Edinburgh Cottage in City Centre + Parking + Wi-Fi

Visited by Tripadvisor
Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
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 over gardens with views towards the Scottish P...

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.
