A Book Lover's Dream

Decorated in a traditional style, this charming second floor apartment has homely, almost cottage-like, feel. Located on St Stephen Street, there are brilliant restaurants, cafes and boutiques on the doorstep and the fab Sunday Stockbridge market is just at the end of the street.

The sitting room is pretty with plenty of light, lots of comfy seating, a dining table, an electric piano and bookcases crammed full with interesting books. The master bedroom is a peaceful, large room with a desk study area and a small, but cosy, single bedroom is perfect for a child or an occasional guest.

The well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast table overlooking a pretty garden view and the bathroom has a shower over the bath. The apartment has WiFi.   

This gorgeous Stockbridge apartment is available for weekly bookings throughout 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

The single bedroom is small, but very sweet. It is accessed off the kitchen and the master bedroom, so perfect if you have a child.
