The station is located closer to the villages of Crossgates and Fron than it is to Penybont itself, and is now the closest station to the town of Rhayader, about 9 miles to the west.

A small wooden waiting shelter is located next to the information screen, with a barrow crossing linking the platform to the car park and main entrance from the A44.[2]

All trains serving the station are operated by Transport for Wales. There are four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday (plus a fifth northbound train on weekdays only), and two services on Sundays.[3]
