Red Roses (Welsh: Rhos-goch, "red moor") is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

Situated in south-west Carmarthenshire, the village forms part of the Eglwyscummin community, and with Ciffig and Marros, forms part of the Laugharne Township electoral ward.

The A477 trunk road, the main route to south Pembrokeshire from the A40 used to run through the centre of the village; the bypass to the north of the village was opened in April 2014. The village centre is at the of the previous A477 and the B4314 crossroads.

The village community centre was built in 2008, occupying where an Methodist Chapel had been.[1]

Surrounded by farmland, the village is near a number of holiday destinations and has two holiday parks; one for static caravans and one for touring caravans. The economy is largely dependent on farming and tourism.

The village pub, the Sporting Chance, which used to be the Llwyngwair Arms, has been closed since March 2014.[2]
