Susan and Allan: we live in the Scottish Borders but wanted to have a home in Edinburgh. We have family who reside in Edinburgh that we visit frequently. The apartment is ideally placed to get the most from a holiday in Edinburgh. We hope that guests will find the comfortable accommodation as much of a pleasure to stay in as we do.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Owner chose Stockbridge
We had been searching for three years for an apartment in the heart of Edinburgh that would be ideal for us to use and to holiday let. The apartment has been fully refurbished.The property is superbly located in the Dean area of Edinburgh, which runs alongside the Water of Leith and lies just a few minutes walk from the retail and commercial heart of Edinburgh. The apartment enjoys all the benefits city living has to offer with restaurants, bistros and shops located in nearby vicinity. There is no need for a car as main bus routes are close by that cover most parts of the town and surrounding areas. Neighbouring Stockbridge, just a ten minute walk beside the water of Leith, also provides further local shopping and a Waitrose supermarket.
What makes this Apartment unique
Dean village is a tranquil green oasis only five minutes from Princes Street. Dean is located in a conservation area which forms part of Edinburgh World Heritage Sites The apartment is part of an historic mill conversion.

September and October in Edinburgh
After a long day of traveling, by ferry,bus and train, it was a very welcome relief to arrive late at night at our flat. Susan’s instructions to get into the building and flat were perfect, no problem at all. We were ecstatic to walk into such a fabulous flat. It has everything you need for an extended stay, as well as a short visit. The beds are a dream. Kitchen very well outfitted for cooking in. Upon rising the next morning, an having a cup of tea, we set out to explore. What a surprise! Picturesque! Our building is sitting right on the bridge over the River Leigh, with the River Leigh walk along it, which is a beautiful walk. Or go up the hill and it’s short 10-15 minute walk into the city center. Along the way there are plenty of bus stops, and cabs if you need to explore further out. We found it to be the perfect spot to explore from. Close to shopping, pubs/ restaurants, cultural activities, Waverly train station, and strolling along the Royal Mile. Susan was most helpful, made sure we were comfortable. My daughters travel plans were impacted by the storm, Callum, and she had to reschedule her train trip to London. Susan was very accommodating, and allowed her a little extra time that morning we were to leave, very kind. We were sad to leave, we definitely will come back next time we are in Edinburgh.
It was cozy, attractive, and every detail one might need was carefully thought through and included.
The experience was first rate and the neighborhood charming and easily accessible on foot while being just beyond the tourist crush.
We have used many VRBO homes, and this one was outstanding! Clean and well thought out to accommodate travelers. Location in Deans Village was ideal. The owners obviously take great care in this home. Can’t think of a single negative comment to make...
Great place in a picturesque location.
This flat is a great little find just outside the congestion of the old town. The setting in Dean Village is beautiful and quiet. We are a family of 3 with a child under 10 and it worked out very well for us and the walk to the Royal Mile is typical of our previous European experiences when you want to stay just outside of it all.
The flat is well appointed with everything we needed. There are plenty of dining options around as well that can take you away from all the other tourists on the Mile.
Susan was fantastic. Always attentive to my messages and the check in instructions are easy and flawless.
We would stay again if our travels find us back in Edinburgh.
Superb location, immaculate and had everything we needed.
It was in an ideal location to get around Edinburgh. 7 mins walk to the tram at West End. The family day ticket was excellent allowed us to use the trams and buses all day..mind you walking around allows you to really get a feel of the city. The apartment was very quiet and it had everything plus more that we needed.
It was immaculate inside, and we would definitely go back. Dean village is stunning in itself. Suited us as a family. We found the nearest supermarket on foot was Tesco Express at the West end -(Near House of Fraser) and a bit further out of Dean village was Waitrose. There is so much to do in Edinburgh, so to have a fabulous apartment to return to at the end of a tired day was such a bonus. Thank you Susan and Jacqui.
A Quiet, Cheerful, Comfortable Retreat Close to the Royal Mile
This apartment was just as depicted online. It was very clean, comfortable, well appointed, and perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood off the Royal Mile. Not only did we have easy walking access to all of the sights along the Royal Mile but we loved the peaceful wooded trail that ran along the river right outside our door. We felt we had the best of both worlds: peace and quiet every evening away from crowds by day! Our rental car could have been inconvenient to park but fortunately we were in Edinburgh over a weekend when street parking at this location was easy to find. Susan is a very responsive, friendly, and helpful host. We highly recommend this apartment to everyone!
