Stylish Edinburgh New Town Apartment

Located in: Edinburgh »
Beautifully presented two bedroom apartment that sleeps three, situated in the ultra cool Stockbridge, known as the 'Village in the City'. Located on a gorgeous street surrounded by some of Edinburgh's best local and independent restaurants, cafes, shops and bars, this is such a great area for visit to Edinburgh or business trip. Also only a short walk into the city and to all of Edinburgh's main attractions. Two of Edinburgh's most infamous traditional bars are on the street- the Bailey and the Antiquary- where you can enjoy a proper Auld Scottish pub (with a selections of fine ales and whiskey and regular folk music nights). The Last Word cocktail bar is only a minute away, an exclusive hideaway, where the drinks are five star.

Walking distance to main tourist sites:
Stockbridge Market: 2 mins
Inverleith Park: 14 mins
Scottish National Portrait Gallery: 16 mins
The Dean Bridge: 16 mins

The flat has recently been renovated and is equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay. It would also suit a business traveller for a longer stay very well. The quiet set back nature of the apartment means it is the perfect to enjoy a glass of wine and meal following a hard days work or touring the city. The flat is the perfect base to introduce you to all that fabulous Edinburgh has to offer.
The Space:
The flat is is on the first floor, and is a two bedroom apartment, with one double and one single room. Brilliantly located at the top end of Stockbridge, within a 10 mins walk of George Street and Edinburgh's city centre. Stockbridge enjoys the best of Edinburgh's bars and restaurants, it has a friendly village vibe despite being a stones throw from Edinburgh's main central attractions. The stunning Botanical Gardens and Inverleith Park are all very close by which are perfect for a romantic stroll. The flat is set back from one of Stockbridge's highlights- St Stephens Street- a speciality shopping street, with quirky boutiques, antique shops and foodie heaven tucked below street level.
Guest Access:
Guests will have access to the whole apartment during their stay. There is a large bedroom, with good clothes storage and the bathroom is modern and well fitted. The second bedroom has a very comfortable single bed. The living room has a very comfortable sofa to catch up on a movie, and the large sash window overlook St. Stephens Street providing ample light into the living space. There is a dining table that can seat four, and a kitchen fully equipped to cook.
Interaction with Guests:
If you need any additional help or information then please do not hesitate to ask. If I cannot help myself, there is always someone on standby- day or night.
The Neighborhood:
Edinburgh is exploding with life during the famous Fringe Festival & Hogmanay, but it is also just as vibrant all year round. The apartment is in the heart of Stockbridge, just to the North of the City's central New Town - and there is plenty to see and do right on your doorstep. Stockbridge has its own market every Sunday, with premium local produce and Scottish crafts. It also has its own annual Stockbridge Festival for 9 days at the end of June and the famous charity duck race where 1000 ducks are launched into the Water of Leith, which winds it's way through the area.

It is an area that has traditionally attracted creative professionals. It houses the coveted ' Stockbridge Colonies', 11 parallel streets built to provide housing for the artisan class working on Edinburgh's flamboyant New Town Mansions. As such, whilst lesser in scale the buildings of Stockbridge were generously detailed by this highly skilled community of craftsmen with ornate cornicing, Georgian sash windows and stunning quality architectural features.

There are many fabulous cafes, restaurants and bars in the area, and plenty of takeaways for business travellers- a choice for every taste.
Inverleith Park, The Botanical Gardens and the Water of Leith are all within 5 minutes offering stunning backdrops for a stroll, jog or picnic.

The flat is just off St Stephen Street, a curving Georgian street of flats with the basements and ground floors accommodating a series of antique shops, bars and offices. St Stephens Place is a small spur on its north side, it once lead to the old Stockbridge Market, of which the original entrance stone archway still stands which the flat overlooks.

At the end of St Stephens Street, the St Stephens Street Church is a prominent Edinburgh Landmark, designed by Architect William Playfair. From here it is only about a 10 minutes walk directly up Howe Street to George Street, Princes Street and the main attractions of the city.
Getting Around:
No need for a car! The apartment is so central that all the city centre attractions and transport links are within easy walking distance. In fact I'd recommend not bringing a car into the city centre unless you absoluteley need to. There is on street parking available immediately outside the flat but it can get a little expensive (£2.40/hr). Waverley Train station is a 20 minute walk from the apartment (easiest to get a taxi with luggage). The airport is only a 30 minute bus or tram ride away. The airport bus (no100) runs to Waverley Station from the airport. The new Edinburgh Trams are also now running from the airport to the city centre. Princes Street and George St are also only a 10 minute walk. There are many buses along Princes Street, connecting to most routes around the city. Taxis are usually easy to pick up pretty much anywhere in Edinburgh,. Best place from the flat is just around the corner on Stockbridge's high street- Raeburn Place.
