About the Property

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 5

'Royal Mile 5 mins walk, FREE parking/Wifi' is a fully owner managed/maintained, spacious, 2 bedroom apartment overlooking Holyrood Park, with stunning views of Arthur's Seat. The flat benefits from free WiFi and free on street parking, is just moments from the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's residence in Edinburgh) and is just 5 mins (off road) walk from Scotland’s premier tourist hub, namely the Holyrood Palace / Scottish Parliament / Arthur’s Seat / Royal Mile / “Dynamic Earth” area.

This central Edinburgh (see our map “photo”) apartment occupies a quiet position on the second floor of a traditional Scottish tenement building, situated at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac that provides pedestrian access to Holyrood Park. There is a Secure (buzzer) Entry System with an intercom providing additional security.

The apartment is situated pretty much as close as you can get to all the historic Old Town sites and visitor attractions in Edinburgh with FREE on street parking. Most of central Edinburgh is unfortunately (expensive!) metered parking zones.

The apartment comprises an attractive, bright, open plan living room / dining area / kitchen. It's a lovely open and comfortable living area with plenty of room to kick back and relax after a hard day out seeing the sights or attending a work event. The living room has a large sofa bed which pulls out very easily to form a good sized (6Ft 8') double bed.

The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, a washing machine, dish washer, integrated fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave as well as electrically wired heat & smoke detectors. In the vicinity there are a number of smaller shops as well as (5mins walk) the substantial Meadowbank shopping centre that includes a Sainsburys, TK Maxx and other high end outlets. However, for those that prefer to dine out, cosmopolitan Edinburgh is renowned for its large selection of restaurants, with a variety of restaurants / pubs close by.

There is a spacious bedroom with a European King sized bed (6Ft 6' by 5Ft 2'), double wardrobe and integrated drawers for storage. The second bedroom is a single (box) room with single bed and a wardrobe. The shower room, with toilet and wash hand basin, has been recently modernised to a high standard. Off the hallway there is an additional toilet & wash hand basin.

A pleasant 5 minute walk through Holyrood Park takes you to the buses at the foot of the Royal Mile (which is also an Airport Link bus stop) or alternatively to London Road, a major access road, whose numerous bus routes provide access to the main tourist and shopping destinations.

Whenever possible, guests will be welcomed personally at the property for the handover of keys. As you would expect, crisp fresh linen, bath and hand towels are provided for guests. In addition, local information / literature, iPod docking station and a small selection of books, DVDs & board games have been provided for your perusal.

Car: Not Necessary

GETTING TO THE FLAT:

Transport Links are excellent as the apartment is close to several main bus routes which access most areas of the city and beyond.

A) Bus/Airport: The No. 35 Lothian (airport) Bus stops at the bottom of the Royal Mile, c.5 min walk from the apartment, costs £1.60 & takes c.1.5Hrs. The (airport) Airlink 100 express reaches Waverley Bridge (1mile from flat) in c.30-40mins. During the day this bus leaves every 10mins & costs £4.50

B) Taxis: Are widely available at the airport & cost around £25 (depending on traffic) to get to the flat. Alternatively try calling City Cabs (0131 228 1211) or Central Taxis (0131 229 2468)

C) Trains: Waverley Train Station is a 15-20min walk away. A taxi to/from Waverley will cost c.£5 to get to the apartment. [There is baggage storage at the train station]

D) Car: Nearby access to the city bypass & motorway networks is very useful. It can sometimes be difficult to find free parking in Edinburgh City Centre but Milton Street is probably as close as you can get to the Royal Mile and the Old Town and be able to PARK FOR FREE at all times.

E) Tram: A quick 3 min walk from the airport will take you to the tram stop where you can buy tickets (£5.50 an adult). Trams run every 8-10mins and it will take c. 45mins to get to York Place (the last stop). Alighting here you can then take a Lothian bus (26 or 44) to Carlyle Place and it is just a 5 minute walk from here or you can walk from York Place which will take c. 20mins

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD:

1) Milton Street: The apartment is very centrally located with all of Edinburgh's tourist attractions within easy reach. Ideally situated for the Royal Mile (5 min walk), Palace of Holyrood House (5 min walk), Scottish Parliament and Dynamic Earth (5 min walk) as well as having the beautiful Holyrood Park right on the doorstep. There are also numerous festival and 'Fringe' venues (the famous Pleasance through the park, 10 min walk), the Grassmarket and Cowgate (15-20 min walk) Edinburgh Castle (15-20 min walk).

