Village

Details

A small village in a rural farming community situated 7 miles west of Newcastle Emlyn, 10 miles east of Newport and 5 miles south of Cardigan, Boncath is surrounded by many fine manor houses, the most impressive to be seen being Ffynone designed and built by John Nash in 1792 and Cilwendig, a Georgian house built by Morgan Jones. The name is derived from the Welsh word for buzzard - bwncath.

The village stands at a cross-roads linking the nearby settlements of Newchapel (Capelnewydd), Eglwyswrw, Blaenffos and Bwlch-y-groes. Formerly a hamlet around an inn, the village developed after the coming of the Whitland to Cardigan railway in 1885.
