Llanddewi Rhydderch (the Welsh translation) is a village in Monmouthshire, Wales off the B4233 road, roughly five miles from Abergavenny.

The township of Llanddewi Rhydderch grew around the small "llan", or monastic cell named after St. David. There is also a Baptist Chapel on the edge of the village.

It was a civil parish in Abergavenny Rural District from 1894 until 1935. In 1935, in a move to reduce the number of parishes within the rural district, Llanthewy Rytherch was absorbed into the civil parish of Llanfoist Fawr.
