Central Edinburgh has so many historical and fascinating places to explore and it can all be done by foot from our property. Infact we advise leaving the car at home as we do not have private parking. New Town Edinburgh is a fabulous base whether visiting for the Edinburgh Festival or any other of the many other events held during the year. Open top bus rides, escorted walks, shopping and so much more can start from our doorstep. Head to nearby Leith to step on board the Royal Yacht Britannia or walk up The Mound into the Old Town along the Royal Mile leading to Edinburgh Castle - in time for the One O’clock gun. Guests are also very close to the many theatres, concert halls (including the Theatre Royal and The Usher Hall) and cinemas Edinburgh has to offer. For those seeking peace and tranquility there are nearby magnificent museums and galleries (including the Scottish and National Portrait Galleries) and the famous Botanic Gardens. Stockbridge with its antique shops, second-hand bookstores, vibrant cafe, bar and bistro atmosphere is a short walk away and it is here you can take a walk along the Water of Leith. We can provide our guests with lots of information on exploring Edinburgh City Centre and beyond and of course the many places to eat whether for lunch or an evening out. For comfort and location, Edinburgh self catering accommodation for couples does not get any better than this.

About Lynn Lambert

Edinburgh is not only my home town but also where we were married many years ago and we still have many friends and family members living in and around the city. We have two married grown up daughters who are now based in London but they try to visit Edinburgh when they can. Although we live in Norfolk, England we have excellent housekeepers (actually an aunt and uncle) who enjoy looking after our apartment and our guests. We are experienced property renters and owners and our homes are well cared for and maintained to an extremely high standard. So whether you are family, friends or new or returning guests everyone is assured of a warm welcome.

Lynn Lambert purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Lynn Lambert chose Edinburgh

We came across our apartment some years ago during one of our many visits to Edinburgh. It was for sale in a 'needs modernisation and updating' state and just around the corner from where we had our very first apartment when we were married in 1979. Being able to retrace our footsteps around Edinburgh - a great city that we love - is very special. We set about upgrading it but keeping all the wonderful Georgian details. Sadly, due to other commitments, we don't use it as much as we used to and therefore are very happy to now share it with our guests, family and friends. Its location and facilities are second to none enabling everyone who visits to relax in a gorgeous, huge apartment for the price of a small, bland hotel room.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is so spacious - the entrance hall gives you the feeling of stepping into a grand Georgian country house. We love the period details, the high ceilings and looking out into Georgian Edinburgh from the front room and doorstep. We have been able to modernise and upgrade in a sensitive way. Its location, so close to all that Edinburgh City Centre has to offer, is also a huge plus and there are also so many great restaurants and pubs nearby to suit all budgets.

How lucky we were to find this gem of a property. We couldn''t have wished for a more convienient location or comfortable home away from home. Lynn and her husband have thought of everything. We loved our stay in this beautiful Georgian apartment, highly recommend it and would love to stay there again, next time we visit from Australia.

Comfortable and elegant

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay. The flat is well appointed and the extra touches the owner provides like bread, milk, yogurt, etc really goes the extra mile. It was very cold during our stay but the apartment was nice and cozy. Stockbridge is a cute area of Edinburgh to explore with many delicious restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and pubs nearby. The flat is in a great area to explore the city. Staying in an elegant Georgian flat was like a dream! Thank you again Lynn and Stephen!

First time to the lovely city of Edinburgh and this is the most perfect apartment for two people who desire a quiet, very upscale, local experience. Near to all the sites and local transportation if desired. This apartment is "spot on"! Very clean, excellent owner communication and would highly recommend and return. Thank you, Lynn!

Large apartment near center of town/Wayfair train station

  • 5 of 5

As an American tourist traveling to Edinburgh via New Haven (US), I needed someplace easy to find first and foremost. I arrived via London on the ~5 hr train to Wayfair. Wayfair sits basically at the center of old town Edinburgh. the walk to the 11 India street is close to a mile. But it is an easy walk, and you go the hip center of town. As you go you will find places you will later eat, shop, drink, and sightsee. The walk is only about ten minutes. Use Google maps if you need directions.

