Rhydowen is a small village in Ceredigion in south-west Wales.

It has a population of about 347, of which around 200 are Welsh-speaking.

The village hall, established in 1917, has been recently demolished[when?], despite local protest. The hall, declared derelict in 1973 after falling into disrepair due to lack of use, or indeed maintenance, had undergone several attempts at restoration; but any future efforts were deemed too costly.
