A beautiful walk with the most fabulous views. Small museum and areas of historical interest. Keep a look out for the signs for this beautiful area as they could be easily missed. The car park was a good size although we were the only people visiting at this time, 11-ish on a Sunday.

The view across Monmouth from Kymin Hill is well worth the extra hour's walking at the end of the first stage of Offa's Dyke part - or at the beginning of the last stage... The round tower cafe was shut by the time we arrived but it is a good place to sit down anyway.

At over 800 feet, is a few feet from being a mountain. Super views to Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons and Wye and Monnow valleys.. Famous monument to Nelson, who obtained oak for his ships from this area of the Forest of Dean. Do make the climb. Round House at the summit.

Well off the beaten track, but well worth the visit once you get to the top. The views are fantastic, although it wasn't such a good day today as it was hazy. There isn't a lot to see on the round house, but there is a woodland walk and can you can book an event here. They do a lovely cup of tea and piece of cake. You can see the round house, when you are in Monmouth.
