About St Cadoc's Llancarfan

The church of St. Cadoc at Llancarfan [CF62 3AD] 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.

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.

You will find an ever-growing wealth of things to do during a trip to St. Cadoc’s, the historical Llancarfan valley, and the blissful Vale of Glamorgan. Sponsorship from benevolent donors, and significant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cadw, is enabling the church’s re-discovery, conservation & interpretation of lost – or misunderstood – cultural treasures.

Our regular weekly Holy Eucharist services are held at 11am on Sunday and 10am on Tuesday.

The Church is now open to visitors wishing to view the wall paintings from 9am-6pm every day except 10:30am-12:30pm Sundays and 9:30am-11:00am Tuesdays when services are taking place.
