Holiday lets & accommodation in Edinburgh
Visit the exceptionally beautiful city of Edinburgh for an unforgettable holiday and stay in our great Edinburgh holiday cottages. With something to offer everybody, why not treat yourself to a week of retail therapy, fine dining, and culture? Discover the fascinating history of the city from our Edinburgh cottages, along the Royal Mile, at the medieval marketplace, and at the stunning Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh is steeped in rich history and traditional charm and this can be seen clearly in the beautiful architecture of the city. Spend a day taking in the beautiful buildings - the stunning juxtapositions of the Old and New towns are a truly magical aspect that give Edinburgh breaks such a unique charm.
The city also has a rich cultural and artistic history and many famous literary connections, being named in 2004 as UNESCO’s first City of Literature; Edinburgh World Heritage provides a self-guided tour where you can visit locations that inspired greats such as Robert Louis Stevenson. Coincide a holiday in Edinburgh with the wild and vibrant Edinburgh Fringe Festival and potentially see a star of the future in a play or revue piece. Another major event is the Royal Tattoo which sees the congregation of regiment massed pipes and drummers who compete for coveted awards. The Edinburgh Film Festival is one of the leading events of its kind in Europe, and it's well worth trying to bag some tickets to a preview of a big film so plan your Edinburgh self-catering accommodation and make the most of it! If you like a brilliant view, head to the peak of the nearby Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano that forms a large part of Holyrood Park.
A stay at our holiday homes in Edinburgh is also a superb prospect for hillwalkers with Arthur's Seat and the Pentland Hills on your doorstep. Whilst in Holyrood Park, it's worth taking in the Palace of Holyrood House too. Art lovers are in for a treat as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is located at the heart of the city. After a morning of viewing Scotland’s finest works of art, head to the Royal Botanic Garden to enjoy the splendid array of exotic plants in and around the glasshouses. Dogs can enjoy city breaks too - especially with our dog-friendly cottages in Edinburgh.
