Opened in 1846 by the North British Railway, Cockburnspath was a two-platform through station, the offices being situated on the S-bound platform. The station closed in 1951, although the railway itself remains in operation as a section of the Edinburgh to London main line. Since its closure, part of the offices continued to be occupied as a dwelling, but the former booking office remaining relatively intact. The building itself is roughly 'H'-plan and single-storeyed, is built from local dressed pink sandstone, and has a gabled slate roof with deep overhanging eaves. At the time of survey in 2002, the building was in the process of being refurbished and converted into a dwelling.
