Listen to 80s vinyl and sink into the velvet chair in this listed stone building nestled amongst cobbled streets. Make plans for the day around the reclaimed wooden table, relax with the retro games station, then climb into the teak handcarved bed.
“Throw on some vinyl on the record player and enjoy a glass of wine in the window seat”

Here’s a little about us and why we’re different. Sonia is a creative enthusiast, dreamer of bold ideas and laughing at her own jokes which usually involve dogs.Chris is the Scottish rogue whiskey drinker turned professional problem solver who loves to tell a good story usually whilst going for a casual 26 mile run. Together we have covered some ground over the years, working and living everywhere from Tanzania, Cairo, Paris before swapping the vibrant streets of London to settle in wild Scotland.   Our core belief is that there are lots of people, like us, who love to travel and want an authentic local experience away from the tourist herds. Supporting local independent restaurants with local sustainable produce.  It’s human nature to want to get off the beaten path and make your experience unique as every individual has different needs. If you’re travelling with the family and can’t figure out what to do to keep everyone happy – we have a trick or two up our sleeve. If you’ve taken some last minute time off work and are panicking on where to go – don’t. We’re here to help. While Edinburgh is relatively small there are new events, bars and restaurants popping up every week and we know the ins and outs of Edinburgh and are able to bring an insight and level of service that few can match. We have created our own ‘Insiders Guide’ digital app for all our guests that you can download to your phone in any language. Everything from the strongest caffeine hit to the place for seafood or where to get a drink away from the bagpipes and tourist hordes. (Unless you want bagpipes in which case we can point you in the right direction)  We pride ourselves in going a step further than the rest to make sure your trip is memorable for all the right reasons. The booking process should be the start of a fantastic holiday, not the reason you’re going to need one, so we are delighted to offer a host of little extras to make a trip with us more personalised at not like staying in a hotel. Trust us. Take peek at our reviews, they speak for themselves. We have hosted over 1,000 people from all over the world and nothing makes us happier than guests planning there next trip to our beautiful corner of Scotland. Do you have Questions? Just send us a message :) Sonia & Chris x
