The apartment is located in the quaint, popular area of Stockbridge, a place with its own atmosphere and intrigue but close to the heart of Edinburgh's more well-known streets. Just a hundred metres from the apartment sits the main street of the neighbourhood, where traditional pubs, hip eateries, and independent shops are just some of the attractions on offer.

You could also take the scenic route and stroll beside the Water of Leith, through Inverleith Park. Here, you'll find fascinating extra delights like a duck pond and the popular natural spot of the Royal Botanic Garden, with indoor and outdoor displays, manicured and wild gardens, and lovely places to eat and drink. If walking is your thing, you can continue following the Water of Leith and discover a trail of hidden walking and cycling paths that extend around the city, even taking you up to the seaside and port communities of Leith and Newhaven.

Once you've befriended the Stockbridge locals, head into the heart of the city. Princes Street, Edinburgh's mammoth shopping road, begins just 1.5 miles away. From here, you can check out the stunning historical landmarks that are scattered across the city, including the Scott Monument, the Royal Mile, and Edinburgh Castle.

We loved the apartment in Stockbridge. It was in a great location of Edinburgh, great village atmosphere, close to good restaurants, pubs and shopping for supplies. And only an easy walk into the New and Old towns. Well equipped kitchen and great wi-fi.

The flat is ideally located for the Royal Botanic Gardens and is also far enough away from the City centre to avoid the hustle and bustle of the area. However it would be useful to know in advance that the walk into the City Centre is up hill and may not be suitable for some people.

A great flat for an Edinburgh-centric city break and ideally positioned for Stockbridge and bus links into the centre. Be patient if driving to the flat, and you will get a parking space. Use public transport whilst you are there. Plenty of eateries in the vicinity and a couple of supermarkets if you want to self-cater (the flat has a well appointeRead mored kitchen). Hide

The apartment is well kept and very clean. There was very good communication and interaction with the service which oversees the guests. The size is just right for a couple who would be comfortable. The location in the lovely community of Stockbridge is just right. A lovely section of Edinburgh with easy access to New Town and Old Town either by foRead moreot or public transit. The Sunday market was a wonderful surprise and there are numerous shops and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Hide

A lovely little apartment with everything you could possibly need, including a washing machine. Very clean, with personal touches that make it feel really homely. In a fantastic location; a stones throw away from a street of shops, and a 15 minute walk from the castle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

I loved my stay in the flat and will be staying there again in the future.

Excellent location with everything we needed. Had misunderstood limited parking meant there may/may not be spaces, thought it meant the parking was for limited periods of time. From Tuesday onwards we were able to park behind the property, it would appear that the parking just under the archway is permanently occupied by cars which are never moved.Read more Very good bus service, local shops and eating places in easy walking distance. Also an added bonus of The Grange Cricket Ground 5 minutes walk. Hide
