“A place to satisfy the pilgrim and the tourist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Heard the choir from Caernarfon sing some wonderful Welsh music and a young girl hoping to attend The Welsh college of Music and Drama in Cardiff, play the Harp and Piano beautifully.

“14th Century Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Full of atmosphere and seeped in history. Easy to access and seems to be open most of the time. Great rope bridge cross at the river rear of the church

“Little historic church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

A small church hidden away slightly from the main street of Betws-y-Coed, but nice to visit if you've got a little bit of time one day. Has a nice bit of history and is right by the suspension bridge, so you can do them both at once.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Tiny, ancient church, with an atmosphere like no other.
One of the most peaceful places I have ever seen.

The yew trees in the graveyard are magnificent, and I could have sat under them all day just soaking up the atmosphere.
