Great place to walk, or for less able you can drive up the Kymin. The views are tremendous, on a clear day you can see for miles, over the top of Monmouth town and the river Wye.

I had read about this prior to our stay in the area and was particularly keen to see it because of the Lord Nelson connection. Be sure to check the website for the days when it is open. Small but very interesting.

Beautiful views and perfect for a picnic also. If you are not used to lane driving, be careful as you drive a steep narrow road to reach it.

The summit of Kymin Hill appears in all its glory as you hike up from Monmouth through steep woods. The views are stunning and the handy benches are perfect to rest weary legs. Take time to look round the naval memorial and the round house

The Kymin is a monument to some of our greatest fighting admirals, Nelson, Hood etc. Yes it’s nowhere near the sea but the views from this monument are astounding looking down on Monmouth and the far off countryside beyond. The ancient woodlands surrounding the roundhouse...More
