We loved the clouty tree and the chapel at this well. Feels very spiritual there and very peaceful. So silent and ancient. Gorgeous.

A lovely place to visit. Take wellies or make sure you go when it hasn't rained for a week. Dogs love it too. Make sure you stop and take things in. Put your phones away and look!!!
