This charming little pied-a-terre on Cumberland Street is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town. It's ideal for couples, anyone on a business trip or if you are just wanting to have a quiet get away. Its close proximity to local shops, restaurants, bistros, cafes, pubs and attractions means it's in a perfect spot for exploring the city. There is excellent public transport just on Dundas Street, a bus every ten minutes in both directions which takes you straight up to The Royal Mile. However, Princes Street is only a 15 minute walk away.
This cosy apartment is situated on the basement level with a small private patio area to the front. Entrance to the apartment is directly into the welcoming sitting room where there is a small TV with freeview, DVD player and WIFI broadband for anyone working during their stay. The kitchen is small but perfectly formed, with a washing machine, tumble dryer, two ring hob and a microwave convection oven for cooking. There is a good sized bathroom with shower. The pretty tranquil double bedroom is situated at the back of the apartment, which is lovely and peaceful overlooking the mews street of Cumberland St North East Lane.
This self catering apartment is available for holiday lets, short term and corporate lets, city and weekend breaks and as Edinburgh Festival accommodation. Over the Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this property.

Central New Town
The Central New Town spans from Scotland Street in the East to Randolph Crescent in the West and from Princes Street in the South to Brandon Terrace in the North. It encompasses most of Edinburgh’s beautiful and enviable Georgian New Town.
In 1766 James Craig, aged 27, entered a competition to design a New Town to ease overcrowding in the Old Town. There were six entries and he won. His plan was for St Andrew Square and Charlotte Square, Princes Street, George Street and Queen Street and was presented to King George III in 1767. Edinburgh’s New Town is now world famous and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. The Georgian New Town is known for its graceful sweeping crescents, wide streets and private central gardens. The beautiful stone buildings have large astragal windows that we love to peep in on a winters evening to see what lies inside. The architectural details and high ceilings in Edinburgh’s New Town put Bath to shame. The architectural highlights are Charlotte Square, Moray Place and Heriot Row.Read More
