Lakeside House is a charming Georgian cottage that has been extensively refurbished and extended to create a great mix of character and modernity.
Simply furnished, this B listed house is situated in the most enviable position, a quiet "country like village" yet within the heart of Edinburgh with lovely views of Arthur seat.
Set within its own grounds, the back garden is completely secluded and enclosed. The property has unrestricted on street parking.
The entrance hall leads to the dining room and from there you can access the modern lounge and kitchen. The lounge is a new addition to the property and boasts floor to ceiling glass covering most of 2 walls. The massive glass panels open to create a fantastic interaction between the house and the garden -bringing "the outside in". The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances.
The other side of the entrance hall downstairs consists of 2 a-joining rooms. The first room is the "snug" with a day bed which converts to a double bed. This leads into the main downstairs bedroom which has a patio door opening onto the back garden. This bedroom has a double bed. There is a fantastic bathroom on the ground floor which has a great power shower and full size bath.
Upstairs there are 2 principle bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms. Both these bedrooms have double beds. The third smaller upstairs bedroom has bunkbeds.
There is a strictly non-smoking policy within the house however smokers can use the rear garden.
Duddingston Village is one of Edinburgh’s premier addresses, thanks to it’s unique combination of a genuine village atmosphere and a location ideal for access to the city centre. The picturesque surroundings of the village include delightful views across Duddingston Loch and on the opposite side, the southern flank of Arthur’s Seat. The local village pub, The Sheep Heid Inn, is Scotland’s oldest surviving public house and provides good food and a traditional skittle alley. As well as the open spaces of Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park, there are a good range of golf courses nearby including Prestonfield and Duddingston. The Cameron Toll shopping centre is just a short drive away through the park, as are the thriving areas of Newington and Bruntsfield. Excellent road connections also provide rapid links to the city bypass and A1, which in turn give good links to the motorway network and Edinburgh Airport.
Located just 10 minutes from a range of city buses, it takes just 20 minutes into the city centre. There is a Tesco Express 0.65 miles or a Morrisons Supermarket 1 mile from the property.
We reserve the right to vet any group booking. This apartment is not suitable for stag parties, hen parties or young single sex groups. One member of the booking party must be over 25yrs. Strictly non smoking.

Very good value!
The house itself was set in a lovely location. Decor of the house was very modern. Spacious for 7-8 people to sleep comfortably. The kitchen had all the facilities you'd need and there were dishwasher tablets in order for us to use the dishwasher.
The bathroom was of an ample size.
The service from The Edinburgh Address was brilliant.

An extremely, clean, inviting and spacious house.
Lovely open plan style and the corner patio doors opening onto the garden give an enhanced feeling of space.
All our dealings with the office staff at The Edinburgh Address have been friendly and efficient. Erin has been particularly helpful - thank you.

Very good value. A beautiful house which is extremely well- appointed. The conversion has been really well done without losing the character of the house. It was very comfortable, light and bright and was ideal for us as our daughter was getting married at the Kirk opposite. The service provided [from The Edinburgh Address] was excellent - friendly and helpful throughout. The first positive point was that you kept your promise to notify us when rental dates on the property we wanted were released, and every query we had was answered promptly.

The accommodation was perfect for our family, there were 9 adults and an 18 month old and we stayed for a week. We had more than enough room, with the bedrooms upstairs having en suites it didn't feel like everybody was on top of each other. The closed off garden is a perfect place for children to play and more than big enough for the family to have a very enjoyable BBQ. The house is in a beautiful area and provides a really enjoyable walk through Holyrood Park to the Royal Mile (approx 20mins). The pub around the corner from the property has a fabulous restaurant with a lovely bit of history attached to it (being the first ever public house opened in Scotland). We had a fantastic holiday and are already looking at booking again. The property is beautiful and in a fantastic location. Has everything you could think a real home from home. I have had a fantastic service from The Edinburgh Address from start to finish. A lot of it was done via email as the holiday was booked as a surprise but any questions were answered promptly and Erin was very helpful throughout. I did inquire if the property had a BBQ but I was told unfortunately not. However to my surprise on our arrival sure enough there was a little BBQ in the back garden, either way thank you. And thank you for a wonderful holiday.

"The house is stunning. There were 8 of us in total as part of a wedding party and there was plenty of space for 4 adults and 4 children. The house is very well equipped, with sufficient crockery & cutlery etc for a large number of guests. The large dining area and equally large living room made it very relaxed. Property was clean, beds were comfy with plenty of linen and towels provided. Free unlimited on-street parking directly outside. Also, the use of free wi-fi was great as we had taken a laptop and could check the weather, things to do, plan routes etc. The house is in a great location and climbing Arthurs Seat proved a good way of allowing the children to let off steam. The house is a gentle 30-minute walk into Edinburgh. Would definitely stay here again if we were travelling in a large party - highly recommended for 2 families.
Nice easy access to the property by means of the keysafe - great idea when you're not sure what time you will arrive."
