  • “The apartment had everything we needed and was spacious, warm and comfortable.”

    As mentioned in previous reviews the bath/shower will be an issue for those who don't have long legs and are perhaps no longer as nimble as they used to be, however, there is a sturdy step and grab rail to help. The apartment was very quiet, with no noise from the neighbours and no traffic noise outside as it is situated down a no through road. It was easy walking down to the waters front and 5 mins to a nearby Scotmid supermarket. We caught the train to Edinburgh one day, off-peak the cost ...

    As mentioned in previous reviews the bath/shower will be an issue for those who don't have long legs and are perhaps no longer as nimble as they used to be, however, there is a sturdy step and grab rail to help. The apartment was very quiet, with no noise from the neighbours and no traffic noise outside as it is situated down a no through road. It was easy walking down to the waters front and 5 mins to a nearby Scotmid supermarket. We caught the train to Edinburgh one day, off-peak the cost was about £5 return and took only 15 mins to get there. There are lots of small pathways and a disused railway line to explore. These provide short cuts between the property and a nearby road where we found it easy to park. A word of warning. The narrow road to the apartment is a dead end with a turning area. Whilst the road is wide enough for cars I would have found it difficult to turn around to get back out again as there were cars parked in the turning area and in the passing places. We arrived when it was getting dark so parked on Station Road and walked to the property to assess and decided to walk in with our suitcases on wheels (a 5 minute walk). There are several eateries for meals but we only visited one, The Hawes Inn, under the Forth Road Bridge. and it was excellent - we went back 3 times. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

    Dear Mrs Edmonds, Many thanks once more for your booking, and thank you for your generous feedback. Steve Property Owner

The property

This delightful, lower-ground floor apartment sits in an attractive historic stone building in South Queensferry, to the west of Edinburgh.

Presented to a lovely standard and enjoying views of the Forth road Bridges, Lilybank Apartment is a lovey choice for those looking to explore this exciting region of Scotland.

The apartment is accessed via the main door and then the stairs to the basement level.

Discover the delightful living/dining room, complete with attractive wooden flooring and a cosy arrangement of seating, plus an alluring woodburning stove for those harsh winter nights.

There is also a lovely dining table set next to the bay window, providing a charming spot for family mealtimes or a home-brought board game.

Dust off those cooking books and relish in the contemporary kitchen, enhanced with stylish units and a white brick splashback, along with excellent appliances in the SMEG fridge/freezer, induction hob and Belfast sink.

The bedrooms are both wonderfully presented, offering a super-king-size with original fireplace and a twin, served by a lavish bathroom with claw-foot bath.

To the outside of Lilybank Apartment is a communal lawned garden where you can enjoy a drink amidst the idyllic surroundings.

South Queensferry is a lively town lined with attractive Scottish buildings; stroll through the town centre and stop off at one of the cafés or restaurants that overlook the Forth Bridges, a spectacular UNESCO site which attractors thousands of tourists to take in the views.

Learn more about the town and the beautiful bridges at the South Queensferry Museum, a popular tourist venue which also offers educational shows.

If you’re lucky enough to be visiting South Queensferry while the town is hosting “Your View” experiences, then you must add it to your list – this unique experience gives visitors the chance to see and uninterrupted 360-degree panorama view of the Edinburgh and Fife coastline, from a viewing platform which is raised 361 feet in the air.

On the outskirts of the town rests the stately homes of Dalmeny House and Hopetoun House, boasting beautiful grounds, classic architecture and historic artefacts.

Venture to the city of Edinburgh, where you can meander the cobbled streets and uncover some hidden gems, including an array of superb restaurants, along with great sightseeing opportunities at Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the skyline and has been voted as the top UK Heritage Attraction in the British Travel Awards.

Lilybank Apartment is a lovely retreat for couples and families to enjoy, whatever time of year.
