This beautiful self catering apartment occupies the entire ground floor of a charming small townhouse in an excellent location and in one of Edinburgh’s most perfect Georgian Squares. This wonderfully bright drawing room apartment which sleeps four people has a lovely sun catching drawing room with deep window seats and two most relaxing bedrooms and retains all the charms of the Georgian era with a sense of soft décor and luxurious comfort throughout with living flame open fire, working shutters, oak flooring and warm lighting. Virtually next door to the apartment are the glorious Glenogle Baths, restored to their Victorian splendour of 1897 with beautiful heated pool and sauna and open for a morning dip or evening wind down. Located in the quirky bohemian village of Stockbridge yet only a 10 minute walk to the city centre, Saxe Coburg Place very much enjoys the best of both worlds of village living in the heart of neo-classical New Town. Most find themselves quite smitten with Stockbridge village itself. It’s a great place for shop browsing by day and eating and drinking by night. Set around a maze of cobbled streets it's a marketplace for antiques and quality gifts, speciality food, many art galleries, second hand bookshops and vintage boutiques...and just a touch of eccentricity!
