The Experience

Past the smart railings and down well-worn stone steps to a sun-trap courtyard and the basement flat, which is surprisingly spacious, light and bright. You’ll meet Barbara on the way in, wearing the full dress tunic of a Grenadier Guard – one of Hugh’s ancestors.

The open-plan living room is full of antique rugs and furniture, original art and quirky bits and bobs. Working wooden shutters keep you cosy and there are books and games for wet days. When the sun shines, it streams into the sitting room and you have a view of the second courtyard – this one is just for you.

Bread and butter and jam for your first breakfast is in the kitchen; stock up in Broughton Street, a five-minute walk for an award-winning butcher, organic food shop, fishmonger and also an artisan bakery with glorious cinnamon buns. Stockbridge, a short wander, has artisan shops, good restaurants and a Sunday market. You’re well placed for everything here – both Princes and George street are a 5-minute walk.

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Pippa's beautifully decorated, comfortable flat which felt like a home from home for us. The kitchen is compact but well enough equipped to cook the goodies on offer in the many excellent food shops nearby if you prefer to eat in and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking distance if you want to eat out. It's a great base from which to explore both Edinburgh's green spaces - the Royal Botanic Gardens is a short walk away - and its many museums and galleries. Just one caveat, getting in and out of the shower/bath is a little tricky.

Susan, Bath

We had a lovely break in this beautiful flat in a perfect location; just a few minutes from Princess Street yet quiet. It was a pleasure to stay amongst beautiful Georgian streets/buildings. The accommodation has everything you need, pleasant decor and feels like home. The area is a short walk to restaurants, and enjoyed a traffic free path to Leith. We also loved the Stockbridge area 5 mins from the flat: great bistro pub and nice small and interesting shops. We enjoyed some of the comedy shows on offer at the start of the Fringe.

Gregory, Hastings

We had a lovely stay in Pippa's comfortable and beautifully furnished flat. The street is very quiet and just a short walk from the city centre, making it the perfect base to explore Edinburgh. We would definitely stay again!

Kate, Sheffield

We stayed for a whole week in Pippa’s lovely flat and enjoyed exploring Edinburgh immensely. The flat is in a wonderful location, close to the city centre and yet peaceful. There is so much to see and do in and around the city and we will definitely return in the future. Pippa was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Julia, Poole

We stayed at Pippa’s apartment for two nights. Comfortable, clean and in an excellent position to walk into Edinburgh city centre which took about 10 minutes. The parking is free on the weekends but paid parking during the week. We visited the Botanical Gardens and also the castle. Restrictions were in place in both locations but still enjoyed the visits. Would recommend the open top buses also.

Sonia, Bristol

A refined and comfortable apartment in an excellent location - uphill when you go out, but downhill when you return, which is the best way round! Pippa is very friendly and helpful. Yet another Sawday’s hit.

Colin, Horsham

A great flat in a wonderful location. Quirky and a great sun trap in the terrace outside the sitting room/ kitchen.

Steve, Morpeth

What a great location to stay in Edinburgh with restaurants, shops and sightseeing on your doorstep yet in a very private spot. Pippa was very welcoming and the apartment is beautifully roomy and comfortable.

Rosamund, Warwick

No 10 was perfectly situated for a visit to our daughter at University. Very central but peaceful and close to everything that we could need. Pippa was an excellent host - we had a really warm welcome and a pot of home-made raspberry jam was a lovely, personal touch. The apartment is spacious, immaculate and full of character - just what we were looking for, with an incredibly comfortable bed and charming terrace area. We will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thank you so much Pippa, for such a wonderful stay.

Izzy, Fenny Bentley

What a grand spot from which to explore the city, and a very quiet, warm space to return to. Just lovely.

Nicola, Sawday's Inspector

We had a great three night stay at this fabulous apartment. The owners are very helpful and the location is spot-on. The apartment has all amenities you would expect and the city is approximately a 10-15 min walk, which is perfect. The area around the apartment is lovely, with a park just a stone's throw away. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and access to public transport is close by. We would highly recommend the apartment as a perfect place to base yourself whilst visiting this amazing city.

Sally, Wirral

Absolutely stunning flat in fantastic central location. We stayed for the Hogmanay celebrations and were made to feel immediately at home by kind and generous hosts. Lovely homely touches enhanced our stay : beautiful furniture, decor and objects in the flat plus excellent bookcase with boardgames also! Short walk to all amenities but lovely quiet surroundings for a few days in the capital city of Scotland. Would definitely visit again.

Claire, Auchterhouse

We had a perfect week end at 10 London Street. The flat is very conveniently located very comfortable and the owners extremely nice and helpful. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit.

Edouard, London

Quiet, lovely and spotless flat - in a great location. Would certainly return!

Jeremy, london

Wonderful apartment in a great location in New Town--spacious, quiet, well-decorated, fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable queen-size bed with sofa bed if needed. Helpful owner who lives in same building. Small grocery across the street and lots of restaurants on street around the corner. Within walking distance to every place we wanted to see in Edinburgh, from Old Town's Royal Mile, to Stockbridge & Dean Village, Leith and the HMY Royal Britannia, Botanic Gardens and Water of Leith pathway. We would definitely stay again.

The neighbourhood

You're in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, elegant broad streets and squares created in the late 1800s and lived in by the great and good of the city - you'll find blue plaques everywhere in its cobbled streets. You're just a 5-minute walk from Waverley Station so it makes no sense to bring a car. Almost everything in the city is walkable to from here, including the Botanic Gardens.

Local points of interest from Pippa Lockhart

  • Heritage, heritage everywhere. Wander the cobbled streets gazing up at the splendour of the Georgian Architecture, spotting plaques to the great and good of Edinburgh’s past.
  • Wander around the corner to Scotland St, made famous by the books of Alexander McCall Smith. Spot the plaque to John Gibson Lockhart, the son-in-law of the great Walter Scott.
  • Shop to your heart’s content in the artisan shops of Broughton St, or pick up an artwork from one of the little galleries on nearby Dundas St. Stroll along to Stockbridge to its second hand shops and its Sunday market.
  • Pop into the organic shop, the artisan bakery or the award-winning butcher just around the corner for some delicious supplies.
  • Relax over a cuppa, a pint or a meal at one of the myriad cafes, pubs and restaurants that are just a stone’s throw away. Sit and people watch or read your book. It is part of New Town life.
  • The great thing about living in the New Town is that you can amble everywhere – festival venues, Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, The National Galleries, Princes St, The Botanic Gardens, Arthurs Seat – you name it and it’s an easy walk. It’s brilliant!


Pippa Lockhart

Pippa is originally from Perth, Australia, but has lived here for many years now. She's an ex-journalist and radio producer. Her husband Hugh is Scottish and they met while playing the trumpet in an orchestra - in fact Hugh fell in love with Pippa listening to her play. They have three children and all the family play the trumpet - but not while you are staying downstairs!
