This luxury self-catering gem sits amidst Edinburgh's medieval Leith Conservation Area, offering fantastic access to Scotland's historic capital.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Set in one of the Scottish capital's most historic and lively wards, this property offers guests fantastic access to the city, in combination with an almost unrivalled level of peace and quiet. Taking over three years from start to finish, the Pavilion is based on an early 18th-century pavilion garden design - hence the name. It has been constructed with the utmost care and precision by the owners, with their goal of combining the modern and the traditional being evident throughout. Each room boasts period features and elegant furniture and having been built upside down, the bedrooms are on the lower floors with the communal rooms on top, further adding to the character of the property. The floors are accessed via an impressive winding staircase, yet another feature which brings extra uniqueness to a building already brimming with personality. Sleeping a maximum of six guests, this distinctive building offers an ideal getaway for friends and family alike.
The ground floor houses a twin bedroom with two brass Victorian single beds - which has an en-suite with a walk-in shower - and an amply sized utility room with a second fridge. The main bedroom is on the first floor, containing a painted cast iron half-tester double bed, as is the master bathroom. Here, you can soak your cares away in the luxuriant cast iron tub. Perhaps the house's most charming feature is on the same floor; the alcove bedroom is the ideal snug for adults and children alike - and the perfect reading spot.
The living room sits at the top of the house, under vaulted ceilings and benefits from an abundance of natural light during the day. The open fire adds a cosy and homely air while the ornate six-seater dining table brings a touch of class to proceedings. Off the living room is the fully equipped kitchen, complete with hob and oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, coffee machine, and a toaster. Finished in 2016, the Renaissance inspired garden offers the perfect tranquil escape away from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding urban landscape.
Leith is well-known as one of the cultural hubs on what is already an incredibly rich and vibrant city. Just off The Shore, the property has fantastic access to an abundance of Michelin star restaurants, farmers markets, charming pubs, and boutique shops. The area is also replete with wonderful architecture - both old and new - making walking around Leith a delight. Should you wish to venture into Edinburgh's historic centre, you will be just a short bus journey away.
