Cwmdauddwr (rarely referred to by its full name of Llansantffraid Cwmdauddwr) is a village in Powys, Wales.

It is contiguous with the town of Rhayader on the opposite side of the River Wye. The village is located on the B4518 road linking Rhayader with the Elan Valley Reservoirs.

The village is home to a number of local shops, a pub (The Triangle Inn), village hall and a parish church dedicated to St. Brides.

The Groe, a large park on the banks of the river has walks, play areas and sports pitches.

Rhayader railway station was situated in the village until its closure in 1963.

Church[edit]

St Brides church is Victorian but contains some older memorials. Emmeline Lewis Lloyd is buried here.[1] and the church there has a memorial. The plaque is saved from Nantgwyllt church when it was flooded. The plaque notes that Lewis Lloyd was the eighth woman to climb Mont Blanc.[2]
