From the guest house in Edinburgh, it is only a fifteen minute walk to
Edinburgh Castle where there are literally hundreds of years of history to enjoy, along with stunning views over Edinburgh. The castle is at the top of one of the lovliest, and oldest, streets in the world, known as
The Royal Mile, which runs between the castle,at the top of the hill, spreading down to the
Palace of Holyrood House at the bottom. On the way down there are loads of interesting places to visit such as
St. Giles Cathedral and the dwelling place of one of it's more widely known preachers
John Knox. while just 200 yards further down the hill, away from the Sherwood,is Princes Street, home of the
Scott Monument, and one of Scotland's premier shopping streets.
The Sherwood guest house is in Edinburgh's
Newington area which boasts numerous excellent restaurants, cafes, bars, lovely walks through residential areas to holyrood park, and great
Edinburgh Accommodation. We are just 5 minutes walk to the nearest golf course, the commonwealth pool, and the Queens Hall.
The Sherwood, our lovely 4 star Edinburgh guest house, is a fully renovated Edwardian
'B' listed building. Built in 1832 it retains most of the original features and character ( but with modern heating & plumbing ) of a Georgian town house. In those days Newington was the "up and coming" suburb for the fairly "well to do" merchants in Edinburgh. The house was first registered to a young lady, the daughter of a tea merchant. This was a bold move for it's day as women did not have equal rights or anything like it, but we like to think we have retained that spirit of boldness with our
decor and soft furnishings.
