"Fabulous property & perfect location."

Mitchells is perfectly located for those wanting a weekend in Edinburgh - just a 5 minute walk from Princes Street and perfectly located for shops, pubs, restaurants and larger venues for example Murrayfield.

Christine & Graham have thought of everything even providing a welcome hamper and a stock fridge.

The only downside (and this is not about the property, more the location) is that it is situated next to a cobbled road, so the noise from passing traffic is exacerbated because of the cobbles, so my only word of advice would be to take earplugs.

This is a gorgeous property - well located for Edinburgh. Lovely!
