The Old Hamlet of Llanmartin lies within the ward of Langstone and falls under the jurisdiction of Newport City Council.  It is an active rural rural farming community
It lies between the eastern boundary of Langstone to the village of Wilcrick  It extends north to Llandevaud.  Residents enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside with its diversity of wild life but the M4 motorway is only two miles away and the Severn Bridge can be seen from many homes.
At its centre is the Hamlet Green created by the residents from old waste ground. It has a parish church and church hall. an old castle, a country pub and restaurant, commercial stables and an ironworks craft centre.
The houses ribbon along a stretch of the Magor Road and along Pencoed Lane as far as the T  junction where another area of green has been created.  It then continues to Pencoed Castle  There are a number of new homes at the junction with the Magor Road.  Most properties are hidden from clear sight but they explode with colour and diversity beyond their front gates
