A unique house in a fabulous historic setting at the foot of Edinburgh Castle, this unusual wedge shaped house is built onto the wall around St Cuthbert’s church, moments walk from Princes Street gardens

A unique house in a fabulous historic setting at the foot of Edinburgh Castle, this unusual wedge shaped house is situated in the graveyard of St Cuthbert’s church, moments walk from Princes Street gardens. Formerly a school house and then the watchkeeper’s cottage, it is furnished in a dramatic, appropriately Gothic style, and only 270 yards from the West End. It is hard to imagine any more central a location. Restaurants, galleries, historic buildings and a Saturday farmer’s market are a few minutes’ walk. Shops 250 yards.

Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Living/dining room. Galley-style kitchen.

    This unique property is situated in a brilliant location close to Princes St. but still enjoys relative peace and quiet. The bedroom is on the ground floor and the entrance is off this room so a tendency to bring leaves etc in when coming and going. The property is well equipped with everything you need for the stay. I only have a couple of thoughts that would have made the stay more enjoyable :- The bed is low and mattress very firm and the pillows were not the most comfortable as they were foam. A deeper mattress or a topper and feather pillows would have improved the comfort but this is personal choice. The towels in the bathroom were ok but a larger bath towel would have added a bit more luxury. The wi fi works brilliantly and being able to park the car was a welcome bonus. The pictures don't do the property justice and it really is right beneath the castle walls. The owners have provided a really good information pack. Definitely a memorable experience and one which you will not find anywhere else

    Really loved King Stables! Best break in Edinburgh to date! Excellent location and accommodation. Will definitely be back as we had a great weekend. Food in Edinburgh was excellent. Loads to do!! To much to see for one weekend! Will always visit Edinburgh as I love this Historical City. Have been 3 times previous but first time in Kings Stables which definitely made our weekend! Quirky little cottage which is excellent. Owners are extremely nice and accommodating with any issue at any time. Great people!

    Our only complaint is that when we arrived the property was freezing cold,and also no hot water. The property has underfloor heating, and some marble flooring which meant it took twenty four hours to become comfortably warm.

    Excellent location for exploring Edinburgh. It can be a little noisy with passing traffic and pedestrians at night, but it was tolerable when you take in to account the positives that the location, cost and facilities provides.

    King Stables was in the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. I'm a non-driver so it was vital to have something centrally located, and at just a 15 minute walk from Waverley station you can't get much closer. The property is located within the grounds of St Cuthburt's church, which was great for me as I have a thing for cemeteries. The property is within walking distance of most of Edinburgh's "places to visit" and there are small supermarkets within a 5-10 minute walk. I'm already thinking about another visit to this property.

    Fantastic location. Close to all local amenities and tourist attractions, yet you still feel as though you are away from the noise and rush of the city. Beautiful surroundings, unique property with everything you really need. Warm and cosy, with great views.
