A cosy and well-equipped garden-level apartment in Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town.
Vibrant by day but peaceful by night, Dundas Street is an excellent base for exploring the city centre. Stay in this bright and cheerful one-bedroom apartment to make the most out of your time in Edinburgh.
A flight of stairs leads from the street down to this apartment’s entry. With large, light-filled windows and a private patio on the garden level, this warm and welcoming holiday apartment provides a quiet haven for you to relax during your Edinburgh stay.
Venture past the entry hallway to reach the apartment’s open-plan living area. This cosy and comfortable room contains a sofa and armchair as well as a television for your entertainment.
In the back of the room, a well-equipped kitchenette will fulfill all of your self-catering needs. Essentials include a hob, oven, toaster, and kettle. We will also prepare a welcome pack in the apartment for you, including milk, tea, coffee, fresh fruit, and locally-made Scottish shortbread biscuits.
A generously-sized wooden dining table across the room seats two. Located beside the luminous, street-side window, this is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning!
The cosy, carpeted bedroom has zip-and-link beds which can be made up as two singles or a double. Two bedside tables and reading lamps accompany the beds, in addition to a dressing mirror and a fitted wardrobe at the far end of the bedroom, beside the modern en-suite shower room. Further storage space can be found in the integrated shelving in the windowsill.
Like the living area, the bedroom has a large light-filled street-side window. Double glazing, curtains and working wooden shutters provide effective noise insulation in both rooms. A washing machine is at your disposal, and a high chair and travel cot are available by request.
This self-catering property has Wi-Fi, a hairdryer and an iron and ironing board. Please note that there is no parking at the apartment. On-street parking is free from 5:30 p.m till 8:30 a.m. on Monday to Friday and free from 5:30 p.m. on Friday to 8:30 a.m. on Monday. You can find more information from our parking guide in Edinburgh.
Around and about
This apartment is perfectly positioned for experiencing everything that Edinburgh has to offer. Edinburgh Castle and the historic Royal Mile are just a twenty minute walk away, and the many shops and restaurants in the New Town are even closer by – the walk up Dundas Street is very scenic, with lovely views of the Firth of Forth on one side and the Old Town skyline on the other.
A popular New Town thoroughfare, Dundas Street is known for its many galleries, antique shops, and cafes. There’s plenty to explore as you wander the elegant streets of the Georgian New Town, and the apartment is well connected with good transport links throughout the city.
To truly immerse yourself in the surrounding neighbourhood, why not dive into 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith? This novel is set in Edinburgh’s New Town and features real local characters such as writer Ian Rankin – you’ll even find Dundas Street mentioned in its pages!
There is also plenty of green space nearby, if you wish to experience a more peaceful side of Edinburgh. The east gate to the tranquil Royal Botanic Garden is just a ten minute walk away. You will also pass the lovely Water of Leith Walkway on the way. Follow this leafy path to reach the cafes, shops, and boutiques of the Stockbridge neighbourhood (which also has a fantastic Sunday farmers’ market!) Beyond, you’ll find the idyllic banks of Dean Village, and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art further on.
