Property code: E901A

A stunning 2 bedroom townhouse set over three floors with private parking. The local area has a selection of shops, bakeries/delis, coffee shops, wine bars and restaurants. Train station less than 1 mile away.

With a gorgeous exterior and rooms that are sweetly decorated and modern,

this elegant Edinburgh townhouse could be the perfect home for you as you explore this fascinating and historic city. And the best bit is, it’s situated right on the edge of the most vibrant part of town.

The property is set over three levels. The rooms offer cosy retreats - each is decorated in a warm and inviting style, with smart layouts and storage, so you can enjoy making this space your own.

Step into the lounge, the friendly heart of the property. With snug armchairs, a sofa, and plenty of entertainment in the form of TV, DVD, and Hi-Fi station, this will be the place you gravitate to relax after a long day of exploring the city. Down a small set of five steps is the kitchen. It’s a charming space, with all the modern conveniences you need for self-catering meals, and a bistro-style table with stools so you can enjoy eating together and chatting about tomorrow’s plans.

Head upstairs, past the lovely Juliet balcony on the landing, to find your bedrooms. First, the master is a light, bright double room, comfy and cosy with great storage and pretty pops of colour. There’s also a single bedroom perfect for giving a younger guest of up to 12 years their very own holiday space.

And, outside the property, private parking is a huge benefit in this central part of the city.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The townhouse is located just metres from the bustling centre of Edinburgh. Head onto the main shopping hubs of Princes Street and George Street and get lost in all the high street stores, independent boutiques, gift shops, and traditional Scottish tartan and whisky traders. There are endless places to eat and drink along these streets, not to mention historical sites to discover, like the graveyard that inspired J.K. Rowling's spookiest characters and the Scott Monument, an impressive gothic structure dedicated to Scottish writer, Sir Walter Scott.

Edinburgh is a stunningly festive city, with the renowned Fringe Festival rolling in every August, bringing unknown and celebrity acts to perform at hallowed venues in all parts of town. Of course, there's plenty within its bounds to keep you entertained for decades, but if you fancy a jaunt outside the city, head east to the characterful seaside town of Portobello, 4 miles away, with its sandy beach, seafood haunts, and great dog walks.

You could even take a day trip north-west into the Highlands, and explore the Munros, valleys, and lochs of rural Scotland. Or, experience another amazing Scottish city with a different vibe, Glasgow, just a 47-mile drive or train ride away.

A wonderful location for the centre, shops and cinema. Neatly laid out with all necessary appliances and facilities. Eating at the tiny table in the kitchen was not ideal for big people but not a problem if you were mainly eating out and did not mind eating breakfast at different times.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
