The apartment has a unique character and style, relaxing and social that makes you feel comfortable the minute you walk through the door. Decorated and furnished to a high standard with antiques and handmade furniture, very unique and handmade by the owners.
The apartment includes a wood burning stove, wall mounted electric heaters and everything you should need to make your stay a memorable one.
The pictures I hope speak for themselves. It's in the very centre of Edinburgh, 5 minutes from Princess Street, the Castle and all that is Edinburgh. Its 10 minutes by public transport to Leith and the Shore and a days trip to the beaches or hills that surround (URL HIDDEN) base yourself here for a week is a luxury, so much to do and see.
That's perhaps why there is no television, no landline phone, no WiFi. There are books, music, games, paints, blankets and things to use to make good food and have a good time whilst staying at any time of the year. If you are the creative types its an ideal space.
For everything else its on your doorstep or at least down eight flights of stairs.Yes eight, 147 stone spiral steps with a wooden handrail to the top, steep at first but once you get going it gets easier. Honest.
Due to the nature of the stairs its not suitable for those with severe mobility issues. It is however clean, well lit with space to rest should you need a break.
We will generally help carry luggage up if we are available though it is best to travel light!
This is the place for the adventurers, climbers, walkers and travellers. In the winter its wild and atmospheric, time for jumpers, blankets, good food and the wood-burning stove. This is not a "could be anywhere flat"
If there is anything we can do to make your stay a perfect one, we will. We provide good food to start your breakfast and a well stocked larder of provisions for cooking.
Often described as "beautiful", "unique" and "amazing views"
