Property info

The Dene is a very charming 18th century house that retains much of its original character and features. Enjoy an informal and relaxed atmosphere in the common room, where board games and a guitar are available... for those who dare to play it! The Dene offers a wide variety of rooms: doubles, singles, family, with private and shared two rooms are the same, and this is reflected in the price, which adapts to different budgets and requirements. Very centrally located, It only takes a ten minute walk uphill to get to the centre of Edinburgh. However, if you don't want to or can´t walk, there is a bus stop and taxi rank just around the corner, and in 10 minutes you are at Edinburgh Castle!
