Charming, dog-friendly garden cottage with private parking and EV charge point near the meadows and The University of Edinburgh.
Originally built as a billiard room and summer house, the Victorian cottage consists of a double bedroom with adjoining shower room and WC, and an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. The main area boasts a large cupola with velux blind, traditional, wooden floors, stained glass windows and a wood-burning stove for that cosy, cottage feel.
Holiday cottage in Edinburgh with free parking
The cottage is a mix of charming quirkiness, faded grandeur and modern convenience. We think it may have been the summer house of the family who originally owned the main house (which is Georgian) and was added on as part of a makeover in the late 1800s. Please note that the cottage can only be accessed by walking through the adjoining garage of the main house.
There is a carpeted double bedroom, with adjoining shower-room. The main living area has two double sofa beds, with sprung mattresses, which will comfortably accommodate a family or a group of friends (though it should be noted that the single, en-suite shower room and WC can only be accessed by walking through the bedroom).
There is a dining table in the bay window with seating for six and a modern functional kitchen with dishwasher, induction hob, and combined microwave/oven. There is a Sonos system with online streaming and for the winter months, there is a wood-burning stove (though there is also a combi boiler for convenience). For an additional fee (£10) we can provide a laid fire in the stove, ready to light, and a basket of logs and kindling.
Finally, we’re happy to report that your four-legged friends are welcome in our home! If you do plan on bringing your dog please let us know in advance and be sure to follow the house rules related to pets during your stay.
