Loddiswell was the third station on the line.  The station was actually over a mile away for the village of Loddiswell and was closer to the village of Woodleigh.  The station was comparable to Avonwick in that it had: a siding, passing loop and cattle dock.  The goods yard also had a loading crane for lifting heavy items on for transportation.

 

The station siding also held camping coaches and it is noted that the first coach arrived in 1934, followed by a second coach in 1958. The second camping coach was later removed in 1961 and camping coaches were removed completely from the line in 1962.
