Aberllefenni is a village in the south of Sir Meirionnydd/Merionethshire; in the Welsh council area of Gwynedd. It is the location of Foel Grochan, a slate quarry, which together with Hen Chwarel and Ceunant Ddu formed the Aberllefenni Slate Quarry, which extracted rock from mediaeval times until the beginning of the 21st Century.
The ancient Roman road between North and South Wales, Sarn Helen, probably ran through the village - the terrace of houses known as Pensarn (head of the causeway) may be a reference to it.
Plas Aberllefenni was a mediaeval manor house, but the older section was demolished in the 1960s and only a later wing is still standing.
The quarry reservoir, Llyn Cob, was once known as Llyn Owain Lawgoch, after the last male survivor of the princely house of Gwynedd.
