The Kymin

Picnic Sites and Viewpoints in or near Monmouth


A two-storey circular Georgian banqueting house and naval temple, in wooded hilltop grounds, which afford spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. When Admiral Lord Nelson visited the site in 1802 he described it as one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. One mile east of Monmouth, the Kymin is owned by the National Trust. It lies on the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail and is also accessible by footpath from the town.
