This is a two platform station with a fine footbridge and timber waiting shelter on the eastbound platform. It is immediately west of Wetheral Viaduct which crosses the River Eden. A modern, but traditionally styled, brick and timber shelter is on the westbound platform. A stone built railway building, now a house, with a glazed canopy is at the east end of the eastbound platform. Platforms are staggered.
A third platform face was added at the west end of the westbound platform, reached by reversal. This no longer exists.
The signal box was located at the top of the bank on the south side of the station, this viewpoint gave it a view over the tightly curved station.
Over the Wetheral Viaduct was a goods yard at Corby Gates Signal Box.
