Visited the park and house today with my partner. We had a great time! The house and park is so well looked after, and all staff very knowledgeable and polite. Missed the attic tours as they were fully booked. House is a must see! We also had a coffee in the brew house, the staff there were also polite and... More

Tredegar House was a great day out. Despite living in Cardiff for many years I'd managed never to visit - but we had visitors and a forecast of rain so we decided to go along. The House is owned by Newport Council but managed by the National Trust. The formal gardens are pretty but not extensive though the less formal... More

Dogs are very welcome at this property. They are welcome in the formal gardens and the Brew House tea room where four tables are reserved for owners and their dogs. The gardens are a delight and the mineral garden is unusual and adds to the history of the house which has three histories - Tudor, Victorian and the l930's. It... More

This house is set off the beaten track, but holds events like car boot sales on a Sunday! The building is set in an urban vast parkland with loads to walk, see and discover on walks around the grounds. The tea room sells seasonal welsh food and you can pick up welsh cakes etc in the shop!

We spent a very pleasant few hours today here in the delightful Summer weather. Haven't been for some time, although we live a short distance away. Had coffees and Welsh cakes first in the lovely cafe, served by friendly young lady. Then had a long walk around the grounds, passing the lake, through the woods,and right around the perimeter and...

My family and I visited Tredegar House recently as we are members of the National Trust and wanted to see what work had been done since the Trust took it over from the local Council. Since our last visit a lot of improvements have been made but it is obvious that there is still a long way to go -... More

Everything you need for a lovely afternoon out. First walked around the gardens then called in the orangery for a strawberry cream tea for £5. (beautiful scone and tea, jam tasty but very runny would not stay on my scone!). Then we explored the house. Lovely guides and plenty of written information, free to sit on furniture downstairs. Then a... More

I come here every year for picnics with my family and friends. It's such a safe environment for children to play. The park is well-equipped to entertain the children, plenty of space to play football and run around. The only downside is the number of (dog) people who allow their dogs to run around and assume that every child will... More

I visited here a few years ago before the NT took it on and noticed vast improvement in the house and gardens. Renovation work continues, so it can only get better. It is a lovely collection of building and out houses, and some of the detail in the main house is amazing. As usual the informative guides dotted around the... More

Visited Tredegar country park located at Tredegar house today. What a lovely chilled way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It is well maintained, with beautiful trees and lots of wild life. Walked around the lake, which takes you through a wooded area. Which was lovely and cool for my dog. Nice atmosphere with people picnicking and generally chilling out. Nice... More
