Description:
Aberdovey railway station (Welsh: Aberdyfi) serves the seaside resort of Aberdyfi in Gwynedd, Wales. The station is on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services every 2 hours (weekday daytimes) calling at all stations between Machynlleth and Pwllheli, including Tywyn, Barmouth, Harlech and Porthmadog. Passengers can connect at Machynlleth for trains to Aberystwyth or Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton and Birmingham New Street.

Originally a two-platform station with a short branch line (only a few hundred yards long) to Aberdovey Harbour, the station is now a single-platform, unstaffed halt. Like many stations in Wales and the North of England, the station was constructed before standard platform heights were established and is very low. A specially designed raised section has been constructed to improve accessibility for passengers.

The original station building is in use as a private residence.it is located next to a static caravan park which is all that lies between the station and the stretch of coastline exiting between Aberdyfi and Tywyn. And next to the award wining Aberdyfi golf course.
