National Trust takeover

This week the running of Tredegar House was officially handed over to the National Trust.

There has been a lot of work going on around us for the last few months, with big changes everywhere. Our doors are now painted a very fashionable dark grey, the entrance to the house has been moved to the large ornate gates between the units, Next door to us is now a tea, coffee and ice cream kiosk and we finally have nearby toilets!

As I understand it, the house will now be presented in three 'zones' with a focus on the 17th Century, Victorian and inter-war periods. There will be a unique ‘Housewarming’ event, which I'm looking forward to on 24th June, which will allow open access to the entire house for the first time.

The Trust has plendged to spend £4.5 million on repairing and improving every aspect of the site, including re-opening the orchard gardens, and restoring the historic walled gardens. So there's lots to look forward to.
It's a great day out for out all the family, do pop in on us when you visit!
