Set on the edge of Gullane, Ricketwood House is located in a peaceful and private setting with rural countryside views, while benefitting from all the amenities of the village on the doorstep.

Gullane is well known for its beach and golf courses which surround the village. There are three golf clubs in the village: Gullane (three courses), Luffness New and Muirfield, which is located just down the road from Ricketwood House. Archerfield (two courses) and Renaissance are just outside. The surrounding countryside offers beautiful walks through woodland and along the coast. The area is also popular with water sport enthusiasts, with a coastal rowing club and sailing school located at North Berwick Harbour.

The village has a lively mix of shops, restaurants and hotels, including a Co-op, general store, butcher, German bakery, a delicatessen, a library, Post Office and the gourmet restaurants of La Potinière and the Roux restaurant at Greywalls. The larger towns of Haddington and North Berwick provide a wider range of shops, supermarkets and leisure activities.

There is an excellent primary school in the village with secondary schooling at North Berwick High School. Independent schooling is on offer at The Compass, Haddington (primary), Belhaven Hill, Dunbar (prep) and Loretto School in Musselburgh (0-18 years). For commuters to Edinburgh, most of the independent schools in Edinburgh operate a bus service and there is a train service to Edinburgh from nearby Drem (4 miles), North Berwick (5 miles) or Longniddry (6 miles). The airport and motorway links are easily accessible via the A1 and the Edinburgh City Bypass.
