The
Experience

The National Portrait Gallery, the Playhouse and the Botanic Gardens are close, and you are a skip away from Broughton Street, bustling with artisan cafes, irresistible restaurants and quirky shops; there’s an award-winning butcher’s, too. This beautiful flat, built in 1819, is a large luminous space whose proportions are Georgian and whose ceilings are lofty. Sash windows are generous and floors are original, with pine boards sanded and polished, and shutters, cornices and fireplaces have been restored to their early 19th-century glory. Throughout are keepsakes of the owner’s travels: Tibetan chests, a vintage sari from India in a gilt frame, rice baskets from Laos and peacock paintings from Nepal. There’s an elegant drawing room with a chaise longue from which you can gaze onto gardens, trees and sky, and a sophisticated kitchen with ancient flagstones and a box window seat – perfect for your early morning coffee. Bedrooms are light and airy with Siberian goose feather quilts and serene views over London Street, bathrooms have heated floors. Stroll to fashionable Princes Street and George Street.

Reviews

This apartment is truly a little gem in the heart of Edinburgh. We are annual visitors to the Fringe Festival and have stayed in many apartments but this one is by far the best! Beautifully decorated, warm and comfortable. It was a delight to come back to after a busy day. The quiet cobbled street and the comfortable beds meant we had a wonderful nights sleep. It was home from home for us and we will definitely stay again!

Kay, Redditch

This apartment is authentic and tasteful and in a fabulous location. The furnishings and equipment are all provided to a high specification, and the owners have added personal touches to the accommodation which are interesting and lovely. The beds are extremely comfortable and the street is quiet so its possible to enjoy the beauty and bustle of Edinburgh city and come back to relax in lovely luxurious accommodation. The apartment was warm and cosy for our stay, when we had some snow fall, and we all enjoyed the underfloor heating and roll top bath! Highly recommended.

Angela, Littlehampton

Wonderful location, 10 minutes' walk to the town centre in a quiet location but surrounded by restaurants and other amenities. Best of both worlds... Absolutely lovely flat in immacculate condition and decorated with great taste, we were very happy to be in a sunny home with a lot of character rather than in a cold hotel. The kitchen is fully equipped and it was lovely to start our day there with a cup of tea and the newspaper (bought on the shop at the corner) - I could live in that kitchen, curled up by the window with a book! Fully recommended to all who want to spend some time in Edinburgh

Maria, Geneva

Wonderful flat in a fabulous Edinburgh location! The flat mixes being beautifully furnished with a very 'at home' feel. It is perfect for either staying in and being cosy with friends, or finding a little corner (window seat is lovely) to curl up with a book, or stretching one's feet and seeing glorious Edinburgh with everything in an easy walkable distance. This flat is a great find - a treasure that I hope others will enjoy as much as we all did in July.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Katie & Andy Ryan

  • We're thrilled to be listed in Telegraph Travel as a top place to stay in Edinburgh. Very easy to get to. Catch the tram from the airport to St Andrew’s Square for a short walk to the flat. The main train station is also only 10-15 minutes walk away
  • Broughton Street is brimming with cafes and eateries. Try two of our favourites - Broughton Street deli for a delicious brunch and Casa Angelina to feast on homemade cakes by the trained pastry chef – chocolate and and beetroot is particularly good!
  • The flat is perfectly positioned in the heart of historic Edinburgh. Nearby is Calton Hill with its fabulous views, and the National Portrait Gallery with its great cafe. The Castle, the Royal Mile and the Botanical Gardens are within walking distance
  • Love to shop? Head to Broughton Street or trendy Stockbridge for independent boutiques (we love Curiouser and Curiouser on Broughton St). For the latest fashion there is Harvey Nichols, the designer stores of Multrees Walk and elegant George Street
  • Take a relaxing evening stroll around the Georgian New Town and seep up its historic charm, finishing with a drink in our favourite local pub, the Cumberland Bar (on Cumberland Street) sitting in the beer garden in summer or by a roaring log fire in winter
  • And finally: Simply relax with a Nespresso in the kitchen window seat and see if you can see a fox cub playing in the gardens below
