 So we did return, and although the site was much busier this time, the grass pitch we had was flat and spacious, the pitches were well-spaced, everything was maintained up to the usual Club standards and the staff were cheery and helpful.

Despite being almost full the site was quiet and calm and the dogs greatly appreciated the direct access to the country park.

We decided against visiting Newport itself, given the current situation, but had a pleasant walk from the 14 Locks Canal Centre a short drive away.

 This site has a great situation on the edge of the Tredegar House grounds and Country Park (National Trust), which you drive through to reach the campsite. Outside park opening hours there is a locked gate for which you are given a key at check-in. Access from the motorway was mostly straightforward, following David Klyne's directions below and checking on Google Earth in advance how to navigate the major roundabout.

We were fortunate to see the site at its best in the spring sunshine and found a pitch backing onto the (empty) tent area and the lake and open parkland beyond that. Once pitched up we were aware of some road noise but did not find this intrusive and enjoyed a peaceful overnight stay. Unfortunately on this occasion we did not have time to wander the Tredegar House grounds, but they looked very inviting, offering plenty of open space.

The Asda just down the road was very convenient for fuel and we also walked there along a good footpath to get a few provisions, which took 20 minutes or so (and we don't rush!).

Although on this occasion we were just passing through, we enjoyed our brief stay and intend to return to use the site as a base for visiting the area.

 Lovely site well laid out very clean facilities, level pitches with small stones on hardstanding.

Easy access to Tedegar house and grounds with good dog walking.

Very pleasant wardens.

 We found this a fantastic site, with excellent facilities and customer service. TV was a bit hit and miss, and our WIFI was also not so great. You do hear road noise from the A48M, but it did not spoil it for us. Because of the longish walk to a bus, we used the motorhome to drive to Cardiff East Park and Ride.

This has a huge car park, with plenty of room for motorhomes in a large area with no kerbs. The bus into Cardiff runs about every 15 minutes, and costs £5 for a group return ticket (A group is a minimum of 2 adults).

At present the junction from the A48M is being re- modelled and we found it a nightmare, going wrong twice. Beware of relying on the Sat nav, but follow the brown signs for Tredegar House (unfortunately not at every roundabout).

We shall certainly use the site again on visits to South Wales.

 We stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Yes previous reviews do identify road noise as an issue, but we found it wasn't the general background noise which was the issue but the idiots on motorbikes treating the getaway from the nearby traffic lights as the start of the Welsh motor GP!(mostly at the weekend)

In fact the 15 ft high boundary wall and big trees absorbed a lot of the noise. The location has to be the main selling point with the beautiful house and gardens and the acres of parkland free to roam in. Our dog thought he had died and gone to heaven!

The facilities block are a bit tired but very clean. Apparently come October a new block and other changes are planned. TV signal is a bit hit and miss since the large trees interfere with reception.

We found the WiFi reception just acceptable and hope the club will upgrade it from a bronze grade to gold.

 To Find Site:- Leave M4 at junction 28. If coming from the east on the slip road continue to roundabout, donít 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 canít 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 cafť.

 Set within a large country park, just off the M4. This is a lovely quiet site with excellent facilities and friendly staff.

Pay a visit to the 17th century Tredegar House, set within the grounds of the park.

The Welsh capital, Cardiff is a short drive away, boasting a National Museum and large shopping centres.

The surrounding bay is well worth a visit, with its small cafe's, bars and restaurants.

 Stayed here for one night visiting family in the area. The site is easy to find, just a mile from the M4 - this does however mean that there is some traffic noise from the motorway and adjoining roads.

The site is literally within the grounds of the house, the dogs thoroughly enjoyed the vast amounts of space to run around in, and as it was mid week the grounds were not overcrowded.

Facilities were of usual caravan club standard, always clean and warm. As the cleaning times were 10. 45 this did mean that there was a queue for the showers in the morning.

Ordered a takeaway from the local Indian takeaway and arranged for delivery - unfortunately the driver had no idea where the site was and several phone conversations later the food was cold by the time it finally arrived - we probably should have walked and collected it ourself !

 Booked the site for 6 nights as we're visiting out daughter, husband and 3 week old grandson in Caerleon. Location looked very convenient. Site is lovely, settled into the NT park. Warm welcome and easy access to pitches.

Unfortunately when we started to pitch our awning we discovered that the hard standings are so badly compacted it's almost impossible to drive in the tent pegs. I use hardened steel pegs with a 2 1/2lb club hammer. The result: bent pegs with the points broken off. Managed to secure enough fixings in the end although most pegs left 4 to 5 inches out of the ground. If we'd had high winds I'm not sure they'd have held.

Second problem is the horrendous road noise from the elevated M4 and the adjacent A48. Rush hour in the morning was not enjoyable.

A nice site marred by the location and hard standings. Moved on after 2 nights.

 Arrived at Tredegar house nice welcome. Had hard standing pitch but when we when to put awning up we found it was concrete under the gravel so couldn't get awning pegs in. All hard standings were concrete. Went back to reception they said yes the pitches are too hard to get pegs, in why didn't they tell us that before we set up. It seems to me caravan club are only interested in taking money not customers enjoyment.

We did change to a grass pitch

Paid for wifi but couldn't get connected, had trouble getting a TV signal with satellite dish as there was a giant wall behind our pitch

The toilets and showers were really good and the staff friendly

But won't be going back there
