Visited by Tripadvisor
Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
This charming 2 bedroom apartment is situated on the first floor of a Georgian building in Edinburgh's celebrated New Town.

About the neighbourhood
Edinburgh's historic New Town is certainly not 'new'. Building began in 1765 and in the years that followed it became known throughout the world as a masterpiece of city planning. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but remains a thriving community packed with houses, shops, restaurants and bars. Thankfully, the area retains almost all of the original neo-classical and Georgian period architecture.

Cumberland Street is a delightful, quiet little street in the heart of the New Town and in easy walking distance of Princes Street and the city centre, as well as the Bohemian Stockbridge area with its range of bars, restaurants, galleries, boutiques and delicatessens. The property provides an ideal base from which to explore a truly wonderful city.
