Holiday Cottages In Edinburgh To Rent

Holiday Cottages in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city made for exploring, peeling back the layers of history, discovering tucked away gastronomic delights, stumbling across some amazing culture and, if it’s festival season, having a great laugh. It’s a friendly city, and one of the cultural hotspots in the UK. Holiday cottages in Edinburgh are a great way to experience this world-class city, whether you’re looking for a cosy couple’s hideaway or something spacious and conveniently located for the festival’s main shows.

Visit Edinburgh and you’ll discover a city where the streets are brimming with great shops, museums and historic landmarks, as well as top quality bars and restaurants. Travel to Edinburgh during Edinburgh Fringe and you can dial everything up a few notches, as the city comes alive with music, drama and, of course, comedy. If you’re looking for self-catering accommodation that has bags of character, then you’ll find lots of Edinburgh cottages to choose from all year round.

What’s so great about a holiday cottage in Edinburgh?

Whenever you decide to visit Edinburgh, there’s bound to be something amazing going on. With 12 festivals happening throughout the year – from the International Film Festival in June to the Fringe in August – Scotland’s capital is awash with culture and is an absolute must visit. Even before Edinburgh became the world’s best city for festivals, it had an important place in history, as you’ll find out when you tour landmarks such as Holyrood royal Palace, which was built in the 16th century.

Edinburgh is also an important literary destination, home of some famous authors such as Robert Louis Stephenson, and an inspiration to a certain Ms. Rowling. The city itself has a fantastical quality, especially as it is overlooked by the majestic extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, which is great for a spot of hiking and delivers some of the best views of the city and surrounding countryside.

Cottages holidays are a great way to experience this amazing city. If you’re planning a holiday in Edinburgh then make it a home from home trip with some of the best Edinburgh cottages, and explore a city that just keeps on giving, whether you’re a fan of culture, history or just having a bonnie old time!

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Edinburgh To Rent.

Marjorie - verified booking

"I chose this place because I knew the area and the building, having at one stage thought of buying one of the flats there. The entrance to the apartments is dismal and dirty. The apartment is nicely appointed and sitting room and bedroom are nice rooms despite there being an over abundance of tartan. Flowers and a welcome basket awaited us which was nice. However, the bed was very uncomfortable and noisy as though springs had given way. In the lounge, the settee covers looked in need of a wash, but the worst bit was the kitchen which is shabby and in need of a visit from IKEA. An awkward shape but what shelves are there are littered with baskets etc so nowhere to put any shopping. The bathroom needed finger marks taken off the door, the bath is fine but the shower is hopeless. Also, the tv is temperamental and only really works using the iPlayer. The entrance to the drive down to the house is tricky due to the parked cars on the road. Having said all that, the owner was very pleasant on the phone and I imagine will put things right."

"This is the second year we have stayed at the cottage and once again we have thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, we enjoy the amenities around the area and chilling at night in the cottage which is lovely and quiet. The owners are amazing and very accommodating and go out of their way to ensure our stay is always very enjoyable. The cottage is a bungalow and is adapted in the bathroom to accommodate persons who have mobility issues, this is such a bonus for us as we have persons in our group who do benefit greatly from this and I would definitely recommended the cottage should anyone require this for themselves. Overall the cottage for us is a great find and we are already planning our third visit as it really does have a home from home feeling whereby; all of us instantly feel at ease, chilled and able to relax and we are all looking forward very much to our next visit, we would like to thank the owners for their very welcoming hospitality."

Alastair - verified booking

"1st to 8th June 2018 : Had a lovely week even though weather was mixed; cottage had games, tv, video and reading facilities. Sun room looked out over farmers field where the cows and calves were kept, the very well kept garden complete with garden furniture for our use. The cottage was situated off the main road so only limited traffic, mainly farming. This was my first holiday to Scotland but my partner hails from Dalkeith and was taking me on a tour of East Lothian where he grew up. Loved the coastal towns, enjoyed drives up into the hills, also the picnics we made. Many historical venues to explore - the week passed far too quickly. Goes without saying, we are planning our next visit! Thank you Josephine, we have been spoiled. Julie & Alastair, West Midlands."

"The pictures of this property don't do it justice. I was a bit concerned that the cottage might be on the small side but it is like a tardis! The ceilings are nice and high and the rooms are very spacious. The location is amazing. It is a beautiful spot, right by the water but you only have to drive a few minutes down the road and you have easy access to the main roads leading to Leith, Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Forth bridge. There is a small Sainsburys, just down the road and a larger industrial estate with a supermarket and retail shops, which is about a 5-10 minute drive away. My daughter loved feeding the ducks and swans and there are some nice walks along the water front and up to the weir. We had a great time."

"on arrival there was a really bad smell that only improved slightly after buying an air freshener, there was no complementary tea coffee and after a long journey this was essential. the 4 that we scored was for the equipment not the comfort .the small armchair was uncomfortable and the two seater sofa in need of a good clean. the bedroom stated that the beds could be joined again this was not the case. The charge that they made for the dogs we also think should have been included in price.Stated as being a cottage but had up stair occupants who actually worked on the estate so were up early and moving around above our heads. The worst experience we have ever had staying in a cottage"
