Built in the mid-1800s, and refurbished in 2012, Cumberland Street is an elegant main door ground floor listed apartment situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s world famous New Town. You are surrounded by stunning Georgian architecture and are just minutes’ walk away from the vibrant city centre and its attractions, including Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. The restaurants and bars of Stockbridge are also within easy reach on foot.
The Cumberland Bar, which is frequently mentioned in the 44 Scotland Street novels, is a few steps away at the end of the road. Local shopping is a few minutes’ walk up Dundas Street. The apartment is very spacious, combining modern benefits, including a recently installed kitchen and bathroom, whilst retaining many of its original features such as the traditional sash windows with operating shutters, “Edinburgh presses” and ornate cornicing. Period furniture throughout combines tastefully with the apartment's heritage.
Gas fired central heating makes the apartment cosy throughout. Free WiFi is also provided, as is Sky (satellite) TV. We also have Amazon Video and Netflix, both of which offer a wide variety of movies and TV shows on demand.
The apartment sleeps six and there are three large bedrooms, one kingsize, one double and one twin. The twin room also doubles as a library with a floor to ceiling bookcase.
The large kitchen includes a breakfast table but the main dining table is - traditional for Georgian properties in Edinburgh - in the substantial dining hall. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect, including a coffee maker.
In addition to the main bathroom, there is also a separate shower room.
