Cowbridge & The Rural Vale
The Fox and Hounds
The Fox and Hounds is located in the beautiful village of Llancarfan in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan. Here you will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of village life and the abundance of natural beauty that surrounds it. This former Welsh longhouse offers comfortable accommodation, exceptional food and a good choice of fine ales and wines all under one welcoming roof. Step outside to discover the very best of this incredible area. Wales is famed for its myths and legends that speak of the mists of dragon’s breath, Arthur and Guinevere, the Lady of the Lake and more. Here in Llancarfan you will find much mystery and history to uncover. Famed for the Church of St. Cadog that was established in about AD 515, it is a very important area for discovering much about the religious history of both Wales and Great Britain. There is of course much more to this rich landscape than elderly buildings with stories to tell. The nature in this part of Wales is rich and varied, with a countryside that is criss-crossed by scenic walks that open your eyes to an incredible array of wildlife, flora and fauna. For nature lovers, this may be paradise found.
You can join the Llancarfan Circular walk that ensures you get to see all the beautiful attractions. This walk will take you through the most interesting parts of the Vale and leave you filled with the sights, smells and sounds of nature at her finest. Some of the features you will come across during this walk include, the Church of St Cadoc, our own much loved 16 th century Fox & Hounds Public House (a focal point of village life here), White chapel, Walterston Fawr farmhouse, The Amelia Trust farm and the fascinating Iron Age Hillfort, of which it is said that Cromwell used during the British civil war to bombard Penmark castle. We are very proud of our unique business and look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you. We are very much an integral part of both the village and surrounding areas and will be delighted to help you plan your stay. We have up-to-date information on all the attractions and activities in the area.
