Description from owner

Description

This charming 2 bedroom apartment is situated on the first floor of a Georgian building in Edinburgh's celebrated New Town. Cumberland Street is a delightful, quiet little street within very easy walking distance of Princes Street and the city centre, as well as the magnificent Royal Botanic Gardens and the delightful (and less expensive) Stockbridge area with its wide range of bars, restaurants, galleries, boutiques and delicatessens. The property provides an ideal base from which to explore the most attractive features of Edinburgh.

The kitchen / living room faces the front of the apartment and has been recently refurbished to offer an attractive and convenient space with plenty of light. A comfortable leather sofa and 2 chairs are arranged around the fire place with a coal effect electric stove. In the sitting area, an old pine table with 2 chairs and a church pew makes a lovely spot in which to enjoy a meal.

The modern kitchen area is well equipped with a ceramic hob and electric oven, a microwave, toaster, dishwasher and washing machine as well as ample cookware, china cutlery and glass for those wishing to cook at home. TV / DVD and free WiFi are provided.

The apartment offers two light and pretty double bedrooms both furnished with double beds, bed side tables and lamps. Ample hanging space for both rooms is provided in a large walk in cupboard off the hallway. A modern shower room with walk-in shower and toilet area completes the accommodation.

The property is one of 6 apartments in a family-friendly block. It is ideal for couples, families or groups of friends.

The local area also has a strong literary tradition. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who created Sherlock Holmes, was born a few streets away, while Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, grew up close by. Moreover, JM Barrie lived opposite while he was a student at Edinburgh University and before he went on to write Peter Pan. He undertook some of his early writing while sitting in the window overlooking our flat.

Please note that we cannot accept any hen or stag parties. We also require one of the guests to be 25 or over.
