After the huge success of our fist Craft Café, we received funding to open our second Craft Café in Edinburgh in 2013. Run in partnership with Impact Arts, our Café is open one day a week, providing a fun, social and artistic environment. An inspiring place for those wishing to learn new skills, practice old ones or simply chat over a cup of coffee and cake. Read more about the café here.

Lennox house has the feel of a grand, yet friendly family home. Large south facing windows let light flood into beautiful, recently redecorated rooms. Soft, vibrant colours and plenty of warm yellow contrast with the period features to create a sense of calm cosiness with areas of exciting interest. Bedrooms are intimate, warm and full of character and outside two enclosed gardens are alive with activity in the warmer months. These delightful outdoor spaces are real suntraps and a pond adds to the feeling of sophisticated tranquillity.
Lennox House is the best of both worlds. Calm and relaxing when you want it and exciting and vibrant when you fancy a bit of stimulation. The nurses and carers here are a happy, hospitable team who encourage fun and joy. Children and pets make frequent visits, which adds to the gentle buzz of the place and there’s always plenty going on, whatever your ability.
Nestling in the Grange, one of Edinburgh’s most exclusive and leafy suburbs, St Raphael’s is an impressive, bright and airy art deco building with 63 en-suite rooms.
