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."

Joy - verified booking

"We've stayed in a few cottages and this rates as the best so far. From the welcoming flowers, milk, bread and bottle of wine to the spotless kitchen, bathroom and living area and comfortable beds we had everything we needed to allow us to go out and about yet still look forward to getting 'home'. Yes it did feel like that. Everything was of a high quality and we particularly liked the reclining chairs, breakfast bar and that everything we needed was there, even a spaghetti server! Mr& Mrs Blair were welcoming but not intrusive and helpful with info about local amenities and the folder of places to go was very comprehensive. Location perfect for exploring both Edinburgh and Glasgow by train, free parking at the railway station much appreciated! So much to see and do we only saw the 'Edinburgh' side so need to go back and go west to see what Glasgow and surrounding areas have to offer. This is a perfect base and location, what more can we say?"

Beth - verified booking

"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."

Carol - verified booking

"Fascadale cottage is a fabulous, warm, clean and cosy cottage set in a quiet location amid beautiful countryside. The fixtures, fittings and furniture are all of the highest standard. The owners could not be more welcoming and helpful. We stayed here in April 2016 and experienced every type of weather possible in the week with some cold nights, yet the heating always kept the cottage warm and comfortable. The huge Sky TV in the lounge was an added bonus as was the extra TV in the ground floor bedroom. The local train station with free parking was ideal for trips into Edinburgh and Glasgow without worrying about where to park the car! This cottage is ideally placed for visiting so many attractions. We intend to visit again next year."

George - verified booking

"On reaching our destination, we were met with this long, winding, very rough farm track. The cottage itself is way out in the country and the views are indeed very nice, but the road leading into Linlithgow is narrow and quite busy. Inside the cottage it was very warm and welcoming and there is a large bedroom with a comfortable bed and the large bathroom has everything you could want. The huge letdown however, is the tiny uncomfortable settee in the living room. I notice other guests have pointed this out and yet no action has been taken. The owner is very nice and I regret having to point out these faults, but if I had known about the horrendous approach, I would never have considered this cottage."
