Llancarfan has long been recognised as one of the Vale of Glamorgans prettiest villages with its conservation areas status and is situated in the Valley of the Nant Llancarfan which meanders through the village and is crossed by two fords and a small bridge. The village enjoys a rich history with major monastic activities in the 5th to 12th Centuries although the early settlers in the area were from Roman times. In early times the many local wells were famous for their power of healing certain diseases being blest by the early saints who dwelt there. These days the village comprises mostly individual detached houses including a number of converted former mills, chapels, cottages etc. In the heart of the village is St Cadoc's Church thought to date from the 12th century, The Fox and Hounds, the village hall and tennis club with court. It says something for the village spirit that the village is mounting a spirited campaign against the local authorities plans to relocate the village school.
The village is not a through road to anywhere so traffic is minimal. However easy access in all directions to the main road network brings major centres within easy commuting distance including the capital city of Cardiff, Bridgend, Llantrisant, Barry etc. There are mainline railway stations at Bridgend and Cardiff. Cardiff Wales Airport is within easy driving distance. The village is surrounded by some delightful countryside with the Heritage Coastline just a few miles to the south. Countryside pursuits including golf, riding etc are all within easy distance.
A large particularly well appointed modern family house, ideal for enjoying village life, and inspection is thoroughly recommended.
