Key features

Lochside House is a charming Georgian cottage that has been extensively refurbished and extended to create a great mix of character and modernity.

Simply furnished, this B listed house is situated in the most enviable position, a quiet "country like village" yet within the heart of Edinburgh with lovely views of Arthur seat. Set within its own grounds, the back garden is completely secluded and enclosed. The property has unrestricted on street parking.

The entrance hall leads to the dining room and from there you can access the modern lounge and kitchen. The lounge is a new addition to the property and boasts floor to ceiling glass covering most of 2 walls. The massive glass panels open to create a fantastic interaction between the house and the garden -bringing "the outside in". The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances, including an American style fridge/freezer.

The other side of the entrance hall downstairs consists of two adjoining double bedrooms. The main downstairs bedroom has a patio door opening onto the back garden. There is a fantastic bathroom on the ground floor which has a great power shower over a full size bath.

Upstairs there are 2 principle bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms. Both these bedrooms have double beds. The third smaller upstairs bedroom has bunk beds.

    Local area Duddingston Village is one of Edinburgh’s premier addresses, thanks to its unique combination of a genuine village atmosphere and a location ideal for access to the city centre. The picturesque surroundings of the village include delightful views across Duddingston Loch and on the opposite side, the southern flank of Arthur’s Seat. As well as the open spaces of Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park, there are a good range of golf courses nearby including Prestonfield and Duddingston.

    The Cameron Toll shopping centre is just a short drive away through the park, as are the thriving areas of Newington and Bruntsfield, both of which offer a great array of cafes, restaurants and shops of all kinds. And for the evening meal and drinks, or afternoon lunch, the local village pub, The Sheep Heid Inn, is Scotland’s oldest surviving public house and provides good food and a traditional skittle alley.

    Durante il nostro soggiorno in casa è caduto uno specchio, con il pericolo di ferire i bambini. Per fortuna eravamo fuori casa e nessuno si è ferito.

    Prezzo non molto vantaggioso

    Our response

    Grazie per aver dedicato del tempo a lasciare un feedback. Grazie per averci avvertito durante il tuo soggiorno della caduta dello specchio - a volte queste cose possono accadere e siamo contenti che nessuno sia rimasto ferito. Siamo spiacenti che ritieni che questa proprietà non abbia un buon prezzo - tieni presente che ha un prezzo competitivo rispetto ad altre proprietà comparabili in città. Ci auguriamo, nonostante questo, che ti sia piaciuto il tuo soggiorno a Edimburgo.

    I liked the house and location very much and would definitely stay there again. However beds were very uncomfortable except two of them. No welcome pack, not even a little tea and coffee. Very disappointing regarding cleanliness, lots of cobwebs, dirty floors etc. the big blue commercial bin was overflowing we had to physically get in it to sort it to dispose of our rubbish as squirrels, jackdaws etc were having a lovely time!
    There is broken dangerous decking outside, rotten so be very careful out in the back garden.
    We started giving it a good clean but no hoover, or even dustpan and brush, so gave up after going over the kitchen and bathrooms. Luckily my cousins brought food over for us.
    There was a pot that had had scrambled eggs cooked in it, not properly cleaned, however to be fair there were no cleaning things left for anyone to clean with so.... Summary, great house, great location, nice family area, but take everything and be prepared to give it a good clean yourself.

    Fair price for what it was, expensive few days, but overall if house is shared it's ok.

    Our response

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are glad that you had a good stay and enjoyed the lovely location of the property! Thank you for bringing these areas of concern to our attention. We have not had reports of other guests finding the beds uncomfortable and are sorry to hear that this impacted your stay. Please note that, for hygiene reasons, welcome packs are not currently being provided and we invite guests to purchase their own supplies for their stay. Thank you for informing us about the bin issues - we have recently begun working with a private company for bin collection and will get in touch with them to ask them to improve their service. Thank you too for bringing the decking to our attention - we are currently arranging for a tradesman to fix this, however this is being delayed due to Covid and limited availability. We do ask all our guests to leave properties in the state they find them in order to help the next guests, and we can only apologise that previous guests had not done this for you. We hope you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh and hope to welcome you back again soon
