Why stay here ...

Tredegar House Country Park Club Site is ideally located within a mile of the M4 motorway and only 12 miles from Cardiff. Complementing the house superbly is the Country Park itself, boasting a 17th century orangery, gardens, woodland and adventure playground open throughout the year. The 7-acre caravan site boasts an exquisite ornamental lake and offers 79 generously sized pitches. Take the opportunity to visit Tredegar House as it has often been described as one of the architectural wonders of Wales, and recognised as one of the most significant 17th century houses in the whole of the British Isles. The house is open between Easter and September.

Within convenient distance of Tredegar House Country Park Club Site is the beautiful city of Cardiff, with its medieval castle, National Museum, Bay Development and vast shopping centre. Close to the caravan park, you can visit the restored Transporter Bridge, Pwll Mawr (Big Pit mining museum) and the lovely Wye Valley. The bus stop is about a 25 minute walk from site and the service is frequent and good value, allowing you to conveniently explore the local area without the need for a car. A favourite of visitors is a trip to the small village of Ystradfellte, approximately 1 hour away, where a 5 mile walk can be undertaken to the four waterfalls in the Brecon Beacons - well worth the effort to witness these stunning falls.

Another wonderful stay

Tredegar House Country Park Caravan Club Site
We returned to Tredegar following our first visit a couple of months ago, and I will continue to return there for the following reasons. 1. The location just off the M4. As previous members have commented, don't bother following Satnav directions. Follow the brown Tredegar House signs, but then keep your eyes open for the small Caravan Club site signs as the road is a windy one!! Situated close to the grounds of Tredegar is wonderful. Within 5 minutes you are walking over vast grounds, wooded areas, a lovely lake, really peaceful!. When I say peaceful, the only noise I heard was from the boy racers going up the A48 close to the site. Not all the time though. 2. The site. Nice pitches, really clean toilets and showers, albeit a bit dated, plenty of places to fill up water and waste, and also chemical disposal. 3. The wardens. When I say wardens, we had a temporary warden there during our stay called Kenny. What a fabulous bloke. Friendly, helpful ,loved to have a chat, and did anything for you. He was on the go all the time. He certainly made our stay enjoyable. He is due to be a Grandad soon I believe from one of our conversations and I wish your family all the best Kenny! We will be back soon Tredegar!

A lovely stay and warm welcome……don’t rely on your sat nav!

Tredegar House Country Park Caravan Club Site
We arrived with a warm welcome and a conversation about sat nav directions. It took us 20 mins to find the entrance to the country park and then the site, signage is a little unclear. The sat nav wanted us to enter through a closed gate very near a busy roundabout, that looked as if it’s been closed for years. Lesson learnt, don’t rely on your sat nav. The site is situated within National Trust country park and house. Lovely walks around the lake and park. A visit to Tredegar house is well worth it in my opinion.some eating places nearby. The site is very nice and pleasant, there is some road noise in the distance, but it never bothered us at all. Facilities are adequate and kept very clean. We really enjoyed our two night stay and would return. There is mention of theft from this site, and we were asked if we had bikes, but we didn’t bring them. It’s not the only site that has this problem, and I think it’s good that the wardens draw your attention to the possibility of theft. We just didn’t leave anything outside to tempt them with. On the whole a great little stop off for us, on our way to Devon. Enjoyed it.

One star reviews very unfair!

Tredegar House Country Park Caravan Club Site
Just returned from a week on this site and, having read some of the reviews beforehand, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to face! However, we had a lovely week and I feel that the 1* reviews were very unfair as was "the worst club site I've stayed at" review. The pitches are very spacious, the facilities are very clean, the wardens are welcoming and the NT parkland that the site is situated in is lovely.We also found it quiet and peaceful. A short while ago, we stayed on a so-called 5* site and Tredegar House is far superior to that particular site. Don't let previous reviews put you off!

Not as bad as some reviews.

Tredegar House Country Park Caravan Club Site
We did arrive before the 1 pm arrival time, due mainly to a very easy drive there and me missing the time after using three other sites with 12 noon arrivals. We were told in no uncertain terms we could not wait in the car park and should use the nearby ASDA car park. The attitude felt over the top and with the sheer number of signs around was not very welcoming and more than any other site we have visited. Possibly a bit more tact is needed. The site itself is pretty much club standard, but on a hillside with mostly level pitches although it is looking a bit tired and may need some work to update it, our pitch had very a thin grave layer left on the hard standing with some bare patches The toilet block uses a code which is needlessly long, although I appreciate the need for one and the cleaning times looked a bit long. Returning in an evening means you have to open and close two gates and the barrier, although I accept this may be due to NT requirements and not the club but it is a niggle.. There is some road noise but not enough to worry us, but overall I think the site is well worth visiting and there is plenty to do in the area and nearby Cardiff. There is an ASDA very close for food and fuel and the house itself is well worth a visit. The criticism is more on niggles rather than serious faults so we will be back and certainly the one star rating given before this is excessive in our view.
