Holiday Cottages in Edinburgh
Surrounded by its own private garden and warmed with the charm and luxury of a traditional wood-burning stove, Green Cottage is a welcoming, cosy place to while away a wet afternoon or take a break from the stresses of travel.
While somewhat further afield than our usual locations in Edinburgh, this wonderful holiday cottage is just a half-hour walk or ten-minute bus ride from the heart of the city and may appeal to families or those planning a more extended vacation.
The open plan kitchen/living room is traditionally furnished, with beautiful wood ceiling beams. Cosy tartan curtains, soft throws, and a plush rug add warmth to the space. Pick something to read from the well-stocked bookshelves and relax on one of the comfortable sofas, in front of the woodburning stove and the television.
The kitchen is finished with modern appliances and fully-equipped for self catering during your time in Edinburgh. The spacious dining table seats up to four, and the living room also features a small desk that can be used as a workspace.
There are two bedrooms inside the cottage, one double and one twin. The double bedroom features a lovely skylight, bedside table, lamp, and mirror, and the twin bedroom is lit by a modern floor lamp. The living room also contains a sofa bed, which can be made up for an additional two guests upon request.
The bathroom features a spacious shower cubicle and towel drying rack.
As with all our properties, towels, linen, WiFi, and a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, and local shortbread are all included. A high chair and travel cot are available by request. The cottage is also equipped with a DVD player and a selection of DVDs and books.
Around and about
The lovely garden grounds include a gated driveway for guests arriving by car. For those without, the number 23 bus departs regularly from around the corner and runs right through to the city centre.
Trinity is a charming residential area and only a short stroll from Edinburgh’s seafront. The beach at Wardie Bay, a favourite wild swimming spot with locals, is just a twelve minute walk from the cottage. You will find lovely views of the Fife and the Firth of Forth there, as well as some of Edinburgh’s best seafood restaurants nearby – Loch Fyne Seafood and Grill is excellent, and The Fishmarket just beside Newhaven Lighthouse is known for its delicious fish and chips.
A 10 minute walk towards the centre of town will take you to Edinburgh’s wonderful Royal Botanic Gardens, just one of the many things to do while visiting Edinburgh. Nearby, you will find plenty of cafes, shops, and restaurants in quaint, bustling neighbourhood of Stockbridge, which is also home to a lively Sunday farmers’ market. Past Stockbridge, you will reach the Georgian New Town, with Edinburgh’s Old Town and city centre attractions just beyond.
