When I went there the church did not allow people inside. Albeit I went on a wet and windy day. There is a nice part with a cross and an old gate.

Tiny, tiny Church nestling amongst massive centuries old Yew trees. The whole ambience was of calm and quiet holiness. People still worship here twice a month adding to the numbers who have prayed here for many hundreds of years. The teddy bears were extremely well behaved (if you want to know what that is about, you will just have to... More

Been visiting this beautiful little church for decades, situated in a lovely valley, the churchyard is populated by interesting gravestones and numerous yew trees. Step inside, look around, breathe in the atmosphere and as you do read the inscription on the main window. I have never failed to be uplifted by doing this, try it, you will see and feel... More

My family live in Capel-y-Ffin and we have family buried here so we see this lovely chapel often. It's always a nice tranquil space to be, and it's open every day except Christmas Day.

Not easy to get to as the road is mostly single track. You can walk if you are fit and able. A wonderful church with the most wonderful windows looking out on the most glorious scenery. Take your wellies it can be very muddy!

If you are in this area do not fail to visit this small church. Beautiful, peaceful. The drive over the Gospel Pass is fantastic. A perfect place to visit as a family but also such a perfect place to be on your own with your thoughts.
