Moynes Court Mathern
ST 520-909 Monmouthshire Wales
Moynes Court was possibly a 13th century stone fortified manor house, founded by Sir Bogo de Knovil. The large oval platform encased by a ditch with a counterscarp bank, now supports an early Tudor three gabled mansion house. A 14th century gatehouse, with a large single vehicular archway gives access to the courtyard. Of two storeys and an attic, it is flanked on both gables by tall square towers. Nearby by is St Pierre Manor and 2 miles north-east is Chepstow Town Gate.
Moynes Court is located west of Mathern, off the A48. 14 miles east of Newport, on the M4-M48-A48.
The site is privately owned and offers self catering accommodation in the gatehouse, check website for details. Visible from a public footpath, which passes the gatehouse from the church of St Tewdric, at Mathern.
There is a car park.