The apartment is a one bedroom, and is very spacious. It is about 1300 square feet. It has two full bathrooms, a very large kitchen/dinning area, and flat screen TV viewing areas in three rooms. What makes the apartment even better is that you don't need a car. Everything from food, groceries, beer, pubs, restaurants (of most every culinary art) is located within a mile walk. And the walk can be done in any direction. It is all very, very scenic. All the major sightseeing attractions are within walking distance too. But again, there are many eateries/pubs to stop along the way.

The locals and the owners, Lynn and Stephen Lambert are very friendly. They will make sure you have everything you need. The apartment comes with good free Wi-Fi, and a stocked kitchen.

The day I left, I took a cab to the airport. This took about 20 minutes without traffic. It was about 18 pounds without tip. I would definitely come back to Edinburgh and stay at this property again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind comments. You certainly spell out just how central we are and how very easy it is to reach us from Waverley Train Station (whether you walk or jump in a taxi). The choice of restaurants close by makes it difficult for guests to decide which ones to head for (given some are only in the city for a short period of time). As you say, the airport is very easy to reach either by taxi, bus or tram. Hope you get the chance to return to Edinburgh!

Fantastic stay in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as pictured in photos- beautiful! Great location to shops, restaurants, Old Town but quiet and away from the crowds. Lynne was easy to work with and we enjoyed the treats left for us when we arrived. Also, coming from the US we had an overnight flight. It was wonderful to be able to check in early and take a quick nap before exploring our first day. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We enjoyed having you stay and to read you enjoyed our central location and welcome pack is great news. Edinburgh''s Georgian New Town is a wonderful, historical location so close to everything to make the most of your visit. We always try to accommodate early access for those coming off morning flights. Come back if you can and safe travels til then!

Perfect Stay for Adult Couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Edinburgh many times. We typically stay in new town, but this time we wanted to stay in Stockbridge. The location is a keeper. Quieter, very safe residential area ideally suited for walking to shops, restaurants and pubs.

The townhouse is exceptional. ALOT of careful thought and attention to detail has put into the Georgian flat renovation. We are staying in Edinburgh for two weeks, but only stayed in the flat for 3 nights. We then moved over to another flat in New Town. I can honestly say that I wish we were still at Lynn's flat. My husband and I were comfortable there and felt at ease and well taken care of by the host. Every need has been anticipated, welcome food/juice/milk is heaven sent after a long flight. We look forward to booking other stays in the future. Thank You for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Although central to the city, we feel very lucky to have Stockbridge on our doorstep (and we enjoy introducing the area to our guests who don"t know of it). So pleased also that you enjoyed our welcome pack! We know what its like to get off a long flight and are very happy to provide such provisions. Hope you will drop by again and you'll be very welcome. Thank you and safe travels until then!

Visitors flock to Edinburgh for its unique heritage and cosmopolitan environment and our much loved one bedroom apartment is the perfect choice for those couples looking for a special central base. Situated in a quiet position, in the very heart of the Edinburgh New Town, it is so close to everything the city has to offer. India Street is within walking distance of Edinburgh’s main entertainment, shopping and cultural facilities and all manner of restaurants and bars. It is one of Edinburgh's most gracious streets, running in a north/south direction down from Heriot Row. A short walk takes you to George Street and its wonderful shopping where you can then head to Princes Street towards The Mound, The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle also taking in Princes Street Gardens. Only a couple of minutes away, you will find the village atmosphere of Stockbridge offers a lively variety of shops (including patisserie, cheesemonger, newsagent, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, swimming and library) all near the banks of the Water of Leith. A pleasant fifteen minute walk takes you to the Royal Botanic Gardens and Inverleith Park. We are conveniently located for Waverley and Haymarket Train Stations and a short walk from St Andrew’s Bus Station. A bus from the airport gets into the city centre in under half an hour. During your stay the local public transport systems provide access to all parts of the city and beyond. Taxis are plentiful and there are even rickshaws should you wish to hitch a ride. From nearby Waverley or Haymarket Stations, inter city trains travel throughout the United Kingdom. Available from summer 13, the apartment is an ideal base for those hoping to take in all that the Edinburgh has to offer. Book with us now for your Edinburgh vacation or visit to the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe during August.
