About the property

2-bedroom apartment for four with fabulous views across Edinburgh

Learmonth Court is an elegant art deco mansion, set back in a quiet private road within landscaped gardens. It has the security of a resident caretaker and has lifts to the apartment, which enjoys amazing views from its 4th floor location. Perfectly situated, it is a 15 minute walk to the start of the attractions at the West End of Princes Street, a 5 minute walk to the local Waitrose supermarket and a 2 minute walk to the local restaurant and bar. It is regarded as a home from home by our guests who have rated it 5 stars and have come back year after year, loving the comfy beds, the sofas dressed with plump cushions and throws, and the well equipped kitchen. Our guests tell us how they love sitting at the bay window after a hard day's sightseeing, enjoying the view over the roof tops to the stunning Fettes college and beyond to the Kingdom of Fife. Then, enjoying a peaceful night sleep in one of the 2 double bedrooms (one of which can be made up as a twin) with its fresh white bed linen. We have now completely renovated the bathroom and kitchen, which features a twin oven and ceramic hob, along with integrated fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. Overall, the apartment is furnished to a high standard with wireless broadband just another feature in the all inclusive price shown. All-in-all, you will find the apartment very comfortable - a real home from home.

We welcome you and we are certain you will enjoy your stay!

Excellent Edinburgh Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is in a great location just a few minuted walk to Edinburgh's West End. It is beautifully furnished, and the owners could not be more helpful.

We had a very enjoyable week taking in the fabulous Jazz Festival. A big plus to us was being able to park right outside.

Spacious & well equipped and easy access to the sights

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in this comfortable, light and spacious apartment. Had everything we needed and the owners were very helpful and accommodating. The location was great as it is within walking distance to the main areas yet away from the hustle & bustle of the city. Handy to have a Waitrose just a few minutes walk away as well. Shame we were not staying for longer as we felt really at home and there were still things in Edinburgh that we would like to have done. If we return would definitely stay at this apartment again. Would recommend to others without a doubt.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vacation properties in European cities. Euan's place is one of the nicest, most well equipped apartments. It is spacious and spotless. Large windows with lovely views. Kitchen is beautifully updated and remarkably well equipped with anything a gourmet cook would need to dine at home at the big beautiful dining table. Bathroom is clean and modern. Wifi and TV were excellent. The apartment is totally updated yet retains much Scottish charm.

The location is a very quiet, cul-de-sac on a lovely street in a pretty residential neighborhood. It is only a few minutes' walk to the commercial center of Stockbridge which is a beautiful village in itself, but also a short walk to the City Center.

Euan is a responsive, considerate, very hospitable landlord. We didn't meet him in person as we had no complaints or problems, but he made it clear that he was always available if needed, and did check in by email to ask if all was well.

I can highly recommend this vacation home.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had a wonderful two night stay at this lovely apartment.

The apartment is spacious, well decorated, clean and really comfortable - like a home from home.

It is located approx. 1.5 miles from Edinburgh Centre with excellent bus services within a 5 minute walk from the apartment and just £6 in a taxi.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and I will certainly be booking again on my next visit to Edinburgh.

This is a gorgeous apartment in Edinburgh, its near stockbridge and a nice 10 min walk to the centre.

The apartment was clear, secure and had all the items that you would require for a good stay, as well as great views. Avril the owner, left lots of useful tips on places nearby to eat and drink along with other local info.

We only stayed one night, but I would not hesitate to book another break to stay longer. Great Apartment!

The property (EH4 1PD) is located off Queensferry Road, near to the Dean Bridge. This places it right on the edge of the New Town and a short walk to Princes Street and on to the Castle, Old Town, and the Royal Mile. The Dean Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art are only 5 Minutes walk and the picturesque former village of Stockbridge is only 10 minutes walk. Murrayfield Stadium is also within walking distance or a short taxi ride. Queensferry Road is the main route out of Edinburgh to the Forth Road Bridge and on to the Highlands of Scotland. There are also excellent bus links 100 metres from the apartment and Waverley and Haymarket rail stations are both a short bus or taxi trip. Edinburgh Airport is only 15 minutes away by taxi.
