Bettws (Welsh: Betws) is an electoral district (ward) and coterminous community (parish) of the city of Newport. It is one of the largest housing estates in Europe.

The ward is bounded by Malpas to the east, the city boundary with Torfaen to the north, Rogerstone to the west, and the M4 motorway and Allt-yr-yn to the south.

The estate sits on and around Bettws Hill, and was built around St. David's Church which is the likely origin of the name 'Bettws' (private chapel).

The estate was built in the 1960s, and the large majority of houses are identical. 51.8% of housing is privately owned, and 42.6% is rented from either the Newport City Council or local housing associations, such as Charter Housing.

The roads in the estate are all named after rivers.

The estate comes under much criticism (sometimes unfairly) from residents elsewhere in the city, due its reputation as a focal point for anti-social behaviour.

Bettws RFC is a rugby union team playing in the Welsh Division
