Townhouse -
7 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 28
Edinburgh, Scotland
CITY CENTRE, SPACIOUS, FAMILY HOUSE Our three storey, unpretentious, townhouse is elegant and furnished mostly with antique furniture and some nice art pieces. We are very nicely situated on a corner facing a church, and quite close to the centre. It works well for parties of 7 to 20 guests, and up to 28 if sharing the large beds. The house is set up with a mix of large beds, singles and bunks, but bed arrangements are flexible by arrangement. There is a bathroom on each floor, a lovely living room with a grand piano, a large dining room, a front garden and a back patio. The 1860 house is homely and full of character.

Management response:

It was very easy to communicate with Andy prior to the group arriving. The group leaders and the young adults were very well mannered and responsible, handing the house back in very good order. I would highly recommend Andy to any future owner..

Although not stayed at the property, had very good information and correspondence from Peter (the owner). He was quick, efficient and helpful. Should I need this property I would be more than happy to stay there based on my experience.

About the neighbourhood
Edinburgh is near the sea and built on seven hills. It is possible to get a good feel for Edinburgh in a day or two. It is not all flat which gives increased character and makes it easier to work out locations. Do not forget to leave some time for travelling around Scotland and always double the time you think a journey should take. Each region has its own character. Scotland has one of the longest coast lines of all the European countries, particularly for its size.
