Cornwall House is the last remaining privately occupied house in main shopping steeet of Monmouth.

It is a town house, dating back to at least the 17th-century. The red brick garden façade is in the Queen Anne style, dating from 1752 when the house belonged to Henry de Bergh, the Duke of Beaufort’s agent.

The street façade was remodelled in the Georgian style (date unknown). Many original features remain, including a fine staircase. The house still has the original walled kitchen garden.
