Meifod is a small village 7 miles north-west of Welshpool in mid Wales on the A495 road and located in the valley of the River Vyrnwy. The River Banwy converges with the River Vyrnwy approximately two miles to the west of the village.

It is noted as the royal burial ground of many of the kings and princes of Powys at various sites around the village. At the village centre is the Church of St Tysilio and St Mary which occupies a very large site. In addition, in common with many Welsh villages, there are a number of chapels with the village and its catchment area. The village has one Pub, the King's Head, two convenience shops (one with a post office), an art gallery, a Bric-a-Brac shop and a garage.

The village has a Primary School, Ysgol Meifod (formerly Meifod County Primary (or CP) School) and a modern Village Hall located next door which provides facilities for a wide variety of clubs and societies.

Dyffryn Hall, a Georgian manor house, is situated to the west of the village and was home to Clement Davies, the Montgomeryshire MP and leader of the post-war Liberal Party between 1945 and 1956.

The Meifod valley hosted the National Eisteddfod in 2003.
