Royal Mile

5 Guests

1 Bathrooms

4 Beds

A bright and comfortable apartment just off the Royal Mile and a short walk from Waverley Train Station. 

Our Royal Mile apartment is part of a picturesque and historic courtyard in the heart of the Old Town and is an ideal base for those intent on taking in all that Scotland’s wonderful capital has to offer. 

Interior layout

This bright and tastefully decorated flat is on the first floor above ground level. It has two bedrooms, one king-sized and one twin, as well as a sofa bed in the living room that can be prepared for an additional guest.

The double bedroom features a spacious closet, two bedside tables with lamps, and a large chest of drawers. The airy twin bedroom contains two comfortable beds, a chest of drawers, and two bedside lamps. There’s plenty of storage space in the closet, and a mirror and rattan chair complete the space. The bathroom contains a full shower over bath.

The comfortable living and dining room features a comfortable sofa, television, sideboard and well-stocked bookshelf. The dining table seats up to four, and the room includes a cosy little balcony that overlooks tree-lined cobblestone square.

The kitchen is stocked with essentials for self-catering, including an oven, hob, and microwave. 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. 

No parking is available in the courtyard. The nearest long-stay car park is at St John’s Hill, which is less than a 5 minute walk away. For more information, you can read our comprehensive parking guide in Edinburgh.

Around and about

Chessel’s Court dates back to the 1700s and is steeped in local history. An open, tree-lined green marks the middle of the courtyard. Guests also have access to a private garden/growing area that is shared between the residents of the building.

The apartment is in an excellent position for exploring Edinburgh’s many historical and cultural attractions. Step out of the courtyard directly on to the famous Royal Mile, which runs from the Palace of Holyroodhouse all the way up to Edinburgh Castle (for about a mile, unsurprisingly), and is full of with bars, restaurants and independent shops. Why not head up to St. Giles Cathedral or drop in on a whisky bar and sample some of Scotland’s golden elixirs?

The apartment is less than a fifteen minute walk to the Castle and less than 10 minutes to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The striking architecture of the Scottish Parliament is just across the street, with the beautiful and wild hills of Holyrood Park just beyond. A hike up Arthur’s Seat will provide incredible birds’ eye views of the city.

Chessel’s Court is especially convenient for guests arriving by train. Edinburgh Waverley Station is just a six minute walk away. Meanwhile, the shopping and restaurant thoroughfares along Princes Street and George Street in the New Town can likewise be reached in less than ten minutes.
