This beautiful, elegantly and very sympathetically refurbished 1st Floor Apartment, offers everything you could want to make your stay in Edinburgh just perfect. The apartment still has original Georgian fireplaces and beautiful corniceing all shown off perfectly by the light streaming through the large Georgian windows.
There is a spacious hall - off which is
: the kitchen/dining which is bright and sunny and well equipped. Off the kitchen is a fully equipped utility room with washing machine, drier and freezer.
: a large double bedroom.
: a lounge with large comfortable leather couch and leather chairs. There is also a large flat screened TV with DVD player.
: Bathroom with bath/shower.
: Twin bedded room with en suite shower.
Due to Cumberland Street being relatively narrow, it is very quiet with very little traffic making it the perfect location for resting after a hectic day in the city.
This note was left on the kitchen table for me:-
This apartment has been a wonderful place to stay. It welcomed us as did Edinburgh - both welcoming and comfortable. You have a beautiful country - I hope to visit again. If or when I do, you will hear from me. I wish you well. Thank you. Terry
I echo Terry's comments. Edinburgh was everything I hoped it would be - and having your apartment to call home made it just perfect (or should I say brilliant!) Thank you. Shirley
Cumberland Street is in the heart of Edinburgh's beautiful Georgian New Town. Due to the wonderful architecture in this area it has been declared a World Heritage Site! The apartment is also surrounded by superb antique shops, art galleries and many other specialist shops, as well as many, many bars and restaurants ranging from traditional to ultra chic.
All this, and you are only a brief 10 minute walk from the very 'up market' George Street followed by Princes Street, both offering everything a shopper could desire as well as many more bars and restaurants. A further fascinating 10 - 15 min walk will take you to the world famous Royal Mile in the Old Town and of course, Edinburgh Castle.
In the apartment, there is a folder which is full of information on things to do, places to see and places to eat and drink. You will NEVER be bored.
Other Activities: Stockbridge is a 5 min walk where there is a superb street market every Sunday which mainly offers delicious foods. Stockbridge also has superb specialist shops offering jewellery, arts and crafts, interior design, flower shops etc - lots of charity shops too if you like a rummage. Also, of course, more bars and restaurants to choose from.
