Royal Mile. Parking space nearby. We are delighted to offer you this comfortable and well presented one bedroom self catering holiday apartment situated in a historic Grade A listed building overlooking the Royal Mile, directly opposite St Giles Cathedral. The building in which our apartment is situated has an interesting past, with parts of the building dating back to1590. A full restoration of the building was carried out in 1985 by Historic Scotland. Advocate's Close is one of Edinburgh's most atmospheric and photographed closes with views through to the Scott Monument on Princes Street. The apartment is on the first floor and is quite unique in that you can enter the apartment from either the traditional Edinburgh communal stairwell off Advocate's Close or alternatively by its own private entrance directly from the Royal Mile at 357 High Street. Along with the steps at the private entrance, the four window seats to the front of the apartment make wonderful places to sit and watch the bustle of the Royal Mile below. The comfortable sittingroom with dining table has a digital television with Freeview, DVD player and a CD / radio / cassette player. The fully-fitted and newly equipped kitchen has an electric hob and oven, fridge / freezer, washer / drier, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, iron and microwave. The fully-tiled bathroom has an electric shower over the bath. The sleeping accommodation comprises one bedroom with a double bed. A double sofa-bed in the sitting room extends the sleeping capacity to four. The property's flexibility is augmented by an additional fold-away single bed. Wireless Internet broadband is provided (bring your own laptop). The apartment is tastefully furnished with quality furniture. Full bedding and towels are provided. The property is all electric with controllable panel heating. The owners provide a complimentary welcome basket of a bottle of wine, coffee, tea, sugar, milk and biscuits. More
