Portobello is a charming and distinctive part of Edinburgh with a busy, traditional high street offering fishmongers, delicatessen, fine wine shop, award winning butcher plus various restaurants and takeaways - everything you need for a self-catering holiday! There is a wide variety of interesting architecture within the conservation area and a stroll through the local streets never fails to reveal something of interest.

The sandy beach, which is approximately 2 minutes walk from the house, boasts beautiful coastal views, good pub/restaurants and cafes, boats and canoes for hire, restored Victorian swimming pool with Turkish baths and gym, soft play area, outdoor playgrounds plus additional seasonal art installations and attractions. Portobello is very well connected to Edinburgh city centre with several regular bus routes operating day and night on the 3 mile journey between the two locations and a taxi ride is typically less than £10.

This traditional seaside resort, with a vibrant community spirit, is a fantastic location offering peace and calm from which to explore the city of Edinburgh as well as the surrounding countryside and attractions.

"Great location for a lovely cottage"

Stayed for a long weekend whilst visiting family. Excellent communication from Jennie. Really appreciated wine, biscuits and coffee. We found the cottage to be very well equipped and clean. Children loved the garden. Short distance to beach, restaurants and shopping.

"Lovely house. Home from home!"

We stayed here for a total of 5 nights, 4 adults and 2 under 2's. It was a beautiful house with good quality furnishings. The place was spotless! It definitely felt like home from home and I was … More

Hi, thanks so much for your feedback. I am so sorry to hear you had problems with the directions. There is in fact only one bypass but it does travel in two directions so i can only assume you ended up going in the wrong direction! In any event I have amended my directions so (hopefully!)subsequent guests don't have the same problem! As for the other issues, i will look to have these rectified ASAP. Thanks again for taking the time to provide the feedback - it is greatly appreciated! Jennie

"Could not have picked a nicer place to stay"

The cottage is beautifully presented and is located perfectly for visiting the cities attractions with the added bonus of the beach with 2 mins walk. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who likes to be close to all amenities but prefers the peace and quiet to relax at the end of the day.

"Great place, good price, defintely worth it!"

The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated. My family and I felt like home. The shower was amazing. Its location is good, i.e. 2mins walk from the beach and 20mins bus from Edinburgh city centre.
It would be a perfect place to stay if there is wifi in the house.
I highly recommend this place. My family and I would love to re-visit in the future!

"Portobello Much Room"

Our party of six - two couples and 2 under 4s - enjoyed every minute of our 3 night stay at the Cottage, which accomodated us perfectly. Ample garden space to relax in the sunshine (front and back) as well as large open kitchen/dining and living room, allowing plenty of space for everyone to feel relaxed. Without exaggeration, the cottage is a 2 minute walk down to a beautiful, clean beach and minutes away from local convenience store for all your daily needs. The owner could not have been more accomodating, making herself available for all queries and thoughtfully leaving some helpful items for free use. Highly recommended.

"great cottage and location"

fantastic cottage we stayed for two nights with four young children . ideal back garden completely fenced in and secure. just a two minute walk to a fabulous beach. Jennie was very helpful with things. would definitely go back preferably for longer.

Thanks so much for comments, Liz, I am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your break in Portobello Cottage and I look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

"Portobello Cottage"

Very comfortable cottage/town house with beautiful original features but with modern facilities. Excellent location for exploring Edinburgh. Lovely welcome with tea and biscuits. As a family with small children we appreciated small additional touches such as providing children's potty and we enjoyed using the garden barbecue also. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others. In other worlds, if you want to come to Edinburgh then you will be lucky if you stay in this cottage ^_^

Thanks so much, Fourat, for your kind comments. I endeavour to provide a 'home away form Home' for my guests and am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I would also like to thank you for looking after the property and leaving it in such great condition when you left. You are welcome back any time! Jennie
