Welcome to Orchard B&B – your home from home in Edinburgh.

Looking for somewhere refreshing to stay? A base in Edinburgh that offers the comforts of home, without any of the stuffiness of a traditional B&B? We think we have just the thing for you.

We offer a welcome to our family home where you can expect a warm and friendly stay, while still having your own space and privacy. Think of Orchard B&B more like a homestay than a traditional B&B. It’s friendly, informal and relaxed, while still providing all the comforts you want in your time away from your own home.


Our delicious breakfast is continental and self-service, so you can ‘come to’ gently in the morning, at your own pace. Our homemade bircher muesli is delicious! You can help yourself to teas or coffee at any time.

Where to find us

Conveniently located for Edinburgh’s Dean and Modern Art galleries, the Botanical Gardens and bus routes into the city centre (just a 10 minute journey from the end of the road), Orchard Road makes an ideal base.

Your Hosts

Your hostsKate, Andrew and ‘wee’ Henry are your hosts. We love to welcome visitors to our home, Edinburgh and Scotland. As keen travellers ourselves, we enjoy nothing more than helping guests get the most out of their stay, so if you are looking for advice on what to see and do, just ask.

We really enjoy meeting new people and know just what is needed to make your stay relaxed and comfortable. The friendships we have made through our own travels as well as our visitors are what makes running our B&B so enjoyable.


It was lovely to come home to your B&B each evening after my course at the RBG Edinburgh. The walk through the park to the gardens each day gave me the head time to prepare for the day ahead, and time to relax at the end of a busy day of learning. Being able to use the open plan dining room made it easy for me to eat cheaply ‘at home’ without having to dine out every night – really appreciated. I would recommend your B&B for anyone doing courses at the Botanics.

Ideal base for the Botanics

The bircher muesli and rhubarb from your garden were absolutely delicious and made a refreshing change from the classic B&B fry-up! Thank you for looking after us so well in your lovely home. We’ll be back.
