THIS WEBSITE IS NOT WORKING FOR ME SO I CANNOT ANSWER ANY MESSAGES! The assistance from TA is non-existent. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED SEARCH 'EPICUREAN CLERK' to find it listed elsewhere. Epicurean Clerk is 150 years old but has all the modern conveniences while retaining all the original features. It was my family home for 11 years so hopefully its look and feel reflect this. It is a extremely large for Edinburgh standards and part of a traditional building which is very central. It is full of charm and retains many original features such as 5 fireplaces, high ceilings, wood floors, hearth in the kitchen, elaborate cornices, working shutters, door bell above main door and even a small bit of the original wall paintings/stencils that were once fashionable in the capital!

It is an unusually large flat which makes for a comfortable stay. There are 4 bedrooms (2 with double loft beds). It has recently been refurbished and has a modern kitchen with many appliances, (there is NOT a tumble dryer but instead a traditional drying rack on a pully system). A modern bathroom. The bedding is very comfortable as well with nice mattresses, great new pillows and comfy duvets. It is in the center of Edinburgh so all of the tourist attractions are a short walk and the country side is just minutes away. The flat is on a main road so catching a bus to anywhere in the city is straight forward. And because it is so central all of the urban conveniences are very close by. Within 2 blocks from the flat there are convenient marts and many restaurants to choose from; Turkish, Indian, Thai, Argentinian, Chinese, Italian, sandwich bars, Metropole Cafe, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, many pubs and bars, a vintage record shop, a vintage clothing shop (Armstrongs), Queens Hall concert venue, Jan de Vries health store, pharmacy, banks (meaning 2 ATMs very close), Blockbuster, plus much more. The neighborhood is beautiful, surrounded by the meadows and Holyrood park and is very laid back in nature.More

Beautiful apartment. Huge, bright, clean and enviable decor. We stayed with extended family for just a few nights but wished we could stay longer. All our dealings with Michele and her rep in Edinburgh were swift, professional and friendly. Highly recommended.

About the neighborhood
Edinburgh is facinating architecturally. The old town was built, then buildings were built on top of the buildings, then alleyways were closed in to create yet more living space. It's a virtual rabbit warren. The old town also houses one of the oldest Camera Obscuras in the world. The new town, in contrast, is grand, and very thoughtfully laid out in squares, with many, if not most of the buildings built in the Georgian Style. There are galleries and museums everywhere, not to mention Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood House, and the new Scottish Parliament. Edinburgh, along with Glasgow, are also the cradles of the Scottish Enlightenment. Many of the ideals laid out in the US Constitution come from philosphers of the Scottish Enlightenment, and many of the actual authors were of Scots decent. A...
