A beautiful coastal walk, whatever the weather, then sit quietly in St Non's Chapel for a few moments - a perfect day

A little off the beaten track but worth it if only for the coastal views. Interesting history (both re: Welsh land settlement and St David's Cathedral).

St. Non's is thought to be the location of St. David's birth & the remains of his family's home is close to the Holy Well. Also nearby is the much more recently constructed chapel which is quite charming. It is small & had a lovely atmosphere, feeling like a real sanctuary. It is close to a retreat building which looked... More

Without sounding ignorant, there was no information on the significance of St Nons Chapel or the well apart from two really mediocre placards on the wall. I would have thought St Davids heritage would benefit from some sort of App which would allow the rich history of the place to be shared. Imagine being able to walk around the place... More

Some one at the Cathedral mentioned to visit this chapel. Sometimes the small understated place s stand out, 100 % true here. The stained glass windows Top Class. A Great place to contemplate your thoughts, we are not catholic either, but we both reflected our loses.

It's worth the short drive from Wales' smallest city of St Davids to see At.Non"s chapel. It's simply beautiful and spiritual. Set on a gill overlooking the glorious bay and only abstains through fein where St Non herself was born to become the mother of St David himself, the Patron Saint of Wales. Chill Out, relax unwind and let tour... More

The chapel ruins are quite small, but this is a very peaceful and pleasant spot. The chapel is surrounded by a small fence in a field in which cows were being kept (they seemed quite friendly!) The coastal path here is lovely and a good spot for a nice walk. There is a small car park a very short walk... More

We are Americans who were visiting Wales and came across this interesting place. As Catholics, we had no knowledge of St Winifred except having heard her name in the past. We found this place peaceful and freshing. We were interested in the story of St Winifred and collected some water from the well and took a copy of the healing... More

We visited St Non's chapel while were walking a stretch of this incredible coastal path. The Chapel is in the grounds of a retreat, but the Chapel itself is open to all comers. It was built by a previous owner so that his catholic wife would have somewhere to worship. Very romantic and well worth the very slight detour from... More
