Albyn is THE heaven of calm in gorgeous Bruntsfield. Ran by myself, Lydie & little helpers, the three children of the house Charlotte, Louis, Pip & Betty the beautiful cocker Spaniel… Beautifully designed & decorated by your resident artist (me!!).
I offer 8 comfortable bedrooms & welcoming environment in a traditional historic Victorian Townhouse, formerly the St Oswalds Church Manse. Our beloved home is a truly amazing building to stay in. Albyn Townhouse is your relaxing retreat a short distance from Edinburgh’s Old Town.
