Overview

About the property

Apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland - Tranquillity Amidst Edinburgh's Georgian Splendour - Lovely 5 Minute Walk To All Amenities

You'll be in Edinburgh's most splendid Georgian location amidst this UNESCO World Heritage site. Here the grand façade is arranged around a lavish circular garden, with restricted road access affording it a surreal sense of calm and silence - perhaps best appreciated after dark under the New Town's atmospheric white street lights. Despite the peace, bohemian Stockbridge is a delightful 5 minute walk along cobbled streets, whilst George Street's high-end shops and venues are similarly close by to the south. Accessed via a private gate down a short stone staircase, the front door can be found opening onto a sunny but sheltered courtyard which is a magical spot for al-fresco breakfasting or evening drinks. Once inside the open-plan layout is clean, comfortable and fully-equipped for your stay, with enough period features (high skirting boards and working shutters) to remind you where you are.

Location

Nearest Airport
9 Miles
Edinburgh Airport
Nearest Train
1 Miles
Waverley Station
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The East Lothian coast with its myriad walks, links courses and pretty coastal towns can be reached quickly by car or train, as can the East Neuk of Fife with a string of charming fishing villages.

Travel:

Edinburgh Airport has multiple flights per day to London and European destinations. The airport is easily reached by a cheap and regular bus or tram which stops minutes from the flat.

The flat is handy for both of Edinburgh's mainline rail stations which serve the entire UK comprehensively.

Car use isn't required in Edinburgh since everywhere is walkable, but drivers will find restricted paid parking right outside the front door, or longer-term parking in one of the city's main car parks.

Distances:

Since Edinburgh is a compact city and a joy to walk around, distances are irrelevant given the prime city centre location. However those wishing to explore further afield will find Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and St Andrews within easy reach by car or public transport, with the majestic highlands and the rural Scottish Borders quite feasible for day trips for those with a car.

Notes:
Edinburgh's peerless New Town leaves an unique impression on visitors. Restraint & understatement characterise what is a magical place to spend time. This - together with the good relationship we have with our excellent friendly neighbours - means it's never going to be a party pad, so it won't be for everyone. Respect that view and you'll find an endearing home-from-home which will get under your skin, where your enjoyment is our first priority and to which we feel sure you'll want to return. Do get in touch for a friendly response to any questions you might have, and if you decide it's for you we wish you a good time and wonderful memories. And haste ye back!

Perfect for a week or weekend in Edinburgh!

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely flat with caring and thoughtful owners! We spent 5 nights and walked everywhere. The neighbourhood is very nice and quiet and the flat is warm & cozy. After arriving late in the evening due to the delayed arrival of our luggage, it was wonderful to see Martin & Weng had supplied some delicious breakfast items, bottle of wine and chocolate! So we were all set. We rented a car for two days and had no issue with on-street parking just outside the flat. We hope to return soon. Thanks for a great holiday!

Cosmopolitan and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This stylish flat was perfectly suited to our long weekend in Edinburgh, cosmopolitan and comfortable at the same time. We walked everywhere — Stockbridge, the Royal Mile, Princes Street Gardens, to the castle, Arthur's Seat and the train station. Too many great restaurants in the area for our short stay! But then, we cooked at home, too, in the wonderful kitchen. Absolutely delightful place with a comfortable bed and sparkling bathroom, and the owners left clear and simple instructions before, during and after our stay. One of the nicest places we've ever stayed.

Exquisite Edinburgh Flat

  • 5 of 5

Martin and Weng are truly fabulous hosts. They were responsive to our questions and requests; it never felt like we were bothering them, which made for a peaceful holiday. Their home is located in a hip neighborhood that is in easy walking distance to all the city has to offer. The best part of their home is the quiet and serenity when you are ready to call it a day. We cannot wait to return; this is the home away from home that makes vacation so special. Thank you, Martin and Weng!

Quiet, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

A cozy and conveniently located apartment in an extremely quiet neighborhood. Pretty much in walking distance to everything, including Waverly station which is where all tours and the Hop-on, Hop-off buses leave. There is a little grocery store down the hill towards Stockbridge where you’ll find everything you need and several restaurants on George Street. The apartment is very clean, well-maintained and very thoughtfully furnished with a traveler in mind. The owners had prepared everything and left little conveniences such as coffee, tea, a bottle of wine and everything else you might need for breakfast if you arrive late.
