Rising steeply from the raised beach to the south of the village, the majority of the land occupies elevations of between 400 and 500 feet with a gradual increase in height towards the Mynydd Bach.
The parish of Llanrhystud conforms to the general rule and where farms of less than 5 acres are ignored, on the assumption that they were non-viable in themselves, the 158 remaining units averaged 48.6 acres in 1839.
In Llanrhystud, as in other Welsh parishes, many of these indoor servants were probably themselves the sons and daughters of farmers who had been obliged to serve a period of 'apprenticeship' away from their family hearths.
