Rhostïe or Rhostie is a village, community and ecclesiastical parish in Ceredigion, Wales.

Before 1974 the village was in the historic county of Cardiganshire and, between 1974 and 1996 in the County of Dyfed. In 1996 it became part of the modern county of Ceredigion.


RHÔSDIAU (RHÔS-DDÛ), a parish in the upper division of the hundred of ILAR, county of CARDIGAN, SOUTH WALES, 7 miles (S. by E.) from Aberystwith. This parish, which is situated within a few miles of Cardigan bay, is of very small extent. The surface is varied, and in some part mountainous; and the surrounding scenery is characterized rather by features of rugged boldness than of pleasing or picturesque appearance: the soil in the lower grounds is productive, and the declivities of the hills afford scanty pasturage for sheep and young cattle. Its distance from any great turnpike road renders this place difficult of access, and it has therefore little intercourse, even with the neighbouring places. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, having for some time been in a state of ruinous dilapidation, was rebuilt in 1816.[1]
