NEWLY AVAILABLE - STUNNING APARTMENT SUPERB CITY CENTRE LOCATION

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in New Town

Sleeps 4. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

This is a unique one bedroom apartment in a historic and quietly situated building one minute from Princes Street. It has 46 Tripadvisor reviews all with 5 star excellent ratings. It has also been featured in a Sunday newspaper interiors magazine. The building is protected by a category A classification, the highest grade of protection by Historic Scotland. The accommodation is self contained on the raised ground floor level of the owners townhouse. We are therefore nearby so shall meet you and settle you in to the accommodation and are available should you wish any help or advice during your stay.

The apartment has a stunning 28 foot long bow ended drawing room, fully equipped kitchen and utility room, bedroom with the option of a 6 foot double or two single beds and bathroom which has a bath with shower over.

The property is set up to be a home from home with the intention that you can bring only the luggage you would need if you were booked in to a hotel. Soap, shampoo, body wash and paper are provided in the bathroom. The kitchen has teas, coffees, hot chocolate, sugar, salt, pepper, cereals and cooking oil. The fridge will be stocked with bread, milk, butter, jam, biscuits, fruit and eggs to welcome you. There is a supermarket just a few minutes walk away on Shandwick Place for stocking up on other items. There are also many excellent restaurants close by

The accommodation is arranged as follows. The apartment is approached from the street via the front step which forms a bridge over the basement area. You enter through double doors into the shared entrance hall then take your private door into the apartment Drawing Room with double windows facing the cobbled street and the rear gardens of Charlotte Square. This room is 28 foot long with a bow end, wood panelling, working shutters and a large black marble fireplace with an open gas fire. The furniture is a mix of antique and modern with two huge leather sofas (one converts to a double bed), a desk/work area with a wealth of information for your stay, large screen TV, DVD player and Hi-Fi. Original oil painting, fresh flowers and plants add a finishing touch.

A concealed (jib) door leads to the inner hall. The bedroom at the back of the building has a large window overlooking gardens and with working shutters. The wall decorations are hand painted. There is a super king size (6 foot wide) bed which can be converted to two single beds (please give your preference when booking). Pillows and duvets are non allergenic and the bedding is pure cotton for your comfort. There is ample storage space in the antique wardrobe and drawer unit.

A travel cot/crib and high chair can be provided on request.

The kitchen also overlooks the rear gardens with a table for four at the window. This is also a good place to work on your laptop with the free wifi. It is equipped with electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle, coffee maker, toaster and ironing facilities. There is also a utility room with a washer dryer.

The bathroom has a bath with shower over and is supplied with cotton towel sets and toiletries.

In the event of cancellation I shall try to re let and refund minus a £50.00 charge. If I cannot re let the terms are -

More than 30 days prior to arrival: 25% of Rental

Less than 30 days prior to arrival: 100% of Rental

If I have to cancel for reasons beyond my control a full refund will be given. I cannot be held responsible for consequential loss.

Fabulous apartment, wonderful location, great host

  • 5 out of 5
What a find! It was fantastic to experience living in such grand surroundings. The location is brilliant, a minute from Princes Street.
Lots of good restaurants nearby. So central yet all we could hear when we woke in the morning was birdsong. The apartment was huge but comfortable, very clean, well equipped and with many extras such as food supplies to get us started. Diane was a great host, meeting us and providing lots of local information. She was always available if we had any questions. We cannot wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. I am pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. I just love living in this part of Edinburgh. Walk out of the front door and turn right and you will find culture, history, restaurants and shopping. Turn left for architecture and peaceful riverside walks!

I look forward to your return.

Best Wishes,
Diane.

The apartment is in the elegant Georgian New Town in a cul de sac off Charlotte Square which is in City Centre adjacent to Princes Street. It is within easy walking distance of most of the attractions and with good transport links. There are bus stops, a Taxi Rank, Airport Bus stops and a Tram Halt all within a few minutes walk. Both Waverley and Haymarket Railway Stations are within walking distance too. A City Tour Bus can be boarded in Charlotte Square.

While the property is quietly situated there are pubs, clubs and restaurants close by. Just a few minutes away on Shandwick Place there are three late opening supermarkets (Sainsbury, Morrisons and Co-op). The Edinburgh Farmers Market takes place on Saturday mornings in nearby Castle Terrace.

Charlotte Square hosts the Book Festival during August and nearby are the Lyceum, Traverse, Kings and Usher Hall theatres, Churches, The Filmhouse and Odeon Cinema.
