The Edinburgh region

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and one of Europe's most beautiful capital cities. This makes it a great destination for a city break at any time of year.

With so much history and it's amazing backdrop to the events throughout it really is a city to see time and time again.

New Town

New Town was built in the mid-to-late 18th Century, in response to overcrowding in what is now known as the Old Town. Edinburgh’s New Town is elegant with it's Georgian architecture which is neo-classical in style with large sash windows and high ceilings producing quite spacious houses.

The New Town is home to the National Gallery of Scotland, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Edinburgh's main shoping streets including Princes Street, George Street and Harvey Nichols off St Andrew's Square.

During the Festival you can enjoy easy access to many of the venues and galleries nearby - ‘The Stand Comedy Club’, Jools Holland's Jam House, The Playhouse and many more are also nearby.

Edinburgh is easy to get to by air, train, bus or car and Forth Street is well positioned. The Airlink Bus Service stops only a short walk away, Waverley Train and St Andrews Bus stations are also within easy reach of the apartment and taxis are always available too, you can hail them on the street as well as at main taxi ranks dotted around the city.

"Superb apartment in the cosy corner of Edinburgh"

Or should I say Edinbuurraa as the Scots pronounce their capital. We rented the apartment in Forth Street one week in April-May 2015 and it was a great delight. The combination of an apartment with all you need and the position in the middle of the vibrant environment in busy Brouthon Street was top class. Just around the corner there are small shops, restaurants, cafés, delis, pubs, supermarket etc. And in 10 minutes by foot you are in New Town and 10 minutes more in amazing Old Town. We went to everything, why not, walking is damned good exercise and by walking one has the possibility to really study the archictural quailities of this well preserved city. We even went to the Museum of Modern Art in pouring horizontal rain, a stroll about 40 minutes. The apartment has anything one needs to have a pleasant stay. We particular liked the cosy kitchen where we spent most of our time under the stay. Not by cooking because we hardly used the normal kitchen facilities. There's to many good eating places just around the corner. But the kitchen is cosy with a nice bench where you can sit and read or use the extremely well functioning wifi. And if you have a problem (and we did with the hot water) the owner Wanda is quick to send somebody to fix it. Even on a Saturday afternoon. Our absolutely best recommandations for the Forth Street apartment.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I really do appreciate it as it means a lot. Wishing you well and kindest regards, Wanda

"Bright, high ceilings, immaculate, central!"

My friend and I visited the Forth Street Apartment over the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Weekend as we were both taking part. The flat is very central so it was perfect for us and convenient as we walked around everywhere. The whole flat is immaculate and so clean but the simple and stylish décor enhances the neat, tidy, spacious flat. Wanda is so friendly and easy to reach. Any question we had Wanda responded immediately. I really could have asked for more and I will definitely be staying here when I next visit Edinburgh.

"Brilliantly located, gorgeous apartment with all you need"

The service from the owner is excellent, really efficient and extremely helpful. Good price too. The apartment is stunning, tall ceilings, decorated really beautifully, really comfortable sitting room and bedroom, plus everything you need in the kitchen. Its located just off Broughton Street which has plenty of places for drinking and eating and is just around the corner from the shopping centre with John Lewis and Harvey Nics. 5 - 10 minute walk takes you to Princes Street, so everything really is on the doorstep. We walked down the Leith Road to a restaurant one night which was only a few minutes walk too. It really felt like a lovely home, very welcoming, everything you could need.

"Great location and very convienient to central Edinburgh"

We stayed for a week while attending my daughters wedding. Very close to main attactions and we walked to most places. Great bars restaurants Tescos butchers so you have many options. The house is very well appointed with everything you could wish for. The front room is light and great if the sun shines. The light sofa and carpets require you to remove boots and watch dirt when it rains or snows. Qe enjoyed our yime there and would return if available.

"Top spot for Edinburgh"

We stayed for a week of the 2012 Fringe, and this proved a great base for exploring edinburgh with one teenager who was with us, who slept on the comfortable sofabed. We were able to walk to the myriad of fringe events. Good eating nearby, and every facility in the flat, which is well fitted out.

"Beautiful home-from-home; baby/toddler-friendly."

After searching for 'luxury toddler-friendly apartment+Edinburgh New Town', the Forth Street property popped up with a handful of others. It immediately appealed with its beautiful pale decor and stylish furnishings and the fact it was set up with young children in mind - baby bath, high chair, travel cot, socket protectors, feeding bowls/cutlery etc etc. Whether you have a little one or not, the owners have thought of everything and it really felt like a lovely spacious home-from-home in the heart of Edinburgh's East End. The bedroom is bijoux but ample as it's just for sleeping in and is more than compensated for by the huge, light-filled sitting room. The (separate) kitchen is charming and like the rest of the flat, very well equipped. Owner could not have been more helpful with answering my questions and setting up the flat for us. All in all, a very comfortable and lovely place to stay.

Thank you so much for your review and I've ordered some protectors for the table top, I know my little one will be grateful for your advice. The bed is an orthopedic mattress so it's well sprung and quite firm. I'm so pleased you had a lovely time and wishing you all the best. Wanda

"Comfortable centrally located flat decorated with style"

This flat is ideally situated within walking distance to everything you need. The flat is immaculate and has been decorated along simple yet classic lines. The bed was so comfortable I did not want to get out of it!!. All the comforts of home with a well stocked kitchen and spacious living room. Wifi was provided and that facilitiy is important to me. The Georgian classic interior with high ceilings is typical of old Edinburgh. I cannot recommend this vacation rental highly enough you will not be disappointed.
