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

We were advised by one of the assistants at oriel y parc to walk from caerfai bay to nons chapel on the Pembrokeshire coastal path which is a short but scenic walk and relatively level with some slippery steps. The coastal views were magnificent and the chapel was beautiful. There is a retreat centre behind the chapel and a paved... More

Just a short drive from St Davids lies the ruined Chapel of St Nons. This chapel is believed to have been built on the home of St Non who gave birth to St David, Patron Saint of Wales. During medieval times this chapel was one of the main Christian pilgrimage sites and is still popular with locals and tourists. There... More

This is my favorite bit of a walk along the coastal path. An opportunity to make a wish at the start or end of some exercise is very nice.

We walked to this as a slight detour on the way into St David's. It has information notices to read and is supposed to be the birth place of St David. The well is meant to have healing properties, but we didn't try it, so I can't comment on that!! I am not sure if I would make a special... More
