Tavistock North was a railway station operated by the Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway but formed part of the Exeter to Plymouth railway of the LSWR. serving the town of Tavistock. The station opened on 2 June 1890 and closed on 6 May 1968. The main station building has been completely restored by its current owners and converted into 3 luxury self-catering cottages and has been awarded 5 stars by Visit Britain. The Station Master's house is being restored to a private dwelling, while the extensive goods yard is now known as Kilworthy Park and houses the offices of West Devon Borough Council. The trackbed for around a mile south of Tavistock North station is open to the public as a footpath and nature reserve, and it is possible to walk across the viaducts that overlook the town.
The trackbed south of Tavistock is almost intact to Bere Alston, where it joins the present-day Tamar Valley Line. There has been discussion regarding the re-opening of a rail link for a number of years. Engineering assessment shows the trackbed and structures (bridges, tunnels etc.) to be in sound condition.
