A wonderful Welsh church with a 6th century foundation, and there the village (famed across Wales for its sheltered beach and tasty fish and chips) grew up around the church.
The church is ancient but it seems it is unknown quite how old it certainly dates from the 12th century, or earlier.
It is in a beautiful spot and has excellent views across Cardigan Bay.
This church occupies an elevated position near the coast and Hoffnant river. Penbryn is Welsh for 'hilltop'. The churchyard’s rounded shape indicates that early Christians established a religious site here.
On the left of the church gate down the hill and after a few yards there is a gate on our left and across the field to another gate into the woodlands or the beach.
