Cynghordy railway station serves the rural community of Cynghordy near Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, Wales.

The station is on the Heart of Wales Line 46¾ miles (75 km) north east of Swansea. The station is located at street level at the end of a gravel track off a lane that is just off the main A483 road. The station had no facilities whatsoever (see picture, right) but a shelter has recently been provided (see station information right).

After departing this station heading northbound, the train crosses the Cynghordy Viaduct where panoramic views of the surrounding countryside can be seen.

All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales.
