About Arthur's Seat B & B

Arthur's Seat is situated in a tranquil, tree-lined suburban street. It is a mid-19th century character home furnished with many lovely antiques and is within walking distance of private schools (15 mins.) and the city centre (10 mins.). The rear garden has a charming outside patio under vine where breakfast is served on fine days and where guests may enjoy the colourful garden. A full English breakfast is the order of the day and included are freshly baked bran muffins or scones; home made jams and preserves from our own fruit trees as well as stewed fruit or fruit salad. And then, of course, our sparkling company!

Situated in the rear garden, with its own private entrance and en suite bathroom with shower, is a large bedroom containing twin beds with very comfortable mattresses and fine linen, an antique dressing table and wardrobe. There is a charming seating area and lovely fresh flowers compliment this most comfortable accommodation.

Upstairs in the main house are two bedrooms, the one has twin beds - the other a wonderfully comfortable double bed. Both have oriental carpets, interesting antiques and fine linen. The one looks out onto the lovely oaks of Henry Street - the other faces east and gets the early morning sun .... for those who like to rise with the birds! These two rooms share an adjacent bathroom and the dulcet snores emanating from the owners' bedroom!

Arthur's Seat has a friendly old-world charm - like the owners.
