Named for a nearby natural landmark, single platform Sugar Loaf train station in Powys is located on the long Heart of Wales line which links Swansea and Shrewsbury and runs across a remote area of Wales. Served by Arriva Trains Wales, Sugar Loaf station is the most remote of all this route's stations with monthly passenger numbers seldom reaching double figures. Used mainly by wilderness seekers and walkers, the station's nearest town is Llanwyrtyd Wells which is 6 minutes by train from Sugar Loaf station. Once popular as a spa destination, this town has several hotels

dating from the Victorian era and is home to one of Wales' few operating woollen mills which is open to visitors. Also within easy reach is the riverside market town of Llandovery – a 16 minute journey from Sugar Loaf train station. Llandovery's attractions include a Roman fort, a 12th century castle ruin and a heritage centre with historical exhibits. From Llandovery it is also easy to explore the Llyn Brianne dam with its beautiful man-made lake and Dolaucothi Gold Mines where visitors can take underground tours. A further destination for history buffs is Llandeilo – 38 minutes by train – with its evocatively ruined Carreg Cennan Castle.

Although it is remote Sugar Loaf station is directly connected to a surprisingly large number of interesting destinations with 4 trains per day in each direction. Many of the stops are at passenger request. For those seeking something a little livelier Swansea can be reached in 1 hour 4 minutes for visiting beaches, museums, Swansea Castle and the quaint Mumbles area with its Victorian pier. Shrewsbury is another large centre option by train – just over 2 hours away.
