    About this property

    This delightful, lower-ground floor apartment sits in an attractive historic stone building in South Queensferry, to the west of Edinburgh. Accessed via two small flights of stairs, the apartment is 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. EPC Rating: Band D

    South Queensferry is nestled on the shore in the shadow of the Forth Bridges, in-between the Falkirk and Edinburgh. The Forth Bridge, a railway bridge which was constructed over 125 years ago, is a unesco World Heritage Site and a spectacular display of engineering. The town offers a number of amenities, including several pubs, restaurants, shops and a museum which showcases the history of the town. South Queensferry was once the main point to board ferries over to Fife and is still a port today, although the boats are now destined for the islands of the Forth. The capital city of Edinburgh is 10 miles away and offers a superb array of things to do and see.

    Douglas ‐ 1 Oct 2021
    " The town has a selection of shops, supermarkets, ice cream parlours, some fine pubs and restaurants.There are boat trips, castles, beach and countryside walks. There's a train station within walking distance at Dalmeny and in 15 minutes you can be in Edinburgh. In the opposite direction there's an award winning beach at Aberdour. Deep sea World is a short trip across the famous Forth Rail Bridge a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We stayed at Lilybank Apartment which sits in a quiet leafy part of the town, next to a bridle path. The apartment is warm, comfortable and inviting, it has a log burner that adds to the atmosphere, and a selection of books, CDs, and games for those lazy or wet days when you don't want to go out. "

    " It was clean, tidy, warm and the owners instructions/handbook were ideal and well thought out, with information regarding the local area, the appliances and train/bus locations. The apartment is very well equipped with everything that you need, and more. Tastefully decorated too. We loved the log burner which we used every night, obtaining logs from the Scotmid (co-op) at the end of the road. The owners were great, they contacted us to wish us well with our stay, which was a lovely touch. Its location was perfect and close to all amenities, and the town of South Queensferry itself had lots to see and do, right on the doorstep. We ventured into most of the pubs, which were very friendly (pls note if eating out the pubs stop serving food about 6pm - except for the Hawes Inn which served all day/evening). We visited Inchcolm Island on the Maid of the Forth, this is definitely worth a visit. We also visited the Falkirk Wheel which was an amazing piece of engineering, def worth a visit too. We got the train into Edinburgh (amazingly £4.50 return), using the handbook for the station location, we used the train as much quicker than the bus and we had our dog with us. We will recommend this apartment to our friends that are looking to visit Scotland, and we would definitely come back to stay, although we would probably leave the dog with friends and fly up, as it is so convenient being the next train station along from the airport station/tram. Def a bonus and better than the 7.5hour drive 'up the road' from England. Thanks Steve & Jo for our wonderful stay. We will be back. R & A xx "

    "Easy access to Edinburgh on the train and Fife over the bridge. Great interaction with the owners and a short walk to Queensferry for good restaurants and ice creams."
    Mrs Bowden ‐ 1 Jun 2021
    " The shower was not mended and I have no way of knowing if the owner really intended to or not. The sides of the bath were tall which made climbing in and out really hazardous as there were no hand rails and the sink which we had to hang on to had a huge crack. The tap shower attachment only partially worked, the basin taps swivelled (they weren't supposed to) and the slightly rusty cupboard above the sink ensured people trying to shave banged their heads. The rest of the apartment was lovely but the presence of a coffee pod machine does not make up for an unsafe bathroom. I do have photos. "

    "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 ..."
