The Seaton and Beer Railway was authorised on 13 July 1863 for a line from a junction with the London and South Western Railway (LSWR), at the station that was then known as Colyton for Seaton (but which later became Seaton Junction), to Seaton. After some delays, the line was completed in 1867; it was inspected by Colonel Yolland of the Board of Trade on 27 December 1867, but he found various problems and refused to sanction the opening. After the issues had been addressed, the line was opened on 16 March 1868, together with its three stations including that at Seaton.
The station closed on 7 March 1966.
