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.
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.
