The Cornwall Street Residence


Get a feel for the royal life in this elegant property in the heart of the Old Town. The Cornwall Street Residence is a stunning ground floor apartment, designed by Sir James Gowans in 1868. Sleeping up to 5 pampered guests, this property guarantees you’ll be the envy of all your subjects!

Waltz through the striking townhouse entry lobby to find a lounge space which features typically Edinburgh high ceilings and striking decor which marries comfort with vintage glamour. Candelabra-style lighting, a lovingly restored fireplace and grand ornate windows lend the room an air of class and sophistication. A large dining table features room for 5 famished dinner guests, so invite your most fascinating dinner companions and enjoy a meal fit for a queen. This property’s kitchen is a sheer delight for any budding chefs; decorated in the same careful style, and featuring all the mod-cons one would expect in such a pedigree property (including coffee machine and dishwasher), this kitchen even features a charming loveseat bench.

When the night draws in, choose between two large, sumptuously decorated double bedrooms, Complimentary slippers and bathrobes (for longer stays) are treats you definitely deserve after a long day of discoveries. If you’d like to accommodate a fifth guest, single fold-out bed can be provided. A chic family bathroom completes this fantastic property, defined by a uniquely stylish bathroom suite. Of course, bathing at the Cornwall Street is no ordinary affair. Towels provided are sumptuous Egyptian cotton and toiletries are provided just for you by Scottish Fine Soaps.

The local area is Edinburgh’s unique Old Town which is the beating heart of Scotland’s vibrant capital. Within walking distance to Princes Street and a short stroll from Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town is home to some of Scotland's most popular attractions, including the Scott Monument and the Royal Mile. The Cornwall Street Residence sits just at the foot of the Castle Rock, so you can watch the sunset over the castle. The area is well serviced by Edinburgh’s efficient Lothian Bus service.
