The beautiful city of Edinburgh is the perfect place to run away with the kids for a fun-filled holiday.


Whether you’re looking for sandy beaches, unusual museums, or historical tours, the Scottish capital is bursting at the seams with family-friendly activities.


We’ve put together a selection of our favourite apartments in the heart of the city, so you can enjoy the ultimate Edinburgh family break.

Central places to stay in Edinburgh with children

Enjoy complete luxury in this stylish two-bed holiday let on the historic Royal Mile in Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage Old Town. 


With the city’s top tourist attractions and hundreds of years of history sat directly on your doorstep, this contemporary apartment is perfect for a family break.


Spend your days exploring this incredible city and return home to enjoy a well-needed rest in the cosy living room. Crack open a bottle of wine and relax as the kids stretch their legs in the communal garden.


If you don't fancy cooking in the fully-equipped kitchen, why not pop downstairs to discover Edinburgh's world-renowned restaurant scene?


Choose from a cheap and cheerful pug grub at The Halfway House, Scottish fish and chips on the High Street, or fine dining at the award-winning Devil's Advocate restaurant.

This place really feels like a home away from home. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with an electric oven, dishwasher, and even a washing machine if kids decide to get mucky!
