Key features

Lakeside 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.

The other side of the entrance hall downstairs consists of 2 a-joining 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 and 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.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of £30 for unsociable hours, arrivals after 10 pm will incur a fee of £50 and arrivals after midnight, a fee of £60. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

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.

They were courteous and clear in their booking service, which resolved the cancellation problem I faced when the initial firm went into liquidation.


The house was perfect for location, and for our size of party.

However, we felt some areas of the house needed a more thorough cleaning - sticky kitchen doors, the dining table, dirty marks on the sofas and lots of cobwebs at ceiling height.

Everything was straight forward from start to finish. We would definitely consider using Reserve Apartments again.


We were having a surprise family get together.The house and gardens were excellent, spacious and very well equipped.The location was fabulous and within a short taxi or bus journey into the city. I can highly recommend this property. If in the city I would use it again.
