The
Experience

It’s restful here. Those who want to explore Edinburgh’s treasures are close to the Royal Mile, Botanical Gardens, museums, galleries and theatres, traditional and innovative restaurants and live music from the concert halls and pubs.

Memorably good breakfasts (often accompanied by classical music or jazz) at the convivial dining table include freshly-squeezed orange juice, homemade jams and full Scottish if you like. Naomi is relaxed and happy to chat to you about the local music and art scene, or to leave you in peace.

Up the cantilevered staircase in walnut and mahogany, below a hand-painted cupola find restful bedrooms full of finds from travels to far-flung places. One faces the street but they are both quiet at night.

Reviews

My wife has stayed here before and I now know why! Ideally located on the edge of the Georgian New Town at Stockbridge in a grand terrace . We walked from Waverley station in 25 minutes but buses area available. Plenty of character pubs ,restaurants, cafes, two superb bike shops, one with cafe , all nearby. Naomi and her husband's house is full of interesting art , books and furniture . Breakfast dining is grand, in all respects . Large bedrooms with easy chairs, we choose the front room with en- suite .

This is a lovely place to stay, I was sorry to leave a cosy huge bedroom with fresh daffodils, lots of good books, tray of goodies, comfy bed and super bathroom. Naomi is a welcoming and gentle host. Her home is full of artwork, all is relaxing and gracious. Breakfasts there are super-fresh and a make for good start to busy days in Edinburgh, where everything is within walking distance. This is a good area too, for finding restaurants and pubs in the evenings, when you're ready for staying close to home.

Annie, London

This was just our sort of place. Extremely comfortable and individualistic. We appreciated the artwork and books. We had a lovely room at the back looking out over New Town gardens. Breakfasts were very good and our hosts could not have been more welcoming. The area is very interesting and all parts of the city can be easily accessed by foot. It might not suit someone who likes minimalism and de luxe bathrooms, but for us it was a home from home and our ideal for a temporary stay.

Barbara, Winchester

A quiet retreat from the hubbub of the festival to the most exclusive area of Georgian Edinburgh. Sitting at a long table for breakfast (everything but starting with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit salad) Naomi listened carefully to our comments on Edinburgh Festival events and helped us chose others. Having a culturally aware hostess who is "in the know" about what is going on around was a priceless benefit. We'll be back.

Lorenzo, Roma

My boyfriend and I had a thoroughly great time here. Naomi was welcoming and very accommodating, and made us feel at home immediately. They have a beautiful home - and the breakfast really is delicious! I've already recommended it to friends.

Henrietta, London

Naomi, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful with ideas on what to do, where to eat and drink and with directions. Her beautiful home has many interesting paintings and artefacts. It is very comfortable and ideally located, a few minutes walk away from the 'biz' of Stockbridge with its individual shops, restaurants, bars and a high quality Sunday morning street market. It’s a 15 minute walk to Princes Street. Breakfast was lovely with fruit, porridge and a full cooked Scottish if required, or any combination. Naomi catered admirably for a gluten-free diet requirement.

Location

The neighbourhood

From No 7 stroll along the Water of Leith to The Botanical Gardens and the Gallery of Modern Art; Princes Street is ten-minutes’ walk. A bus tour is good for the city’s highlights, so is roaming higgledy streets and smaller galleries. And, of course, Edinburgh is the Festival City; super-busy in August. Taste haggis, cullen skink and stovies; there’s plenty of less traditional cuisine too – and lively markets like nearby Stockbridge.

Local points of interest from Naomi Jennings

  • Edinburgh is a Unesco World Heritage site with its Old and New Towns. 7 Gloucester Place is in the Georgian New Town dating from the 18th c. Below is the village of Stockbridge with a bustling Sunday Market with food and other artisan items
  • The Botanical Gardens are not far from the house. You can spend many hours here. It is free to enter except for the glass palm houses. It has one of the greatest collections of plants and shrubs from China in the world.
  • The Water of Leith. A footpath runs along the river upstream to the galleries of Modern art and out of town to the Pentland Hills and downstream to Leith where the Royal yacht Britannia lies in the Port.
  • Almost everything in Edinburgh is within walking distance. The Modern Art Galleries, the Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of Scotland are not far.
  • Many restaurants and pubs, some with live music, jazz, folk, traditional etc. Edinburgh is full of musicians.
  • Concert halls, theatres, small art and large cinemas.

Introducing

Naomi Jennings

The Jennings have an effortless enthusiasm for meeting people and know Edinburgh and its art and music scene so well that their guidance is invaluable. Having lived abroad and travelled a good deal themselves – while always keeping a home in Scotland - they know what’s needed.
