Property Description

A unique house in a fabulous historic setting at the foot of Edinburgh Castle, this unusual wedge shaped house is built onto the wall around St Cuthbert’s church, moments walk from Princes Street gardens. Formerly a school house and then the watchkeeper’s cottage, it is furnished in a dramatic, appropriately Gothic style, and only 270 yards from the West End. It is hard to imagine any more central a location. Restaurants, galleries, historic buildings and a Saturday farmer’s market are a few minutes’ walk. Shops 250 yards.

Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Living/dining room. Galley-style kitchen.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fantastic location a quiet little corner right in the middle of Edinburgh. May 2012.
  2. A wonderful central location with quirky interior. Feb 2012.
  3. The location of this property was superb. It is well located for doing all the "touristy" stuff. The interior decor was impressive and the view of the castle at night was amazing. Good use was made of the available space. The neighbours were very quiet (it is in the graveyard of the church). Nov 2011.
  4. Situated in a fantastic area, fantastic place, already booked again for june nxt year. Sept 2011.
  5. Location was fantastic. Aug 2010.
  6. The property was unique, a one-off. It was right in the centre of Edinburgh, walking distance to everywhere and a superb view of the castle. With parking a premium everywhere these days it was superb that we had our own space so that we could take the car on days out or leave it if walking around Edinburgh, without worrying about cost or whether it would still be there on our return! The pictures on the website were exactly as the premises looked, to be honest an excellent place to stay. July 2010.
  7. Location is the real point. June 2010.
  8. We enjoyed the location of the property, especially the silent neighbours!! Pretty cottage close to the grass market and castle. Bus stop nearby on Lothian road, buy a day ticket as its cheaper and enjoy exploring. June 2010.
  9. Very near to Prince’s Street, Grassmarket and all Edinburgh attractions except the Botanical Gardens. Within reasonable distance of the coast, The Trossachs and the Borders. June 2010.
  10. Good location, size, comfort. March 2010.
  11. The central location of the cottage and parking space. March 2010.
  12. Loved the decoration, warmth and location - nothing better than coming back to a warm cottage after braving the Scottish winter! Felt that a little bit of sprucing up was needed (especially in the bathroom) but overall excellent value and was very pleased. Feb 2010.
  13. Very dramatic furnishings. Dec 2009.
  14. Location, layout, decor, views, short distance from the rail station. Nov 2009.
  15. The property was ideally situated, clean warm and a perfect base. Oct 2009.
  16. Quirky decor. Oct 2009.
  17. Ideal central location, yet quiet and relaxed. Unique features. July 2009.
  18. The property was truly unique. In the most fabulous location, both in terms of convenience for exploring Edinburgh and the festival and in terms of peace and quiet at night which is hard to find in such a big city. Being able to see the Castle and the fabulous gothic surroundings. One of the most interesting and fabulous places I have ever had the privilege to visit. Aug 2009.
  19. Fabulous little cottage, I have recommended this one to a friend. Jan 2009.
  20. Fabulous cottage - surprisingly large and comfortable - perfect location. We will be back often. Feb 2009.
