Read Newport Reviews
Newport is a little town with the larger Telford nearby. There are regular buses and I think the prices are decent, especially in comparison to if you lived in a city uni. There's lots of pubs and one main club in Newport, so the nightlife isn't like being in a city but on the student nights out it always gets super busy and social.
Newport is a relatively small town with a few basic shops to buy essential at, although there is a public bus which you can take to the Telford station and town centre. There is only one club and a few pubs. It is relatively cheap to live although the closest supermarket is Waitrose which is slightly more expensive than your average shop
