Mapmakers Townhouse @ Newington

Historic Edinburgh property transformed into modern day luxury living. Free parking.

Description

Welcome to the Mapmakers Townhouse, where fascinating Edinburgh history and imposing architecture meets modern luxury, space, light and attention to detail.

Lovingly renovated by the owner who has “poured his heart in to it and has thought of every single detail to make our experience a fantastic one”.

For history buffs, this townhouse’s credentials are second to none, for it once formed part of the impressive premises of the famous Bartholomew Mapmakers firm, situated in Duncan Street from 1911 – 1995. Skilled craftsmen and women worked within the light filled and spacious building to produce world famous maps, maintaining Bartholomew’s reputation as one of Scotland's most influential map making firms.

This property has FREE parking which is rare bonus within Edinburgh.

A well-behaved dog might be considered, at additional cost of £30 per booking.

Location

Directions

However you choose to arrive please do make sure that you have spoken to the 'property manager' to arrange a time to meet you at the property on arrival as there is no reception area or onsite staff to assist you if you arrive without notice.

- Executive Car transfer
Wanting to arrive in style and relax after your fight. The Edinburgh Address can organise a transfer in a luxury Mercedes for up to 8 guests for £57.00.

Great service.

Excellent accommodation, with good parking. The light in the open plan sitting/dining room is to die for - we were so lucky as we visited during the unseasonably warm spell in February. Great communications with the caretaker, who met us and showed us round on arrival. We are definitely returning!

First, we had a fabulous apartment—luminous, stylish, and very well fitted. Service was responsive and attentive. Our nearly two weeks was wonderful. we wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely.

Product

This is a beautiful, light-filled apartment with plenty of room and every amenity one could wish. We liked the location—close to very good gastro pubs, parks, and shops but just far enough away from the tourist area to be peaceful.

Our response

Dear guest,

Our stay was great. Townhouse was perfect for us, our son and my parents. Very comfy beds! Had everything we needed. Great location, great wifi, nicely decorated. We had a rental car so the parking was great. Property manager and owner were both very responsive. Enjoyed being close to Holyrood Park.

See my other note. Propert was great!

Guestbook reviews

Friends and I stayed at The Mapmaker's House and found it an ideal venue for our
reunion. It is ideally situated on a quiet residential road very close to a bus
route and a small supermarket. There are also many excellent restaurants nearby, some
within walking distance. The centre of Edinburgh can be reached easily by bus but to walk is
much more enjoyable and passes many interesting, historical areas and sites. The apartment
is very light and airy, beautifully furnished to a very high standard and very well equipped and has
the added advantage of secure private parking. Our stay at the House was a great success
and enjoyed by all and we highly recommend this property but possibly not for those who find
stairs a problem."

Thank you very much for all the help you gave us at The Edinburgh Address and for the return in
full of the breakage deposit. The Apartment was an ideal base for our reunion and having the
car with us meant we were able to travel further afield rather than just focus on the centre of
Edinburgh.
