An amazing place. You get a feeling of peace and hope. In the gift shop we found the people to be really helpful. They supplied a wheelchair to one of our party who was not feeling well. The well and bathing pool are so beautiful

This "Lourdes of Wales" is well worth a call for a peaceful break. Tea-room next door as well. There is a small parking opposite which is very handy. Holywell itself worth a little stroll.

Well worth a visit, as it only cost a quid each. Shame these miracle cure places don't come with a money-back guarantee or I'd be asking for my money back! Didn't cure my tennis elbow but a nice way to spend half an hour.

As I am neither religious nor Welsh I could perhaps be forgiven for admitting that I had never heard of this place and came upon it by accident. Having done so, and despite an inbuilt sense of cynicism re magical wells at Lourdes and the...More
