About Johan Hensens

Ancrum Craig in the Scottish Borders is our home since 1976 and we have run it 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.(SC2135)

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 1999

Why Johan Hensens chose Edinburgh

We bought this apartment when our daughter went to University in Edinburgh. She has meanwhile moved on and since than we use the apartment for holiday lets.

It is in walking distance from the very centre but does not have the crowds, noise and the tartan tat from the Old Town. It is a safe area of the town, and has a village atmosphere. It is close to the large green open spaces of Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

Erica's apartment is on the first floor and there is a lift. The balcony allows you to sit in the open air.

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.

This was a great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with Johann's apartment in Edinburgh. Its location was very convenient. There are shops, pubs, coffee houses and restaurants all within easy walking distance. You can even walk to some of Edinburgh's famous sites on Princes Street, although that is a little longer of a walk--perhaps 30 minutes. But there is no need. There is a bus stop practically at the front door.

The apartment itself is larger than what we have often experienced in Europe. There are 2 bedrooms, a fairly large bathroom, a fairly large living/dining room, a small but adequate kitchen, and an outside balcony.

The bed was certainly comfortable that we got plenty of sleep with no problems.

There is a washing machine in the kitchen. Although there is no dryer, there are several racks to hang clothes on to dry. We made good use of all of this.

This is a first floor apartment, up one story from ground level. There is an elevator for anyone who needs it. There can be a bit of noise in the evening from the pub across the street, but the noise never lasted long and was never a problem.

Johann has a folder with lots of pertinent information. Especially helpful to us were the bus routes with their destinations. Johann is available to answer questions, easily contacted by text or email. Yet the apartment is yours. So if you prefer privacy, you will have it. We stayed 4 nights and only saw Johann on the day we arrived.

In short, we could not recommend this apartment more highly.

Un apartamento muy agradable y bien situado

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado una semana estupenda en el apartamento de Johan.

Nos hemos sentido como en casa, Había muchos extras, cafe, leche, especias, aceite, galletas etc y un detalle que nos encantó fueron unos huevos de gallina de corral que nos trajo Johan de su casa de campo.

Johan nos explicó las cosas más importantes.

Es apartamento está en Stockbridge, un barrio precioso y se puede ir andando al centro dando un paseo muy bonito.

Esta muy bien comunicado por autobus, toda la ciudad lo está.

Sin duda repetiremos.

A fantastic place to stay in Stockbridge

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and tidy upon our arrival. The owner, Johan, was there to greet us and show us around the property. The facilities provided were exactly what we needed for our stay, and everything that we could have needed.

The apartment is ideally situated for exploring Edinburgh. Local shops, bars and eateries are only a minute walk away, along with bus stops for those wanting to use public transport (which is the best way to get around if walking distances are a bit too far). Edinburgh centre os a fifteen minute walk. We parked our car upon arrival and didn't use it again intil we departed for home!

All on all I would recommend a stay here to anyone.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable flat in a great location. Just round the corner from the shops with everything you could need but in a quiet street. Lovely Sunday market with walks along the river, we loved Stockbridge. Hope to be back in the near future.

Peaceful environment

  • 5 of 5

Our first holiday in Scotland was amazing and successful because of this wonderful apartment. Its location was absolutely great next to old town and Princess street. All what needed was close, shops, post office, pharmacy, pubs and diners. Apartment was clean, cosy and suitable to use for two person. We liked that much. Thank you so much to Johan, who gave us great information and was such as wonderful host. We can recommend this warmly who wants to stay in Edinburgh. We can say, we will come back! Riina & Heini
