We stopped for a break on our way back to Devon from Pembrokeshire. It was a grand place. The house was impressive, and the hosts were brilliant and knowledgeable, we come back with many stories and histories about the house although our time in the house was limited. Some parts of the house were closed because of an infestation over... More

The house is very impressive. The scale of the place is amazing right from the entry through the stables to the housekeepers apartment - this must have been living on the scale of royalty. The rooms are outstanding and the room hosts very knowledgeable. If you have the choice of when to go it is best to be there on... More

The house has been set up to reflect the different periods of history it has gone through, which makes it very interesting for visitors. The rooms are laid out with items from the previous owners which gives it a very personal touch. All of the room guides are extremely knowledgeable and are approachable. They are able to bring the rooms... More

After seeing the signpost on our way to our cottage, a week ago, we decided to use some free time to see what Tredegar House offered. From the friendly welcome as we arrived to the time that we left three hours later, we had a lovely time. We started with an espresso coffee and set off. Firstly we strode around... More

Property is in the process of being restored but what has been done already is truly spectacular. There are plenty of staff on hand to give out extra bits of information about the history of the house. The gardens are beautifully maintained and there is a nice tea shop. Look forward to visiting again when next in the area

What a lovely place to visit!!! Have memories of this place as a child but can't recall ever going into the house. Lovely gardens and we visited on a very sunny day so garden games etc were available for the children. In the house we were welcomed by the staff and we found it very interesting... Both my children aged... More

I have been visiting this house since I was born (mum tells me so I know). It is great for a walk, to walk the dog, to take the kids, for a car boot sale, for a bike ride, for camping, for a game of football, for jogging, for a show and for a wedding. The grounds are vast, they... More

The parkland is open and free to access during daylight hours (parking is only a small charge if not NT member). The park has a lake with short circular walk and an avenue of trees (when viewed from the house you can appreciate how the avenue stretches off over the hill). Nice NT cafe with courtyard seating. The gardens and... More

We have had 2 visits to this property. Visit the interesting house (fee charged or National Trust membership) or large gardens (for free). Ideal for a picnic, walk around the lake, playing light outdoor games. Includes children's playground. Parking is £2 for non NT members. Just off M4.

Tredegar House is a great place to visit and the grounds which are free to the public are great to walk your dog and picnic in with a beautiful, tranquil walk around the lake. Monthly twenties/thirties event is held where participants can dress up, sip Prosecco and learn the Black Bottom and Charleston. Great fun.
