Stunning Medieval Church and 6th Century holy well, high in the foothills of the Carneddau, above the Conwy Valley. A place of inspiration, pilgrimage and peace that is still used for regular worship (and weddings!)

We were very lucky to be married at this church and for those that can it's well worth the visit especially for the services held during summer months. The church is well maintained by the church wardens who were also present for our special day.

This church is not far from where we live and once a year we hike up the lane, look around the church and carry on to Rowen. It's in a beautiful setting. Think they have a few services a year there in the Summer.

Whether you are a religious person or not, this is the most amazing church. Tucked away in a small hollow over 300 metres above sea level this is a place of inspiration and restoration. Drive up the narrow mountain road avoiding the stone walls, then...More

secluded small church at the end of a lovely walk and on the Pilgrims Way. No longer always open which is disappointing, but a lovely spot.
