Overview

About the property

1 bedroom apartment to sleep 3 in Edinburgh's historic New Town

Designed by the architect William Playfair in the middle of the 19th century, Carlton Terrace, along with the adjacent Regent and Royal Terraces, forms part of Edinburgh's prestigious New Town district.

This comfortable one bedroom apartment within Carlton House has recently been refurbished and furnished. Situated on Carlton Terrace, one of Edinburgh's most elegant cobbled streets, this second floor apartment is in a prime location for the city centre attractions as well as its famous viewpoints such as Calton Hill & Arthur's Seat. The Royal Mile and Princes Street are both only a 10 minute walk away.

The apartment's position at the rear of the building ensures privacy, tranquillity and a south facing aspect.

Please note, this is a non smoking apartment.

Please also note that there are 2 flights of stairs to reach the apartment and there is no lift so it may not be suitable if you are elderly or have breathing difficulties.

Local Vicinity: As you walk out of the front door of Carlton House and face London Road Gardens, it is difficult to believe you are only a 5 minute walk from the vibrant restaurant and entertainment district of the East End of Edinburgh. The Playhouse Theatre which stages the latest musicals and shows is a 5 min. walk away and Harvey Nichols and John Lewis department stores are also within 5-10 mins. walk. Add another 5 mins. walk and you'll reach the shopping district of Princes Street and George Street.

Parking: Street parking is available on Carlton Terrace on a metered basis from 08:30-17:30 Mon-Fri but with max. stay 4 hours at any one time. Outside of these times, parking is free. You are virtually guaranteed to find a place right outside the property at any time.

Highly recommended apartment

  • 5 of 5

First, Mark - the owner - is a top bloke. Extremely helpful and always seems to have a minute to talk when you call up.

Second, the apartment is fantastic. All smartly furnished, very clean and spacious. And we were less than 10 minutes away from Princes street by foot. An extremely generous price for the high standard that is provided.

The description of the apartment is very accurate, and even though the third person takes the sofa bed in the front room, it never once felt cramped.

And there's a great French bakery 2 minutes walk away...but Mark'll tell you all about that when you arrive.

Highly recommended!

Quiet, charming neighborhood, easy walk to Old Town and New Town.

The flat was well appointed, with a lovely view of Arthur’s seat. All sights, restaurants and transportation are within walking distance. The owner, Mark, is gracious and accommodating. Overall an excellent experience with the flat and in Edinburgh.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not usually at a loss for words, but there are not enough glowing terms to describe our week long stay at Mark's flat. It was a perfect location for a lovely city; in fact, the flat was so comfortable and beautifully appointed that we sometimes just didn't want to leave! Mark is a perfect owner: thoughtful, kind, and with an intuitive understanding of what his guests would want and need..and the flat has it all. It's within walking distance of most attractions in a bustling city, but is a quiet and serene spot for unwinding and sleeping. We would absolutely stay there again and heartily recommend it. The only caution is the stairs, so be aware of your personal limitations. If you're going to Edinburgh, a hilly city, the stairs are good practice for your visit and the flat itself is well worth it!!

The apartment is very well equipped with quality fixtures and fittings and with everything you could possibly need. Mark was there to meet us and show us round the apartment which was nice and helpful.

My second stay in Carlton Terrace, just like falling in love all over again.

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a beautiful quiet terrace within easy walking distance of the centre of Edinburgh. The fringe festival is an amazing, exhausting unforgettable experience, heaven was coming home to the peace and beauty of the flat. Highly recommended for your first or fifth time in this fabulous city.

An authentic Edinburgh experience in a wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay in Mark’s apartment. Mark was a great host and had everything extremely well organized. The apartment is super well-equipped, very clean, and extremely comfortable. The building is a classic Edinburgh terrace building just below Calton Hill. I was able to walk to everything reasonably but still able to have a bit of peace and quiet to relax when at home in this lovely neighborhood.

Edinburgh is steeped in history and as well as providing a city break location, it is also ideally situated for excursions to the beaches and golf courses of East Lothian and Fife.

The city is famous for its Georgian architecture, its open spaces and also its festivals, notably the world's largest arts festival in August and Hogmanay at New Year. The cosmopolitan feel of the city owes its thanks to its foreign visitors, university students and of course the local residents.

A walking tour of Edinburgh's architectural highlights starts on your doorstep and should go on to include the Royal Mile and the Scottish Parliament which are both within a very short distance.

Calton Hill, situated just behind Carlton Terrace is a must for any visit to Edinburgh as it offers fine views of the city and across to Fife and East Lothian. Holyrood Park with Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags are also within easy walking distance and here it is easy to forget you are in a city at all.
