Walking distance to KINGS BUILDINGS and GEORGE SQUARE, perfect for visiting professor. Sept-June (dates flexible). Price will be per month, of course less than the nightly cost that is listed and a reduced monthly cost for academics affiliated with major universities. Epicurean Clerk is 150 years old but has all the modern conveniences while retaining all the original features. It has been my family home since 2001 so hopefully its look and feel reflect this. It is a extremely large for Edinburgh standards and part of a traditional building which is very central. It is full of charm and retains many original features such as 5 fireplaces, high ceilings, wood floors, hearth in the kitchen, elaborate cornices, working shutters, door bell above main door and even a small bit of the original wall paintings/stencils that were once fashionable in the capital! It is an unusually large flat which makes for a comfortable stay. There are 4 bedrooms (2 with double loft beds). It has recently been refurbished and has a modern kitchen with many appliances, (there is NOT a tumble dryer but instead a traditional drying rack on a pully system). A modern shower room with toilet and a further WC. The bedding is very comfortable as well with nice mattresses, great new pillows and comfy duvets. It is in the center of Edinburgh so all of the tourist attractions are a short walk and the country side is just minutes away. The flat is on a main road so catching a bus to anywhere in the city is straight forward. And because it is so central all of the urban conveniences are very close by. Within 2 blocks from the flat there are convenient marts, a Peckhams delicatessen (Edinburgh's finest), and many restaurants to choose from; Turkish, Indian, Thai, Argentinian, Chinese, Italian, sandwich bars, Metropole Cafe, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, many pubs and bars, a vintage record shop, a vintage clothing shop (Armstrongs), Queens Hall concert venue, Jan de Vries health store, pharmacy, banks (meaning 2 ATMs very close), Blockbuster, plus much more. The neighborhood is beautiful, surrounded by the meadows and Holyrood park and is very laid back in nature.
Review by Tim, "If you like the photos, you'll love the place. Fun, comfy, private, clean, quiet, everything you need and plenty more you hadn't thought of. Books, games, art, brilliantly equipped kitchen. The kids' rooms are a delight. Our daughter spent the first hour lost in hers reading books (her favourite was the one about the farting dog) and didn't have to be asked to climb up into the 'cloud' at bedtime. Pub serving moules et frites and live music directly across the road. Within 30m a good deli and a triathlon shop that makes excellent coffee (better than the deli). 10 min brisk walk to The Royal Mile or catch the bus out front. We feel cool just for having stayed there"
