Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Light and spacious, lovely garden flat in a rare spot looking right onto the private nurseries of Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Gardens. Contemporary furnishings, newly updated and very well kitted out - ideal for Stockbridge restaurants and boutique shops, Water of Leith, pretty location just a short walk to the city centre, choice of buses also nearby.

The space
Apartment right on Edinburgh City's famous Royal Botanic Gardens and part of a beautiful listed building, formerly owned by Edinburgh College of Art. Access is down a stone staircase to garden level: the street is very wide and the garden allows light to come in from every angle so the accommodation is light and airy. Pale timber floors throughout and modern furnishings give it a clean, contemporary feel, with a bright colourway in the living and kitchen area, and, in the bedrooms, cosy throws and cushions from Scottish designer Anta.

The apartment looks right onto the Botanic nursery: the only people you'll see are the gardeners looking after the plants. It's furnished with all mod cons: a coffee machine, aeroccino, ice for your tipple, a whizzer for smoothies and we especially love the front terrace where we have a table and chairs for an apéritif or lazy breakfast on a sunny morning.

Location: walkable home from Edinburgh's hip Stockbridge with its small indy shops, bars and restaurants. Inverleith Park's very close by for a morning run. Waitrose supermarket is also within a few minutes' walking distance for OJ, crusty sourdough and wicked, buttery croissants, or you can take a detour via the Water of Leith walkway and pick up a coffee and warm cinnamon rolls at Söderberg on Deanshaugh.

Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

The home is on a uniquely wide and bright avenue just five minutes from the park, or a short stroll from animated Stockbridge. We are bang on the Botanic gardens, which has spectacular shows especially at Christmas. Lots of restaurants and cafés within short walkable distance, and we walk 25/30min to theatres, galleries and the main stores as well. If you want to venture further you can always get buses, taxis, trams and trains – but we're just far enough outside the busy central zone to be a quiet and relaxing getaway.

Bring a car and you can always park on our spacious residential street, then you can drive out for day trips to lochs, to St Andrews (ask us about our cottages), Stirling, Glasgow, Perth or up into the Highlands.

I've travelled a lot in my work as a freelance writer and out of it. We moved to St Andrews in Scotland from my last stop (Amsterdam NL) for the rugged scenery, the beaches, the Scottish way of life (yes, times have changed and you can get *great* food here) and for the poetry. It's beautiful here: bring a sweater. And for what it's worth, I *never* say 'hey, I'm Claudia'.
