The space

A ground floor pied-a-terre in central Edinburgh - short walk to main shopping & historical locations. Easy to access public transport close by.

This flat was my home for over a decade & I have tried to maintain the sense of a home for guests. I came to Edinburgh to study English, Scottish & American Literature & am creating a collection for guests to enjoy the best of Scotland's literary past & present. I hope you find my flat a cosy & calm space to base yourself for the duration of your stay.

I try to respond as quickly as possible to all enquiries - guests will be met at the apartment on arrival for show round & key handover. I am happy to help with any enquiries during your stay.

I love the restaurants - on Brougham Street & Home Street you could visit Japan, France Spain, India & Thailand for food.

The neighbourhood is quite peaceful in an evening but so close to the centre of things.

Tollcross is a great transport hub - you can go in any direction on the bus & it's an easy walk to Haymarket Station.
Several LRT busroutes stop within an easy walk of Flat Five, download the EDINBUS app for details.
Taxi rank outside Loudon's on Fountainbridge - turn left at end of Gardner's Crescent.

If this flat is booked - we also have "A Room for Two" in Morningside. A peaceful place south of city centre with excellent transport links & free parking.

Guest access

Guests have the whole apartment to themselves! It's self contained and there is wifi.

Other things to note

Wifi is available but I'd like to make clear that there isn't a TV in the property. I haven't owned one for years as I use wifi to watch live or catch-up & there is a TV licence for the flat.

It was a small apartment suitable for a couple. The bathroom was amazing and the bedroom was amazing. She also had many books available for us to read.

Judith's place is a spacious, well equipped, and centrally located. We were able to walk to the tram, the castle, the royal mile and to a number of good restaurants. Judith is friendly and amazingly accommodating, even rescued a lost party in the late night. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfy place in Edinburgh.

Great place, very handy location, nice fittings and fixtures. Judith was easily contactable, and I really appreciated the milk, bread, butter and tasty jam!

Lovely, homely and personaly decorated apartment, made you feel att home and immadiately relaxed after a day out. We also appreciated the nice surroundings with a beautiful little park outside the kitchen wndow, and all sorts of cafés, restaurants and shops nearby. There was nothing further to wish from the apartment or the surroundings. Judith makes you feel welcome with fresh flowers and all you need for your first cup of tea or coffee on arrival, and even for a first hearty breakfast.

Judith was a wonderful and gracious host and her flat is gorgeous. It's in a lovely neighborhood, an easy walk from the city center but removed enough so that it's quiet and comfortable. Her decor is so thoughtful and extremely cool - loved all of the books! Very high ceilings and lots of natural light. Judith met me at the flat to give me a tour and show me all of the ins and outs - she provided details about the historic building and was kind enough to bring a lovely baguette and fresh cut flowers from her garden. Can't recommend this flat enough - will definitely look to stay again next time we are in Edinburgh!

Judith's place is great and she provides the greatest extras as well - my partner loved the granola and I loved the fresh bread and butter, and the milk in the fridge! Also, the tea selection was great. Fyi the road is a tad busy at night but it didn't bother us at all as we had earplugs. At any rate, we would stay again in a heartbeat!
