Llanystumdwy is small village on the Llŷn Peninsula in north Wales, although it is not regarded as being part of Lleyn, but belonging instead to the local region of Eifionydd.
It is located at the point where the A497 between Criccieth to the east and Pwllheli to the west crosses the River Dwyfor.
It is most notable as the village where David Lloyd George, one of the better known British Prime Ministers lived as a boy until he was 16, and where he picked up his political nous and hatred for the land-owning aristocracy from his lay-preacher uncle. His grave is located in woodland on the outskirts of the village, designed by well known architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and inscribed with a poem by Lloyd George's nephew Dr William George, a former Archdruid of Wales. There is also a museum of Lloyd George memorabilia in the village. The village of stone houses is largely an architectural conservation area that has several listed buildings, including Lloyd George's residence, the local inn Tafarn y Plu (also known in English as "The Feathers"), and a house opposite believed to be as old as two hundred and seventy years.
