Welcome to our beautiful newly renovated one-bedroom ground floor flat! It’s ideal not only for couples and business travellers but also families with kids and people with mobility difficulties.
It’s conveniently located in a quiet cobbled mews cul-de-sac with shops, cafes and public transport round the corner. A short walk across the green Meadows takes you to the picturesque Old Town and the city centre beyond. A great base to explore!
*We can also arrange free on-lane parking for one car.

The space
Our self-contained flat has all the conveniences of a modern apartment.
SEPARATE ENTRANCE WITH NO HOUSEHOLD MIXING!!

BEDROOM: The bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed, mirrored wardrobe and a dressing shelf with power points for hair dryer and phone recharging. The velux blinds are remote controlled and there is direct access to the bathroom. The duvet and pillows are anti-allergy and our cleaners place fresh, hotel quality linen and towels on your bed prior to arrival. A travel cot is available too, and also other stuff for toddlers on request.
Check under the right hand side of the sofabed for its linen (usually marked 'D' for double).

BATHROOMS: The bathroom has a large powerful walk in shower with rain head, hand shower and body jets. There is a boiler cupboard with AEG washer-dryer, iron and airing space. We supply hand soap, shower gel and shampoo and conditioner for our guests.

KITCHEN & DINING AREA: The kitchen has a large solid worktop and is fully equipped with top quality appliances including induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge and dish washer. As well as a toaster, kettle and utensils, we supply tea, coffee, sugar and artificial sweetener.

SITTING AREA: In the open plan living area you will find a comfortable corner sofa which turns easily into a full size double bed. (The bed will not be made up on your arrival).The magnetic window shutters are adjustable, and you can open them fully if you prefer.
There are three bar stools round the worktop, with power points conveniently placed for laptop, etc. There is also a table with four chairs for dining.
The wifi router serving the whole flat (password inside lid of bureau) is located below the smart TV, which is on a cantilever bracket so you can angle it for best viewing wherever you are in the kitchen-living room.
There is also direct access to the bathroom.
The flat has good central heating, so you can warm up quickly if you come in after one of Edinburgh's worse weather days (for which there are a couple of umbrellas in the entrance!)

Guest access
Guests have a private entrance and will have sole access to the entire property during their stay.
Let us know in advance if you need the extra facilities available for babies or people with disabilities. It is also useful if you can advise us if you have a car.

Other things to note
PARKING*: Tell us if you're bringing a car. The mews lane is privately owned, and vehicles parking here must display a valid permit at all times. You will find a permit in the entrance hallway. Park in the space in front of doors 9A to 9B. If we're here we'll try and reserve the space with a bollard. Otherwise park somewhere else in the Lane and move back to outside the flat when you can. The extra £80 deposit for car owners is to make sure we get the permit back when you leave! Parking elsewhere in Marchmont is very restricted. There is further information in the flat.
To protect children and pets living on the lane, there is a speed limit of 10 mph. The Lane is a cul-de-sac. Turning round is easier at the end where there is a 'no-parking' area.
ARE YOU A GOLFER?
There is a trolley and set of Wilson clubs available in the flat. £5 per day. Pop the money through the owner's letterbox!

Tony's a retired veterinary surgeon, married for 40 years+ to Caroline, who's an ex-teacher with a sense of humour and a lot of patience! We've worked in England, Botswana, Hong Kong and New Zealand and are starting to enjoy what we hope will be a long and happy retirement in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Tony plays the viola in the Really Terrible Orchestra and Caroline sings in the Phoenix Community Choir. He's taking lessons in car mechanics and she's taking lessons in portraiture. If you get into political discussion with us, you're fairly safe expressing any opinion as one of us will probably agree with you. Our views are usually diametrically opposed and we regularly cancel out each other's vote! We both enjoy travelling and meeting people from different cultures. Caroline speaks fairly fluent French and can pretty much get by in Spanish & German. Tony's attempts at telling jokes in French sometimes mystify our French friends, but get a polite laugh one way or the other. We have three adult children and three baby grandchildren, of whom Caroline will show innumerable photos if given half a chance, so Tony advises avoiding the subject at all costs. We look forward very much to meeting you!
