“Cosy well looked after property”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Rhona's 2 bedroomed terraced house was lovely. We were very warmly welcomed and even had a lovely welcome pack on our arrival. The location is great with the bus stop to town being right on the door step and if you didn't want to go into town there was plenty to do out and about around the property with lots of lovely restaurants and pubs. The house was cosy, tidy and welcoming. I would say the only small thing I would mention is that it would have been nice to have some bathroom toiletries to use.

Thank you for this lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Timber Bush. I'm sorry you were disappointed regarding the toiletries. We do, as you know, provide soap, towels, toilet paper, etc. I hope it won't prevent you coming to stay next time you visit Edinburgh

We had a lovely stay in this clean, comfortable and well-equipped house. It is very well located at the shore, easy parking and easy access to the city center.
The host Maragert is very welcomed and ready to help immediately with any questions. Highly recommended!

“Leith Stay”
Reviewed September 1, 2017 for a stay in August 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We were surprised and delighted to find Timber Bush in the heart of a picturesque setting, close to so many restaurants, lovely walks and only a short bus trip to the city. Hosts Margaret and Rhona were very welcoming. We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the central city.

“Perfect house in Leith”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017
2
people found this review helpful

Recently stayed at this beautiful house for 9 days. It was perfect for our needs - quiet place to rest and unwind, as well as cook a few meals of our own and get some much needed laundry done. Margaret was helpful and the welcome pack was perfect after our long journey to Edinburgh. Leith is a friendly, quiet place to stay yet is close to the city centre and all the activities located there - bus #22 got us to Princes St in minutes. My son, husband and I plan to stay at Margaret's house when we are again in Leith.

“A wee gem”
Reviewed July 9, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This apartment is every bit as beautiful as the photos show. It's in a great location and has everything you need either there or nearby. I would thoroughly recommend it for seeing Edinburgh, and Margaret and Rhona were laid back and helpful hosts. I'll stay again if I'm in Edinburgh for sure!

“Very well equipt, comfortable house, in a great location.”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The location of Leith was great, pleanty of pubs, restaurants and a supermarket all with in a few mins walk. Many bus transport options, busses ran frequently.
The house itself was very comfortable, suited our family of 4 very well. The kitchen was very well equipt, welcome shortbread, tea/coffee and even a bottle of wine in the fridge was much appreciated.
Margaret the host was extremely helpful and friendly.
We originally booked for 3 nights and were able to extended our stay a day further as there was so much to see and do in Edinburgh.
Loved our time in Timber Bush.

“Gem of a place”
Reviewed May 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a lovely 5 night stay in April. We wanted somewhere that was family friendly and this place was great. It was clean and well maintained and nicely decorated. Great location with good local amenities and just a short bus ride to the city. Margaret was very hospital offering us great advice. Would definitely recommend!!
