Llancarfan has long been recognised as one of the Vale of Glamorgan's 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.
