This delightful newly renovated apartment is a historic gem within Riddle's Court, a 16th century merchant's house on the Royal Mile. The bedroom, with its painted beams, was once the location of a dinner party hosted by King James VI of Scotland. It is now a bright, warm and comfortable flat with a tasteful mix of traditional and modern furnishings. It is 2 minutes from Edinburgh Castle and is surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes and bars and is close to trains, buses and trams.

The space
The flat is managed by the Scottish Historic Buildings Trust. The Trust is a charity that secures the future of under-used historic buildings across Scotland by expertly restoring them for the nation and finding new uses that can regenerate local communities and the historic environment. This is a truly unique chance to stay in a building steeped in over 400 years of history.

The flat is located just off the Royal Mile, in the heart of everything, yet tucked away off a tranquil courtyard. All of the city's attractions are within easy walking distance.

The flat has a spacious living/dining area with a sofa bed that converts into a comfortable double bed. The modern kitchen opens up directly onto the living space and includes modern appliances such as a hob, an oven, a kettle, a toaster, etc. All you need to prepare a delicious meal. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed with plenty of space for your personal belongings and benefits from impressive original historic features. My cleaners place fresh, hotel-quality linen and towels on your bed prior to arrival. The modern bathroom can be accessed through a door near the kitchen.
