Lympstone station was opened with the railway on 1 May 1861. It was renamed Lympstone Village in the 1990s to avoid confusion with the new Lympstone Commando railway station that had opened on 3 May 1976.
It is situated on an embankment, with a single platform; a disused second platform is now heavily overgrown. To the south the line crosses the village on a low viaduct. The station is unstaffed and tickets cannot be purchased at the station. There are stands for bicycle parking and a 20-space car park.
Lympstone Village is served by trains on the Avocet Line from Exmouth to Exeter St Davids. Beyond St Davids they generally continue to either Paignton or Barnstaple. Connections are available at Exeter Central for Pinhoe and stations to London Waterloo station; passengers for other main line stations change at Exeter St Davids.
