Saundersfoot railway station serves the seaside village of Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, Wales. It is managed by Arriva Trains Wales. It is usually a request stop apart from the limited stop Great Western Railway Pembroke Dock services which make a scheduled stop here. The station is a mile from the village centre down a country lane 'B road' with no designated footpath. It is recommended that you book a taxi from the station if you arrive with luggage. The station is within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and about a mile from the coastal path which can be picked up about a mile down the lane at St Issell's church.

Just adjacent to the current station and line is a tunnel which formed part of the old Saundersfoot Railway. This tunnel emerges under Pentlepoir, and was the longest of a series of four running from Wisemans Bridge to Thomas Chapel. The old line now forms part of the Miners Walk.

Services[edit]

Trains call here every two hours in each direction, westwards to Pembroke Dock & eastwards to Whitland, Carmarthen and Swansea (where connections can be made for stations to Cardiff and destinations in England). There are a pair of through trains to Cardiff each day and in the summer one through working to & from London Paddington on Saturdays only. There are five trains each way on Sundays in summer & four in winter.[1]
