27 Carlton Terrace Mews
Calton Hill which looks over Edinburgh at the East end of Princes Street was developed in the 1830's to plans by William Playfair. He designed some of Edinburgh's grandest houses along its three terraces, and in between provided mews for them where grooms had their quarters, stables and carriage garages.
Carlton Terrace Mews is now residential with charming cottages on four sides and cobbled paving and a communal garden of grass and shrubs in the middle. It seems so quiet and secluded it's hard to believe you are not in a country village.
Right and below right; Number 27 and its setting in the mews.
(There's free parking in the garage.)
Julie Ives' cottage is number 27, facing south, and is available as rental accommodation for visitors to Edinburgh on a self-catering basis, sleeping four. Julie lives just around the corner in Regent Terrace so can be on hand if needed and is also happy to give general advice and help.
This is a secluded place ideal for families and a great base for exploring Edinburgh. If you are feeling really energetic you can run down into Holyrood Park, past the Palace and Scottish Parliament and up Salisbury Craggs and on to Arthur's Seat - a capital city wilderness experience.
Or you can walk among the Georgian monuments on Calton Hill, or stroll directly down to Princes Street in less than 10 minutes.
