Aberffrwd is a village located in the Rheidol Valley, Ceredigion, Wales.
The hamlet is about seven miles east of Aberystwyth and is reached via the A4120 road from Aberystwyth.
The Rheidol Valley was once home to a mining community, but has since become better known for its rural beauty; the heritage railway; and the hydroelectric power station.
The Vale of Rheidol Railway is a narrow-gauge heritage railway that runs for 12 miles (19km) between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge and passes close by the village.
The Rheidol Hydro scheme at Cwmrheidol is one of the premier visitor attractions in mid-Wales and the visitor centre is open daily from 1st May - 30th Sept. The centre has interactive educational models for the younger generation who want to learn about renewable energy as well as a café for those who simply want a quiet cup of tea.
The forests, lakes and river-side walks, and the national nature reserves of Coed Symdde-lwyd and Coed Rheidol make the Rheidol Valley and Aberffrwd a popular destination for ramblers and nature lovers alike. Excellent fishing, mountain biking and pony trekking can all be enjoyed locally.
