Be at the very heart of Edinburgh’s vibrant, historic Old Town in this stunningly located 3 bedroom property. A mere five minutes walk to Edinburgh Castle, a visit to the Fleshmarket Close Residence will leave you feeling like a pampered Royal in no time. Nestled between boutique-filled Cockburn Street and Market Street, this 1st floor apartment is truly THE place to be for exploring Edinburgh by foot. Sleeping up to 5 guests in classic, elegant style, the Fleshmarket Close Residence is lovingly designed to ensure that your Scottish adventure will be one to remember.
A spacious and delightfully cozy livingroom awaits weary travellers, and we invite you to put your feet up and sink into a soft leather sofa. Large sash windows provide stunning views over North Bridge, and characteristically Edinburgh-style high ceilings give the space a delightfully airy feel, perfect for padding around in your pyjamas while you plan your next expedition into the nooks and closes of the Old Town. The open plan living space also features a dining area to sleep six, so whether you’re sitting down for a family breakfast or grabbing a quick bite before heading to a good old fashioned British pub, you’ll be well accommodated. We all know that the joy of a self catered holiday is the sense of freedom to do as you wish, and you’ll certainly feel right at home at the Fleshmarket Close. A wonderfully spacious kitchen area nestles to the far end of the living area, with stylish brick effect decor and gleaming white cabinets. There’s plenty of space for everyone to give you a hand with the cooking, and the kitchen features all the mod-cons needed for a relaxing break, including a dishwasher, oven, toaster and kettle.
When it’s time to nestle under the covers after a long day seeing all the delights Edinburgh has to offer, lay your head down in one of the Fleshmarket Close’s 3 bedrooms. Choose between two handsome doubles (one with ensuite) or a cosy single, and let yourself drift off to the land of nod. A wonderfully soft dove grey carpet and warm wood furnishings give the bedrooms an air of quiet serenity, and we hope you’ll have nothing but sweet dreams. Please note that there is a pub beneath the property, and so we cannot guarantee silence, but we can assure you that being in the centre of Scotland’s most exciting city is well worth any occasional disturbance. As well as a luxurious ensuite shower room, this property features a sleek and modern family bathroom. Whether you’d like to rest your tired muscles with a long soak after a busy day or have a hot morning shower to energize you for the day ahead, do it in style in this stunning room of enticing modern angles and sparkling chrome.
We’ve already mentioned the simply fabulous location of this property, but it truly does bear repeating. Newcomers and returning visitors to Edinburgh all covet the same thing - to be as close to the action as possible; to be a stone’s throw from the castle, the Royal Mile and Princes Street. This property delivers on all accounts. Walk a mere five minutes to explore stunning Edinburgh Castle, take a short jaunt down the road to meet the delights of the Royal Mile, or be in Princes Street before you know it! Nearby Cockburn Street is a treasure trove of vintage boutiques and quaint restaurants, so why not dip through the nearest close and see what surprises await you. If you’d like to head further afield, Edinburgh Waverley Train Station is a hop, skip and a jig away, and North Bridge is extremely well served by Edinburgh’s efficient bus service. Edinburgh’s fabulous hop on/hop off bus tour also stops nearby, and we’d definitely recommend seeing the historic city from a vintage doubledecker!
