The community of Llanstadwell includes the settlements of Hazelbeach, Mascle Bridge (or Mastlebridge), Jordanston, Waterston and Little Honeyborough.
The name derives from the dedication of the parish and church to St Tudwal, a 6th-century Breton monk.
The administrative parish of Llanstadwell originally included Neyland which, at the start of the 20th century had grown enough to have its own council. The parish of Llanstadwell still includes Neyland, whose St Clement's Church is a daughter church to Llanstadwell.
The parish of Llanstadwell extends from the shore of the Cleddau as far north as Rosemarket and is largely rural with a few scattered hamlets. The parish church is dedicated to St Tudwal, and the area includes other places of worship at Little Honeyborough, Neyland (four chapels and a Roman Catholic church) and Waterston.
St Tudwal's is believed to date from the 12th century, and the bells from 1684, but much of the present church is mid-19th century.
The community has a community council and is part of the Neyland West Electoral ward of Pembrokeshire County Council. The community includes the settlements of Hazelbeach, Mascle Bridge (or Mastlebridge), Jordanston, Waterston and Little Honeyborough.
