Gatekeepers Cottage * Arthur's Seat

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Edinburgh, Scotland
A gorgeous period detached cottage; forming part of the exclusive Blacket Estate in Newington.
Offering guests a great opportunity to stay in their own cottage with private back terrace, yet still be close to the city centre (walk-able or only 10 minutes by bus or taxi).

The whole cottage has truly inspiring design touches, with Philip stark chairs in the dining room and a great mix of lovely antique furniture and modern style.

We are delighted to welcome a well behaved dog to Gatekeepers Cottage * Arthur's Seat: £30 per booking.

The apartment can accommodate 5 people, however 1 of these guests will make use of the sofa bed.
