Modern and comfortable first-floor flat in central EDINBURGH, Great Britain

UK only for 2014. Situated in the heart of Edinburgh, our home is very comfortable. Our modern, first-floor flat is only one of six. At present it can accommodate three adults. To the front is our lounge, and a single bedroom, both overlooking Leamington Terrace. Our rooms at the rear overlook the neighbouring gardens. We have a sunny, west-facing kitchen/diner and an en-suite bedroom (step-in shower, king-size bed). The integral utility room houses our laundry facilities, while our integral main bathroom has a shower over the bath. We have a small study with PC, printer etc. Our heating is gas-fired underfloor and very effective.
Located in the Bruntsfield area of Scotland's Capital city, we have plenty of green space close by (such as Bruntsfield Links), yet a great range of cafes and restaurants. It is easy to explore Edinburgh and its beautiful surroundings from our home, either on foot or by public transport. We are only 12 minutes' walk from Edinburgh city centre and 15/18 minutes' walk from Edinburgh Castle. A range of cinemas, theatres, museums, art galleries and attractions are within easy walking distance.
Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano (a site of special scientific interest) and rises above the city to a height of 250m, providing excellent panoramic views and beautiful walks. This is around 25/30 minutes' walk from our home (or 5 minutes by taxi).
There is good public transport both within the city and beyond - to the Pentland Hills, to the East Lothian coastline or to other major cities. We are around 4.5 hours from London by train, with ample internal flights. Edinburgh Airport is a mere 20 minutes by taxi.

We are especially open to short breaks within the UK with reasonable notice as we both work part-time. We look forward to hearing from Intervac friends.

About Our Family

While we both still work part-time, we are always keen on breaks (around 5 days to two weeks) within GB with reasonable notice, and especially in South Devon, Cornwall and Dorset.
