare.

Whether you are considering using Government schemes to buy for the first time, or are looking to remortgage ahead of the Bank of England's next interest rate rise, using a broker can help your chances and make the process as smooth as possible.

With an estimated 1 in 4 people overpaying on their mortgage by £4,100 every year, even those homeowners lucky enough to be living in Mumbles or Abergavenney could potentially benefit from checking how much they could save.
