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 bathroom. 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 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.

The Scotland region

From historic properties and wonderful wildlife to world-class golf and exciting outdoor activities, there is so much to discover in the Lothians. Explore evocative ruins, spot distinctive species and play a round on an Open Championship course.

Newington

Edinburgh is facinating architecturally. The old town was built, then buildings were built on top of the buildings, then alleyways were closed in to create yet more living space. It's a virtual rabbit warren. The old town also houses one of the oldest Camera Obscuras in the world. The new town, in contrast, is grand, and very thoughtfully laid out in squares, with many, if not most of the buildings built in the Georgian Style. There are galleries and museums everywhere, not to mention Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood House, and the new Scottish Parliament.

Edinburgh, along with Glasgow, are also the cradles of the Scottish Enlightenment. Many of the ideals laid out in the US Constitution come from philosphers of the Scottish Enlightenment, and many of the actual authors were of Scots decent.

Add to this warm, wonderful people, a modern edge, a very walkable city, and fabulous dining, and you've got the makings for a great trip.

“Your search is over”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

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.

“Extravagant space, warmly furnished, in the rocking midst of Edinburgh.”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

The flat is spacious; four of us (married couple, daughter, mother-in-law) were not able to use all the bedrooms! It was turnkey usable, and apart from the 50 stone steps up from street level, we loved every minute of it! Edinburgh at Clerk Street is a busy, vibrant place, and the flat was perfect for our visit.

“Exceeded expectations, a superb place to stay.”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2013

We stayed at Epicurean Clerk on a visit to Edinburgh with extended family members in June 2012. The welcome and facilities were exceptional. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and furnished with beautiful objects which adds to the charm and uniqueness of this apartment. Well located for visiting Edinburgh.

“It's Edinburgh -- don't stay in, but if you do, stay here”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2013

Superb flat within walking distance of the Royal Mile, with easy access to highways, railways, good restaurants and pubs. Everything is in working order; there are no quirks. The place is clean, but not austere. We spent most of our time on the road, but if you want to spend a night in, the kitchen and living/dining rooms are enormous and welcoming. It felt like staying at a close friend's place.

“P-E-R-F-E-C-T!”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2013

This large flat has anything you need, including a baby grand piano. Lots of room to spread out, lovely and comfortable accommodations including a full kitchen and it is located in the center of everything. We mostly walked to the places like the Royal Mile, the Castle, etc. but there is also a bus line right on the street in front of the flat, which we used to explore outlining areas. Arthur's Seat is a refreshing nearby hike and offers stunning views of the area. I highly recommend staying at Epicurean Clerk.

“Great time at Epicurean Clerk”

Just one word..AMAZING!!!!the flat is huge and as perfect as in the pictures. we had an amazing graduation weekend in the flat and looking forward to come again next time. We felt home!

“Lovely place, close to Edinburgh University”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2013

Lovely place - really big and cosy and light. Also very close to the university, which was perfect for me. The two main bedrooms are very spacious.
