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 entry phone 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

Absolutely wonderful experience
Fantastic accommodation and very welcoming hosts. The apartment was close to lots of tourist attractions as well as good restaurants. Great kitchen, beautifully appointed rooms and very comfortable beds.
A lovely flat - highly recommended
We very much enjoyed staying at this flat. It's of a very good size, very
well equipped, tastefully furnished and was very clean. The price asked
was very reasonable for what is on offer and saved us a great deal over
the costs of staying in a good hotel. The organisation
of the rental and communication between us and the owner was excellent. Everything worked very well and we might well seek to rent this flat again on a future visit.
Lovely place to stay
We stayed here the weekend of the Edinburgh marathon. Absolutely fantastic appartment, all the ammenities you could ever need and beautifully decorated. The appartment is only a short walk through through the park to the city centre. Perfet location, and really nice being so close to so much greenery in a city. We would recommend staying here to anyone. The owners were great as well, always prompt with any information we needed and very friendly.
Wonderful Place to stay in Edinburgh
My husband, son and I just spent a wonderful week in Edinburgh staying at the Marchmont flat. It was a beautiful location, close to the Meadows and an easy walk to downtown. There was a delightful bakery around the corner as well as a fish and chip shop and several pubs and grocery stores. The apartment was clean and comfortable with old world charm and modern amenities. It was such a pleasure to stay in this beautiful home. The owners were wonderful to work with and we were very happy with our stay. I highly recommend this location.
Lovely, well located base in Edinburgh
The flat in Marchmont Road is an easy walk from the centre of Edinburgh, and very close to the Meadows, so in a green part of the city. The flat is beautifully appointed and really spacious. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook at home. Shops and attractions very near, yet it was very quiet when I stayed. Martin and Weng were very flexible about accommodating my changing arrival time, and any enquiries I had before my stay. Would definitely use the flat again.
Marchmont is a vibrant & free-spirited neighbourhood which is very at ease with itself, being smart but unpretentious - and the young-at-heart will feel instantly comfortable.
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. 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. 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.
