Abercych (or Abercuch, Welsh pronunciation: [ɑbərkiːx]) is a small village of less than 100 houses, scattered mostly along the sides of a small lane that runs along the slopes of a valley in the north of the county of Pembrokeshire in South West Wales, in the parish of Manordeifi. It is an ancient village, the Welsh placename of which means 'the mouth of the Cuch'. The village is rural with no industry except for a timber sawmill at the Western end of the village. It has a post office open part-time, and two public houses. There are also a number of small 'cottage industries' in the village including Sacred Hoop Magazine
Abercych is on the western side of the lower part of the valley of the river Cych. The Cych is a small river, which is connected with the realm of Annwn in the ancient Welsh tale of Pwyll Pendefig Dyfed, the first of the Four Branches of the Mabinogi. There are several places on the upper reachers of the Cych that are seen as an entry point to the 'other worlds' (fairy realms), and there are some folk tales told by some local people about the magical nature of river and the valley.
