Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Prestonfield - Family Retreat @ Arthur's Seat

2 bedroom cottage only 20 minute walk from Royal Mile

The whole cottage has truly inspiring design touches, with Philip Stark chairs in the dining room and a great mix of lovely antique furniture and modern style.

The front door leads into an entrance hall, to the right are the two bedrooms each with a double bed and also the bathroom. Both bedrooms have their own character and design touches. The bathroom is lovely too; with sandstone coloured tiles and smart vanity units. The bath has a shower over it.

There is a very cozy and homely living room with French doors leading out to the private terrace. On a summer’s day, the terrace offers an additional space to enjoy a morning coffee or glass of wine.

There is a separate dining area with smart modern kitchen adjacent. Featuring sophisticated white units, the design combines country kitchen living with city chic.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Extremely cosy, great location and beautiful decor. It was ideal. I was hesitant about paying a fairly large deposit in advance but had no reason to worry. The staff are very efficient and helpful. I would definitely use this company again. Brilliant service and lovely place to stay.
