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.
