Rhosgadfan is a Welsh village in the county of Gwynedd. It is notable as the birth place of Kate Roberts, the author of a book of short stories entitled Te yn y Grug. The Welsh TV programme C'mon Midff�ld was filmed in the village hall, prior to its destruction. The hall was destroyed in a blaze believed to have been caused by arson. As yet, nobody has been brought to justice.

The view is of Anglesey, Yr Eifl and by walking around you can reach common land called Comin Uwch Gwyrfai and Y Lon Wen. Nearby villages include Y Fron and Rhostryfan. Rhosgadfan is on the border of Snowdonia National Park. The nearest town is Caernarfon and the nearest city is Bangor.

The closest mountain is Moel Tryfan and people from the school walk up often to collect money for educational use. Charles Darwin visited the mountain and recognised evidence of glaciation there.

The village is not known for industry at the moment, except for farming. However, the village had a quarry behind it. The Dyffryn Nantlle (Nantlle Valley) area is well known for quarries. The one near Rhosgadfan but was closer to Y Fron was a film set for the Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The farming mostly consists of sheep but some other animals inhabit the area.
