One of the smallest villages in the Vale of Glamorgan, Llancarfan is mostly unspoiled and witnessed the founding of a Celtic monastery in the 6th century by St Cattwg.

The present 13th century church was built on the site and has many historic features, including an embattled tower. A hill fort known as Castle Ditches lies close to the village. The area has numerous legends associated with nearby caves and forests.
