Welcome to 'Castlefoot'

The owners of this apartment have put a great deal of thought into ensuring that your stay in King's Stables Road is thoroughly enjoyable. The location is absolutely brilliant, just a minute of so from the Grassmarket, so the choice of things to do and see on the doorstep is endless.

The sitting room has a comfy sofa for relaxing after a day's exploration and there is a fire for those cosy winter evenings. The dining table can seat 4 and there are books and games for your enjoyment. The kitchen is small but well thought out and is incredibly well equipped if you'd like to cook at home. The bedroom is a generous size and located off the sitting room. It is so peaceful and there's lots of hanging space. It is decorated with accents of green. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. WiFi is available for guests' use.

This is a popular home from home that guests enjoy staying in.

This property can be booked for multiples of one week or a full month during the Festival. 

This self catering apartment is available for holiday lets, short term and corporate lets, city and weekend breaks and as Edinburgh Festival accommodation.

Home Truths

Home Truth

There is building work being carried out in the vicinity by contractors that are only operating during working hours (8am to 7pm). We are glad to report they are producing remarkably little dust. The site is actively monitored by CCTV outside working hours. However, as a result of this a 20% discount is being applied to bookings of any length until further notice.

Parking is also restricted in the street for the time being but there is a large multi-storey car park towards the Lothian Road end of King's Stables Road.

Also, this home couldn't be more central. You are in the middle of the action with lots of bars and restaurants on your doorstep, so do expect a certain level of noise.

Over the Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this property.

Dickins Cancellation Policy

24 hour cool-off period: Providing you book more than fourteen days before the start of your stay, you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of making it and we will refund 100% of any charges.

Cancelling after the booking is confirmed: Once a confirmation of booking has been issued to you via email by Dickins, you are responsible for the total price detailed. If you need to cancel, Dickins will try to relet the period for you and if they are successful, you will be reimbursed with the value of the relet less a £75 + VAT charge. If they are not able to relet the period, you will be responsible for the full rental cost. It may be a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance which covers cancellation.
