Formerly my home, and just revamped top to bottom, you’ll be in one of Edinburgh’s most smart, relaxed and young-at-heart neighbourhoods. Marchmont has always been characterised by academics, professionals and Edinburgh University students living easily side-by-side, and so it remains - Marchmont’s allure is as strong as ever. The streets are peppered with independent shops and eclectic coffee stops so you’ll want for nothing locally. however the blissful green expanse of Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows are two minutes away. Walking across the latter (under the gaze of Arthur’s Seat to the east) will see you in the city centre amidst all of Edinburgh’s attractions in 15 pleasant minutes. Accessed via a clean and well-lit shared stairway (kept secure by an entryphone system), the flat is happily only one flight up. And once inside you’ll appreciate the restrained but luxurious surroundings, the extraordinary period features, the high ceilings and sheer scale of the accommodation.
Apartment on The Meadows, Central Edinburgh - easily walkable to everywhere, moments from Edinburgh’s incomparable Meadows and Bruntsfield Links

About Martin or Weng
Edinburgh residents (and superfans!) who take great delight when guests enjoy the city as much as we do. Easing ourselves gently into semi-retirement means we have time to indulge the passion we have for our home. This means you'll be dealing with us and not a 'manager' - all the better to ensure your time with us is as good as you'd wish.

Great accommodation, very well decorated with care, nothing extra to want for
The property was very very clean with everything you need to have a great holiday. Martin and Weng have thought of just about everything. Even to having multiple clothes drying racks which we haven’t come across yet. This makes it so much better than drying clothes all over the place. Very helpful, even enabled me to watch the AFL grand final live with some technical help. Edinburgh is a great city and staying in the apartment topped it off even more. We were delighted with the special treats on arrival with a personal touch. Thanks again Martin and Weng for enabling us to stay in your apartment which we could tell you take a lot of pride in.
Lovely, comfortable apartment, well renovated with quality finishes.
This is a roomy, high-ceilinged, Georgian apartment with comfortable, well appointed decor, comfortable king size bed, quality fixtures and finishes in the bath and kitchen, all tastefully done without pretension. We loved it! The location is great, you are surrounded by food shops (4 within 3 blocks), and there are two very good restaurants, The Rabbit Hole, and Le Petit Mort, quite close by, Old Town is just a walk across The Meadows. Taxi stand is across Marchmont Road, and bus stops almost right outside. We highly recommend this one!
Wonderful place and area!
Beautifully decorated with very large rooms and high ceilings. Quiet neighborhood, but still has lots of quaint shops, pubs, and restaurants. Easy ten minute walk to downtown area. Martin and Weng met us as soon as we arrived and were very helpful and great hosts! Thanks!
Beautifully decorated and managed flat that was comfortable, warm/helpful hosts & great location.
Martin & Weng were so warm and helpful and have maintained the beauty of this lovely flat. It is elegant and also comfortable, great location just out of the fray. It is immaculate. They have on hand everything guests could want and more. It was a complete pleasure staying there.
Outstanding five star stay in Edinburgh!
We stayed in Martin & Weng's for 3 lovely nights. Our first impression was that their home was immaculate and were greeted with a most thoughtful welcoming gift of wine, sweet treats and breakfast items including tea, coffee and milk. We ventured walking through the beautiful "Meadows" park straight into Edinburgh center. The neighborhood of Marchmont is charming with everything you need within a couple of blocks. Taxi's available right on the corner though we chose to use Uber when exploring further than our "older" limbs could carry us. The flat was so relaxing and enjoyable to return to at the end of a full day exploring all the wonders Edinburgh & Scotland have to offer. Back to the spacious flat...bathroom was outstanding with a wonderful shower, bed was so comfortable, kitchen was huge with all new fixtures and large living room with comfy sofas and chairs. Make sure to visit the local restaurant/pub "Earl of Marchmont" where you will be warmly welcomed by the locals. If we are lucky enough to return to Edinburgh we would not have to look any further than Marchmont! Thank you again Martin & Weng...Cheers!

Beautifully furnished flat in excellent location, would highly recommend.
Had a wonderful visit to this fantastic city , so so much to see , the flat was perfect in both location and decor . Plenty of shops , coffee shops and pubs on your doorstep if you don’t fancy the walk into the city . We will definitely return to this flat .
The East Lothian coast with its myriad walks, links courses and pretty coastal towns can be reached quickly by car or train, as can the East Neuk of Fife with a string of charming fishing villages.
Edinburgh Airport (with flights to Europe, and multiple daily flights to London) is reached by a cheap & regular bus service stopping at the West End, Princes Street, Waverley Station.
Edinburgh's mainline rail stations serve the entire UK.
Car use isn't required in Edinburgh since everywhere is walkable, but drivers will find paid on-street parking in surrounding streets (Mon-Fri) and free on-street parking a short walk away. Long-term parking is also found in the city's main car parks.
Since Edinburgh is a compact city and a joy to walk around, distances are irrelevant given the proximity to the city centre. However those wishing to explore further afield will find Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and St Andrews within easy reach by car or public transport, with the majestic Highlands and the rural Scottish Borders quite feasible for day trips for those with a car.
