This tiny chapel overlooking the beach still holds weekly services even though there is only room for 6 people inside. Visitors are welcome to go inside this lovely building free of charge and it's well worth a look. The little altar has candles lit and is beautifully cared for.

What a truly amazing little chapel. It could so easily be overlooked and it's not widely advertised sadly. A must see for anyone visiting the area, personally I'd travel to see it, it was great.

Reputedly the smallest working chapel in the UK. This is an atmospheric and tranquil holy place. Outside of the tourist season, it's Ideal for quiet contemplation.

This church is perfect to visit either with friends, family or for a moment of quiet on your own. A place of worship for many years, it is so small but very welcoming.

I didn't know about this church until trip advisor sent an email, I visited on my recent on holiday and was so glad that we took the time to find it. It is lovely inside with remembrance flowers and cards for loved ones.

Easily missed but well worth discovering. Obviously so well loved and cared for, well done everyone involved. A little hidden gem. A peaceful haven to be savoured in this hectic world. The memorial benches outside added to the experience.

I visited here several times in the summer. Lovely little church. Very quaint and very small. They do hold a real service there on a Sunday but space is at a premium as it only holds several people. Always fresh flowers every time I have been and the outside garden is pretty too. You can also write a prayer for... More

We came upon this tiny Chapel quite by accident as we were just going for a walk along the sea front. There's only room for 6 inside the place but what a lovely atmosphere there was inside. Very calm & peaceful & well worth a visit.

A real haven of peace and steeped in history. Sadly not easy to find unless you walk along the sea front. Donation box is in the right hand wall. I believe this little chapel is open all the time and is beautifully kept. No one there but we could 'feel' that we were welcome.
