We visited this property on Saturday and had a very good afternoon. The staff are all very friendly and willing to talk about the history of the house and family which were very interesting stories. It will be interesting too to return in a few years to see how they develop those rooms which are quite bare at the moment. The cafe is very pleasant though service was a bit slow and it felt as if they need more tables! A walk around the lake and throught the park was a nice addition to the day -though don't expect too much from the gardens they 're not like some NT propreties their with large spectacular gardens.

The house is fantastic - gardens will be wonderful when finished. Even the adults can dress up if they want to.

We are very fortunate to live not too far away from Tredegar House and so it is our local NT property. We have visited very regularly since the NT took over (we are members) and the work that they are doing to present the house and it's history is fantastic. Visited once again today and had a thoroughly interesting tour of the house. There is always something that I haven't noticed before. There was a lady who gave a short talk about the Morgan family in the hall today and that was very interesting. The staff are all very keen to point out interesting features and tell you about the colourful history of the house. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Following our tour of the house we sat in the gardens for several hours (it was sunny!) and enjoyed a picnic. There were lots of people going through and families having fun but it was strangely rather peaceful. The NT provide deckchairs and wooden children's games on the lawns. The gardens had spectacular displays of tulips and indeed a lot of time and effort seems to have gone into the gardens more recently. We have enjoyed several special events over the past year or so. Christmas was lovely with the house decorated splendidly and the most wonderful Father Christmas for the children to visit. We also went to one of the 1930s evenings with cocktails and jazz music which we enjoyed very much. Thankfully, the party atmosphere wasn't quite as wild as those put on by Evan Morgan back in the 1930s (but make sure you ask about the house in his time!!!)

We visited Tredegar House a couple of times last year; the first time they had only just opened for the season and all we could see was the basement! Upon returning a few weeks later we got to view the whole house which has changed a lot since it was built, experiencing different incarnations including being a school at one point. The grounds are quite large and worth the visit.

We visited the house on a beautiful sunny day when everyone seemed to be there. The gardens were lovely with people picnicking and enjoying the sunshine. We had to park in the overflow car park but there was no shortage of parks.
Despite so many people the house was not crowded and we enjoyed looking through it. Not all rooms have been returned to their original state with some rooms remaining as school rooms and some left empty and not all the house was open. We didnt pay as we are members - which turns out good value for money but a family ticket would be £20 to see the whole property. A whole day could be spent at this property walking and enjoying the gardens. Not bad value compared to some places.
