An elegant three-bedroom apartment on a quiet street in the heart of the New Town.

Situated in Edinburgh’s New Town, our clean, spacious Cumberland Street apartment provides a comfortable and convenient base for your holiday in Scotland’s wonderful capital city.

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 a five-minute 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.

This self-catering Edinburgh city centre holiday apartment is bright, spacious and very comfortable. It has been newly carpeted throughout and the clean, fresh décor makes it an ideal refuge after a long day of 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 Princes Street, 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 and the Castle; or, if you’re feeling brave, why not take a tour of the Real Mary King’s Close?

The Water of Leith is just a short stroll away, taking you from the cobbled streets of Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town on a beautiful green, leafy walk, 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 on weekdays and all weekend.
