Set in 90 acres of parkland,Tredegar House is a fine example of a 17th century Charles the 2nd mansion, parts of the house even dating back to the 1500s. Take a guided tour of the staterooms and the servants quarters below stairs and you can get a feel of what life was like in those early days. Great for the gentry upstairs,but not too good for the servants below,( the parlour maid being paid about £10 per year!)
There is a gift shop, The Brewhouse where you can have a cooked meal and refreshments
In the grounds you will find a boating lake, woodland walks a childrens playground, and plenty of space for the kids to kick a ball.
The Park and Woodland Walk are open all year from 9.00am to dusk.
The House is open from Easter to the end of September, with House tours from Wednesday - Sunday.
Tours take approximately 1 ¼ hours starting at 11.00am, then hourly until 4.00pm.
Tredegar House is just two miles west of Newport city centre. Follow signs from the A48 or M4 exit 28.
