Glandyfi (formerly anglicised as Glandovey) is a small hamlet in the county of Ceredigion in Wales on the A487 trunk road from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth.

Glandyfi Castle was built in the Regency Gothic style in 1810 for George Jeffreys.[1] The Jeffreys family remained in possession of the castle until 1906, when the estate was broken up and sold at auction. The castle itself was bought by Robert John Spurrell (elder son of Daniel Spurrell of Bessingham, Norfolk), who remained there until his death in 1929. It was later the home of Sir Bernard and Lady Docker,[2] and is currently a bed and breakfast.[3]

Glandyfi Castle is a Grade II listed building and contains a number of gardens planted at different times in its history. It is located close to the site of Aberdyfi Castle, which dates back to 1156.

At one time Glandyfi had a railway station. This is a view in 1962
