About the home 

This is the home of a lovely family of artists. It is also home to two affectionate ginger cats Freddie and Bertie, who will need to be fed and watered during your stay (food provided!) but will reward you with cuddles and purrs. 

The heart of this home is the wonderful dining kitchen which is very well equipped for dining at home and has a marvellous pantry cupboard. The whole flat has lovely large rooms with high ceilings and architectural features. The sitting room has plenty of comfy seating and a piano. 

There are four bedrooms in total. One has a superking bed, one a 4' double and there are two rooms with bunk beds. All the bunk beds sleep adults comfortably. There is one family bathroom with a shower over the bath and so the apartment is best suited to 5 rather than 7 people. 

There's access to a shared garden. 

This is our only home that comes with resident cats and is going to be the purrfect home from home for feline Festival fans.

Home Truths

Freddie and Bertie, two adorable ginger cats live in this home and will need feeding and looking after during your stay. They have cat flaps to go outside.

There is no TV in this home, but there is good wifi.

Whilst the flat sleeps 7, it may be better suited for 5 as there is just one bathroom.

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.

Old Town

Your New Neighbourhood

The Old Town is so jam packed with things to do, it is hard to describe in a paragraph. For us The Old Town runs from Mound Place and Market Street to Bristo Square and from Lothian Road to The Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, sitting magnificently as it does looking out over the city. It can be seen from miles around. Listen out for the One O’clock gun every day. The massively popular Edinburgh Military Tattoo plays to thousands here each festival. The Camera Obscura will delight both adults and children alike, as will The National Museum of Scotland. Following a major refurbishment, the museum is world class. Greyfriar’s Bobby keeps watch across the road and a wander around the churchyard of Greyfriars Kirk is fascinating and potentially spooky. If you are a sucker for a ghost story, Mary King’s Close is guaranteed to make you scream and there are many ghost tours starting on the High Street. St Giles Cathedral rises magnificently above the Royal Mile and all the closes that run off it are well worth a day exploring. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, The Queen’s Official Residence in Edinburgh, is stunning and sits opposite The Scottish Parliament.
