Cwm Mabws is located on the outskirts of the village, within the parish boundary on the A487 in the county of Ceredigion, nine miles South of Aberystwyth and six miles North of Aberaeron, Wales.

Last night a DAF XF Euro 6 HGV lorry tried to make a delivery in Llanrhystud, turning off the B4337 along the Cwm Mabws narrow country lane, on reaching Mabws Hall the heavy goods vehicle was unable to navigate the sharp corners and hill due to its length and trailer weight. Later the same day, Friday 3 March, it reversed all the way back to Pont Dol-boeth where it parked up overnight.
