Day out at Tredegar House Newport

Last Bank Holiday the other half and I decided we would like to take the kids somewhere different for a change and somewhere I hadn’t been in years was Tredegar House in Newport.So we packed up the car with a picnic the kids and half a ton of crap the kids decided they just had to have(!) and set off,mild panic halfway there as I momentarily forgot the route,so the hubby got onto good old Google maps which jogged my memory and we got there in around 20 mins.The carpark was full when we arrived however they had opened an overflow carpark next to it on a field.Parking was £2 for the whole day and unless you’re actually visiting the house itself (which we didn’t on this occasion) then that’s all you pay.To visit the property would be £18 for a family ticket so we thought that could be a whole other day out.

We had a fantastic day out,the kids played hide and seek in the huge trees.A little play on the park – which was very busy and stuffed their faces with icecream at the small kiosk while Daddy and I had a coffee.The swans and cygnets were beautiful to watch.All in all it’s well worth a visit if you’re in the area!

  1. I mentioned going here the other day, I can’t remember what is there. Is there only one park? Is it a small one or is it quite big? Sorry for all the random questions! I know the other side of the roundabout there’s a nice park, so thought if Tredegar house park wasn’t up to much I could go there! This is the first post I’ve read on Tredegar house!
