The station was opened as North Camp & Ash Vale in 1870 by the London & South Western Railway. The name was changed to Ash Vale in 1924 [1] (the actual North Camp station is a few hundred metres away on the North Downs Line).

The original station buildings were demolished in 1972 [2] due to subsidence with a new main building built as a replacement. The station, which is on an embankment with ground level access, is managed by South Western Railway.
