Duhonw is a rural community in Powys, Wales, to the south of Builth Wells (Welsh: Llanfair ym Muallt), comprising scattered farms and dwellings.[1] Covering an area of 4,376 hectares (16.90 sq mi), it is bounded to its north by the Afon Irfon, to its south by Mynydd Epynt and Banc y Celyn and to its east the rivers Duhonw and Wye (Afon Gwy).[1][2] Llangammarch Wells' (Welsh: Llangamarch) is to its west.

Its population was 294, according to the 2011 census;[2] a 2% fall since the 300 people noted in 2001.[3]

The 2011 census showed 14.6% of the population could speak Welsh, a rise from 9.2% in 2001.[4]

Duhonw Community Council was created following a 1985 review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for Wales, amalgamating the four small communities of Llanddewi'r Cwm, Llangynog, Llanynis and Maesmynis.[1]

Duhonw is part of the Sennybridge Training Area,[5] and is listed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
