Carlton Terrace Mews
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This well appointed, south facing cottage is situated in an attractive mews quadrangle and overlooks a peaceful communal garden which provides a tranquil oasis in the heart of the Georgian New Town. Within a few minutes walk of the hustle and bustle of Princes Street and the rest of the historic city, it is ideally placed to offer visitors the opportunity to relax in comfort when not visiting the city's many tourist and cultural attractions. The cottage sleeps 4 with an additional cot available. The living/dining area and kitchen are up upstairs. Wi-fi and secure parking are included.
Originally built in the 1830s, these cottages housed horses and carriages on the lower floor with living quarters for the coachmen upstairs. The charm and character remain, but fortunately the accommodation you will enjoy is considerably more luxurious.

The Lothians region
Edinburgh is situated on the East Coast of Scotland and is the capital city. To the west is West Lothian where you can visit stunning castles, the prehistoric burial site at Cairnpapple Hill and Linlithgow Palace, where Mary Queen of Scots was born. Get active and enjoy the beautiful rolling countryside with long scenic walks or spend a day in one of the extensive country parks such as Beecraigs near Linlithgow. Just south of Edinburgh, Midlothian is best known as the home of beautiful Rosslyn Chapel, featured in the film 'The Da Vinci Code'. It also boasts river valleys, woods and hills making it ideal for some more adventurous activities. East Lothian is ideal for touring with its beautiful towns, wonderful beaches and fantastic attractions to explore. There are also many outdoor activities to enjoy such as golf, walking, cycling (including fatbiking along the coastline) and even kite surfing.
With over 4,500 listed buildings, Edinburgh is world-renowned for its rich architectural heritage. The two main areas of historical interest are the Old Town and the New Town. The Old Town features the tourist hub of the Royal Mile, running from Edinburgh Castle on the west to The Palace of Holyrood House, the Queen's Edinburgh residence in the east. In the 18th century New Town you will find the grand Georgian Terraces, more suited to the figures of the Scottish Enlightenment who wished to escape the over-crowded Old Town. Together, the Old and New Towns were listed as a World Heritage Site in 1995.
There are plenty of opportunities for relaxing and retail therapy in Edinburgh. Princes Street with its many high street shops as well as George Street with its luxury fashion boutiques, jewellers and trendy bars and restaurants will cater for most needs. Slightly further afield is Leith, a veritable hub for lively eating and drinking as well as being home to The Royal Yacht Britannia. The various Edinburgh International Festivals takes place in July/August. Edinburgh is also famous for its New Years Eve Hogmanay Street Party.

"A hidden Gem"
We stayed at the cottage during the commonwealth games. The walk to the station took about 15 mins. It's a great spot for enjoying Edinburgh. My husband bought his bike and rode round Arthur… More

"Good location but needs more TLC"
The Carlton Mews is a great location for holidaying in Edinburgh. It's close to the main tourist attractions yet quiet enough so you get a good nights sleep. However, this not 5 star accomodati… More
Thank you for your comments. The garage is currently comfortably housing an Audi A4, the pillows you used were brand new and the toilet was fully functional for the duration of your stay. I agree that the paint work and carpets are a little tired and we plan a major refurbishment later in the year. However, I would point out that we aim to offer great value for money. The accommodation sleeps 4, less than £25/person/night at your rate, in a prime location in a capital city in peak season. The local three star hotel charges £259 for a standard double room, with no parking at all on a busy main road. Clearly there is a choice to be made here and we would argue that you had exceptionnel value for money for accommodation in a unique, peaceful and central setting, without the 'frills' of an 'upmarket' hotel chain.

"Convenient location but needs some TLC"
We enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh very much, but there are a few things that would very much improve the Mews. There was no heating on when we arrived and the property was very cold and smelt very must… More
I regret that you had problems whilst staying in my accommodation. Had you informed me of these at the time I would have been able to rectify many of them, others may be personal preference- the previous reviewer commented on how comfortable the beds were. However, I am very keen that guests are made as comfortable as possible and I make every effort to ensure that any problems are dealt with efficiently. The Mews now has a new flat screen TV and new pillows. The wi-fi is functioning and we are seeking period replacement doors.

"Very Pleasant Accommodation."
We really enjoyed our stay at Carlton Terrace Mews. The cottage was quiet and clean and conveniently near the very centre of Edinburgh. The beds and bed linen were exceptionally comfortable! We would certainly recommend this holiday rental to friends and family.

"A perfect place for a city stay"
Very convenient apartment : well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated. Good location with shopping facilities around.
Just one thing to improve : recheck address for key pickup which apparently can be misinterpreted by taxi driver. We found it in the end, but did quite some driving ! (Taxi driver didn't charge us any extra)
Thank you very much for your helpful comments. We take all feedback very seriously and have already installed a keypad entry system for the cottage to avoid any further key issues.
