Loddiswell railway station is a William Clarke-designed station on the Kingsbridge branch of the GWR.

Opened in December 1893, the stone built station was downgraded to an unstaffed halt and closed to freight in 1961. Despite local opposition it was closed on 16 September 1963 and is now a private dwelling. 'The Signal Box' annex was redeveloped as holiday accommodation and opened in 2015. Tours of the station grounds and old platform are provided by the owners by arrangement.
