Holistic homestays

Affordable Edinburgh retreats

You have a choice of renting a comfortable room or a flat from a group of friends and neighbours who live on the streets adjacent to the quiet, scenic Holyrood Park, near the royal Palace of Holyrood House, each one with a stunning view of Arthur’s Seat. You can attend a yoga or meditation class (group or private session) at a private home, and follow it with a massage, reflexology or Reiki treatment in an informal spa setting. Enjoy healthy organic vegetarian breakfast and dinner, or if you prefer, choose to explore the many restaurants that are a short walk away from your room or flat.

In your free time, there’s a wealth of attractions and activities in this vibrant city. Stroll along the Royal Mile where you can listen to the buskers and take in free museums all the way to the Castle, where you get a wonderful view of the city. If you’re feeling energetic after your yoga class you can hike up to the top of Arthur’s Seat or hop on a bus for a countryside excursion. You can continue to relax at the Royal Botanic Gardens or for tea and shortbread in a cosy cafe. You might attend a folk music gig at a neighbour’s house or hang out with the locals who can show you all the best places to go in town.
