Bell's Brae House is beyond description - you simply have to see it for yourself! Our stay was wonderful and the memory of this lovely place will be with us always. Stephanie was so gracious and attentive and made us feel so welcome. The room/house...More

Thank you so much Karleen and Ben! So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Stephanie
Just minutes outside of central Edinburgh, Bell's Brae House sits in an oasis of historic calm beside the Water of Leith. Easy access to Princes St. up a little cobbled street and down Queensferry Rd. Stephanie & Stewart have a little gem of a place...More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Steph and I are looking forward to seeing you again in August.
It's hard to believe this is as close to the centre of Edinburgh as it is, with a bubbling Water of Leith taking the place of noisy traffic.
This is a one room b&b in a very old building, overlooking the water. The room was...More

Thank you so much for your kind remarks. Come and stay again soon.

Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
