Lovely quiet little house on slopes of Arthur's Seat. Pretty garden. Free street parking. Bedroom has twin beds, breakfast included. Good bus to town, and help and information about getting around from host. Almost in Duddingston Village.
I love living here and hope you will enjoy it too. It really is remarkable to be in a house where you can see no other house from the front, and distant hills from the back and yet it is really near the middle of Edinburgh. The bedroom is a good size and very sunny, with very comfortable twin beds which can convert to an equally comfy superking double if you are staying for more than two nights, but you have to let me know if you want this, otherwise the default is a twin. There is tea and coffee making, and a snugly robe so that you can decently nip across the landing to the bathroom! Breakfast is in my living room with tea or coffee, muesli, home made yoghurt, bread and jam. The table overlooks the garden and the sun shines in on your breakfast table (ok, it is Scotland, I can't guarantee the sun!) I share my house with a friendly dog, who welcomes guests with a ball or toy and a lick! Small children are most welcome, but I don't have a cot, as most people seem to have a travel cot. One older child or another adult can go in another room, only let as rooms together because of bathroom space. You have to pay for this room when you get here as I can't find a way to let it only as one booking on airbnb, so message me about it. It is £10 less that the main room.

The bathroom is shared with me, and I hope that you will join me in the living room, but I like to keep the kitchen mine (which means no cooking!). You are also welcome to use the garden. Breakfast is served in my living room overlooking the garden.

I ran a B&B elsewhere for 29 years, so I am well used to guests! I have books and maps of Edinburgh, and can help you find your way around. If you need me or want a chat I am around, and would enjoy your company, but I am also aware that you may just want to be in your room and ignore me and thats fine too. During the festival I try and keep up to date with what is on in the fringe, although as there are over 2000 shows I can't do more than scrape the surface.

The house is a little off the road, so you have to walk up a short path or up some steps to find it. Also if you want to walk up on Arthur's Seat it might be a good idea to bring suitable footwear, grass can be very wet!
It is my home, so I would ask you to respect that, you are always welcome to join me in the sitting room, but I like to keep the kitchen mine - this means no cooking.
No pets as I have my own (very friendly) dog.
Please keep quiet outside (as well as inside) if you are coming home after about 10, it is such a quiet spot that the neighbours get woken by the slightest noise! This is not a curfew as some think, it is just a polite request...come in whenever you like!
PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU WILL BE ARRIVING! This is so that I can plan my day so as to be in when you arrive.
I grew up in Edinburgh, but moved away to London and then Wales, where I ran a popular B&B for twenty eight years. I enjoy visitors and found that I missed them, so I am starting again! My dog Bramble was brought up in a B&B, so loves greeting guests. I love being in a city again, and sing in a fantastic community choir, enjoy going to the cinema, theatre, eating out and exploring the countryside. It is amazing having Arthur's Seat outside my door, and I go out early every morning and love the views of the Pentland Hills and the sea.
