Gorsgoch (About this soundWelsh pronunciation) is a small rural village near Lampeter in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

"Cors" (mutated to Gors) is Welsh for "marsh" or "bog", and "goch" is the mutated form of "coch" meaning "red": so the name literally translated means "Red Bog". This upland bog is located alongside the main road that leads through the village.

The village is developing at a fast rate. New houses are being constructed and there are planning applications for more. Gorsgoch has a pub, Cefn-Hafod. The garages have been closed along with the school years ago. There is also a village hall that has been closed a few years; however, it is being refurbished. The town of Lampeter is 7 miles away and the town of New Quay is 15 miles away
