The
Experience

An excellent address between Mr Purves’ Light Emporium and Elaine’s Vintage Clothes, in bohemian trendy Stockbridge village. Behind the blue door of a classic Georgian terrace and up a couple of flights of stone steps, you’re met by a friendly housekeeper and brimming welcome basket. Unwind after a day’s exploring in the elegant sitting room where two large windows face the street (one way, with little traffic), the cream sofa and bright rugs are tasteful and inviting and the shutters can be closed and a gas fire lit for long evenings – the slick kitchen’s just off here too if you’re dining in. Both bedrooms overlook the quiet garden and are bright and fresh, with original artwork, good mattresses and linen; they share a white-tiled bathroom. Take to the cobbled streets that lead up through New Town teeming with bijou shops, independent booksellers and quirky cafés to pique your curiosity; the energetic can hire bikes or discover the Victorian baths a short stroll away. Comfortable enough for families, bohemian enough for art-lovers, or you might just spread out into Laura’s second apartment a couple of streets away.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Laura Finlayson

  • Cosy up at a fireside table at the legendry old classic pub The Bailie for some of the best hearty pub fare! A stones throw from the apartment just at the end of St Stephen Street
  • Speciality shopping galore, use the wicker basket in the apartment and fill to the brim with artisan village produce such as speciality cheeses from Mellis's, deli produce at Herbies, wIne from Raeburn Fine Wines and tempting patisserie from Florentines
  • Amble by the river on this beautiful walk. Wander through the centuries passing St Bernards Well c1780 in 10 mins then on to historic Dean Village c1128 in only a few mins more. Truly enchanting whatever the time of year and take a camera too!
  • Princes' St (main city thoroughfare) on foot is 10-15 mins or hop on a bus, number 42 at the end of the street and be in the heart of the Old Town up near the castle in mins - or saunter up there at a more leisurely pace - its a lovely downhill walk home
  • Enjoy the sunset at Raeburn Hotel with its West facing balcony - get there early and book a table to dine outside or just enjoy a relaxing sundowner before dinner
  • Sunday market a must! End of street. Another must is to pack trunks and costumes, head to restored Glenogle Baths just 5 mins round in Saxe Coburg Place and of course the awsome Botanics! 10 mins away, wonderful cafe and glasshouse and always something on
