Wild trails at Tredegar House, near Newport and Cardiff

The south west front of Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales

With 90 acres of gardens and parkland, this is an ideal setting for getting away from it all. Take a walk along the avenues of majestic trees, or stroll around the lake and spot the varied wildlife.

If you want to get into running try the Tredegar House parkrun. These are held every Saturday morning at 9am, meeting in the car park. Finish by rewarding yourself in the Brewhouse tearoom.
 
Alternatively, if you head out to the west of Cardiff you can visit Lanlay Meadows. This small, but beautiful, area is perfect for short circular walks.
