The house, built in the 1860s, has been lovingly decorated, mixing a timeless Edinburgh style with the owner's love of travel. On the walls are vintage maps and photographs, original artworks and pieces collected from around the globe. Special touches include the real Harris Tweed sofa, a guest book-exchange box and a unique 2 meter map dating from the 1940s.
The double bedroom is light and spacious with the original fireplace and beautiful wooden furniture. Crisp, real linen bedding is provided and there is a selection of hand-picked books relating to Scotland for guests to read.

The kitchen is compact and well laid out, equipped with a Smeg gas hob and electric oven, Smeg toaster, Le Creuset singing kettle and modern Belfast sink. There is also a fridge freezer, washer and dryer machine.
The open plan lounge and dining area is a comfortable space to relax and enjoy a meal. Guests can sink into the Harris Tweed sofa whilst enjoying the warmth of the stove in an evening. The dining table seats 4 and overlooks the gardens of Teviotdale Place. There is a smart digital TV with complimentary WIFI.
The new bathroom is fitted with a large shower with drencher head, full wall mirror and spot lighting. Egyptian cotton towels are provided for guests.
The house has its own private front door and is located on a quiet cobbled street at the end of which runs the Water of Leith. Guests can enjoy the small Japanese-style garden whilst relaxing on the wooden bench and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere of the Colonies.
The Stockbridge Colonies sit alongside the pretty Water of Leith and are moments away from the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Glenogle Baths (beautifully restored Victorian swimming pool and modern gym). The area is buzzing with great restaurants, bars and independent shops. On a Sunday the famous Stockbridge market sells an array of Scottish produce and crafts.
There are local supermarkets close to the house. To walk to the city centre takes you through the Georgian New Town area where guests will discover interesting galleries and antiques shops on route . A stroll along the banks of the Water of Leith will take you to the Gallery of Modern Art and the beautiful Dean Village.
We supply a folder in the property explaining how the appliances work, giving internet access details and recommendations for local shops, bars, cafes and restaurants!

Es un apartamento excelente y muy confortable, ideal para familias. El apartamento no está en el centro de la ciudad pero tiene disponibles varios medios de transporte, el más cercano es el autobús. Me gustó mucho alojarme allí, está en una zona tranquila y no hay ruidos ni molestias. Además está muy cerca de varios centros comerciales y de supermercados, algo que me ha gustado mucho. El apartamento es muy limpio y está equipado con todo. Me ha gustado mucho y no dudo en compartirlo.
Estupendo apartamento.Limpio,bonito y bien equipado. Muy céntrico.Un lujo.Volvería sin dudarlo y lo recomendaría por su comodidad y confort. Un acierto.
We loved this flat - the high ceilings and location were just perfect. You have a perfect view of the castle out of the living room window. It's set in a lovely part of town, just a short walk to Grassmarket, the castle, royal mile and the rest of the old town. The flat was immaculate, and the rep who met us with the keys was helpful and friendly. Will use again!
Una estancia perfecta, nosotros llegamos el primer día bastante tarde y nos dejaron las llaves en una cajita fuera y sin ningún problema. El piso es tal y como estar en las fotos, muy bonito, limpio, ordenado y no le falta detalle. Estar a unos 10' de pleno centro, con paradas de autobús es la misma puerta. Nos ha encantado y no dudamos en volver.
Eine sehr schöne und gut ausgestattete Wohnung in relativ zentraler Lage. Das Zentrum Edingburghs ist nur wenige Busstationen entfernt. Die Haltestelle ist in unmittelbarer Nähe. Um die Ecke gibt es eine sehr gute Einkaufmöglichkeit. Sehr freundlicher und professioneller Kontakt zum Vermieter. Die Wohnung ist sehr zu empfehlen.
Comfortable and very quiet little apartment close to everything you need and 5 minutes bus ride up the hill to Princes Street. My one complaint is the rather strange tree trunk table with screws that stick out in the middle of the top of the table just in the place where you want to put your laptop to work...
Splendid and very charming apartment.
