The Family Retreat @ Arthur's Seat

A gorgeous detached cottage; forming part of the exclusive Blacket Estate in Newington.

Offering guests a great opportunity to stay in their own cottage with private back terrace, yet still be close to the city centre (walkable or only 10 minutes by bus or taxi).

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. There is a futon in the living room, which can sleep one extra guest.

Additional Location Information

The house also has a fascinating history. This detached cottage was one of four lodge cottages of the Blacket Estate. The Estate was an exclusive residential development built in the 1830s. At each of its four entrances there was a lodge occupied by a gatekeeper whose job it was to open and close the gates into the Blacket Estate. This continued until 1903 when, with the arrival of motor cars, the occupants of the lodges no longer had the obligation to open and close the gates. The gates were removed during the Second World War.
