Llangattock Llingoed (Welsh: Llangatwg Lingoed) is a small rural village and civil parish in Monmouthshire, Wales. It is located approximately five miles north of Abergavenny, between Abergavenny and Grosmont, a few miles south of the Wales-England border. Offa's Dyke Path passes through the village.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Llangattock-Llingoed from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"LLANGATTOCK-LLINGOED, a parish in Abergavenny district, Monmouth; on the river Trothy, 2¾ miles SE by S of Pandy [railway] station, and 5 ½ NE of Abergavenny. Post town: Abergavenny. Acres: 1,926. Real property: £1,644. Population: 206. Houses: 47. The property is divided among a few. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Llandaff. Value: £144. Patron: the Bishop of Llandaff. The church is dedicated to St. Cadocus, and is good. Charities, £6."

In 1935, in a move to reduce the number of parishes within Abergavenny Rural District, Llangattock Llingoed was absorbed into the new civil parish of Grosmont Fawr.
