Converted from a stable/garage property in February 2012 this property couldn't be more central allowing guests to get here by train, plane or bus and easily explore the city on foot.
The accommodation offers spacious loft living/dining/kitchen accommodation on the upper floor which is accessed by a short flight of stairs.
LIVING AREA: Relax on the comfortable sofa as you watch the wall hung Smart TV or chill out in the deep armchair in front of the French window while reading. Wireless internet provided free of charge.
DINING: A small table located beside the kitchen area window offers the opportunity to sit and re-fuel.
KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated fridge (with freezer compartment), integrated dishwasher, hob and oven.
A generous double bedroom, ensuite shower room and seperate cloakroom are situated beneath, on the ground level.
BEDROOM: The sumptous double bedroom is located on the ground floor. The large kingsize bed was chosen with your comfort in mind and the built in wardrobes offer substantial storage for your holiday outfits. An ensuite shower room is located off the bedroom. Towels provided.
Guests are welcomed by host and a supply of Finn flapjack, fresh milk and fresh orange juice, complement the stock supply of tea and coffee.
*Please note that there is a strict NO SMOKING policy within the mews*
Your mews holiday accommodation is located in the heart of Edinburgh's West End village, just around the corner from Princes Street. Haymarket rail station is a short walk away and the new tramway will speed passengers from the airport to a location just minutes from the mews accommodation.
William Street enjoys a a variety of shops, bars and cafes that will suit all holiday budgets. Further high street shops are a short walk away in Princes Street and George Street offers shops such as Anthropologie and Hollister ending with Harvey Nichols on St Andrews Square. Yet your holiday accommodation is surprisingly peaceful, allowing you to enjoy the sound of the bells of the nearby awe-inspiring St Mary's Cathedral.
We suggest.... you wander round to the iconic Brass & Copper coffee haunt where you will enjoy THE best coffee, a fantastic way to start your day from Monday to Friday. Or enjoy a wonderful weekend brunch along at Indigo Yard. Within minutes you will be standing in the shadow of the magnificent Edinburgh castle. You can choose to walk past it towards the historic Grassmarket or climb up the Mound to the Royal Mile where the castle proudly stands at one end with an easy walk down towards Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. Once you've got there you might choose to climb the iconic Arthur's Seat, a hill with an umissable view of the city. (Did you notice that there's been no talk of transport yet? Your accommodation is so central that public transport is rarely required!)
Or if you prefer to get off the beaten track turn left instead of right and wander around the New Town where you can admire the fine architecture on your way to the Modern Art Gallery. After inspiring your creativity wander along the Water of Leith towards Stockbridge - a mellow and dreamy walk that takes you to this small community buzzing with cafes, vintage clothing and artisan shops.
And if this all sounds a bit too laid back then head to George Street for an evening of high class eating and clubbing - hey if the Opal Lounge was good enough for Prince William we're thinking we might give it a visit....
We enjoyed our stay very much !! It's such a cute place, very comfortable, Karen and Colin were very helpful also Karen's homemade flapjacks are so yummy! house in new town just few min walk from princes street which u have all the shops beautiful princes park, we will definitely come back next time.
We had a lovely stay in Colin,s beautiful Mews house, great central location, very comfortable and clean. Colin gave us a brief on local restaurants, bars, coffee shop and are in general. Great hose and a lovely touch was his wife's home baking which live up to the reviews. We would definitely return to this property. Colin was a great host.
We were delighted with our mews home. Great location - close to Edinburgh castle etc, quiet, beautifully renovated , comfortable and warm. We met Colin's wife Karen who was very helpful and friendly (thanks for the muesli slice !)
Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Such a lovely place , great location close to everything and friendly owners. The fresh orange juice and muesli bars were yummy! Thanks for all the help with parking too.
Absolutely loved this apartment ! Situated in the heart of Edinburgh - even though we were only there 24 hours Colin was super friendly andgave us great advice where to eat and drink! I don't have enough space here to compliment Colin and how much we loved the flat ! His wifes flapjacks alone would be enough to come back for ! Definitely will stay here again when we come back up north !!!!!
I agree with the reviews; this is a perfect location in a lovely city. It was so quiet, yet right around the corner from everything I could have wanted. I only wish I had more time - I would definitely stay here again! Beautiful place and Colin was very easy to deal with.
Loved it! The mews is just as lovely in person as it looks in the photos. No disappointments. Very clean, comfortable, modern and plenty of space. Very quiet and peaceful, even though it's right around the corner from 3 pubs and a coffee shop, but still in a very good location for walking to the castle or getting a bus if needed. Great value! I would even recommend it to my mother in-law (and everyone else I know).
Just love it!!!!
We had a great, if brief, stay at Colin's lovely mews house. Wonderfully convenient for central Edinburgh, really quiet, comfy bed, good shower. We will be back!
Thank you, Colin. Your flat was lovely and we had a great weekend in Edinburgh!
