We have just visited Tredegar House for the first time although have been long standing members of the NT. Although this property has not long been in the NT portfolio they have quickly stamped their mark here. A new theme with the Trust is the 10 minute talk before you make your tour which was presented very well, it also gives you a better knowledge of what to expect as you go round. The NT seem to also be taking a more tactile view of things and you can in some cases touch and hold items. The gardens where also very well tended and looked in great condition. On a last note I hope the person whos keys we found in the garden got them back ok, the NT staff were really proactive in trying to find out who they belonged to, well done.

It's hard to believe that the National Trust has only been involved here for just over a year but already they have improved things to make it well worth a visit. Of course, there is still much to do and the signage and information for visitors need to be improved but the room guide volunteers are very friendly and are a mine of information about the chequered history of the Morgan family and the subsequent uses to which the house was put..

The well kept gardens are very attractive and the walk around the lake should not be missed. The cream tea we had in the tea room was the best we have had in yonks.

All in all, this is well worth a visit and if you are looking for a 'new' NT property to see, give it a try and I am sure you won't regret it.

Excellent day out for all the family as there is something for everyone at this historic house and gardens set in large private gardens. Also has a quality children's play area and many picnic tables in the gardens. The very highly maintained house can be toured with help of very informed guides and there is a very good quality Welsh-themed tea room/ restaurant attached to it.
Car parking is on site and the place is very convenient just a very short drive from the M4

Having been to Tredegar Park and House many times before
( pre NT) I was pleasantly surprised to discover new parts on our recent visit. The gardens in particular were a revelation as I did not know the extent of them. There is still a lot that can be improved but there is a great base to work from. The house itself was different to before but I think the props and hands on items making it more appealing to the average visitor but maybe not to the connoisseur. But it should be remembered that the house has a variety of uses and has not be maintained as a 'palace'.

I've been coming here for years but this is my first visit since the NT took over.
It was lovely to see so many families on this lovely sunny day picnicking and playing, making the most of the lovely and safe open spaces. Granted you have to watch out around the lake for children and dogs alike taking an unwanted dip!!

I can't comment on the house as I've never been inside but the facilities in the grounds have come on in leaps and bounds. The little kiosk by the park is finally open and selling drinks, Ice creams and sausage rolls. The cafe and court yard are also lovely for lunch and I will be bringing the parents here next time they visit. It's a shame parking has increased from £1to £2 especially when you're local but I guess they have to pay for the improvements somehow. Personally I feel the entrance fee to the house is a bit steep and it would be nice if once a month they could have a reduced rate for locals.

Not much else has changed from the outside but this is certainly a great day out for the family to picnic, play and explore and for couples alike!!
