Two bedroom flat in the converted Crabbies Warehouse in Leith. Sleeps 5 (double bedroom, single bedroom, plus sofa bed for two).
Benefits from a private parking space (rare in Edinburgh!), 50 meg broadband, cable TV, large kitchen, washer drier.
It's on several bus routes - the 22, 14, 10, 35, 7, 16, 12.
Night buses: N22 and N16
Flat is situated in Leith, at the foot of Leith Walk, and is a short walk from Ocean Terminal, and about a 15 minute walk from city centre (5 min taxi). The apartment is close enough to the city centre for your convenience, but also in a quiet enough area to ensure a good nights sleep.
High chair and travel cot available.
Furnished to a high standard throughout, with solid oak furniture, high quality Egyptian cotton linens, and a well equipped kitchen.
A high quality white face cloth, hand towel, and bath sheet is provided for each guest.
Five people can be accommodated in one double bedroom, one single bedroom, and one double sofa-bed in the living room. This is self-catering accommodation.
The building itself is the former warehouse for Crabbies Green Ginger wine, and was constructed around 1850, before being converted into apartments in 1999. It's in a cosmopolitan location in Leith, with the trendy restaurants of the Shore on the next street.
Unusually for Edinburgh, we have a private parking space. Not that you'll need it - transport throughout the capital is fantastic, and from the apartment, there are seven bus routes, including two night buses (see further down the page). However, if you require additional parking, parking on nearby streets is free, and does not require a permit.
The apartment is on the ground floor, making it accessible for those with mobility issues. Despite being in the city, the apartment is very quiet, by virtue of the thick walls of the converted warehouse.
To welcome you after your journey to Edinburgh, you'll find a gift basket of tea, coffee, a few Scottish treats, and your first night's toiletries. There's also a pint of milk in the fridge.
The kitchen is fully equipped with the items you'd expect such as matching crockery, cutlery and glassware, as well as utensils for even the more adventurous cooks. If you need some inspiration to make use of the whisks, blender and pastry brushes, I've also supplied a selection of cookery books.

We have fast, free, 100 meg broadband internet, available both as wifi and wired connection. There's cable TV, with over 130 TV channels. I've also supplied a DVD library with over 80 DVDs suitable for all ages. If you prefer a relaxed evening reading a book, then there's also a selection of over 100 novels.
Unlimited free calls to UK landlines! The apartment's landline has free calling to landlines in 68 countries, and free calling to mobiles in many more, including the US and Canada.
The apartment is located on Great Junction Street, in Leith, Edinburgh, at the site of the Crabbies Warehouses. We have one private parking space, and there is further communal parking on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also free on-street parking nearby.
- Public Transport
Public transport is excellent, with 7 bus routes from within 100 metres of the apartment, including two night-bus routes. Despite its central location, the apartment is very quiet, thanks to its situation on the warehouse development.
The number 22 bus takes around 10 minutes to reach Princes Street, which is considered the heart of Edinburgh.
I look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
