Llanrhystud- between Aberaeron & Aberyswyth
A small village named after the little known Saint Rhystud. Llanrhstud has good access to the sea, the coastal path and its quiet shingle, dog friendly beach, which has a free car park.
The village is halfway between Aberaeron & Aberystwyth and marks the ends of the coastal plain from Aberaeron with steep cliffs rising from the village to the north.
Llanrhystud has a post office & shop, a garage & café, a water powered flour Mill and a friendly pub, the Black Lion, which serves good food.
The original centre of the village was the church whose Saint Rhystud is not commemorated anywhere else. The present church is an impressive building. It was paid for by local subscription and in 1954 it replaced the decayed medieval church.
Llanrhystud has been an important settlement over the years. A mile inland, above Penrhos Golf & Country Club, on the site of a previous Iron Age hill fort (100B.C.) are the remains of Gaer Penrhôs castle which was built in 1149.
On the hills to the south are the sites of a further 2 further Iron Age forts Castell Mawr & Castell Bach.
