A beautiful and spacious traditional townhouse apartment in the heart of the city.
Built in the mid-18th century during the time of the Scottish Enlightenment, this elegant first-floor Heriot Row townhouse apartment overlooks Queen Street Gardens in the heart of the city, giving it an illusion of being in the countryside rather than the city centre.
Classic decor and traditional furnishings combine to create a timeless property that is perfect for experiencing the character of Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town. The apartment itself retains many of its original features. Its rooms are wonderfully spacious, with high ceilings and windows throughout.
The property can accommodate three guests. A large bedroom contains a super king-sized bed. The room features a large vintage rug, as well as a television, a chest of drawers, and a small table with two chairs.
The double bedroom contains a double bed, a small bedside table and lamp, as well as a wardrobe for storage.
The south side of the apartment overlooks the private gardens of Queen Street (to which guests have access), while the north side offers views across the city to the Firth of Forth. The light-filled drawing room provides an elegant and comfortable space to gather, as well as a dining table that seats up to five.
The airy kitchen area provides casual seating for two, and is fully equipped for both long and short stays. There is a sleek bathroom with a modern shower.
The apartment has a washing machine and drying facilities, dishwasher, microwave, iron, TV, DVD player, free WiFi internet, heating and lighting. There is an ample supply of towels and linen which are included in the rental. A high chair and travel cot are available by request.
Please note that there is no parking at the apartment. On-street parking is free from 6:30 p.m till 8:30 a.m. on Monday to Saturday and free from 6:30 p.m. on Saturday to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. You can find more information from our parking guide in Edinburgh.
Around and about
This Edinburgh apartment is wonderfully central. A twelve-minute walk will take you to George Street and all the world-class restaurants, bars and shops the city centre has to offer, including many of Greatbase’s top picks for the 6 best restaurants for Scottish dining in Edinburgh. From George Street, the many enchanting attractions of Edinburgh’s Old Town are just a short distance away – legendary Edinburgh Castle and the famous Royal Mile are only a fifteen-minute walk from the Heriot Row apartment, and a very scenic walk at that!
In the opposite direction of the Old Town, you will find Stockbridge, with its cafes, restaurants, shops and excellent Sunday Market. Edinburgh’s lovely botanic gardens are a twenty-minute walk this way – in the same area, you will also find idyllic Dean Village, set upon the leafy banks of the scenic Water of Leith Walkway.
