About this listing

If you're the type of person that likes a large, cosy flat in the best area of Glasgow, then this is the place for you. Ideally located close to all amenities & easy transport links. A beautiful flat with lots of character!

The space

Traditional tenement flat with private garden and main door access. The flat is only two miles from Glasgow’s city center and barely a stone’s throw from the buzz of Byres Road with its independent shops, and stylish restaurants, bars, delis and cafes.

The flat is situated on a quiet street in the heart of Glasgow's West end. The Botanic Gardens are just around the corner, where it takes 2 minutes to get down to the riverside footpath which takes you to the Kelvingrove Museum in 15 minutes and then most of the way into the City center.

Although there is free on street parking outside the flat, public transport connections are excellent with Hillhead Subway Station (Glasgow's equivalent of the London tube system) less than 2 minutes’ walk away (8 minute transit to/from the city centre). Numerous buses also operate from early until late from a bus stop at the end of the street. And there are always taxis waiting on Byres Road.

The quirky Finnieston area with its excellent independent bars, restaurants and late night cafes, is definitely the new place to be and it’s only a 10 minute walk away.

The lounge is large and bright with timber sash & case windows overlooking the courtyard area, timber floors and chesterfield sofas. The lounge also has an original fireplace with an open fire (fuel provided for the winter nights).

The kitchen has a traditional bay window, a washer, large oven, family sized kitchen table (table comfortably seats 4, but can extend to 6) and a comfy seating area in front of the bay window to sit and enjoy your morning coffee.

Off the main hall there is a family bathroom with mains shower and bath. There is a large bookshelf in the hall with plenty to choose from and loads of board games.

The Master bedroom has an Victorian double brass bed, lots of storage and a lovely en-suite bathroom with shower over. Fresh bedding and towels are provided as standard.

The second bedroom is large, has a double bed, timber floors, lots of storage and an original singer sewing machine as the dressing table.

There is a small private courtyard garden to the front of the property, where you can sit and enjoy the morning sun or a glass of wine on the warmer evening’s .The flat is accessed via its own private entrance off the courtyard area. The courtyard is a sun trap in the summer

As I mentioned the apartment is traditional but our style is eclectic. The decor is stylish with a warm, relaxed feel and is very much a home from home. It's certainly not a show home and much of our furniture is vintage/retro so there are some imperfections, but it is a fantastic
enjoyable space in an equally fantastic location. We really do hope you enjoy staying here as much as we enjoy living here!

We had a wonderful stay at Emma's flat in Glasgow. The flat is wonderful, bright and very spacious. The photos don't do it enough justice! Check-in was very easy, and we had everything we needed for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Communication with Emma was very good, and we felt at home immediately. The neighbourhood is brilliant. Byres rd has a lot to offer, and it is so easy to get around. We didn't want to leave!

I stayed with my ten month old son in Emma's place for a few days. The flat was beautiful and much bigger than it seems in the pictures! Unfortunately my son came down with gastroenteritis on our second night and we had to go home to go to hospital. So a more chaotic experience then I'd hoped for but no reflection on Emma, who couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. Really great communication, a very understanding host!

From the get go communication with Emma was great which made our booking and arrival stress free. The location is 2 minutes from Hillhead subway station and 1 minute from various pubs, shops and restaurants. The flat is a gorgeous Victorian tenement and is absolutely huge. Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic stay in this beautiful flat full of character and style. Perfectly located to enjoy all the West end has to offer and easy access to the city centre. Emma couldn't have been a better host, friendly, helpful and flaexible. Just wish I could have stayed longer. 5 stars!

I had a great stay at Emma's West End Garden Apartment and would happily go back. Emma was helpful and gracious. The booking was easy, as was getting and returning the key. The flat was clean and spacious and had all the listed amenities. It is right off the main road, so close to everything, but was quiet at night. All the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, the water pressure (sometimes an issue in British flats) is strong, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the wifi is strong. The decor is eclectic and interesting - definitely not Ikea. It's a great find in the vibrant West End.
