Lustleigh was the penultimate station on this 12.3 mile (20 km) branchline off the South Devon Main Line. It had a single platform and one siding. The platform survives and the station building has been greatly enlarged.
The Moretonhampstead and South Devon Railway company was formed in 1861, and work on the line commenced in 1863. The line opened to the public in 1866 and converted from broad gauge to standard gauge in 1892.
The station closed to passengers on 28 February 1959, with goods trains continuing until 1964. The station was used on 28 February 1931  for the film The Hound of the Baskervilles, its name being temporarily changed to Baskerville.
