The space

The house is tucked away on a quiet lane in Stockbridge. We have only one B&B bedroom (with two single beds in it). It's quite compact, freshly decorated and clean, and you have your own door onto a walled garden. You have a private shower room directly opposite your bedroom, and off the shower room there is a large sauna - just let us know if you'd like to use it (there's a small extra charge) and we'll sort out the rest. The room has a TV, radio and free WiFi.

Nick and Jennie are friendly hosts, local to Edinburgh and full of ideas of things to do (if that's what you want). There's a tray and fridge in your room so that you can make tea or coffee when you like, and we provide fresh milk, fruit and homemade flapjacks to start your day.

It's a great location, nice walk to the centre through the historic New Town. We're near lots of cafes, quirky shops and pubs, the botanical gardens and a riverside walk that takes you to two of the main art galleries,and the botanical gardens. If you don't fancy the 15-minute walk into town, there's a bus stop five minutes away and once on the bus you'll be right in the centre in just a few minutes. If you have a car, by the way, you can park in the garden and ignore the traffic wardens!

For those of you who are into your sports and exercise, there's a small (Victorian) swimming pool with a tiny gym round the corner and fitness classes, and British Military Fitness sessions three times a week in the local park (where you can also play tennis, cricket, football, rugby, bowling and petanque; or just feed the ducks!).

That's enough from us - here are some comments from people who've stayed here:

"breakfast was fantastic, this is such a friendly relaxed place to be"

"your home is brilliantly positioned for exploration of the city"
"we came as new friends and left as old ones. FLAPJACKS! We'll remember them forever"
"you were so helpful to us in finding those 'special' places"
"it's nice to stay in such a homely atmosphere with genuine people"
"it's over four years since my first stay and the B&B still rocks!"
"simply charming, charmingly simple - Edinburgh's best kept secret"
"thank you for the wonderful days we were spending in your beautiful, artistic and cosy home"
"what a joy to stay in your bright and positive environment"
"Oh no, we're leaving!"
"Your really cool & friendly. You've got a wicked house!"

Nick is a friendly and helpful host. Loved the way the house is tucked away in a quiet street so close to the centre of Edinburgh. It is very close to a street of op-shops and there is lots of choice for places to eat. We wish we had had more time to explore them.

Nick was a fabulous host, welcoming, helpful but not intrusive. Made our stay in Edinburgh even more enjoyable. The location was perfect, being a short (safe) walk into the city. Will stay again, thanks Nick.

We had a wonderful experience with Nick and Jenny. They were so friendly and helpful. Their property was within walking distance to Edinburgh city centre which was great! They also had off street parking which was fantastic, as parking on the street was very hard to find. We felt…

Very friendly and helpful host, lovely accommodation but neat in size so you need to be on fairly intimate terms 😊 ideally situated for central Edinburgh and Stockbridge Sunday Market.
