Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
Craigwell Cottage is situated a short distance (only one block away) from Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. This city centre cottage provides something a little different from apartment accommodation and is an ideal base from which to explore Edinburgh and to tour central Scotland. We provide a parking space in our private courtyard so that you can leave your car and set off on foot. We even have a shared secret garden with lovely views to the Palace and over to Holyrood Park.

The cottage is part of a former brewery built in 1822 which was sympathetically converted in 1987 to form flats, townhouses and one semi-detached cottage which was the former gatehouse of the brewery.

The cottage overlooks the central courtyard of the complex to one side, and over gardens with views towards the Scottish P...

My wife, daughter and myself had a great stay at the cottage. It has everything you could need and was very comfortable. We walked everywhere from there so it is in a great location. Edinburgh is also a brilliant city to explore. We will be back

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We think it's difficult to beat a city centre location when you can walk to so much! Very happy to welcome you all back - what about a Festival visit next year?

We (2 couples) stayed for 3 nights in September and loved Craigwell Cottage. The cottage is clean and comfortable and the facilities excellent. We were met by Susan who showed us around and provided plenty of advice and was available if required during our stay. The bedrooms are not huge, but a good size and very comfortable.

Edinburgh Cottage is a lovely cottage close to the Royal Mile, Scottish Parliament and Palace of Holyroodhouse. It is close to Waverley Station. The Cottage was very clean and extraordinarily well equipped. A real home away from home. It was warm and cosy which was good in the early summer cold snap. Susan was very helpful and Met us at...

About the neighbourhood
Craigwell Cottage is situated near to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Holyrood Park and the Royal Mile in Edinburgh's World Heritage site. A brisk walk uphill will take you to Edinburgh Castle. Craigwell Cottage is part of an historic former brewery building, completed in 1827 and converted to housing in 1987 by an award-winning architect. A parking space in our private courtyard makes it an ideal location from which to set off on foot to explore the delights of Edinburgh's city centre with contrasting Old Town and New Town, or to climb some of Edinburgh's seven hills. Views towards Salisbury Crags from the cottage.
