Llanfachreth is a village and community in the Welsh county of Anglesey. It is located near the west coast of the island, at the head of the Alaw estuary, 6.2 miles (10.0 km) east of Holyhead, 11.7 miles (18.8 km) southwest of Amlwch and 11.3 miles (18.2 km) northwest of Llangefni. The A5025 road runs through the village. At the 2001 UK census the community had a population of 566, increasing slightly at the 2011 census to 589.

In the extreme north of the community, on the border with Llanfaethlu, stands Gronant, a Grade II* listed sub-medieval house dating from around 1540. A second house was built around 1618. In the 19th century the two houses were joined and a bell turret, used to call servants for meals, was added. The former servants' loft contains fragments of an original wallpainting. Other notable buildings in or near the village includes the Church of St Figael one mile to the east, Capel Abarim, Capel Pont yr Arw, and Bethesda Congregational Chapel, all Grade II listed buildings, but the Church of St Machraeth itself is not listed.
