The station lies between the two villages, around 1 km east of Hope, and also serves Bradwell and Castleton, the latter being a notable tourist spot, famous for its caverns and the gemstone called Blue John.
The station was renamed from Hope Village to Hope on 6 May 1974. The Summer 1961 timetable showed it as 'Hope (for Castleton & Bradwell)'. At that time North Western and Pashley provided connecting buses to those villages to meet most trains
The typical off-peak service from the station is one train every two hours to Sheffield and one to Manchester Piccadilly. This is increased on Saturdays to one train per hour in each direction and on Sundays the service is two-hourly.
East Midlands Trains call here with the first service of the day to Manchester and also on the final return working. All other services are provided by Northern Rail. A normal weekday service operates on most Bank holidays.
