The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway opened the station on 1 September 1906 as "Southease and Rodmell Halt", to serve two villages in the Ouse Valley; Southease, 0.5 miles (800 m) to the west, and the slightly larger Rodmell, more than 1 mile (1.6 km) away.
There was a racecourse between the railway line and the River Ouse from the late 1920s to the early 1940s
The station is unmanned and has two platforms, each with a PERTIS machine. There is a level crossing immediately north of the station leading to Itford Farm and the A26 road.
