Bulmore or Bullmoor (Welsh: Y Pwll Mawr) is the name give to a hamlet or cluster of houses in the south-east of Caerleon ward of the city of Newport, South Wales. The name is derived from the Welsh Y Pwll Mawr meaning The Large Pool.
In 1934 an area of land forming part of Bulmore Farm was purchased and an open-air swimming pool known as Bulmore Lido which was built and opened in July of that year. Situated alongside the River Usk, the 8½ acre complex comprising large adult pool and smaller children's pool with adjoining lawns, became Newport's favourite "out-of-town resort".
