About the property

10 min. walk from Edinburgh city centre, very peaceful, sleeps 4, free sec park

Ground floor lovely warehouse conversion apartment in three storey red brick building with private parking. Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Unique space to spend a holiday or business trip. In the heart of Stockbridge, yet tucked quietly behind all the hustle and bustle of a vibrant city centre location. A lovely conversion to modern living flats. Private patio. 10mins walk to centre. Double bed + double sofa bed (in lounge) to sleep up to 4. With the high ceilings and very large doors/windows it makes this flat very bright and airy. Gated secure courtyard. From £100 low to £200 high.

We try to allow guests as early an entry time as we can, which is from 3pm in the afternoon. To do this we must ask that you leave by 10.30am in the morning on the day of departure - this allows our cleaners to come in by 11 am and make the apartment clean and homely for arrivals. If we can accommodate changes to these times, we will do so, but will tend to be last minute depending on bookings.

About Mike Hislop

Mike and Doreen Hislop have lived in Edinburgh all our lives, and are very proud of our city. Nearing retirement we have bought Patriothall for what eventually will be our Edinburgh base, as we plan to retire to the west coast of Scotland.

We have 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren all living in Edinburgh. We stay only 10 minutes from the apartment so are always on hand for any issues or just advice.

Mike Hislop purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Mike Hislop chose Stockbridge

When we were looking for a property, we wanted something just a bit 'different', and when this apartment came up for sale we just snapped it up.

There is a lot of history, as it was built around 1900 for the Cooperative Society, and was used as their stables and workshops, where all the milk carts left for their daily rounds - hence the very unusual cobbled stoned courtyard, which is now the secure car park for the building.

The property is a listed building, and was converted into very tasteful apartments, in the 1980's.

What we loved was obviously the inside of the apartment, with its large industrial windows and light. But probably most, was the lovely patio area at the back and the free secure parking - in the centre of Edinburgh, both are like gold-dust!!

What makes this apartment unique

10 minutes walk from the Castle and centre of Edinburgh

A real local village with everything - shops, restaurants, coffee houses, pubs, food markets etc etc

Secure Parking

Lovely Patio area, for the very warm Edinburgh summers!! ( I joke)

Ground floor, and disabled access

Well maintained surroundings

Listed building status

Water of Leith just opposite

Excellent Edinburgh Escape Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental in a very up and coming part of the "real Edinburgh." Away from the crush and commercialism of Princess Street but very accessible by bus to all the usual tourist spots. Located in a real neighborhood filled with great coffee shops, restaurants, smallish interesting stores, pubs with local drinks and live music spilling out on to the streets busy with family life. Great stay. Thank you.

Wonderful flat! Perfect location! Gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the past 4 months at Patriothall, so that I could spend quality time with family and friends in Scotland, instead of my usual short visits from the US. First of all, the flat is beautifully appointed, well laid out and well equipped. The large windows give the flat a light, airy feel which is unusual to find in the city. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and updated, and the entire flat is clean and bright. I did have a friend visit who slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room and reported it was very comfortable. Ample linens and towels are readily available.

The location could not be more perfect. The flat is set back in a courtyard and is therefore very quiet (helpful for a good night’s sleep). You would not know you were in the heart of the city. However, once you walk a few steps out to the main street you are in the hub of it all. There are great restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, wine bars and shops at your door step. Stockbridge has a village-like feel but is a short (12-minute picturesque walk) to George St./Princes St. and the heart of the city center. Edinburgh is such a walkable city, and this is a great location to explore from. There is also easy access to buses and taxis, if you need them.

Mike and Doreen are the loveliest people. They are kind, thoughtful, friendly and easy to work with. They will ensure you have the perfect stay.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Patriothall. I would highly recommend it to anyone and fully intend to stay here again.

Thank you again Mike and Doreen!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review Alison, and really appreciated. We always love hearing when our guests have had a positive experience in Edinburgh and Patriothall. It was a new experience to let for a long period as we are normally a short let property, but you were such a lovely guest that it made it all very easy. Hope to see you again soon. Mike and Doreen

A comfortable stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable and well maintained property which was ideal for our trip to the Edinburgh fringe festival. We could walk to everything and despite being so near the centre of town it was in a really quiet area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. The location is ideal for the festival and any visit to city centre. The free parking beside the apartment means you can just leave the car and walk everywhere. Haste ye back!!

Quiet, convenient base for the Fringe

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a quiet residential area but very convenient to the center. We spent three days at the Fringe, and the apartment was an easy 15-30 minute walk to most venues. It was nice to come back and escape the crowds, too. Mike was very accommodating and easy to work with. Great place!

Owner's Response: Thanks Margaret. I think one of the big bonuses of Patriothall, as you say, is that it is so central yet very quiet at night. Glad you enjoyed. Haste ye back!!
