  • really good place to visit in side St Govans isnt much left but you can still see the well in the floor where he'd get his water from on the wall to the right as you walk through the main entrance looks like a carving of Jesus Christ at first i thought it looked like a foot but when i looked more at the photos i took i then saw the carving more and could make out what it is when you go through the back entrance there stands St Govans wishing well although it has dryed up it still stands there today the srounding areas are all so fantastic to see with lots of water lilly ponds and many different birds as you come through boshington into broad haven there is a very old church and St Govans inn which does really good food as you go through broad haven there are many camp sites for tents and caravans before going on to the beach there is a natural trust shop with lots of information and toilets

  • A wonderful and very spiritual location. Wonderful rock pools too.
