Etchingham station has two platforms linked by a footbridge (with steps on both sides) and a station building housing the ticket office and waiting room. The building dates from 1851, when both the station and the first section of the Hastings line opened, and incorporates sandstone blocks taken from a manor house which stood on the site. Train information is provided in the form of automated announcements, LED displays and timetable posters. Disabled passengers may cross between the platforms using the level crossing to the south of the station.
There is a bistro in part of the station building, which serves coffee and breakfasts during the day, and drinks and Tapas in the evening.
