Llanmihangel is one of the quietest villages in the Vale of Glamorgan, located 15 miles from the capital city of Cardiff in South Wales. It is an ideal place to escape to away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The village is some 3 miles from the Glamorgan Heritage Coast at Stout Bay, and the Valeways Millennium Heritage Trail wends its way through Llanmihangel from Llantwit Major, Boverton and Llanmaes en-route to Sigingstone, Llanblethian and Cowbridge to the north.
The village consists of a cluster of buildings that have little changed since the 16th century. Indeed the church, dedicated to St Michael, dates back to the 13th century and has a Norman foundation. The old church has an impressive tower, and contains a beautiful 18th century silver chalice.
Plas Llanmihangel, the manor house, itself looks down over the church with its holy well and across to the great barn. The house has the remains of a lovely 17th century Yew tree garden and the whole village is entirely surrounded by undulating countryside.
There are many attractions in the local area. These include the market town of Cowbridge with its small boutiques and independent shops (3 miles north), the ruins of Beaupre Castle (within walking distance), the heritage coast of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast (4 miles south), and Cardiff, with its array of shops and vibrant nightlife (15 miles north east).
