Llanarth is a village, community and ecclesiastical parish in Ceredigion, Wales.
LLANARTH (LLAN-ARTH), a parish in the hundred of MOYTHEN, county of CARDIGAN, SOUTH WALES, 13 miles(N.W. by W.) from Lampeter, consisting of two divisions, North and South. This parish, which is of considerable extent, is pleasantly situated on the turnpike road leading from Cardigan to Aberystwith, and is intersected by the river Llethy, which falls into Cardigan bay at Llanina. The Earl of Richmond, afterwards Henry VII., on the second night after his landing at Milford Haven encamped his forces at Wern Newydd, in this neighbourhood, where he was hospitably entertained by Einon ab Davydd Llwyd, on his route through this county to Bosworth Field. The church, dedicated to St. Vylltyg, is a venerable structure, consisting of a nave and chancel, with a lofty and substantial tower, and is situated on the declivity of a high hill. There are places of worship for Independents, Calvinistic Methodists, and Wesleyans.
