Tredegar House is one of the architectural wonders of Wales and one of the most significant late 17th-century houses in the whole of the British Isles. The Property is now in the guardianship of the National Trust who took on a 50 year lease commencing in 2012. 

Situated within 90 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, this delightful red brick house provides an ideal setting for a fantastic day out.

For more than 500 years the house was home to one of the greatest Welsh families, the Morgans, later Lords Tredegar. The Morgan family owned more than 40,000 acres in Monmouthshire, Breconshire and Glamorgan at the end of the 18th century. Their lives impacted on the population of south-east Wales socially, economically and politically and influenced the heritage of the area.

Step inside the house and immerse yourself in the sumptuous style of a 17th-century wedding and the grandeur of the glitziest room in Wales. Play parlour games and figure out just exactly what those gadgets were used for in a 19th-century kitchen.

The stunning staterooms are adorned with fine paintings, carvings and elaborate ceilings illustrating the opulence of William Morgan, the builder of the house. Visitors today can discover what life was like for those who lived above and below stairs.       

With more than 500 years of history there's plenty to discover.
