Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1-Bedroom, 1-bathroom Apartment in Kensington, patio, conservatory (sleep 4)

Our beautiful Cornwall apartment is a one bedroom, one bathroom vacation rental set on a quiet street lined with lovely white Victorian homes. Located right in the heart of Kensington, the Cornwall is just a pleasant stroll from the expansive Kensington Gardens, excellent shopping and world-class museums on South Kensington's Museum Row. Measuring 550 square feet, the Cornwall enjoys sunny views of the front garden from the living room. The comfortable living room, kitchen and dining area are lovely spots to relax and enjoy every moment of your stay in London. Best of all, dine al fresco in the back patio directly outside the bedroom or the small conservatory in the back garden! Our Cornwall apartment rental was fortunate to be featured on The Fine Living Channel as their top pick in London.

You'll fall in love with this charming neighborhood, one of the safest and most sought-after in London, inhabited by a number of Lords and Ladies, well-known actors and politicians and just a short walk from Kensington Palace, a real working Palace that was one home to Princess Diana. Enjoy strolling through Kensington Gardens or exploring the top shopping spots on Kensington High Street and Knightsbridge nearby. Guests also love being just a short stroll from the Gloucester Road Tube station where you can go direct and quickly reach the Theatre District for London's fabulous West End shows and shopping in Covent Garden. Discover all the charms of Kensington and the London lifestyle during your stay at the Cornwall!

Why London Perfect chose Kensington & Chelsea

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the loveliest and most sought-after areas in central London. Many Londoners would dream of living in this borough, which is home to some of the most famous neighbourhoods in London – Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court and Chelsea. These areas exude London charm with their rows of Victorian homes, peaceful garden squares and easy access to the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Visit world-class museums in South Kensington, stroll along the Thames in Chelsea, find treasures along the Portobello Road Antiques Market in Notting Hill, shop the biggest names in fashion in Knightsbridge, imagine the royal life at Kensington Palace or spend a leisurely afternoon in Kensington Gardens. With some of the best shopping spots in London, classic pubs and great restaurants, you’ll enjoy all the best of the London lifestyle in Kensington and Chelsea. Reach all the top sites in London quickly and easily on the London Underground or by simply hopping on one of the classic double-decker London buses. We fell in love with this charming area of London, and we think you will, too!

What makes this apartment unique

You'll love the location just around the corner from Museum Row, home to the popular Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum and more. Stroll to nearby Kensington Gardens where you can picnic, walk, jog or lunch overlooking the Serpentine. Visit Kensington Palace, once the home of Lady Diana and now the home of her son Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Walk to top shopping spots at Brompton Cross, Knightsbridge and Kensington, or head to the Gloucester Road Tube station just around the corner to reach all the best sights in central London during your stay at the Cornwall in Kensington!

Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay with London Perfect and, as usual, it was perfect! The Cornwall is a lovely apartment with a beautiful English garden. The bedroom is a sanctuary - away from the street and very quiet. If you are noise sensitive and/or want a peaceful place to rest after a day on the town, this is the apartment for you. We will return!

Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

“My wife and I fell in love with Cornwall the moment we walked in. A truly beautiful apartment, which I couldn't recommend more highly. We were very happy with the orientation visit by the congenial young man, Ian. The neighborhood itself is quiet, secluded, and beautiful. A perfect location for a London "basecamp". The major downtown London tourist sites are a distance away, but if you're enthusiastic walkers, it's not a problem. In any case, the Gloucester Road tube station is minutes away. And if your destination is Royal Albert Hall, or the Natural History and Victoria and Albert museums, they are all easy walks. Plenty of good food is within easy walking. If one wishes to cook, there is a Whole Foods store nearby. The kitchen's prep surfaces are quite small, but cooking can be done, and the space is well supplied. I would happily stay here again. For me, a couple of must-do's that may not occur to many visitors. Evensong at Westminster Abbey, and the Borough Market. Gold standards of heavenly and earthly sensual experiences.”

Wonderful London holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 3 weeks living very well in the Cornwall apartment which met our needs completely. We were thrilled with its location because it provided such easy access to public transportation and thus, all of London. The neighborhood shopping was convenient; we often found ourselves eating in after a day of exploration just because the apartment was so well appointed and comfortable. Would love to return!

Cornwall

This is a very nice apartment in a very nice neighborhood in London. We found everything clean and comfortable. All the appliances are high end and work well. We had no problems with noise. It was nice to sit in the outdoor garden in the back. The underground station is a pretty five minute walk from the apartment, and there is a Waitrose food shop next to the station which is very a convenient stop when returning from a busy day. We found having most breakfasts in and packing a lunch each day a real time and money saver. The Gloucester Road station is on the circle line and is convenient to central London sights. Kensington Gardens is a short walk, we visited three times. I would highly recommend this apartment. Our stay greatly enhanced our London experience.

The gardens are wonderful for running, walking, picnicking, bicycling or simply stretching out and enjoying a relaxing afternoon like a Londoner.

The V&A, as the Victoria and Albert Museum is called, has one of the finest collections of decorative arts, along with an unbeatable dress collection of garments from the 1300's to London’s iconic fashions of the 60's and today.

Kensington and South Kensington are fabulous neighborhoods for London shopping! Stroll along trendy Kensington High Street to Knightsbridge where you’ll find Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the biggest names in fashion along Sloane Street. Enjoy the best of the London lifestyle with a stay in a London Perfect vacation rental in Kensington and South Kensington.
