A charming, semi-detached house in traditional Edinburgh mews.

One of our best holiday apartments in Edinburgh, Circus Lane is part of a picturesque, cobbled mews. On the cusp of the New Town and Edinburgh’s affluent Stockbridge area, guests have all the usual city-centre conveniences while retaining the feel of a quiet residential retreat.

Interior layout

Circus Lane features two double bedrooms (one en-suite), a well-stocked kitchen, a bathroom (with fitted bath) and a bright and comfortably furnished living/dining room with table seating for four.

The spacious, king-sized master bedroom is located on the ground floor. Light-filled curtains and a muted colour palette create a calm and relaxing space. Plenty of storage space is available inside the sideboard or the chest of drawers. Relax in the armchairs and enjoy watching television, or make the most of the reading lamps on the bedside tables. The en-suite bathroom contains a fitted bath with a handheld showerhead.

A sleek, modern open staircase takes you up to the first floor. There, you will find a peaceful double bedroom, complete with a unique wooden wall mirror, two bedside tables with lamps, and lovely hardwood floors.

Adjacent to the bedroom, the bright and modern full bathroom features a glass shower cubicle.

The house’s kitchen and cosy living areas are located across the hallway on the first floor. The fully -equipped kitchen contains everything you might need for self catering, including a dishwasher, oven, microwave, and kettle. In the living and dining room, a compact dining table seats four, and plenty of relaxed seating provides the perfect space to sit back and spend time with family and friends.

A washing machine is at your disposal, and a high chair and travel cot are available by request.

Around and about

Circus Lane is just a lovely, ten-minute walk from Princes Street and Edinburgh’s central shopping districts. Wander down Circus Lane, past St Vincent’s Pub and St Stephen’s Theatre to walk through the Georgian New Town and reach the city centre.

Alternatively, guests can head north to Stockbridge, where they can enjoy the Sunday Stockbridge market or any of the area’s myriad pubs, cafes and boutique shops. Independent stores such as IJ Mellis Cheesemongers and Herbie’s Edinburgh are excellent for making the most out of your self-catering kitchen at Circus Lane!

And if this sounds all a bit too hectic, why not unwind with a stroll around Edinburgh’s world-famous botanical gardens, also just a short walk away. Enjoy Edinburgh through the seasons by exploring the Water of Leith Walkway, which will take you to scenic Dean Village and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, if you follow it towards the west.
