Treowen, Trefynwy — the most important early 17th century gentry house in the county. Particularly fine open well staircase. Four storey Jacobean house built on a double-pile plan. It was used as a farmhouse from the 1670s to the 1990s so the house has never been remodelled. Everything that you see is the unaltered work of its age.

Take a guided tour of the entire house and garden led by the owner.

Getting here

Wonastow, Monmouth, NP25 4DL

Treowen sits between Monmouth and Raglan. Go out of Monmouth on the Wonastow Road and follow signs to Wonastow. Follow this road for about 3.5 miles through a group of houses signed “Jingle Street”. Go up a long hill. The entrance to Treowen is just past the brow of the hill on the right.

What3words: The main visitor entrance is at ///trapdoor.arrow.icebergs

There are trains to Newport, Abergavenny, Hereford and Gloucester and buses to Monmouth. There is also an infrequent bus service to Dingestow.

Cycle Route 
National Cycle Network Route 423 passes the entrance to Treowen.

One of Wales' finest

Panelled rooms, magnificent staircases, delightful gardens, breathtaking views, private woodland walks and a lofty position at the far end of a half mile long drive Wales offer atmosphere, privacy and a very different adventure holiday for the discerning visitor.

Antiquarian Charles Heath's glowing description of Grade I listed Treowen remains as true today as when it was written.

A Noble Mansion. It occupies a commanding situation from whence are surveyed some of the most interesting scenes in Monmouthshire.

Over the entrance is a stone square with the armorial bearings of nine different noblemen and other characters of high rank in this County.

A correspondent dignity pervades the whole of the interior. A staircase two yards wide, of 72 steps, with balustrades, the newels on the quarterspaces two feet round, the whole in solid oak, which still remains perfect, stands unrivalled in the Kingdom.

Dros y fynedfa mae sgwâr carreg gydag arfbeisiau naw gwahanol fonheddwr a chymeriadau eraill o safle uchel yn y Sir hon. Mae’r tu mewn hefyd yr un mor urddasol. Mae grisiau dwy lath o led, gyda 72 gris, balwstradau, pyst grisiau dwy droedfedd ar y landin, y cyfan mewn derw solet, yn dal yn berffaith, does dim grisiau tebyg iddo yn y Deyrnas Unedig.
