Tredegar House Country Park CMC Site, Newport, NP10 8TW, Tel 01633815600

To Find Site:- Leave M4 at junction 28. If coming from the east on the slip road continue to roundabout, don’t take filter lane to left. At roundabout take A48 which veers off to the left and is signed for Tredegar House. At next roundabout take the first left into Pencarn Way. At next roundabout take first left and follow signs to Tredegar House, once on the estate follow signs to campsite.

Tredegar House CMC site is located in the grounds of the Grade 1 listed House of the same name. It is about two miles from Newport and about seven miles from Cardiff, please see below for details of how to access these two places. The site is open all year and accepts non-members and tent campers. The site is terraced and has many lovely mature trees. Those wanting to receive satellite TV will have to select their pitch carefully.  The site has 79 pitches, 64 on hardstandings and further four serviced pitches also on hardstanding. There are 11 grass pitches plus 6 tent pitches. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps. They use CEE17 blue connectors which twist and lock in the electric bollard. There is one toilet block which is of the usual Club standards. Included in the building are a small laundry and an enclosed dishwash area with two sinks. There are two water and waste water points plus the motorhome service point next to the toilet block, this still requires heavy metal covers to be removed. Chemical toilet disposal is available at all three service points. There are no play facilities for children on site but these are available in the adjacent park. The site does have WiFi but during our stay I found the signal pretty dire and that was with a WiFi booster aerial.  This site is in fairly close proximity to the M4 motorway so there is always a hum of traffic noise which some may find annoying although personally we got used to it after a while. Reception sells a few essentials and next door is an information room with details of local places to visit.

Whether you find this site a convenient place to stay will depend on what you plan to do during your stay and whether you wish to use public transport. There is a half hourly bus service to Cardiff which takes about forty minutes. However this is a fair walk away of about a mile and might not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. The alternative is to take a taxi into Newport and then take the train to Cardiff. It is a shame that the Club and the National Trust can’t come to an agreement to provide a shorter route to the bus stop. For shopping there is a large Asda about a mile from the site which also does fuel. There is a small convenience store not far from the House entrance which is a bit nearer. There is also a fish and chip shop here as well. Access to Tredegar Country Park is free and there is a nice walk around the lake. Next to the House (entrance fee) there are some craft shops and a nice café.
