The
Experience

A ten-minute trot from Princes Street is a Georgian square dating from 1821. The Glenogle Baths are on the corner and the boho shops are a stroll away – hard to imagine a more privileged spot. This corniced, shuttered, sash-windowed apartment, its rooms flooded with light, spreads itself across the ground floor of a delightful townhouse on Saxe Coburg Place. Enter the wide hallway, turn left in front of the stair… there on the table to welcome you are a half bottle of prosecco, Edinburgh shortbread, fresh fruit and flowers. With its palette of soft yellows and creams, and immaculate furnishings in classic-modern style, this is a perfect pad for culture lovers and families alike. You get a sunny drawing room with an illuminated glass drinks cabinet, a white rug and cream sofas, a dining area by the window, and a top-notch kitchenette. You’ll love the farmers’ market on Sundays at Jubilee Gardens, and the legendary Bailie Bar near the Water of Leith, a cosy traditional pub. Return to serene bedrooms with deep window seats facing the small shared garden, and access to that lovely, lush, leafy square.

Reviews

From the moment I booked, I knew I had made the right choice. Laura's communication was speedy and friendly; I knew we’d be well looked after. We were given a very warm welcome by Laura's partner Eric and he went out of his way to be accommodating on our departure. The apartment is just like the photos, and all the extra touches – fresh flowers in every room, Prosecco, crisps, fruit, shortbread, quality tea and coffee – made it even more special. Whilst the bathrooms and kitchenette are on the small side, they have everything you need. A very special place to stay.

Staying in Saxe-Coburg apartment was real joy, with its beautiful living room and comfortable bedrooms. The proximity to Stockbridge village with its pubs and shops was a bonus, especially eating at Scran and Scallie's restaurant. Also nearby were the Botanical Gardens, a lovely day out. Prince Street and the castle were only a short 20 minute walk away. The wonderful Victorian swimming pool two doors away was not to be missed. I would recommend the apartment to friends and hope to return in the future.

Location

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 2 doors along and of course the awsome Botanics! 10 mins away, wonderful cafe and glasshouse and always something on
