Overview

About the property

Stockbridge, Central Edinburgh, Scotland - Quiet Apartment with Parking Garage

A quiet, modern, fully equipped apartment on the 2nd floor with an open view to the South. It is located in a little cul de sac just off the main shopping street. There is a roof terrace for spending some relaxing time in the sun or an impromptu BBQ. Our other apartment is a mere 100 metres away (Ref SC269). Stockbridge is a vibrant part of Edinburgh’s city centre. This area has a lively village atmosphere and a choice of pubs, good food shops and restaurants. It lies on the edge of the famous New Town (built in the early 1800’s) and the very centre of Edinburgh, with the castle and Princes Street just 15 minutes walk away. From the nearby bus stop buses depart every 10 minutes or so to all major sights of the town. The famous Royal Botanical Gardens is a short and pleasant walk away. The water of Leith Walk Way is a mere 20 meters away.

About Johan Hensens

Ancrum Craig , in Ancrum nr Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders, is our home since 1976, and we have run this as a B&B from the beginning ! We bought a flat for our daughter to live in when she studied in Edinburgh. That was way back in 99. On graduation Erica moved to London we we decided to renovate the flat and rent it out for short term holiday lets.

This was successful and in 2006 we bought Pamela's flat next door.

We meet and greet all our guests, and do all the cleaning and maintenance. You can find full details of our accommodations on our website.

Johan Hensens purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Johan Hensens chose Edinburgh

Stockbridge has a village atmosphere at the edge of the centre of Edinburgh. The town centre, Central station etc are a mere 15 minutes walk or a 5 minutes bus ride away.

It is a safe part of town: lively, but without the crowds, noise, tartan tat and general mayhem of the Royal Mile and the Old Town.

Good shops, bars and restaurants are within a 200m radius. The Royal Botanic Gardens and the Water of Leith walkway are just minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Pamela's flat has the advantage of open views to the south and the luxury of a secure parking garage on the ground floor. Anyone who has driven a car in Edinburgh knows what a pain and how expensive parking in the city is!

All the shopping you are likely to need during your stay is available within 200 meters. There are also a large number of quality pubs and restaurants just round the corner.

You can walk to all the main tourist attractions from the apartment but there is also a bus stop round the corner with a frequent service to all part of the town, including the university.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Johan. Karl and i would like to thank you for your hospitality. We had everything we needed in the apartment and the location is ideal. We very much enjoyed our stay and would like to return again at some stage. We will recommend you to any friends or family who are thinking of travelling to Scotland. We hope we left the place in a reasonable condition. Thanks again. Yvonne and Karl.

Great location, lovely apt, would recommend

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what we wanted, close to the main Edinburgh attractions without being on top of them. The Stockbridge area is wonderful (recommend the Sunday morning market, yummy!). Plenty of room to relax, cook and feel like you're at home, away from home. 20 mins (slow walker) to Princes Street, 10 mins to the Botanical Gardens. We used the parking facility which was great, allowing the freedom to explore further afield (The Kelpies @ Falkirk, do it). Lots of great places to eat on Stockbridge high street. It was lovely to be greeted personally by the owner and shown around instead of a using a key safe. Description accurate, apt clean, facilities as described. Would def recommend.

Perfect for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Apt was recently remodeled with beautiful kitchen and bathroom. It was a good amount of space for us and our 2 teenage daughtera. It was a nice, comfortable home to return to each day. Loved the Stockbridge area and its coffee shops, restaurants and shops. We'd definitely stay at Pamela's apt again.

Perfect Edinburgh Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect apartment and location to enjoy a vacation in Edinburgh. My husband and I stayed here for 1 week in June while visiting family, it felt like the right size for us. The flat itself is up 2 flights of carpeted stairs and had everything you might need. Johan the owner met us and gave us a tour of the flat, it was clean, with a nice bright sitting room and kitchen, bed was comfy and the shower was great! Stockbridge is a neighborhood full of character! The place was quiet and safe, this area had lots of shopping, with a local Sainsburys and cafes right on your door step. There are nice walks in the area and along the Water of Leith. The bus stop is just around the corner, but it only takes about 10mins to walk up the hill, into town center. Speak to Johan about the parking situation if you have a car. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Great find

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home away from home. Clean, quiet. Comfy bed. Manager provided instruction on how things ran and book was very handy reference. Close to restaurants, pubs, shops. Steps away for buses which took us all over the city. Garage was a great perk. Would recommend this property to family and friends and would stay there again.

Convenient, comfortable, warm accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by Johan who gave us a helpful tour of the flat showing us how everything worked etc. The flat is ideally situated for an Edinburgh city break. It's within walking distance of the city centre and castle and for those who aren't able to walk so far, there's a bus stop at the end of the road. Just around the corner is the main street in Stockbridge, where there are plenty of restaurants, pubs and small shops We enjoyed the freedom of staying in self catering accommodation rather than a hotel and would definitely recommend Johan's accommodation.
