Details about this home
Concierge at Dickins
We want to make sure that you have the best possible stay in your Dickins home from home, so we've hand picked great people and local businesses to help you do just that.
The owners of this home prefers shorts lets of a month or longer. Very short bookings of less then a week can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance or further in advance where they are filling a gap between existing bookings. We do have other one bedroom homes where bookings of less then a week are always possible. Please contact us and we'll let you know which are the most suitable.
This is a dog friendly home. Dogs are welcome with owners who are going to be taking their dogs with them when they go out but we're afraid we can't accept dogs who are going to be regularly left at home whilst the owners, for example go to work, as our experience is that damage is caused in this scenario. An additional £20/week charge is made for each dog and a larger damage deposit will be taken to cover any breakages/damages or extra cleaning which is required.
Dogs are welcome in this home, so if you are an allergy sufferer it may be wise to ask if there have been any staying here recently.
If you would like to use the cot and high chair during your stay, please let us know at the time of booking. Linen will not be available for the cot, so please bring your own.
24 hour cool-off period: Providing you book more than fourteen days before the start of your stay, you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of making it and we will refund 100% of any charges.
Cancelling after the booking is confirmed: Once a confirmation of booking has been issued to you via email by Dickins, you are responsible for the total price detailed. If you need to cancel, Dickins will try to relet the period for you and if they are successful, you will be reimbursed with the value of the relet less a £75 + VAT charge. If they are not able to relet the period, you will be responsible for the full rental cost. It may be a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance which covers cancellation.

Stockbridge is one of Edinburgh’s most popular and charming local areas. In the East it runs from St Stephen Street to Dean Park Mews in the West and from Stockbridge Colonies in the North to India Place in the South.
The area is one of Edinburgh’s greenest. The Water of Leith flows through Stockbridge, in fact the area is named after the bridge which crosses it and there are very pretty walks along it. It’s so quiet and rural, that it is hard to believe you are in the middle of the city. St Bernard’s Well is a little Greek style temple overlooking the water. The world class Royal Botanic Gardens and Inverleith Park are a few minutes walk away and are both wonderful for a wander. Inverleith Park has an excellent play park for children and The Botanics is a complete joy at any time of year. If you like running, this area is perfection. The first international rugby match between Scotland and England was played in the area on 27th March 1871. The Stockbridge Duck Race takes place here every year, for charity, when 1000 plastic ducks are released off the bridge to race down The Water of Leith.Read More
