To get a feel for Newhaven you might be best to Wikipedia it! In essence it was a fishing village and also where the Great Michael was built in the 1500's; James IV having built the harbour to build his Scottish Navy. Our sitting room and one bedroom overlook the sea. We are 2.2 miles form the centre of edinburgh. We now have a new bus service No. 200 from the airport that goes straight past Newhaven. There is an excellent bus service into the centre. 24 hour super market 5 minutes walk away.
A charming 2 bedroom flat on the first floor of a Georgian property on the shorefront of the Forth Estuary. This is NOT a ground floor flat. Stunning views from the sitting room and bedroom 1 and quiet sunny bedroom at the back overlooking the garden. 1 mile from Leith and 2.5 miles from city centre.
Sleeps 4-6. (2 double bedrooms with 4'6 wide beds and a "double" pull out sofa bed in the sitting room). The flat is best for 4 people. There is a sofa bed but the mattress is only 122cm wide; so better for 1 adult or 2 children. I would say the flat is NOT suitable for 6 adults.
1 shower room. 1 w.c.
There are 2 good size bedrooms with double beds and linen and towels provided.
A sunny fully fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher and microwave and a large fridge freezer. Small kitchen table with 6 chairs. Large sitting room with 2 windows over looking the Firth of Forth, furnished with 2 armchairs and sofa. (sofa pulls out as sofa bed if required) There is also a larger table in the sitting room for dining in here if preferred. TV, DVD player and Wifi
There is a compact shower room with walk in type shower.
Private entrance through shared garden.
Free street parking outside.
Very good bus service to city centre. 200 airlink bus from the airport to Newhaven.
Large 24 hour supermarket 5 minutes walk. Very good local cafe next door; 3 good local pubs and restaurants within walking distance and property adjacent to historic Newhaven Harbour. Leith is only 1.5 miles east of here with many great places to eat and drink.
We live next door so are here to meet and greet and give advice on where to go and what to do!
I love the view.
The bus service is good in Edinburgh and we have 3 buses available just outside to take you in to town. I have bus timetables in the flat.
Private Entrance from the garden. Accessed from the communal stair.
2 double bedrooms.
Sitting room with sofa bed, tv and cd player.

The garden is shared with other neighbours, but you are welcome to use it and hang your washing out etc. The trampoline belongs to our neighbour so best to ask them first!
