Bedwellty House is a listed Regency villa in the town of Tredegar in South Wales. The present Bedwellty House was built in 1818 as a home for Samuel Homfray, the Master of Tredegar Iron Works. It is surrounded by a 26 acre historic garden that was established at about the same time.

The garden features include an grotto arch giving access to a rock garden with water fountain. Visitors today can also see the Edwardian bandstand, gazebo, duck ponds, and a world famous lump of coal; a single 15 ton block hewn by South Wales coal miners for the Great Exhibition in 1851. The grotto features examples of water eroded limestone.
