Where is Enterkine House?

Enterkine House is located in Ayrshire, which is a county in the southwest of Scotland. The closest largest town to the venue is Ayr, roughly a 20-minute drive away.

The closest airport to the venue is Glasgow Prestwick, around 30 minutes away, and the closest rail connection is Ayr. However, with the venue very rural, it's highly recommended to have a car to visit the venue to make access as easy as possible.

Why choose Enterkine Wedding Hotel for your wedding ceremony? 

Enterkine House is a great wedding venue for many reasons. First, the venue sits on a beautiful 350-acre property with landscaped gardens and scenic countryside views that can provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos. With various spaces, couples can plan their day based on their preferences. 

Enterkine House also has its own catering team, using local and seasonal ingredients to create bespoke menus. Finally, on-site venues offer accommodation for up to 30 people, making it convenient for couples and their families travelling from far away.  

How many guests can it hold?

The Enterkine House can accommodate up to 130 wedding guests for your ceremony and reception. However, your exact capacity will depend on the venue you choose and the layout of your wedding. 

The venue has a variety of indoor and outdoor areas, including a saloon, conservatory and rose garden, to accommodate different group sizes and tastes. They also offer weekday wedding packages that require fewer numbers than at the weekend.

Spaces inside Enterkine Country House.

Enterkine house has a variety of wedding venues, each with its character and charm. Some of the rooms available for weddings at the Ayrshire country house are:

The Grand Hall

Accommodation at the Enterkine House Wedding Venue.

Enterkine House offers on-site accommodation for up to 50 guests in various rooms and suites. There are 14 rooms, including four double rooms, four twin rooms, and six suites. Each room is individually designed and furnished to provide a comfortable and luxurious stay. Rooms are located both in the main building and the adjacent coach house, which has been converted into additional accommodation. 

There is also the recent addition of the lovely wooden lodges and byre, which provide accommodation just a few minutes walk from the venue.

Best timing for your wedding.

The Enterkine House is the perfect venue for weddings in any season. If you like sunny weather and outdoor parties, you might like the summer months (June to August). But spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are also good choices if you're looking for cheaper options and want a change of scenery with flowers and fall foliage. Winter weddings (December to February) are also very cosy and romantic, with snowy landscapes and festive decorations.

Unique Locations for your couple's photos.

My favourite part of weddings is the couple's photos after the ceremony. Knowing the best places to go allows us to spend your time wisely and return you to your guests as quickly as possible. ! 

The grounds of the Hotel are beautiful. The Hotel sits right in the heart of the Ayrshire countryside, with it comes epic countryside views. The venue also has lots of great spaces inside the venue that makes for the perfect photo backdrop. 

Be sure to find the Gin Bar backdrop outside for the perfect Instagram-able moment!
