Self-catering holiday apartment in Edinburgh city centre

Interior layout

This charming, 1st-floor Georgian apartment sits on a quiet residential street in the heart of Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Just five minutes’ walk from the centre of town, our Cumberland Street apartment is the perfect base for taking in all that Scotland’s wonderful capital city has to offer.

The self-catering, holiday apartment is bright, spacious and very comfortable. It has been newly carpeted throughout and the clean, fresh décor make it an ideal refuge after a hard day’s sightseeing.

The flat features 2 large bedrooms and a smaller study/bedroom with a raised platform bed accessible via ladder. The master bedroom has an antique, queen-sized bed and features an en suite bathroom. The family bathroom has both a bath and shower, and is accessible to the other 2 bedrooms.

The generously sized and well-equipped kitchen boasts two fridge freezers providing plenty of storage space for any budding chefs hoping to self-cater. The kitchen table has seating for six and a high chair can be provided upon request. Alternatively, for those who prefer to let others do the cooking, many of Edinburgh’s famed gastronomic delights can be found within just a few minutes on foot.

Around and about

A ten-minute walk will take guests to Princess St, where they can access the airport tram link or jump on a quick 7-minute bus ride to the Royal Mile; the central thoroughfare of Edinburgh’s historic old town. From here you can visit Camera Obscura or the Castle, or, if you’re feeling brave, why not take a tour at the Real Mary Kings Close?

Heading out of town the Water of Leith is just a short stroll away, through the cobbled streets of Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, and provides beautiful, green, leafy walks away from the hubbub of the City centre.

And if all the sightseeing gets a bit much, why not take the edge off with a visit to the famous Cumberland Bar. Just a stone’s throw from your apartment, here you can sample some proper draft ales or enjoy an evening drink under the willow tree in the beer garden – a favourite haunt with locals.

Paid on-street parking is free from 5.30pm until 8.30am and at weekends.
