'The Old Bakehouse' is a converted basement in a terrace that was designed by architect Robert Brown in 1825 as part of Edinburgh's New Town. It has two spacious bedrooms, a beautiful sitting/dining room which looks out on to a quiet garden, and a fully fitted kitchen and shower room. The apartment was rennovated in 2015 and is situated in the cosmopolitan Stockbridge area near the Water of Leith and on the edge of the New Town.
** Please note that the ceilings in the flat are quite low and people over six feet tall will not be able to move around comfortably in some of the rooms **
The sitting room has a three-piece suite, freeview TV and a DVD player and the adjoining dining area seats four people. This room opens directly onto the communal garden.
The bedrooms are spacious and each one contains a double bed and ample cupboard and wardrobe space. Both beds have electric blankets.
The shower room is newly refurbished and has shower, basin, toilet and a large heated towel rail.
The kitchen is also newly refurbished and contains a fridge/freezer, microwave, combined electric oven and grill, ceramic hob and dishwasher.
The apartment has gas central heating and hot water on demand. There is also a washing machine, folding cot for toddlers or babies and a high chair. There is also wireless internet access.
All bed linen and towels are provided for guests, together with a welcome-pack consisting of hot and cold drinks and freshly baked cakes or cookies.
I always try to be at the apartment to welcome guests personally on arrival and on the rare occasions when I am not available guests can obtain the keys via a key-safe facility.
