At Dickins we are devoted festophiles who absolutely love the Edinburgh Festivals – after all it’s where the business started back in 1998. Edinburgh Fringe festival accommodation is at the heart and soul of our business. We’ve been providing the best festival accommodation Edinburgh has to offer to performers and people working at the Festival as well as audience members for over 20 years now, so we know what matters to you. We also understand all the pressures that comes with performing in Edinburgh for a month. You can rely on us to deliver homes which are immaculately clean and look just like they do in our photos. We’re known and trusted and have always been interested in building long term relationships. If there’s a maintenance issue during your stay (and unfortunately things do go wrong sometimes) then we’ll find a quick and efficient solution. We’re great problem solvers. Stay in a home with Dickins for 4 weeks or longer and you’ll benefit from a 20% discount too – you won’t find that at Airbnb!!


We look after great a range of quality Edinburgh Fringe accommodation from studios to luxury Georgian townhouses, all fully equipped for self catering stays. All our homes – whether high-end luxury or homely and comfortable – are well-presented, clean and carefully maintained. They can be rented by the week or for the whole run, and are in great locations all over central Edinburgh; with many in an unbeatable central location close to the royal mile, princes street and throughout the Edinburgh city center. Guests who book with Dickins for 28 days or longer also benefit from a 20% discount making staying with Dickins that much more rewarding for those seeking full festival accommodation in Edinburgh.


Back in 1998 well before the days of websites, when Fringe tickets costs about £5 and you could park anywhere all summer without getting a parking ticket, Louise Dickins started matching festival goers to Edinburgh homes. She set about contacting major venues including Assembly, The Edinburgh International Festival and Gilded Balloon. As the years have gone by our clients and the number of properties we look after has grown and we’re proud that we still look after those same clients from 1998.

Dickins have a fantastic range of apartments and houses in great city centre locations and have provided us with many wonderful apartments year after year.

Performing in the Edinburgh Festival can be stressful. Dickins have been doing this for a long time so we understand the pressures of the Fringe and how to take care of high profile guests during the festival fringe period. If a problem arises before or during your stay, we’ll be on the case to resolve it quickly and if that’s not possible, then we’ll move you to another home. We pride ourselves on being great problems solvers. Working with an established professional agency with great contractors at their fingertips instead of a private individual gives peace of mind – and that peace of mind won’t cost you more either.

We’ve been using Dickins to find Festival accommodation for years. They always find us great apartments but the thing I really value is that when a problem crops up, they are straight onto getting it sorted. That gives me peace of mind.
