About Jude Mezger

We (Theo & Jude) are a married couple who live in the Hampshire countryside just an hour south west of London.

We have an icecream company called Judes, based n Twyford near Winchester.

Whilst my husband and I still are slightly involved with the company. We oversea the company but also run the charity side, by inviting school children into Judes, grade 8, and show them around setting them a Judes challenge programme.

The day to day running is now left to two of our sons and a very good friend of theirs.

We have 4 children, 2 of whom live in London. We find ourselves travelling up to London most weeks, often for a DIY projects when one of our children may need a hand.

We now, proudly, have two grandsons aged 2years 5 months and 8 months living in Battersea.. This is our eldest sons family who is 39 years.

Our second son, aged, 36 is married and loving living in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. they are both artists.

Our third son, 35yrs is also married and living inBattersea.

Our youngest, daughter aged 30 is living in Birmingham working for Gas Street church, married and her husband is a Worship leader and composer.

We love spending our time between the beauty of the Hampshire countryside and the excitement of London.

Why Jude Mezger chose Kensington & Chelsea

We purchased this apartment in 2009 from a close relative. This apartment holds many happy memories for us as a family. Elm Park gardens is such a wonderful locations. Within 5 minutes you are able to access restaurants, shops, buses, all take you to the sights of London

The flat is very light and airing with views over residential gardens.

I feel totally safe travelling in the area, whether by foot, bus or tube. Personally I walk everywhere or go by bus. You do need an OYSTER CARD for public transport. A pre paid card. Bought in tube stations, some newsagents. the closest in by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on the Fulham Road.

What makes this apartment unique

Located in a traditional London mansion block, the apartment has many of the unique Victorian features with high ceilings and light rooms. This is combined with a modern feel to create a beautiful and relaxing open space.

The apartment is perfectly located for visiting the museums, shops, restaurants and bars of Kensington and Chelsea and is a great base for exploring the gems of London.

This was the second time staying at this well located and lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice after a busy day of exploring to be able to return to Jude's welcoming flat. The rooms are bright and spacious. The beds top notch. The kitchen and baths fully equipped. The location makes both underground and bus transport a breeze. There is a range of restaurants and several markets within a couple of blocks. The museums are an easy walk through lovely leafy neighborhoods. Both times we have stayed it has been hard to leave. Despite over a dozen trips to London there is always a spot not visited. Jude has great advice and has stocked a library of guide books. Despite all the wonders London has to offer one of the nicest days was spent on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book. Can't wait to return

Quiet oasis in a bustling city

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in London. The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood, walking distance to everything needed to stock it, but far enough from main streets that traffic noise did not intrude. Buses and the tube were very close. It is spacious and well-equipped. Two full baths facilitate a family's morning routines. We particularly appreciated Jude's suggestions, and her ice cream samples.

Awesome stay in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I can't use enough superlatives to adequately describe our recent stay in this very comfortable flat in a real classy neighborhood of London. We were two retired couples from the USA and We always felt very safe in this area. The owner, Jude, was very helpful to us both before and during our rental. She even popped in to say good-bye on our last night and really provided a personal touch--- including some samples of her own ice cream. The flat itself was very roomy and there is a lift since it is located on the 4th floor. The building is located between Fulham Road and Kings Road and we took the #14 bus on Fulham and the #11 on Kings which were both very convenient, as well as the nearby South Kensington underground station which was either within walking distance or on the #14 route. Also, there are so many. Restaurants and cafes and shops in the neighborhood. The beds in the flat also guaranteed a great sleep every night. There is.a nearby boulangerie around the corner on Fulham where we bought fresh baguettes and croissants every morning for breakfast in the flat. We loved our stay and hopefully will be able to return sometime. Thanks so much Jude for your hospitality and kindness throughout this process. We would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable and convenient location in a premier neighborhood of London.

Absolutely Love this Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our first ever visit to the UK and absolutely loved it. The apartment is spacious, close to restaurants and grocery stores, and is easy access to London.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths which worked great for our family with 2 teenagers. It has all the amenities you need - washer/dryer (be sure to empty the water collector on the dryer), iron and ironing board, hair dryer, linens, towels. Also has a full kitchen with range, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Living room is very comfortable with plenty of seating. Also has TV and wireless internet. Every night after a busy day around London, we would settle down together and watch TV in the living room before going to bed. It became "home" very quickly.

Elm Park Gardens is a wonderfully quiet street between Fulham and Kings Road and is a short walk to either. Fulham Road has several nice affordable restaurants, coffee shops and small grocery stores. Kings Road has even more restaurants and shopping than Fulham so, between the two, you can find most anything you need.

Travel into downtown London is easy. You can walk 4 minutes to catch a bus or take a 15 minute walk to catch the Tube at South Kensington Station. We are from a rural area in North Carolina with no experience using buses or trains but loved how easy it was to travel around the city.

We definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the area. Communication with the owner Jude and her friend Carol who checked us in was excellent. Both were very helpful from booking through checkout.

Wonderful London retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our London trip, which was further enhanced by staying in such a wonderful flat in Chelsea. It was so nice to come home to Jude's comfortable and spacious property. The location was ideal ... close to many tube stations and bus stops as well as neighborhood restaurants and stores. We hope to return to London, and would definitely like to rent this property again. Thanks Jude for your flexibility and hospitality.

Great everything

  • 5 of 5

Actually, we didn't get to stay, because of an illness. However, Jude was amazing in her cooperation and desire to help us find a solution. So, friends stayed there in our place, who happened to be in London at the same time. They loved the apartment. I hope we get to come back soon and stay ourselves!
