The Kymin, Beach Road, Penarth

99 Year lease opportunity. 


The Vale of Glamorgan Council wishes to invite bids from parties who are interested in taking a 99 year lease of The Kymin, Beach Road, Penarth.  


Given the location of the property and the opportunities it could offer to both its local community and the wider community of the Vale of Glamorgan, priority will be given to those uses identified in the Planning Statement contained within the Marketing Brief, which include:

  • Appropriate Community uses

  • Tourism related uses

  • Appropriate office uses



The main building accommodation consists of a two storey building comprising a kitchen and cloakrooms together with a number of rooms previously used as meeting rooms/offices with favourable aspects to the south through Bay Windows.  


The Kymin Gardens are considered one of several important open spaces within the Penarth Conservation Area and as such the remainder of the grounds in the Council’s ownership are planned to be retained for continued public access. Kymin House itself is not listed, but is identified as a “County Treasure”.


The Council is seeking to ensure that any future uses of the Kymin and its gardens respect its “County Treasure” status, preserve or enhance the Penarth Conservation Area, and are sensitive to the amenity of the neighbouring residential areas.




For further information please see the Marketing Brief:

The strict deadline for submitting tender bids is 12 Noon on Friday 09 April 2021.
