Hacheston Halt railway station was a station located in Hacheston, Suffolk situated on the Framlingham Branch.

The branch was opened in 1859, but Hacheston Halt was not opened until 1922 in an attempt by the Great Eastern Railway to improve the passenger receipts on the branch. This was a very basic station and did not even possess a platform so passengers had to use a ladder to get on and off the trains that called at the station.

The station was served by trains that operated between Framlingham and Wickham Market operated by the Great Eastern Railway until 1922, the London and North Eastern Railway (1923 to 1947) and British Railways until the withdrawal of passenger services in November 1952.
