The Park Apartment (sleeps 3 max)

Uniquely located on the edge of a tranquile park, yet only a short stroll to Edinburgh's city centre and all the main attractions (as well as within walking distance of the fashionable 'Shore' area of Leith - Edinburgh's port - where the Royal Yacht Britanni is berthed), our lovely 2-bedroomed Vacation Home Rental Park Apartment has exclusive access to the Palladian staircase entrance, at the top of which are double oak doors and a small portico south-facing seating area, which is a delicious sunspot overlooking the whole park. On warm days and balmy evenings, you can fling open the doors and relax outside with a book and a glass of wine. Outfitted with a beautiful mix of antique and modern furnishings,

Living-room has lovely leather sofas, a recessed window-seat as well as a dining area just inside the entrance, where you can eat with the doors open - a wonderfully comfortable, sunny room.
