I'm a qualified Company Secretary with 20 years' experience working for a public company and I live in a mews house in Edinburgh's New Town just minutes from the company properties. I run day to day business and am always on hand to meet guests, offer advice and practical assistance whenever possible. When not working, I can usually be found on the golf course or performing with a local contemporary choir which sings to raise money for good causes in and around Edinburgh.

I have a great passion for interior design and customer service, and both of these have come in really useful when setting up The Mews Company! I discovered the 4 properties which now make up our business and have furnished them to the highest standard. In 2012, I moved to Pittenweem in the East Neuk of Fife with my partner and family and have since established a business letting 5 cottages in the gardens of our new home (Madeira in Fife) and a second business managing other properties in the area (Elie Select). It’s a beautiful location for family and visitors alike to enjoy country life and the perfect alternative to complement our city centre properties.  We also have a wonderful log cabin in Perthshire (Our Cabin in the Woods).


Why A Mews House?

Mews Houses are completely unique; these charming properties can be found behind the Georgian splendour of the townhouses around Edinburgh's New Town. Originally built as stables, with a carriage house below and living quarters above, many mews streets have been refurbished to create beautiful sweeping rows of homes. The cosy properties benefit from a central location and the convenience this brings, but are on quiet cobbled streets away from the main hustle and bustle. Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, they are the perfect option for your stay in Edinburgh.

Small in stature but big on character. We guarantee you won't want to stay anywhere else.
