New Town Heart of the Burgh

Hello and welcome to the Burgh, our fine city with big heart!

Our cosy wee flat is tucked away in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. Here, you’re ideally placed to explore worlds old and new right from the doorstep or retreat from the bustle when you need it.

The flat is a neat and comfortable studio on the lower ground floor dating from around 1815 and constructed as part of the Northern New Town development. It comprises a living area with kitchenette, a bedroom with double bed and a bathroom with shower.

You’ll find everything you need in the kitchen to help you feel at home. There is an undercounter fridge with freezer, two plate induction hob and microwave/convection oven as well as crockery and basic cooking utensils. There is no dishwasher, but there is a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The flat has gas central heating, fast unlimited wifi and all bed linen and towels are provided. We can also offer a travel cot, suitable for little ones up to 3years old.

It takes about 20min to walk to the University of Edinburgh's central campus, or there are two buses which pass right up outside and will generally get you there faster, but as you're passing through the heart of the city, this can't be guaranteed!

Here, in the centre of Edinburgh's New Town, you are ideally situated for easy access to Edinburgh's well known delights - be your preferences sights and smells, or shops and restaurants, quaint spots or green spaces and crisp clear views, strike out east, west, north or south and they're yours to explore. George St, Princes St, the 'Old Town', Stockbridge, Leith and the Shore area, Holyrood, the Water of Leith, the Botanic Gardens, and so many more. But save some energy to roam and discover your own highlights! And you won't have to go far, surrounded by award winning restaurants, local hidden-gem pubs and too many quirky shops to mention selling everything from antiques to wedding dresses, you'll have it all at your fingertips.

Being the centre of town, on street parking nearby is limited and metered and expensive, but you shouldn’t have much need for a car with excellent public transport (27 and 23 Bus routes just outside) and plentiful taxis right on your doorstep. If you are driving, you could consider parking in the suburbs and coming in by bus or taxi, or using Park and Ride. We're happy to help you work the best options out!

About Me
Hi there, We like the lost places, the byways and the beautiful. Not exceedingly travelled, but happily travelled. Seekers of sun and something to disturb us from an all too easy slide into older age... Looking forward to being more adventurous with our little people and exploring old and new together.
