Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

We converted this 19th Century coach house ourselves and tried to keep as much of it's quirky originality as possible - while adding some of our own. We lived in the Coach House for a few years while we extended the bungalow next door and connected the two through a communal lobby. We now live in the converted bungalow and hope you will enjoy the coach house as we did.

Ground Floor

The maple flooring throughout the Coach House was reclaimed from a school and originally came with the markings from the gymnasium it had been in.

Kitchen

The kitchen is compact but functional. It has a gas cooker with an electric oven, fridge with ice box, washing machine and microwave. When you arrive you will find a welcome basket with fresh bread, butter, jam, milk and orange juice. It is also stocked with breakfast cereals, biscuits, tea, coffee, Roibos tea, condiments, herbs and spices for cooking. As well as the cutlery and crockery you may need.

Shower Room

We made the shower as large as we could in the space and kept the original basin from the bungalow. The original window above the wc we made into a niche for a painting. To maximize the available storage space we recessed cupboards into the walls - between the timber studs. One of the cupboards has, we hope, the essentials you may have forgotten!

The living Space

On the first floor the living room has three sets of roof-lights giving it great light and views to Arthur's Seat. We kept the original door to the street but insulated it and fitted it with tiny double glazed units! It is now fixed in place.

There is a sofa and comfy chair where you can sit around the coffee table, listen to music or watch TV. The small stereo has an ipod dock, DAB radio and phono jack. The television has USB ports but I is limited in what kind of media it can play.

The 1960s Ercol drop leaf table is made of Elm and suits the room, making a good place to work as well as eat.

The Bedroom

Accessed from the living room the bedroom has a standard double bed and south facing windows. One small, fixed window we reclaimed from a tenement scullery. We made a simple wooden shutter to cover it at night. Along one wall is a continuous rail which should provide ample hanging space. There is also a hairdryer and clothes airer in the bedroom.Towels are provided on the chest of drawers and towels for the swimming pool, too. Along one wall are bookshelves with various books you are welcome to read. We made the bottom shelf deep enough to carry a make-up mirror. The Wassily chair in the corner has been in the family for thirty years and is lovely but not entirely comfortable.

The Coach House, Edinburgh, Scotland

  • 5 of 5

The owners and family were great to meet, the coach house was beautiful, the location the best! Unfortunately for my wife and myself, we didn't consider it has two floors. We are n great health but Edinburgh has A LOT of walking and the streets are old and cobbled! So the two floors were a challenge but we so recommend this place to a younger set! Al and Ali an there boy's were such a pleasure to deal with and stay with! Don't know if you have a rating system but the coach house and owners are a maximum high rating!!!!!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my stay at the coach house. It was a beautiful space, very relaxing and the owners were so accommodating to my crazy schedule. They certainly made me feel right at home... The lovely supplies provided were lovely , fruit, coffee, cereals, teas, among other things.. The coach house was so comfortable, the bed amazing... It made my stay in Edinburgh very enjoyable. I would definitely stay there again. The owners were so friendly but not intrusive... A lovely family.

Thank you for the lovely stay.
