We were staying at Bell's Brae for 6 nights and were really excited about the stay. And for once the level of expectation was met with an outstanding experience. Stewart and Stephanie are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They live in a magnificent old mill on the Waters of Leith and it was an absolute treat...

You really are far too kind with your comments but Steph and I really appreciate them. We really enjoyed having you stay with us so please come again and we will try and do a better job with the weather next time. Very best regards, Stewart

2nd visit to Belles Brae and once again cannot be faulted. From arrival where we were recognised as returning guests (didn't expect this as it was over a year since our first visit) to departure when we were offered the opportunity to extend the checkout time as our hosts recognised my husband's post accident disability, we felt at home and...

Splendid accomodation with view on the river Leith and Dean Village, close to nature and a only a ten minute walk from Stockbridge, with its nice charity shops. Not far from Edinburgh s Old & New town as well. The very personal approach from the B&B owners makes you feel very much at home and I particuarly very much enjoyed...

Our time in Edinburgh was greatly enhanced by staying at this gem of a B&B. Such a treat to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas by staying at this oasis of calm. Stephanie and Stewart are the perfect hosts, friendly and great conversationalists if you want a nice chat. And they make a mean breakfast! In...

I'm almost afraid to write this review for fear of not being able to have availability in the future. In a nutshell - probably the finest B&B we've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The hosts, Stewart and Stephanie, are in a class by themselves. For example, on the morning of my wife's birthday, they had "Happy Birthday" piped into...

We loved this place. Stephanie and Stewart were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The building is wonderfully historic with a worn stone circular staircase. We loved the breakfast room and were delighted to learn that it had been designed by Basil Spence, the architect of Coventry Cathedral! Breakfast was excellent. We would strongly recommend this to the discerning traveller. We have...

When I travel to a large city, I like to stay slightly off the main drag, so I can recuperate from a long day of sightseeing and crowds. Bell's Brae House is this, but it's only a 10 minute walk to the heart of New Town. There's also a bus stop nearby that drops you off directly from Waverly Train...

My husband and I stayed for three nights in July of 2016 in this B&B. It is in a charming setting overlooking a stream. Stewart makes fabulous breakfasts, and is friendly and helpful. The B&B is within walking distance to many of Edinburgh's famous attractions. Stewart and Stephanie were very accommodating during our visit, even letting us leave our luggage...

Situated on the banks of a stream this guest house provides a romantic experience for anyone wanting to spend a few days in Edinburgh. The only room is spacious with a large double bed (very comfortable) and a balcony overlooking the stream. The room is accessed via your own front door and up a stone spiral staircase which really identifies...

We usually like to stay bang and central, so I was a little nervous when our taxi from Waverley train station seemed to take us a little way out. Do Not Be! Literally 10 minutes stroll from Edinburgh Castle and all of Princess St, this is a fabulous B and B and a privilege to stay at. Lovely big room...

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
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.
