Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Dalry
'Near Holyrood Palace / Royal Mile with FREE parking/Wifi' is a fully owner managed/maintained, spacious, 2 bedroom apartment close to the Heart of Historical Edinburgh (see our map “photo”). The flat benefits from free WiFi and free on street parking, is just moments from the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's residence in Edinburgh) and is just 5 mins (off road) walk from the foot of Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile.
This modern central Edinburgh apartment occupies a quiet position on the first floor of a recently built (1997) development, situated near the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac that provides pedestrian access to Holyrood Park. There is a Secure (buzzer) Entry System with an intercom providing additional security, while the stairwell & surrounding gardens are well lit & kept clean / in good repair by paid “factors.”
The apartment is situated pretty much as close as you can get to all the historic Old Town sites and visitor attractions in Edinburgh with FREE on street parking. Most of central Edinburgh is unfortunately (expensive!) metered parking zones.
The apartment comprises an attractive, bright (south west facing), living room with plenty of room to kick back and relax after a hard day out seeing the sights or attending a work event. The living room has a large sofa bed, which pulls out very easily to form a good sized (6Ft 8') double bed, a separate couch and comfortable chairs.

The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, a cooker, washing machine, dish washer, fridge, freezer & microwave. There is also a dining table which comfortably seats 6. In the vicinity there are a number of smaller shops as well as (7mins walk) the substantial Meadowbank shopping centre that includes a Sainsburys, TK Maxx and other outlets. However, for those that prefer to dine out, cosmopolitan Edinburgh is renowned for its large selection of restaurants, with a variety of restaurants / pubs nearby.
There is a spacious master bedroom with a King sized bed & walk through wardrobe to a recently installed en-suite shower room (including toilet & basin). The second bedroom is similarly large with 2 single beds and built in double wardrobes. The bath room, which has recently been modernised, comprises of a toilet, wash hand basin & bath with modern shower / shower screen.
A pleasant 5 minute walk through Holyrood Park takes you to the buses at the foot of the Royal Mile (including an Airport Link / tourist bus stop) or alternatively to London Road, a major access road, whose numerous bus routes provide access to the main tourist and shopping destinations.
Whenever possible, guests will be welcomed personally at the property for the handover of keys. As you would expect, the price includes crisp fresh linen, bath and hand towels.

About Eleanor Paterson
I was born in Edinburgh and have been a life long resident of this beautiful city. I worked for the Scottish Government for many years, in roles ranging from Policy Development to briefing Ministers. However, I have recently begun to manage a small property portfolio of Holiday Lets. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have travelled widely (30+ countries and all Continents) by plane/car/bike/bus/caravan and have stayed in a variety of accommodation types ranging from Hotels / Holiday Lets / tents / cabins. Which, all in all, I believe makes me pretty sensitive to the holiday experience! My properties are fully owner managed / maintained meaning that I PERSONALLY, 1) respond to each and every email 2) ensure our welcome literature is up to date 3) as a local resident, I’m on hand to answer your questions ........ ........ In short this means I’m fully incentivised to ensure that you have a great time and (hopefully) come back again and/or recommend my flats to your friends!
