  The Detail...

In the heart of The Dell, close enough to hear the gentle trickle of the river, The Peaceful Cabin is a beautifully designed wooden tiny house with everything you need for an Edinburgh sojourn. Private and tranquil yet accessible and well-connected, The Peaceful Cabin is a dreamy getaway for a single traveller or couple, boasting a hot tub, wood burning stove, and sky-bed on the mezzanine.

The Peaceful Cabin is set on a quiet lane, with no through traffic, in its own small gardens. Youre right by the river, and close to the popular Robert Louis Stephenson trail, making this an ideal spot for cyclists, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Wildlife ranging from deer and otters to kingfishers roam nearby, so youre likely to spot unusual and beautiful fauna as you sit outside, enjoying the Edinburgh light after a long day of exploring.

The house itself is timber framed and clad, built to a pleasing Scandinavian style, and offering all the amenities youd expect from a self-catering cottage. The cabin is arranged on one level, with a ladder-accessed sleeping mezzanine overhead. As well as the wood burning stove, there is full heating, a well-equipped kitchen, and a plumbed in shower room and lavatory. Youll largely have the outdoors space to yourself, so feel free to roam around, or relax close to home base on the timber decking. Guests looking to unplug from the perpetual bombardment of modern life will be pleased to find that there is no television, although the cabin does have WiFi.

Everything about this charming and quaint getaway in the green, unspoiled landscape of The Dell subtly suggests relaxation and true peace. Accessed via a gently curing flagstone path and built with substantial windows to create a light and airy atmosphere, The Peaceful Cabin is the sort of self-catering cottage which remains with you long after youve moved on. Be as active as you like, heading to the mountains, the coast, or the heart of one of Europes most exciting cities, or spend your days finding a rhythm with nature, taking in the fresh air and strolling along the gently meandering river.

Edinburgh is a globally renowned city, famed for its festivals, culture, architecture and history. Regardless of season, it is brimming with fine dining restaurants, brilliant art and theatre, a vibrant, inclusive culture and something for everybody to dip into, regardless of age, interests or budget. Although The Peaceful Cabin is characterised by quiet, youre just fifteen minutes from Edinburgh Airport, and can reach the citys attractions easily. Without leaving the immediate neighbourhood, check out Java Moment for great coffee and cheese scones, the brilliant Olive and Post deli, and the award winning Dantes, for Italian food. Spylaw Tavern, a gorgeous cocktail bar and kitchen, is just a few minutes walk away, and the lovely Colinton Inn is also nearby.
