Fonmon Castle is a fortified house near the village of Fonmon in the Vale of Glamorgan. It dates from the 13th century, and is still a private residence.

The present owners, the Boothby family, are descendants of Colonel Philip Jones, who bought the house in 1656. Notable features include the library, designed by Thomas Stocking.

The castle is open to the public during the summer months, and the grounds are often used for public events.
