Llanddowror (Welsh: Maes-y-lan) is a small, historic, relatively unspoilt village 2 miles from the town of St. Clears in Carmarthenshire in southwest Wales. The village is reachable via the scenic A477 road. The village was famously the home of Griffith Jones, the 18th-century Christian educator. Among the local attractions are the ruins of St. Clears Castle. Some rental cottages are available in Llanddowror, as are some B&B rooms. More lodgings and dining options are available in St. Clears.

Historic Laugharne Castle is 4 miles away, with a vista of the River Tāf estuary. The Dylan Thomas Boathouse, the iconic Welsh poet's home, is very close to the castle. One of Wales' largest family attractions, Folly Farm Adventure Park is 9 miles from the village. Another medieval castle, Kidwelly Castle is about 10 miles distant.

Improbably, Llanddowror has lent its name to the British Raj-era hill station of Landour in the Lower Western Himalaya in northern India. Landour was founded in 1827 as a convalescent station for British soldiers serving in India. During British colonial rule, nostalgic British names were common in India; many of these names (e.g. Landour) survive today though many others were discarded once India achieved her freedom.
