Welcome to Wenvoe

Wenvoe (Welsh: Gwenfô) is a Welsh village in the Vale of Glamorgan located on the western side of a shallow valley between Cardiff and Barry, surrounded by woods and farmland.

The Community of Wenvoe encompasses the communities of Dyffryn, St Lythans, Twyn-yr-Odyn and Brooklands Terrace/Parc y Gwenfô. The Community consists of around 800 properties, 500 being located in the village.

Wenvoe is a popular commuter village conveniently situated for the City of Cardiff but set in the countryside only a few miles from the sea and with easy access to the M4 motorway a few miles away. 

The village developed around the parish church, which can be traced back to the 12th Century with the adjacent locality now being a conservation area. The village has a well-stocked store with a post office, a church, primary school, a public house and travel lodge, a part time library and three halls. There is also a public house in the adjoining hamlet of Twyn-yr-Odyn, and another church at St Lythans. 

Wenvoe has a very healthy community spirit which supports many local community groups with activities to meet everybody's needs. Amongst these are Wenvoe Scout Group, Youth Club, the Village Quaffers, Ladies Choir, Rotary, W.I., Whist Drives, the Church and many social events. It also boasts its own monthly newspaper titled the 'Wenvoe What's On'.
