Explore the park at Tredegar House

Giant Redwood trees in the country park at Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales

A surviving fragment of a once majestic estate, the parkland at Tredegar House covers more than 90 acres. An oasis at the heart of a post-industrial landscape, the parkland provides a haven for locals and is beloved by our community and their four-legged friends alike.

A hidden gem... 

Our extensive parkland is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Sweeping lawns, a serpentine lake and dotted woodland are nestled between the motorway and Duffryn estate. 
 
Our open green spaces are popular with picnic lovers, runners and those who want to have a kick about. The shaded woodland is the perfect place for a moment of quiet and a breath of fresh air or a game of hide and seek for big and little kids alike. 
 
Keep an eye out for swans, coots and herons among a whole host of slippery underwater creatures in our lake. Swan watching is a popular past-time with our locals who track the progress of our cygnets every year.

Look out for..

  • Oak avenue - Once upon a time we had close to seven oak avenues at Tredegar House, splaying out from the mansion like the spokes of a wheel. Our last remaining one stretches out from the seventeenth century house gates and over the crest of the hill towards Ruperra Castle - once a summer home of the Morgan family. 
  • Wildlife - Bring your bird books and binoculars; our parkland is teeming with wildlife. Our lake is a favourite spot for grebes, swans, moorhens and a whole community of ducks. 
  • Sequoia redwoods - Towering over the parkland as a regal reminder of a bygone majestic age. Don't forget to touch the bark; its spongey feel is a favourite with little ones and adults alike. 
 
Four-legged friends are welcome at Tredegar House

Canine companions 

Dogs have always played a huge part in our parkland community. A popular dog walking destination where our four-legged friends are able to enjoy the fresh air and really stretch their legs.

Help us take care of this special place

In order for us to look after our gorgeous parkland we ask park users to adhere to three simple rules:

  1. No fishing in the lake. We are committed to conserving the ecology of the lake and the many animals who have found their home there. Fishing bait and discarded hooks and lines pose a significant threat to our wildlife. 
  2. Picnics only please! BBQs cause significant damage to our grassland and picnic tables and also pose an uncontrolled fire risk. We ask all users to refrain from bringing portable BBQs to our park. Alternatively, picnics are encouraged and there are numerous places to set up camp for an al fresco lunch. Refreshments are also available from the park kiosk.
  3. Parking in the carpark. We offer house, gardens and park visitors ample parking at the entrance to the property. We ask all park users to make use of these spaces and to refrain from parking anywhere else on site.
