Have a relaxing stay in this peaceful light-filled home close to Edinburgh’s city centre yet surrounded by magnificent green space. This is a third-floor flat in a traditional Edinburgh tenement (no lift) at the end of a small cul-de-sac that takes you directly into the natural splendour of Holyrood Park. The views will take your breath away.
Just across the wide stretch of grass behind the house is Holyrood Palace (so yes, you will temporarily have a royal neighbour ☺) and the Scottish Parliament. Both of those are at the bottom of the Royal Mile, which takes you through the old town up to Edinburgh castle. Prefer public transport? There are plenty of city centre bus connections on nearby London Road. There is also free parking in this neighbourhood.
Apart from a (UK) king-size bed, the flat offers a small sofa-bed (for up to two kids or snug co-sleepers) as well as a single futon.
Welcome to my little haven, which I first discovered 35 years ago. It hasn’t changed all that much since then, but it has recently been refurbished and should have everything to keep you happy and comfortable.
The open-plan living area has a newly installed kitchen (with oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster, and ample kitchenware), dining table, and a sofa which easily expands into a small double bed.
Apart from a king-size bed (and flat-screen TV), the spacious double bedroom has a rocking chair from which you can contemplate Arthur’s seat, a handcrafted chaise-longue and an original Victorian wardrobe. Fresh linen, towels and toiletries will be provided.
The bathroom has a bath with shower. There is also a box room/study with a large oak desk.
I hope you will find this unique home as special as I do, and that you have a wonderful stay.
Guest will enjoy full access to the apartment
Interaction with Guests:
My home is in the hands of GuestReady, a property management team who work hard to make sure your stay is smooth and comfortable! They will be available 24/7 should you have any questions or requests during your stay.
There are plenty of wonderful places to explore near the home. Holyrood Park, Arthur's Seat and Palace of Holyroodhouse are all nearby and highly recommended. You can also visit the Scottish Parliament, Dynamic Earth, the Royal Mile, and central Edinburgh!
Some of our favourite restaurants and cafes in the area are Red Kite cafe (7-8 Cadzow Place), Hemma (Holyrood Road) and the Safari Lounge (21 Cadzow Place). However if you would like to cook at home, you can buy groceries at Sainsbury's at Meadowbank and Tesco Express on Holyrood Road.
There are several buses into the town centre from London Road. We also have free parking on Waverley Park and Waverley Park Terrace (except on yellow lines).
