Are you planning a visit to Edinburgh this year?
We have a home away from home waiting for you!
Located in Edinburgh’s sought after West End, Chester Street is very impressive with stunning architecture and wide Georgian streets. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to Princes Street from this beautiful home and nearby you’ll find a lovely range of charming independent boutiques, cafés, and pubs. You can walk anywhere in central Edinburgh easily and the tram is very close by too.
Our home on Chester Street is stylish and very spacious. There are white walls, plantation shutters, and beautiful oak chevron flooring. The living space is a lovely large room with comfy leather sofas, a TV with Netflix, a dining table to seat six, and a beautiful kitchen which is well-equipped for guests who want to cook and dine at home.
