The Kymin, Monmouth, Monmouthshire
The views from the Kymin are nothing short of spectacular, looking down on the town of Monmouth and out across seemingly endless countryside; on a clear day you can see 10 counties. Come here by car, on bike, or on foot; it’s well worth the effort.
Up at the Kymin you’ll find beautiful broadleaved woodland to explore, pleasure lawns and a bowling green and two magical follies. One is the castellated Georgian Roundhouse, built at the end of the late 18th century as a banqueting house for a gentlemen’s group, and the other is the naval Temple, built in honour of Britain’s naval supremacy at the height of the British Empire.
Take the kids on a nature trail, walk the dog, have a family picnic, play lawn games like croquet, giant Jenga, and giant darts; bring your own games or hire them from the Round House when it’s open between March and October.
