Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments at Holyrood is a remarkable property prestigiously located on the doorstep of the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the royal heart of Edinburgh. This luxury residence features nine original and beautifully designed serviced apartments, available to book for any length of stay, from one night to a year or even more.
A press release states that over the course of its 500-year history, the building has been home to a number of courtiers. Sharing an unrivalled pedigree, this rich past meets contemporary living within its characterful walls. Designed with a nod to the colourful assortment of former inhabitants, the collection of Open Plan, one and two-bedroom apartments are totally unique and intriguingly unconventional. All apartments are equipped with luxury extras to enhance one’s stay, whilst each apartment is uniquely versatile, featuring a range of shapes and sizes, sleeping from one to five guests.
The Old Town in which the property lies, is the name for the original and oldest part of Scottish capital that evolved around the fortified Edinburgh Castle. The castle sits at the top of what is known as the Royal Mile which leads in a downward slope to Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments at Holyrood and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of the British Monarch when in Scotland.
Also adjacent to Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments are the Scottish Parliament, which opened in 2004 and is open for the public to visit, and Dynamic Earth, a family friendly futuristic science and nature attraction. If guests are planning on exploring the city’s green spaces, the Holyrood Park is only moments from their front door, leading up to Arthur’s Seat, the highest point of what is an extinct volcano. Do take a round-trip walking expedition to the top, which will take approximately 2 hours in total and a 10-minute walk to reach the main Old Town area where one will find an extensive range of restaurants, bars, shops and other attractions guaranteed to keep one entertained during their visit. Also if guests are fond of alcohol, they will not struggle to find somewhere to sample Scotland’s arguably most famous export, whisky.
