For friends or family: a cool, light-filled flat overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens. Stroll or bus into central Edinburgh

Wow! A stunner of a flat overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens and within easy walking distance of trendy Stockbridge, where you can dine at Tom Kitchin’s Scran & Scallie Bistro. Once part of a handsome Georgian mansion, it retains its elegance but has a smart, crisp feel, with pops of colour, bright rugs and cushions and cool kitchen chairs. It’s down several steps at lower ground level but is spacious and flooded with light. Owner Claudia greets and knows what makes a place special and spoiling so you’re left top-notch coffee, wine, homemade jam and essentials. Bedrooms have views and you’ll sleep like a baby on excellent mattresses; the master room has an oak four-poster, green tartan textiles and a sparkling en suite shower room, while the other two bedrooms are Shaker style and share a spotless bathroom. The swish kitchen is a dream to cook in, filled with mod cons, and you can gather around the big dining table or out on the front terrace. The sitting room is an inviting space to unbend (comfy sofa and armchairs, lots of books, big TV and a wood-burner) after a day’s marching around delightful Edinburgh.

Local points of interest from Claudia Daventry:

Local points of interest from
Claudia Daventry:

  • Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden was established in 1670 and boasts extraordinary plants, trees and glasshouses. You're right next door: in fact, your kitchen window gives right onto the Botanic nursery: a private view.
  • The apartment is in a quiet residential neighbourhood just a stone's throw from Inverleith Park and the neo-gothic towers of Fettes College, inspiration for J K Rowling's Hogwarts school.
  • The Botanic Apartment is at garden level -- its large windows make it bright and airy -- in an imposing sandstone villa which used to house Edinburgh College of Art.
  • Walk along the lovely Water of Leith to pick up fresh coffee and warm cinnamon buns for breakfast from Peter Ljungquist's Swedish bakery Söderberg - - or to Leith Docks to the Royal Yacht Britannia and Malt Whisky Vaults.
  • ...or stroll up to the cobbled streets of Dean Village and take in Scotland's Museums of Modern Art (i and ii). Walk 20 minutes the other way, up Broughton Street or via Stockbridge and you'll come to theatres, cinemas and Edinburgh's main shopping streets
  • Hip Stockbridge with its restaurants, bars, cafés and quirky shops is a lovely walk through parks.
