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!

    "A return visit as we knew it would suit our needs to be near the city but also at the shore. Cosy and comfortable as expected and we had a good stay with mostly good weather and some lovely sunrises and sunsets.On a positive we found the excellant local playarea ,up the hill behind the church & hall in a former walled garden. Great for playing football with equipment for all ages and watching the planes flying over to airport. The walk up to Cramond bridge and the playarea there was lovely through the autumnal woods. Also got across to Cramond island this time with great views up and down the Forth. A few maintenance and equipment issues such as a window with broken catch that had to be wedged shut to keep personal conversations from cafe below being heard and a cold draught out, loose wall plug sockets, several lightbulbs out, still no glass dishes for cooking in oven or microwave and there was no folder with info on area or appliance instructions. Sofas need a good clean beneath cushions as we found out when looking for a toy.This time we were aware of more night time visits of cars with engines running and early morning dog walkers abusing the no parking on harbour, perhaps the gates need to be shut at corner overnight.The local pub which had a reputation for poor service & food is now shut so we weren't missing out as the bistro below and nearby Cramond Falls cafe are good during day.All in all a good base for exploring with just a few issues that need addressed."

    "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."

    "S23474 is simple beautiful. The views from the kitchen and the lounge are stunning and the walks along the river Almond are breathtaking. The house ws much bigger than we expected, and with lots of lovely, interesting features, such as the lovely little walk way through to the front door. We were there in October and the autumn colours in the area were perfect; we decorated the house with pumpkins and candlelight and had a wonderful time. I would happily live in S23474. However, we did not bring our car as we came to Edinburgh by train, and there is no local shop in Cramond, so you have to come prepared. I had a Sainsbury's delivery which worked well.The number 41 bus runs an excellent service from the village into Edinburgh and you can walk along the river up to the Queensferry road and get a bus to Queensferry to the stunning Forth Bridge."

    "A really great little place. It was absolutely perfect for exploring the surrounding areas as there was parking on site but the train station was an easy 10 minute walk away with very regular trains to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Various supermarkets were all within 10 minute drive.The cottage itself was lovely, although there didn't look to be any disabled access but this wasn't a problem for us. Bedrooms are downstairs with the master having a very nice outlook into the garden which would be lovely in nicer weather. The kitchen/dining/living area upstairs was spacious enough for the two of us and had everything we needed for the duration of our stay.Unfortunately, our hosts weren't able to be around during our stay but they were still in touch and we knew we could contact them if we needed anything."
