Craigwell Cottage is situated a short distance (only one block away) from Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. This city centre cottage provides something a little different from apartment accommodation and is an ideal base from which to explore Edinburgh and to tour central Scotland. We provide a parking space in our private courtyard so that you can leave your car and set off on foot. We even have a shared secret garden with lovely views to the Palace and over to Holyrood Park. The cottage is part of a former brewery built in 1822 which was sympathetically converted in 1987 to form flats, townhouses and one semi-detached cottage which was the former gatehouse of the brewery. The cottage overlooks the central courtyard of the complex to one side, and ...Craigwell Cottage is situated a short distance (only one block away) from Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The cottage overlooks the central courtyard of the complex to one side, and over gardens with views towards the Scottish Parliament buildings and over to Salisbury Crags. Entering from the courtyard, there are two bedrooms (one double, one twin) on the ground floor along with the bathroom with over-bath shower. Upstairs is the open plan living, dining and kitchen area which is well equipped with all you'll need to self-cater - although with so many choices of restaurants and cafes in close proximity you don't need to do much cooking! Staying in self-catering rental accommodation offers a freedom to come and go as you please, get up late - or early and suit yourself on whether you cook or eat out. The owners of Craigwell Cottage have lived in Edinburgh for many years and are happy to recommend things to do and places to visit, and are on hand to offer advice and assistance before, during and after your stay. By providing quality accommodation our aim is that you will want to return to explore Edinburgh and stay at our lovely cottage over and over again. PLEASE NOTE: 3-night short breaks available all year, with the EXCEPTION of July and August (7 nights minimum) and Christmas/New Year (5 nights minimum)More

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We think it's difficult to beat a city centre location when you can walk to so much! Very happy to welcome you all back - what about a Festival visit next year?

About the neighborhood
Craigwell Cottage is situated near to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Holyrood Park and the Royal Mile in Edinburgh's World Heritage site. A brisk walk uphill will take you to Edinburgh Castle. Craigwell Cottage is part of an historic former brewery building, completed in 1827 and converted to housing in 1987 by an award-winning architect. A parking space in our private courtyard makes it an ideal location from which to set off on foot to explore the delights of Edinburgh's city centre with contrasting Old Town and New Town, or to climb some of Edinburgh's seven hills. Views towards Salisbury Crags from the cottage.
