About us

A warm welcome awaits you at Enterkine Country House. Recently beautifully refurbished in contemporary style, we offer affordable luxury with delightful dining, picturesque views over the River Ayr and friendly ambiance. The House was built in the late 1930s to the highest specification by Mr William S Houston, a Scot, who returned from Canada with a design for a house quite new to this country.

As you would expect from a classic country house, Enterkine belongs to its guests and it is very much their home for the duration of their stay. Guests arrive at Enterkine to be welcomed into the elegant entrance hall. From there they are inevitably drawn to the River View Restaurant with its log fire in the winter months. During the summer months we have outside seating in our lovely gardens for Drinks, Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea.

Whatever the season, guests can enjoy spectacular views over the vast Estate. The contemporary Private Dining Room suitable for 12 guests with its own Hendricks Gin Trolley, Glenfiddich Whisky Library with a vast array of 70 whiskies and our beautiful, fully stocked bar. We also have a fabulous Garden Room for Private Dining, Functions and Events with its own private bar suitable for Small Wedding and your Special Occasion. Enterkine provides guests with the right setting whatever the occasion, whatever their mood.

We have 6 delightful bedrooms in the main hotel all with period features and en-suite bathrooms. Our Honeymoon Suite, the Woodland Lodge is the perfect romantic getaway nestled in the shade of mature trees. Enterkine also has 7 standard bedrooms in our converted farmhouse, a few minutes' walk from the main hotel with en-suite shower rooms and plenty of its own parking. Children are very welcome at Enterkine with our family room available and dogs are also welcome to stay over!

We are 20 minutes’ drive from Dumfries House (owned by Prince Charles), Burns' Cottage and Museum and also Culzean Castle is around 40 minutes' drive from the Hotel. Come and experience Ayrshire and the best that Enterkine has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you!
