Holiday Rental House
A gorgeous period detached cottage; forming part of the exclusive Blacket Estate in Newington. Offering guests a great opportunity to stay in their own cottage with private back terrace, yet still be close to the city centre (walkable or only 10 minutes by bus or taxi). The whole cottage has truly inspiring design touches, with Philip stark chairs in the dining room and a great mix of lovely antique furniture and modern style. We are delighted to welcome a well behaved dog to Gatekeepers Cottage * Arthur's Seat: £30 per booking....A gorgeous period detached cottage; forming part of the exclusive Blacket Estate in Newington.

What a lovely cottage. You walk in off the busy Dalkeith Road into a bright and warm home from home. 2 big double bedrooms (with wonderfully firm matteresses). The lounge leads to the kitchen diner. A small paved garden out the rear with a small...More
