Please note that the church will be unavailable to visitors from Monday 27th June 2016 for 3 months to allow conservation work to be carried out.
The church of St. Cadoc at Llancarfan [CF623AD] is the focus of this small and charming village in the heart of Vale of Glamorgan. The village sits 15 miles from Cardiff, ten minutes from the mighty Severn, and 7 miles from the fruitful market town of Cowbridge. Our church is open daily from 1000 to at least 1800.
Like the church's bells, its pastoral call echoes well beyond the ears of regular worshippers, and villagers take a pride in their church's beauty and antiquity. Just as they defended their local hostelry - the Fox & Hounds - by a village 'buy out' when it was threatened, so villagers cherish the history & continuity of a church that continues to reveal cultural secrets, hidden for centuries.
