The master bedroom boasts a king-size bed (5ft wide), and ample wardrobe space. The second bedroom houses a single bed, and a single pullout bed to accommodate a 4th guest. There is one large and tastefully decorated bathroom with toilet, basin, bath and overhead shower.
Access & Layout
Located on the ground floor, there are a couple of steps within the vacation rental.
On your doorstep
A five minute walk from Gloucester Road underground station (which serves both the Piccadilly and District lines) means you have quick links to the whole city, but you have masses to explore right on your doorstep too! Finding yourself in one of the city’s most enviable postcodes you really will be spoilt for choice. Take the short 5 minute walk to Kensington Gardens and you’ll be able to see Prince William and Kate’s abode, Kensington Palace, in the middle of the manicured park. Kensington Gardens border the magnificent Hyde Park with its Serpentine lake (which even has a swimming area if you’re feeling brave!) and large green spaces. Ensure to make the most of being so close to the museums of South Kensington and wile away afternoons, discovering treasures from past and present. Additionally, there are a multitude of grocery stores, ATMs, coffee shops and restaurants on your doorstep.
There are plenty of supermarkets close by including a Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and a Sainsbury's. For a friendly local pub try The Blackbird. Or if you are in the mood for something a little more bohemian then check out the world-famous Troubadour. This place has a well-deserved reputation for its fantastic cocktails, character and live music- the Mumford and Sons played here only a few years ago. Whatever your taste, this is a food-lovers dream. Maybe take in Christie’s, the globally renowned auction house, located just half a mile away. Countless legendary lots have passed through here including Audrey Hepburn’s timeless black dress from the all-time classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and 20 of Elton John’s cars!

Peaceful haven in the heart of Kensington
In June 2012, my family of four (including two teenagers) enjoyed staying in this comfortable home, located in a perfect location right in the middle of South Kensington...easy walking distance to the tube, grocery stores, and lots of good restaurants. We stayed for two weeks in this lovely home, with two nice bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen with washing machine. It was a perfect home base for our family to enjoy a vacation in London.
We had a wonderful week in London. The Apartment was very nice and personal. We went out for dinners but the kitchen could need a proper cleaning. Quiet place and nice neighbours and nice restaurants in the area. We would surely come back.
The people at the Ivy-lettings office has been so kind and helpful. Thank you so much from all 4 of us
The property was excellent: quiet location, comfortably appointed, secure, close to the Gloucester Road tube station and easy walking distance to museums. Ivy Lettings were excellent to deal with, met us at the property and provided great support leading up to our visit. Highly recommended.
My family and I loved staying in this delightfully cozy flat over the Christmas break. It's down a quiet muse perfectly located in the Royal Borough and steps from the Gloucester Rd tube with quick access to all of London and a 10 min walk to Hyde Park.
The flat owners were even so very kind as to leave a little Christmas tree for us to have for Crimbo. As an American not all the furnishings or the setup were what is used to here, but the flat was very clean and everything was completely functional.
Ivy Lettings was a fantastic agency to use, very useful as we searched for a location and in every way helpful. Fortunately we didn't need to reach out to them during our stay for anything, but they met us at check-in and walked us through all the ins & outs of the flat and it was comforting to know we could reach them if we needed to. During the rental process we had to switch from one Ivy Lettings person to another due to a holiday and that transition was handled seamlessly.
I would definitely rent from Ivy Lettings again, and I would strongly recommend them to anyone.
The apartment at Cornwall Mews that we rented for our short stay in London was pleasant and tidy, with a great location easy walking distance to shopping, museums, Hyde Park, restaurants and the Gloucester Road tube station. During our stay my wife, two daughters and I were out seeing the sites during the day and were able to come back to a cozy, pleasant apartment located in a charming neighbourhood.
World Famous Museums
The Natural History Museum, The Victoria & Albert Museum and The Science Museum are all on your doorstep. Visit the lesser known Mosaic Rooms, which hosts beautifully curated exhibits of Islamic art and culture.
Kensington Palace, home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland. Lay out a rug in front of the Palace gates and enjoy one of the best picnic spots in London. From Kensington High Street, walk up Kensington Palace Gardens - known as Billionaire's Row - and admire the Embassy mansions and private homes of the uber-wealthy. Take high tea (with or without Champagne) at the Kensington Orangery for the full English experience.
The Deli Bar makes a great full English breakfast. Kensington Square Kitchen is a very pretty brunch spot that celebrates British, seasonal produce. Tom's Kitchen, run by celebrity chef Tom Atkins, is another institution of British cooking and makes extraordinarily fluffy pancakes.
Lunch & Dinner
For a great bistro with a relaxed atmosphere, try Chez Patrick. Balan's of Earls Court has one of the best Sunday lunches in London. We also recommend 222 Veggie Vegan for plentiful, award-winning food.
Pubs and Bars
There's almost too many good pubs in the area. Our favourite are The Colton Arms, The Drayton Arms, The Queen's Arms or The Abingdon for a typically British local pub experience. If you want more than pint, the Harwood Arms serves Michelin starred food.
For a taste of the high-life head to Babylon at the Roof Gardens, 100m above Kensington High Street.
High Street Kensington has it all - department stores, major fashion labels and smaller boutiques tucked away up side streets.
