Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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, thought has gone into its design. 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. Certainly a room to spend time in, relaxing after a day’s sightseeing or shopping! 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.
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.
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.

The Lothians region
Scotland has so much to offer, from culture, history to the friendly people, it makes for a great holiday destination.
Edinburgh is a wonderful city to visit. It is truly beautiful and as Scotland's capital, there are lots to see and do. In August 2009, Edinburgh topped a poll of 'British Cities to see before you die' confirming its status as the ultimate British tourist destination.
Located in the attractive south-side of Edinburgh, the location offers excellent local amenities, whilst only being a short bus ride or within reasonable walking distance of many of Edinburgh's main tourist attractions and city centre.
