Part of the remains of St Dogmaels Abbey

St Dogmaels (Welsh: Llandudoch) is a village and community in Pembrokeshire, Wales, on the estuary of the River Teifi, a mile downstream from the town of Cardigan in neighbouring Ceredigion.

The village contains the remains of a 12th century Tironian abbey, which was in its day one of the richer monastic institutions in Wales. It was once a marcher borough. George Owen of Henllys, in 1603, described it as one of five Pembrokeshire boroughs overseen by a portreeve[1].

In 2006 the village won the Wales Calor Village of the Year competition after beating Trefriw in the final. [1]

St Dogmaels is twinned with the village of Trédarzec in Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany.
