Stunning views of Monmouth
Jul 2021
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.

Stunning views
Jun 2021
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.

Great views and nothing erse
Jul 2020
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

Magical Intimate Wedding Venue
Oct 2019 • Solo
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!

Worth risking the difficult road up
Sep 2019 • Couples
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

What a view
Sep 2019
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.

Lovely walks and great views
Aug 2019
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.

Worth the drive for stunning views
Aug 2019
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.

Wonderful insight from the staff at the National Trust, very informative of the history and very passionate about customer experience!! They are a credit to the trust!!
As national trust members it felt good to be supporting these heritage assets!!
We enjoyed a homemade picnic on the bowling green , such wonderful views which has inspired us to walk the offas dyke path which runs through the grounds.Such a spectacular location with 360 degree views!!

Free Parking
Dog friendly (we took along our rather large labrador with us- the staff even have dog treats for the furry visitors)

Thanks for a wonderdul day out!!!
