Beautifully furnished and decorated ground-floor flat in Edinburgh's fashionable Leith. Filled with stylish flourishes, a fully-stocked cook's kitchen, it boasts a hidden library and direct access into a spacious back garden. With the Royal Yacht Britannia moored just a stone's throw away, it is perfect for small groups or a family wanting to explore beautiful Edinburgh and Scotland.
The flat dates from the Victorian era, with detailed cornicing and stained-glass flourishes reflecting its age. The bedroom is equipped with storage for clothes. The living room is easily adapted into a sleeping area via the addition of our air mattress. There is a second bedroom, equipped with a cot, that is available if you are traveling with small children. There is a laundry room just off the hall, complete with a washing machine and tumbler dryer for your use. The bathroom features a free-standing claw-foot bath, perfect for unwinding in after a long day on the city's cobbled streets. The large kitchen features a walk-in larder, a generously proportioned fridge-freezer, and plenty of room to cook up some amazing local produce. From the kitchen, double French doors open into a large terraced back garden that is shared with the rest of the friendly neighbours. It's a proper sun trap, especially in the morning. Great for that first coffee of the day. There's also a secret library with hundreds of books hidden somewhere in the flat. We'll let you try and find that on your own.
Guests have full access to all the rooms. Two cupboards with our personal items will be kept locked at all times.
Interaction with guests
We hope to be around to give guests keys, but it is also likely we will be away. If that is the case, one of our lovely and helpful friends will be on hand to let you in.
Originally from Ireland, now living in Edinburgh with my lovely Australian wife. We love this city and we love traveling. Always on the look out for the best places to eat, drink, and feel like a local.
