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.

Wonderful Georgian flat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful flat. It is impeccably furnished and spotlessly clean. Our host and hostess left provisions in the fridge and a lovely bottle of wine to welcome us. We will definitely be back!

This apartment was fabulous. Everything was top quality from the furnishing to the scotch .

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most elegant apartments we have ever stayed at. The owners provided great suggestions for restaurants and tourist attractions. The location is an easy walk to Old Edinburgh and a charming area called Stockbridge. I highly recommend this lovely Tudor apartment.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lynn & Stephen's apartment is simply stunning. It is spacious and beautifully decorated. It is in a great location where it's peaceful but near to good restaurants and is a short walk to George and Prince's streets. Lynn's attention to detail is well beyond expectations. We were provided with all the provisions you require when you first arrive, and then some! Four types of instant coffee plus additional pods for the coffee machine gives you the idea. Very many thanks for making my partner Steve's birthday weekend really special.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Lynn's apartment goes above and beyond the average rental. It is spotless, and stocked with all provisions and toiletries needed for a long weekends stay. It is an easy walk to stockbridge/New town, but overall we were able to explore the whole city no problem from our location. So much information regarding local food and recommendations. Seriously I can't rave enough on how amazing this apartment and our stay in Edinburgh was. Thank you again so much!!!

Beautiful, elegant, very well equipped, very comfortable, very good location, excellent host.

  • 5 of 5

The name of the apartment represents perfectly about it. It is very beautiful and comfortable. We feel like , we are staying in the boutique hotel, but we are the only guests. The living room is grand. The island kitchen, high quality equipment and the dining area are so impressive. The bedroom and bathroom are also nice and comfortable. Overall, the interior decoration is like being seen in the world leading architectural magazine. Most of all, Lynn and Stephen are very kind, full of hospitality and caring. We would love to stay here again.

Great apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been renting apartments/houses on line for more than 10 years, both in the US and in Europe. By far, this is the best rental yet. It was huge, immaculate, and extremely well equipped. No issues at all. Fabulous location. We walked everywhere. Bed was comfortable, cereal, eggs, bread, milk and OJ in the kitchen. Plenty of storage, beautifully decorated. I'd love to live in this apartment, although a long commute to my job in Massachusetts. Would rent this apartment again in a minute!!

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.
