Description

Fabulous large victorian double upper apartment located in the heart of the Newington, whose parks / cafes / bars and shops make it a favourite district of Edinburgh. The large bright property is ideally placed to enjoy the best of Edinburgh's attractions with the minimum of hassle. Many of the main venues / attractions are a stone's throw from the flat, and others, like the castle, Royal Mile and the main shopping areas are easily reached on foot in less than 20 minutes or around 10 minutes by using the frequent bus service which stops outside the door and takes you directly into the heart of the central shopping area.

The apartment has been redecorated over the last few years, and although it has been tastefully modernised it retains many attractive period features, such as original fireplaces, working shutters, ornamental balconies and decorative cornicing. It is a perfect for larger families / groups who are looking for a base from which to explore the city.

The Scotland region

Edinburgh is one of Europe's top tourist destinations with the annual Festival and Hogmanay Party being major attractions for visitors from all around the world. Major visitor attractions include the castle, Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Zoo (currently home to the only two giant pandas in the UK). The area is a golfing paradise with many local courses including Muirfield, home of the 2013 Open Championship. Slightly further afield are the famous Old Course, St. Andrews and Gleneagles (venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup), both around a 1 hour drive from the city.

Central Scotland/Strathclyde

Newington is a hugely popular neighbourhood to the south of the city centre, served by excellent local amenities including a wide range of everyday and speciality shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Many festival fringe venues are located within walking distance. Leisure facilities are plentiful with the Royal Commonwealth Pool and the green open spaces of the Meadows, Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Park, and several golf courses close by. Local cultural venues include Festival Theatre, Queen's Hall and the Scottish Parliament with many more, such as the castle and Royal Mile just a short walk away.

“Memories Were Made Here”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2016

We appreciated that we were able to move in and make a cup of tea - milk/tea/coffee & shortbread were provided by the owners. The kitchen was well stocked, never did we run short of a plate, glass or fork, all the appliances in good working order. Our group included two 70+ grandparents, fortunately, fit seniors who were able to tackle the stairs up/down to the apartment. This spacious apartment was ideal for our stay in Edinburgh.

“Super apartment!”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2016

From first contact with the owners, everything went well with our booking. Judy was very responsive, helpful and friendly. On arrival, we were met by the lovely Karen, the property manager. She gave us a warm welcome, ensured we were all comfortable in the flat, and pointed out that there were teabags, coffee, dishwasher tablets, etc that we could help ourselves to. In short, we were well set up for our stay! Karen even gave two of us a lift into town on the way to her next appointment. The apartment itself was really lovely - very tastefully decorated and furnished, and with lots of space for a large group. The photos are a true reflection of what's on offer. We particularly liked the open-plan kitchen and living area, as this was so sociable. There were lots of stairs up to the front door - not a problem for any of our group, but worth bearing in mind. Location-wise we found it perfect - close to many festival venues, but away from the very busy streets. There were lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby, as well as two supermarkets for stocking up on food and drink. (Just bear in mind that alcohol can't be sold in any off-licence setting after 10pm in Scotland. That caught us out!) The apartment is also quite close to Arthur's Seat, so it's handy for those wanting to get up there for the wonderful views. Overall, we can highly recommend this apartment and have already booked to return next year!
