  • We went as we wanted a long walk and to see the chapel, through the chapel is a sheltered spot where you can sit and have a picnic or just enjoy the views, the chapel is tiny with steep steps but wort...  more »
  • I found it abit tricky to get to the car park. You don’t actually believe it’s there until you go down the steps. Wouldn’t recommend for people who struggle with steps. But it’s awesome down in the ca...  more »
  • It couldn't have been windier or colder on our visit. The sea was raging and the fret blew around us as we took in this tiny chapel and its view. It felt safe and calm once inside, very simple and gro...  more »

  • A beautiful place. The walk down is ok, a little steep but there is a handrail its is harder coming up. Down pass the chapel are lots of really large rocks so probably not suitable for really young or immobile, but we saw children there having a great time running between the rocks and big arches. The views are amazing could have spent ages down this area will never forget it
  • Free parking. Short walk down some difficult steps to the quaint chapel on a cliff edge. More or less in tact. Not advisable with small kids. No toilets here. Also walked across the military range, next door, as my kids wanted to look at the tanks in the field. A sign tells you when if is safe to enter!
  • This is a must see. The Chapel has a free car park at the cliff end and then some steep steps but with a banister to assist. The whole area is on the verge of a military tank range which doesn't seem to bother the sheep. It is absolutely stunning.
  • Lovely place to visit, many tales surround the chapel most famous of which is that of the golden bell which is hidden inside one of the holders below, that still to this day rings whenever it's tapped as if there were a bell inside.
  • A must see experience. Beautiful views and lovely walk. The chapel is unique and built into the cliff.
