This charming 2 bedroom apartment is situated on the first floor of a Georgian building in Edinburgh's celebrated New Town.

The property is part of a quiet, family-friendly block and provides an ideal base from which to explore the most attractive features of Edinburgh.

The kitchen / living room faces the front of the apartment and has been recently refurbished to offer an attractive and convenient space with plenty of light. A comfortable leather sofa and 2 chairs are arranged around the fire place with a coal effect electric stove. In the sitting area, an old pine table with 2 chairs and a church pew makes a lovely spot in which to enjoy a meal.

The modern kitchen area is well equipped with a ceramic hob and electric oven, a microwave, toaster, dishwasher and washing machine as well as ample cookware, china cutlery and glass for those wishing to cook at home. TV / DVD and free WiFi are provided.

The Lothians region

The city of Edinburgh is a wonderful place for a break with lots of history, culture, nightlife and a wide spectrum of things to do. It is little wonder that it regularly tops charts as the favourite place in the UK for traavellers to visit.

Attractions range from Edinburgh Castle to the Royal Yacht Britannia, and with events such as the world-famous Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe, you are guaranteed a great time during your visit.

Edinburgh's greatest advantage is the compact city centre which allows you to walk to virtually all of its major attractions, taking in the atmosphere as you stroll along the historic streets. Yet, even in the heart of the city, wide green spaces are close by including Princes Street Gardens, within which the iconic Edinburgh Castle proudly sits.


Edinburgh's historic New Town is certainly not 'new'. Building began in 1765 and in the years that followed it became known throughout the world as a masterpiece of city planning. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but remains a thriving community packed with houses, shops, restaurants and bars. Thankfully, the area retains almost all of the original neo-classical and Georgian period architecture.

Cumberland Street is a delightful, quiet little street in the heart of the New Town and in easy walking distance of Princes Street and the city centre, as well as the Bohemian Stockbridge area with its range of bars, restaurants, galleries, boutiques and delicatessens. The property provides an ideal base from which to explore a truly wonderful city.
