The Flat at 10a, Stockbridge
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This charming Georgian garden apartment is a relaxing home from home retreat only 10/15 minutes' walk from the excitement of central Edinburgh. This property, with a bedroom overlooking the patio and garden (shared with the owners), was recently extensively refurbished and comes complete with a private entrance and all modern amenities.
The warmth of the kitchen/dining/living room will make you feel completely at home in cultural and historic Edinburgh. Despite the tranquility of Dean Terrace itself, the bohemian Stockbridge area is home to a sparkling community of unique shops, cafes and pubs. There is an excellent market 2 minutes' walk from the flat each Sunday from 10-5, selling locally produced food and gifts.
The Flat at 10a is opposite the Water of Leith, a lovely walkway connecting many areas of the city, including the Gallery of Modern Art and the Dean Gallery, Inverleith Park and the Botanic Gardens are a ten-minute walk away, and guests have access to the private Dean Gardens at the top of the street.
Please note that access to the flat is via a short flight of steps, making it unsuitable for those with mobility problems. The flat is only available from March to November.

The Lothians region
The ancient capital city of Scotland and the seat of its Parliament, Edinburgh has a rich and diverse character, landscape and architecture. With its cobbled streets, historic buildings, elegant squares and gardens and world-class galleries and museums, it is a city easy to fall in love with. A cosmopolitan city, with first-class shops, restaurants and clubs, Edinburgh is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, a City of Literature and home to the largest arts festivals in the world every summer.
Surprisingly close to Edinburgh's busy centre ,peace and quiet can be found in Holyrood Park, a vast area of wide open space, small glens and lochs. A walk up Arthur's Seat (250m) , an extinct volcano in the park, provides spectacular views of the city
Stockbridge is an ideal place to unwind after your sightseeing. With its village atmosphere and individual shops (including boutique, art shops, butcher, cheese-monger and delicatessens) it has everything you could want. One of Edinburgh's prettiest streets(Ann Street) is at the end of Dean Terrace and nearby Inverleith Park and the Botanical Gardens are wonderful places to relax.
Tennis courts and Victorian swimming baths are nearby and Murrayfield golf club is a 10 minute drive from the apartment. Neil and Barbara wil be happy to advise on cycle routes and golf courses.

Wonderful Stockbridge neighbourhood - shops, cafes and restaurants galore nearby. Super flat - quiet, very clean and comfortable, kitchen brilliantly equipped, excellent bed and shower, and extremely kind owners - greatly appreciated welcome package of goodies and loads of information available on Edinburgh. Access to garden and terrace to relax if you do have any time to spare in this vibrant city!

"The perfect place to stay in Edinburgh"
This flat is beautifully appointed, very well equipped and a joy to stay in. A generous welcome pack, a vase of freshly-picked flowers, extensive local information and a friendly welcome from Barbara - all we needed to make us feel at home. Barbara and Neil have thought of everything to help their guests - mobile phone, notebook PC, generous provisions, recommended shops and eating places, bus routes - these little considerations make all the difference.
The flat is located in the delightful Stockbridge, one of Edinburgh's most special areas. Lovely walks, convenient shops and buses into town, good restaurants close by. Very peaceful at night; we slept well in the comfortable bed.
We wholeheartedly recomment the flat at 10A.
