Explore the park at Tredegar House
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...
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.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
