“Family Treasure Trove”

Bedwellty House and Park
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Tredegar
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 June 2013

A treasure hunt is always a lot of fun and there's plenty to keep the whole family looking at Bedwellty - from the gates that come with a potted history to set you up you can just take a quiet walk round or really engage with the house and the gardens. Used as a wedding venue, the house also has a range of exhibitions which are family friendly, and no, if you are looking at the pictures the man with a bucket on his head is not real! The cupcakes liked it though:) There is an Ice House, a Walled Garden and the largest piece of coal in the world, wood sculptures, views, birdsong and a pavillion. And a jolly nice conservatory that makes that much more effort with their food than a lot of places. There is disabled parking right by the main building but a word of warning - its not all flat so if you are helping to push a wheelchair eat three weetabix!

I'd certainly recommend the cafe for groups with small children. Various amenities have thoughtfully been provided for them. The afternoon teas are excellent value, although the scones not so fresh on a Sunday as they might have been. Staff were friendly but not very efficient.

The park and gardens are lovely, especially if you get to see them when it's not raining.

The bar in the 'Carriage Room' was very well priced, but the staff let it down.

I'm not from anywhere near Tredegar and when we were ready to leave Bedwellty House, just before 7pm, there was no clear exit strategy. The front reception desk was closed. I asked the bar staff to call a taxi and instead they rummaged around for numbers (three) for us to try calling ourselves. None of the three numbers connected us to an available taxi service. I'd really have expected a function room facility such as this to have a regular taxi pick-up firm organised for their guests.

There was a strong smell of bleach in odd places.

Beautiful grounds and some moving testimony of a culture that only those involved in mining could understand fully

If you live in or near Tredegar you have to go to Bedwellty house for sunday dinner..the food is out of this world. Me and my family have been going here for the last 12 months...its a hidden gem ..but make sure you book in advance as you cant just walk in and order sunday lunch...once visited never forgotten.

My family and I took my wife to Bedwellty House for afternoon tea on mother`s day. We had a loverly afternoon, good atmosphere and service, plenty of sandwiches and nice cakes and scones with ample jam and cream and as much tea as we could drink. There was also a harpist playing some very relaxing background music.All of this for a very reasonable price. We have also visited this historical house for Sunday lunch on more than one occasion and always been very impressed. I would recommend this house and the tea rooms to any visitors to South Wales or any local people. If you have not already visited then I can highly advise you to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised by what you will find.
