About Rickwood

Rickwood House is situated quietly, near Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Course. We overlook the village and the Irish Sea yet we are only a few minutes walk from the harbour and attractions of Portpartick. We are also handy for a short stay if you are going to Ireland on the Cairnryan Ferry or Loch Ryan Port and would like to see what South West Scotland has to offer.

Our Guest House has been modernised to a high standard and offers quality accommodation in six stylish bedrooms. All have en-suite showers, some have baths also, well stocked hospitality trays and DVD players. Two are on the ground floor. Recently our heating system was upgraded to biomass so there`s always plenty of hot water.

We have a conservatory lounge for our guests to relax at any time of day either with a drink or just to enjoy the view. We have a large garden with seating areas for your comfort and new for 2015 is our outdoor hot tub by Vileroy & Boch.

Our master bedroom has been refurbished to a luxurious standard and is named the “Factors Suite” – to provide that extra touch of luxury. Please see our rooms & prices page for details. We also have a ground floor twin bedded room and king-size double room upgraded to a similar standard as The Factors Suite.
