Staverton railway station is situated on the South Devon Railway, a heritage railway in Devon, England. It serves the village of Staverton.

The station was opened by the Buckfastleigh, Totnes and South Devon Railway on 1 May 1872. The railway was amalgamated into the Great Western Railway in 1897 and this in turn was nationalised into British Railways on 1 January 1948.

The station closed to passengers in November 1958 although goods traffic on the line continued until 7 September 1962.

It was re-opened by the Dart Valley Railway, a heritage railway, on 5 April 1969. The South Devon Railway Trust took over the running of the line on 1 January 1991.
