Bells Brae House


Bed and Breakfast

The property owner

Hosted by Stewart


Restored in 1948 for the painter Alexander Zyw by the late Sir Basil Spence to incorporate the adjoining Victorian schoolhouse as an artist's studio. As one of the oldest inhabited domestic buildings in Edinburgh and recently enhanced by the current owner, this bed and breakfast now offers a combination of period charm and modern luxury. You get the best of both worlds at Bells Brae House - a historic house situated on the Water of Leith in the peaceful leafy setting of the Dean Village, with its narrow cobbled streets steeped in history. Such tranquillity exists just 5 minutes walk from Princes Street, the New Town, the Dean Gallery and the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art. View the Anthony Gormley sculptures as you wander along the Water of Leith Walkway to the bohemian village of Stockbridge with its vibrant shops, restaurants and bars.
