3 Gayfield Square

Self Catering

3 Gayfield Square is a stunning old Merchant's House apartment close to the heart of Edinburgh. Overlooking Edinburgh's historic Gayfield Square, the apartment comprises the whole ground floor of an original 1800s Georgian house. It also has its own private front and back garden. With a feel of staying in a country house but in the middle of Scotland's capital. 

What is the capacity for 3 Gayfield Square?

3 Gayfield Square sleeps up to four guests very comfortably. With two king-double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and one main bathroom off the main hall which has a corner bath and power shower. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Edinburgh area?

The location means 3 Gayfield Square is just a stone's throw from the fashionable Broughton Street, the Playhouse Theatre and a short walk from Princes Street. There are a number of recommended walks around Edinburgh. Take a walk to the top of Leith Walk roundabout for some of the best views of the city or a walk along the Water of Leith where you can take a break at the Botanic Gardens, Dean Village or the Gallery of Modern Art. 

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

3 Gayfield Square has a fully-equipped kitchen for that home away from home feel. A welcome hamper is available on request so that guests don't need to rush out to the shops for supplies. If guests do wish to do their own thing, you can find recommended bars, cafes and restaurants in a quiet location close to Broughton Street.

Other Information

You can find on-street parking just outside (max 4 hours parking with ticket: Monday- Friday, weekends free) or there is 24-hour free parking available within a 10-minute walk from the apartment. 3 Gayfield advises that unless you are wanting to go out of the town then it is unnecessary to have a car here as everything is within walking distance.

By Plane Edinburgh International Airport has several daily connecting flights from the major London airports (check out cheap deals from BA, BMI and Easyjet), as well as other centres around the UK and Europe. Once at the airport, there are various ways to reach the apartment. Aside from a taxi door to door (cost about £20-£25 and takes about 30 minutes), the easiest alternative is to take the tram. This departs from just outside the airport terminal (turn left once outside and walk past the taxi ranks). Take the tram to the terminus at York Place in the centre of town. The apartment is a 2/3 minute walk from the terminus- keep walking straight ahead, pass the Playhouse Theatre and Gayfield Square is on your left going down the hill. Turn left on to the square and the apartment is 50 metres down on the left. The tram costs £5 single or £8 return and takes 40 minutes. Alternatively you can take the airport bus to Waverley train station (about 30 minutes), then it's a short cab ride or a 7 minute walk. By Train Edinburgh is linked to the rest of the UK by an excellent rail network. You can travel directly from London (www.eastcoast.co.uk), Glasgow, and many other cities and towns. Timetables and other rail information can be found at National Rail (www.nationalrail.co.uk). Once at Waverley train station, exit to Princes St., and follow the directions for how to get to Gayfield Square by car, or see the map below. By Car (or on foot) Find Princes Street on the map. The A1 and A68 terminate at the east end of Princes Street. From the A1 you make a right turn from Waterloo Place on to the A900 (Leith). From the A68 you veer right from South Bridge on to the A900. In both cases, carry on down Leith Street until you reach a roundabout. Carry straight over (the Playhouse Theatre will be on your right) and continue down the street to the next roundabout. Take the first exit heading directly ahead down the hill but turn IMMEDIATELY left (almost on the roundabout) on to Gayfield Square. Number 3 Gayfield Square is about 100 metres down on the left (just past the police station and it's very secure!)

We were able to relax in the beautiful living room each evening and eat breakfast and plan our day in the spacious kitchen. Everything we needed was provided for us, just like a luxury hotel. The neighborhood was quiet, safe and there are many nice restaurants on the next block
