Admire the autumnal views at Tredegar House this month as the house, gardens and parkland are transformed into wash of red and gold. With so much to see and do, here are our top picks of what to you should get up to on your visit.

Welly walks

Soak up the beauty of this cosy season by wrapping up warm, pulling on a pair of trusty wellies and taking a stroll around 90 acres of gardens and parkland.

Crunch your way down Oak Avenue or take the weight off your feet on one of our natural benches and admire the view of Tredegar house from afar. Wander around the lake where the woodland provides the perfect setting for those looking to get messy with some puddle jumping.

Grab your wellies and crunch through the Autumn leaves in the gardens and parkland.

Autumn flavours

Take a trip to the Brewhouse Tearooms and sample some of our delicious seasonal recipes, straight from the National Trust Cookbook.

From mid -September our menu will be packed full of flavour; from our warming butternut, pepper and chilli soup or vegetable and coconut curry to the fresh but filling pearl barley salad and herby sausage roll, there is something for even the pickiest pallets.

We’re also going gluten free with our lemon drizzle cakes, apple crumble muffins, cheese scones and chocolate brownies.


Hallowe’en half-term

It wouldn’t be Autumn at Tredegar House without a good dose of Hallowe’en fun. Families will be able to get stuck in with pumpkin carving, biscuit decorating, creepy crafts and mysterious trails throughout half-term.
