Lovely Family Home close to City Centre home swap

Our Victorian home has been completely renovated over the past few years to an extremely high standard. State of the art luxury kitchen is the highlight of the basement, with direct access onto small garden area. At ground level, a warm and inviting family living room with TV, DVD, music system. Four bedrooms - master with kingsize bed; childrens' room with double or twin beds; child's bedroom with cabin bed, guest bedroom with single bed and/ or cot. Additionally, there is an excellent room downstairs which we use as a playroom, ideal for younger children, but also has a double sofa bed for additional guests.

Rooms can hopefully be configured to how you need them with double/twin/cot etc.

If you are bringing children, we have an abundance of indoor and outdoor games you can use, we also have bikes, highchair, cot... Let us know if there is anything else we can source for you!

There is a small garden with trampoline. We are less than 5 minutes' walk from The Meadows and Brunstfield Links - an extensive open space to enjoy walking, tennis, pitch and putt, and 3 children’s playgrounds.

We would be particularly interested in a swap during our Easter school holidays. Our home is available to rent the first 2 weeks of August - come visit during the Edinburgh Festival! We are within easy walking distance of most of the venues. See what's on here:

About the location

Our house is a 20-30 min walk to Edinburgh's Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park.

A 10 minute lovely walk across the Meadows brings you to the newly renovated Museum of Scotland which is free for visitors, a little further and there are several other museums and galleries.

Edinburgh has city beaches within 20 min car ride from our house or lovely beaches along the East Lothian coast - Direlton, Gullane, and North Berwick are around 30/40 mins in the car. East Lothian has several famous golf courses and within Edinburgh there are several excellent courses.

If you wish to venture further afield, Glasgow is one hour away, and The Highlands are just over 1.5hrs drive north.

Our house is a approx 25 mins from the airport.
