Kymin Roundhouse


The Kymin roundhouse is a circular Georgian property, built in a prominent position overlooking the Wye valley and the town of Monmouth in 1794 by local gentry for their use as a small, private dining club with stunning views.


The property (owned by The National Trust) had been used as a house for some time prior to the extensive restoration. The works involved the complete restoration of the property both internally and externally and the building is now open for public viewing.


Adjacent to the roundhouse is the Naval Temple built by public subscription in 1800 to celebrate important naval victories during the late 18th Century. The practice is currently undertaking a project to resolve weathering problems faced by this monument.
