Late Availability Edinburgh Short Breaks

Last-minute short breaks in Edinburgh

Short breaks are popular at Craigwell Cottage – either for the weekend, or mid-week stays.  As we’re so close to Edinburgh’s main attractions, most of what you want to see is only a short walk away.

Craigwell Cottage is situated only one block from Edinburgh’s Canongate, part of the historic street known as the Royal Mile.  You can park your car in the parking spot in our courtyard and walk around the city centre – most of which is within only one mile of the cottage.  We’re very close to Edinburgh’s main railway station, Waverley.

To find out when we’re next available, simply put your arrival date into our “Book Now” box and find a quote for your stay.

Ideas for things to do on a short break in Edinburgh

With the Royal Mile so close at hand, you can be at the Palace of Holyroodhouse or the Scottish Parliament within minutes, and a half hour walk will take you to Edinburgh Castle.  Of course, you won’t walk the Royal Mile in half an hour as you’ll find so many things to divert you on the way.  Some of our favourite city-centre attractions and diversions are:

The Queen's Gallery at Palace of Holyroodhouse
