My family live in Capel-y-Ffin and we have family buried here so we see this lovely chapel often. It's always a nice tranquil space to be, and it's open every day except Christmas Day.

Not easy to get to as the road is mostly single track. You can walk if you are fit and able. A wonderful church with the most wonderful windows looking out on the most glorious scenery. Take your wellies it can be very muddy!
