Llangoedmor is a village 2 miles east of Cardigan, Ceredigion, Wales.

It is also the name of a Community Council which encompasses Llechryd and parts of Penparc. Its name means "the church of the great wood", derived from the groves of oak and other trees which existed there. The remnants of the wood still exist and are now a site of Special Scientific Interest, this wood is known locally as Cwm Du (Black Valley).

In the Dark Ages it was the home of St Cynllo, whose knee imprints are said to exist in a rock, near the farm named Felin Gynllo. His feast day is 17 July. A sparsely populated area, it is mainly made up of farmsteads, the occasional mansion and standalone houses. The Croes-y-Llan area has seen the most recent building activity in the last two decades, and has seen an increase in the Anglicization of the village.

Llangoedmor was the site of a 12th-century battle. Samuel Lewis's A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (1833) states:

    "Soon after the death of Henry I, a memorable battle was fought near Crg Mawr, a conical hill in this parish, between the Welsh, commanded by Gruffydd ap Rhys and the English, in which the latter sustained a signal defeat."

These days, Llangoedmor is a popular spot for tourists, partly because of its proximity to the Preseli Hills and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
