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

We had 5 lovely days staying in Saxe Coburg and visiting Edinburgh. It is a beautiful traditional apartment in a charming part of the city, very comfortable and well appointed. The hosts had even left us snacks, drinks and fruit which was most welcome! We would definitely recommend to friends and family.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Saxe Coburg place in Edinburgh. The apartment is clean, fresh and homely and located in a beautiful area with upbeat shops and cafes near by.

Diane, Armagh

Just round the corner from all the shops, cafes, restaurants (some need advance booking as they are so popular!) and a short walk to the excellent Botanic Gardens, in a super quiet square in Stockbridge. The airy, light living room is ample space for four. Its a fair walk, with inevitable Edinburgh Hills, but we did the walk into Central Edinburgh every day for two weeks (but there's a good bus service as well). Laura and team couldn't have been more helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

Laurence, Harpenden

Had the loveliest stay here. Perfectly situated in the quiet Stockbridge on a lovely street, yet easy to walk to pretty much everywhere. Upon arrival we were kindly welcomed by Laura, who gave us great recommendations, explained everything in detail, and treated us to some delicious local biscuits and fruits. Generally the check-in, check-out and the stay were so pleasant, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are in Stockbridge. Which I hope will happen :)

Mariya, Highland, MD

Couldn't fault Laura as the host and Landlady. Gorgeous apartment in a wonderful setting a short walk from the popular area of Stockbridge. Would 100% book with Laura again.

Suzanne, London

The Stockbridge apartment was a perfect choice for our party of 2 couples. Check in was a simple and they were very flexible with our earlier than planned arrival time. Laura's communication was timely and informative...we had no unanswered questions. Regarding the location, we were a 5 minute walking to multiple great restaurants and pubs in Stockbridge and even walking to the Royal Mile was pretty easy if you do not mind a couple of hills. Overall, the apartment and location could not have been better.

Chris, Clayton

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.

Elisabeth, Blackburn

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.

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
