Sigglesthorne railway station was a station on the Hull and Hornsea Railway, and served the villages of Great Hatfield and Little Hatfield in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

It opened on 28 March 1864, and was originally named "Hatfield". It was renamed (to avoid confusion with Hatfield on the East Coast Main Line), on 1 October 1874, and closed following the Beeching Report on 19 October 1964.

A section of the disused railway line is now a Local Nature Reserve.[1][2]
