Cwmffrwd is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales, located around two miles (3.2 km) south of Carmarthen.

Cwmffrwd is mainly a 20th-century settlement dominating the small river Nant Cwmffrwd, with some 19th-century elements.[1] Its main access road, Heol Nantyglasdwr, connects the village to the A484 and leads directly into the main residential street, Maesglasnant.

It has never been clarified if the stone bridge over the river Nant Pibwr north of Cwmffrwd, at the old highway leading to Carmarthen, had been built on remains of Roman foundations.[1]

Landmarks[edit]

St. Anne’s is a small, attractive and well-maintained church north-east of the village.[2]

Transport[edit]

Buses stop in both directions on the A484.
