‪The final weekend of February provided ideal weather for an afternoon visit to a National Trust property. After weeks of continuous storms, it was so good to get out, and enjoy clear blue skies and bright sunshine. Our visit was only made possible when my Son (who normally visits on a weekend) had to stay home because of a family emergency.

The unexpected freedom to go somewhere for part of the day, lead us to explore the potential provided by nearby NT properties: and those we hadn’t previously explored. Like …

The Kymin: situated in Wales within a few metres of the border with England, just east of the county town of Monmouth. It is a hill with an 18th Century neo-classical Round House sat on its peak. Completed in 1798, the Round House, within its nine acres of gardens and woodland, features a crenulated two-storey tower, with balconied views, and a woodland walk. The Round House was built as a shelter from inclement weather, by the well-to-do ‘Kymin Club’: a group of principal local Gentlemen who met weekly to picnic. The funding for the project was provided by local landowner The Duke of Beaufort, and eight Members of Parliament. At 800 feet above the river, stunning views of part of the Wye Valley and nearby Monmouth can be enjoyed from the grounds of the Round House. The building was not open when we visited and the NT website fails to provide opening dates. You can, however, see that photos here on TA, are of the interior: so it must be opened occasionally.

Just a few yards from the Round House is a Naval Temple. Built in 1800, as a patriotic symbol to Britain’s naval supremacy; it is thought to be the only one of its kind in the world. Built with funds raised by public subscription, the Temple commemorates 16 British Royal Navy Admirals who had led the British Fleet to significant naval victories in history to date (of construction). Sir Horatio Nelson, with Lady Hamilton, visited here in 1802 after leading the British Fleet in the defeat of Bonapart’s navy at the Battle of the Nile. Three years after his visit Nelson died at the Battle of Trafalgar.

It was a good day out, and and a site well-worth visiting; the on-site car park is very convenient, but quite small. Fortunately there were not many other visitors; but of those visiting (some of whom picnicked sat on benches with a view) should be admired for taking the walk from Monmouth. It’s only 1.6 miles, but a climb of 800ft; we drove as such a walk would have been well beyond our capabilities!‬

‪This is an interesting and unusual location, at the top of a very narrow road. The views are stunning! There are probably some nice walks, but I wasn't quite up to exploring those: feeling a bit frail, it was a gentle uphill walk from the car-park to the view point and monument. ‬

‪Round House not open at present. Very steep and narrow road. Walking to top is steep but longer less steep walks are available. Walking in this area is very rewarding as scenery is outstanding.‬

‪I happened to walk past it whilst following Offa's Dyke path and stopped briefly to look at the memorial to dead admirals and to admire the view. Other than that, that's it‬

‪This place is a hidden gem . We got married here and the staff were fantastic. Beautiful scenery , old worldly charm and the history of this National Trust property made it the best possible venue to have picked for our wedding. The manager was so helpful and accommodating. 5 stars + from us!‬

‪Although there are many single track roads in the area, access to the Round House is up a very steep hill. but with patience by everyone, there were no mishaps.
The views at the top are very spectacular. Grounds are very well kept ‬

‪Bit of a drive up a single track road. But beautiful views and buildings at the end. Worth a visit, shame we couldn't go inside house as it was closed but still worth a visit ‬

‪I can understand why this in years gone by was a favourite picnic spot. The Round House has little to see and there are no facilities. Our visit was when the house was open and a knowledgeable chap gave us a full understanding of its history and of those associated with the building. This made the visit worthwhile.‬

‪The National Trust staff are wonderful here, really helpful and informative. We took our dog and walked parts of the Offas Dyke path which runs through the grounds. The views of Monmouth are fantastic, on a really clear day it is said you can see parts of the Brecon Beacons, however it was too hazy for us to see that far the day we visited. Parking is free and you can picnic on the green if u wanted. If you love a good walk with great views I would recommend a visit.‬

‪We used our 87 year old father/ in law as an excuse not to walk up- the drive up was good, with ocassional peeps of the view to come. Need to keep a mental note of where the pssing places are, as in one or two stretches, might need to reverse back on a busy day.
The main attraction for us, was the stunning views all around, from the top.
The NT maintained monuments are interesting to learn about, and as ever with NT, friendly staff love to share their enthusiams and knowledge with vsiitors, pitching their interaction to suit.‬
