Lovely cottage in great location
Really lovely home, comfortable, clean, well equipped and great location for easy access to city centre. Lots of useful advice re buses, taxis, cost etc as well as expected information on tourist attractions. Nice little extras which is appreciated. Extremely comfortable beds with lovely sheets!! Thank you - would love to return!
Charming cottage in great location
My college roommate came to Edinburgh to celebrate our 65th birthdays, and we really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this cottage. Daniela left cookies and tea for us when we arrived, and she was very flexible with our arrival time. The eclectic artwork was charming, and the place was clean and cozy. We were a bit concerned about getting around Edinburgh by bus, but there were bus stops nearby and we had no problems. We arrived at the train station and easily connected to Bus 25 to get to the cottage. Bus 25 was our best friend getting in and out of the city! We did take a taxi to get to the airport, and that worked out quite well. Thank you Daniella for sharing your charming cottage!
Cozy, quiet, and comfortable
Clean and interestingly decorated character cottage. Very quiet area yet only a walk or short bus ride to downtown Edinburgh. Daniella met us when we arrived and couldn’t have been nicer. Stayed for 6 nights and used it as a base to explore the Scottish Borders and other areas. Parking is available but the streets are narrow a little tricky to navigate especially for an American who is used to driving on the other side of the road. But easily accomplished with a little patience. Would definitely recommend.
Cozy apartment in a nice area
We enjoyed the apartment. The bed was comfortable and furnishing homey and well kept. The apartment had everything you could need to a wonderful stay. The garden was beautiful. It was convenient to the bus line to go to Edinburgh. The area was nice for walking and we enjoyed dinner at the Bijou on the corner.
There are three bus stops just 1 min away. It only takes 15 min to get to the city centre (No's 25,12, 49 and 35), 20min to the Botanic Gardens (no 21), 15 min to Portobello beach (no 21 and 12). Taxi to and from the centre is around £7 and takes about 10 min.
Arriving from Edinburgh Airport: Take the Airlink 100 to Princes Street/Waverley Station and then no 25 or 12 to Gladstone place. Ask the driver if you are unsure. There is a co-op pharmacy, a pub and a lovely cafe called Bijou at the corner closest to our flat.
Arriving from Edinburgh Waverley station you can also take buses 25 or 12
Another option is to take bus no 49 which leaves from North Bridge, get off at Burns st. Our home is a 5 minute walk from here.
If there is more than 3 of you it probably makes more sense to take a taxi as it costs as much as the bus and takes you right onto our street.
If you are wanting to use public transport, make sure you have the right change ready. A single ticket (for one bus only, no changes) costs £1,70/ adult. A day ticket sets you back £4 but can be used all day on as many buses you want.
Tip: Download the Edinburgh Transport app, which is brilliant. Just type in address and it will tell you exactly where to go and which bus to hop on.
The bus stop with a bus that takes you right into the center is just 1 min away. This area is also very close to Leith Harbour (about 10min walk) with many award winning restaurants and lovely cafe's and a big shopping centre (about 15 min walk) which also provides access to the Royal Yacht Britannia. 5min walk away there is a big supermarket (TESCO) for most shopping requirements, but there are also a few convenience stores just 2 min away on an adjourning street.
