Our First Themed Self Catering Apartment


We’ve created a cultural hideaway that allows writers and creatives to unwind in bookish comfort. Taking time out to really sink into a good read helps you truly switch off and recharge. Curl up with a cuppa, or your favourite Burgundy, on the gloriously elegant Chesterfield and escape into whatever world you choose.

Host your Book Club in a Luxury Holiday Let

If there’s one thing us book lovers enjoy more than reading books it’s talking about them. Even better if you can do it in the company of fellow introverts and get into a heated book discussion over dinner afterwards! Our Dundee self catering has all you need to host a memorable literary gathering. 

We’ve teamed up with local suppliers The Cheesery, Dundee – their delicious produce (including a delightful selection of wines), can be bundled up perfectly, ready for your arrival so you can create the most heavenly Charcuterie board, offering great value at a small additional cost per head.

Gather fellow literature lovers in a cosy atmosphere and discuss books over wine and nibbles. The more strong opinions, the better!

Self Catering for Bookworms in the Literary City of Dundee

Emerge from your bookish nest to take in the literary delights of Dundee. Our self catering apartment is within walking distance of the city’s cultural highlights and amenities. 

Writers seeking inspiration should explore the RRS Discovery, the McManus Gallery or Scotland’s first design museum, the V&A. If you’ve crushed your TBR pile (doubtful at our place), The Bookhouse Broughty Ferry and Big Dog Books are local indie bookshops. There’s also the Book Attic for second-hand bargains and Waterstones. For writerly charm you can’t beat The George Orwell, a cosy friendly pub that hosts literary lock ins and open mic nights.
