Big Cottages In Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city made for exploring, peeling back the layers of history, discovering tucked away gastronomic delights, stumbling across some amazing culture and, if it’s festival season, having a great laugh. It’s a friendly city, and one of the cultural hotspots in the UK. Holiday cottages in Edinburgh are a great way to experience this world-class city, whether you’re looking for a cosy couple’s hideaway or something spacious and conveniently located for the festival’s main shows.

Visit Edinburgh and you’ll discover a city where the streets are brimming with great shops, museums and historic landmarks, as well as top quality bars and restaurants. Travel to Edinburgh during Edinburgh Fringe and you can dial everything up a few notches, as the city comes alive with music, drama and, of course, comedy. If you’re looking for self-catering accommodation that has bags of character, then you’ll find lots of Edinburgh cottages to choose from all year round.

What’s so great about a holiday cottage in Edinburgh?

Whenever you decide to visit Edinburgh, there’s bound to be something amazing going on. With 12 festivals happening throughout the year – from the International Film Festival in June to the Fringe in August – Scotland’s capital is awash with culture and is an absolute must visit. Even before Edinburgh became the world’s best city for festivals, it had an important place in history, as you’ll find out when you tour landmarks such as Holyrood royal Palace, which was built in the 16th century.

Edinburgh is also an important literary destination, home of some famous authors such as Robert Louis Stephenson, and an inspiration to a certain Ms. Rowling. The city itself has a fantastical quality, especially as it is overlooked by the majestic extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, which is great for a spot of hiking and delivers some of the best views of the city and surrounding countryside.

Cottages holidays are a great way to experience this amazing city. If you’re planning a holiday in Edinburgh then make it a home from home trip with some of the best Edinburgh cottages, and explore a city that just keeps on giving, whether you’re a fan of culture, history or just having a bonnie old time!

Our guide UK pilgrimage routes you can walk on your next holiday includes a walking route that passes through Edinburgh.
