Edinburgh’s Best-Kept Secret?

The perfect place for a luxurious break in Edinburgh...for less than the cost of an average hotel room. Three beautifully furnished and immaculate apartments – each with exceptional views and oodles of personal charm. Situated in tranquil parkland, and within easy walking distance of Edinburgh city centre and the trendy Leith waterfront.

Relax in your own space throughout the day. Sleep soundly, in the finest bedlinen and on heavenly mattresses, and wake to the peaceful sound of birdsong, not city traffic.


We have never had more attentive, pleasant hosts, or such lovely accommodation.