#################

2) Edinburgh: The Old Town's cobbled streets, closes (alleyways) and historic Victorian / Georgian architecture make it visually stunning. The grandeur of the New Town, designer/boutique shopping on George Street and an immense choice of restaurants and bars make it a city to suit everyone's taste and budget!

#################

3) The Festival city: Festivals are what Edinburgh does best, with something going on all year round. The high summer Military Tattoo & International and the Fringe are perhaps the best known, however to name but a few Edinburgh hosts the Science festival (April), Film Festival (June), Jazz & Blues Festival (July), Book Festival, Mela (August) and numerous gourmet food events.

- http://www.edinburgh.org/see-do/events/festivals/

#################

4) Entertainment: Edinburgh has a throbbing night-life, is home to various jazz bars, comedy clubs, while during the summer street entertainment & busking Bag Pipers are never far away. The nearby Playhouse (15-20mins) & Festival Theatre (20min walk) host an abundance of cultural events, including operas, ballets & stand up comedy shows.

#################

5) Walking in The Green City: Edinburgh is a fantastic city to visit and is small enough to walk around. Holyrood Park, Princes Street gardens and the meadows (tennis & pitch n putt golf!) are popular places for a stroll, offering a change to the ever present guided historical / ghost tours! For the more energetic, Arthur's Seat (1min away), an extinct volcano, is crisscrossed with walking trails and is popular with runners / cyclists as well as tourists for some of the best views of the city from Salisbury Crags. In addition, the Botanical Gardens and Edinburgh Zoo, home to the UK's only Giant Pandas, are both worth a visit and are accessible by bus.

#################

6) Running, Edinburgh Marathon: Billed as “the fastest marathon in the UK” and “one of the fastest in the World” Edinburgh is expected to host 40,000+ elite athletes in May 2017.

#################

7) Hogmanay, the Scottish New Year: The Scots word for “the last day of the year.” Enough said!

#################

All in all, in the sunshine there is nothing better than wandering around the streets soaking up the atmosphere. When it rains (which has been known!) you are never far from somewhere interesting to dash into out of the weather. Edinburgh boast a huge number of Art Galleries, Museums, theatres and live music venues as well as Cinema's, indoor shopping centres and entertainment Plaza's - something for everyone!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Both my partner and I were born and brought up in Edinburgh and have spent most of our lives in this beautiful city. I previously worked for the Scottish Government, in roles ranging from Policy Development to briefing Ministers, while Campbell worked for various finance companies. Since early 2013 we have been managing our own Holiday Let business and, thanks to repeat business & many positive reviews, now both do this on a full time basis. We have created very thorough welcome folders and email our guests’ apartment specific (4 page) brochures which have instructions on the various modes of transport to get to each apartment, as well as information (& a map) on nearby bars / restaurants / shops etc and links to things-to-do while in Edinburgh. Our business is our income, meaning we’re fully incentivised to ensure that you have a great time and (hopefully) come back again and/or recommend our apartments to your friends!

Why the Owner Chose Edinburgh, UK:
Quite simply, the best of what Edinburgh has to offer is right on your door step as the apartment is located in the heart of the City (see our map “photo”). Scotland’s premier tourist hub, namely the World famous Royal Mile / Holyrood Palace (the Queen’s residence) / Scottish Parliament / Arthur’s Seat (set in a 650 acre park, is the view from your living room window) area, is within a 5min walk, while a 5 min walk in the other direction takes you to London Road (a major bus nexus providing access to Princes Street in 5mins and routes to the Old/New Town, the Royal Yacht in c.15mins and Edinburgh Zoo in c.30mins etc). And, despite its central location, the apartment benefits from much sought after FREE WiFi & FREE on street parking!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Without a doubt the apartment’s central location (beside Holyrood Palace & a 650 acre park), amazing views, pedestrian access to the park, close to the main attractions and ready access to FREE parking has been a major Holiday Let draw. In addition, I believe the fact that the apartment is fully owner managed / maintained, meaning you’re assured of receiving a personalised service, has lifted our offering above the pack. Nearby there is a major shopping centre (5mins walk), other shops / pubs / restaurants, numerous bus stops (including an airport / tour bus stop) and it’s close to the main train station (Edinburgh Waverley). In short, this apartment is a great base to make the most of your visit to Edinburgh! ................ I speak English; however please note that over the years I have found Google Translate very effective for assisting with queries & handling bookings in other languages.
