The Old Bakery is a beautifully presented two-bedroom mews cottage with its own private entrance and tucked away in the quiet, ever-popular area of Dean Village and perfectly located to explore Edinburgh. Situated just ten minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street, you can enjoy the best of both worlds, as guests find the Dean Village, a beautiful oasis nestled close to the beautiful water of Leith.
This stunning executive two-bedroom apartment boasts contemporary interiors and has been lovingly put together with personal touches throughout. The very generous living and dining area is decorated with a chic palette, and has ample seating with two comfy sofas, and lavished with all the little comforts to get you feeling right at home. Your entertainment needs are taken care of with a Smart TV, complimentary WiFi, board games and puzzles.
To the back of the living area is the uber-sophisticated kitchen where you’ll find all the mod cons the discerning traveller needs – there’s also a breakfast bar featuring a trendy pass-through to the dining area. Integrated appliances include an oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer.
The indulgence continues, with two sizeable double bedrooms inviting you in for a soothing night’s sleep, both with plush carpeting and decorated in calming, neutral tones. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the other has twin beds. Both have plentiful storage with built-in wardrobes. A stylish, large shower room completes this fabulous holiday home.

Just a short 10-minute walk, you can find Edinburgh's famous Princes Street with its spectacular castle views, beautiful gardens, and plenty of shopping opportunities. Alternatively, you can walk along George Street with its designer shops during the day (including Harvey Nichols Department Store) and at night its wide variety of stylish bars and restaurants.
And you’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do in the local area… You can browse exhibitions in the Dean Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (both practically on your doorstep), and enjoy a beautiful walk along the Water of Leith, close to the apartment. Here you'll find a cycle path too, with the route stretching for just over 12 miles from Balerno to Leith alongside the river. It's a flat path, ideal for cyclists looking for an easy ride, or walkers after a waterside stroll. Along the way, there are lots of pretty waterfalls and weirs with wildlife such as herons to look out for.
The beloved area of Stockbridge is an easy walk from the apartment and well worth exploring. You'll uncover a treasure-trove of shops, quirky boutiques, independent restaurants and cafes - perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch and a great spot for people-watching.
