Full description

A captivatingly historic, 16th century tower-retreat, filled with rustic delights and peacefully nestled in a private garden close to Edinburgh.

Featuring a bedroom equipped with illuminated ancient pigeon nesting-boxes, and a garden wall festooned with antiques, Dovecot Cottage is a true one-of-a-kind retreat for four lucky guests.

An exquisite conversion of a 16th century dovecot, you'll discover plenty of modern creature comforts amongst the stone walls and historic charm. 

Heated floors and a cosy wood-burner will keep everybody perfectly toasty, while the bespoke-designed kitchen features a convection oven and a TV (as well as counter-tops cleverly crafted from trees that once grew in the surrounding mature gardens).  Meanwhile, the bathroom is home to a luxurious rainfall shower, and a heated towel rail.

However, if you want to experience a real slice of tranquil 16th century life, all you need to do is head out to your private stone terrace.  Peppered with scented plants and gently whispering trees, it's the perfect spot for daydreamers.
