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 space

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.

We were very comfortable in Edds lovely home. We would love to return next time we are in Edinburgh.

This is such a tastefully decorated apartment but homely too. It definitely has a lived in vibe but not uncomfortably so, you just think wow the owners have got their act together and you would like to steal their life. They were always available to answer any questions and we enjoyed our stay. Even though we moved our car a few times we always got parked on the street again. We like the area of Edinburgh the apartment is in.
