Edinburgh Place


Immaculate and with a peaceful feel in the hip West End Village – hop to and from the festival, rub shoulders with Edinburgh’s trendy set


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


The sunny south-facing apartment spreads over the first floor of a listed townhouse on William Street, once the cobbled artisan quarter, now a colourful oasis of bijou boutiques, cool cafés and well-loved pubs. Rosy red geraniums flashing from the window boxes signal you’ve arrived, and the stone staircase up makes for a characterful entrance (but tricky if you’re less mobile.) You’ll find a welcome bottle of bubbles in the kitchen to celebrate: you’re in Scotland’s handsomest city!  The sitting room is light and airy, with original Georgian shutters, panelling and cornices set-off beautifully against the neutral background. Absorb the surprising peace as you sink into the sofa or watch Edinburgh life unfolding under the dual aspect window. Both the double and twin bedrooms have crisp cotton sheets, and super-snug down pillows and duvets. The pristine bath and rainshower are a treat for tired feet after long days exploring. It’s easy to get to the Festival and Fringe venues, great eateries are literally just downstairs, and it’s only three minutes’ walk to Prince’s street with galleries and museums galore.

Our family with two kids, aged 4 & 5 yrs stayed at Edinburgh Place on May. The location is absolutely brilliant, best we´ve stayed in Edinburgh, and the flat itself is lovely. Clean and spacious. Everything is just around the corner but the street is very quiet and you can relax in peace after a busy day. Louisa was wonderful and communication with her was easy from the start. We´re definitely returning Edinburgh Place one day!


beautiful flat in a super location,would most definately stay again

It's not often a beautiful holiday rental is even better than what you see in the web posting. This is one of those rare places. Bright, airy feeling and very clean. Comfy beds, and well equipped with dish washer and high spec washer/dryer. Smooth booking and great reception. Perfect location: two minutes from airport bus/tram and walking distance to shopping, railway station(s), tour buses and even the Royal Mile and Castle if you don't mind the uphill. Very pleasant neighbourhood, quiet to be so central. We would definitely stay here again.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Louisa Marston

  • Wander down the Dean Water to artsy Stockbridge and it's trendy Sunday Farmers Market. Pop into cavernous fine cheese purveyor IJ Mellis, enjoy a pint in the The Bailey bar and peruse the vintage and indy shops on St Stephen Street.
  • Get cultured out for the day with a 15 min walk to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, a must see for contemporary and modern art. After, hop on the free shuttle bus to the National Gallery and stroll home through Princes Street Gardens.
  • Get the day off to a good start at our neighbour, Herbies. Lovely breakfast rolls and coffees, famous for soup, quiche and speciality bread. Open 7 days a week.
  • Head down to the haunted and historical Grassmarket, sampling whisky at The Last Drop (the name bares resonance) and visit the old kirkyard of Greyfriars Bobby. The Saturday market is full of ethnic food and delicious ice cream from Over Langshaw Farm.
  • Tour the Queen's residence, Holyrood Palace, followed by a hike up Arthur's Seat for a full glorious 360 view of Edinburgh and it's surroundings. Make sure you walk back down via the Sheep's Heid Inn, Duddingston for well earned meal and pint of fine ale.
