Kensington Vacation Rentals

For a holiday home that rubs shoulders with royalty, look no further than the prestigious terraced townhouses of London’s Kensington. Home to Kensington Palace, which is the official residence of the royal family’s younger set, this leafy area on the edge of Central London has some of the city’s most expensive real estate. And from grand Victorian family-friendly homes to stylish apartments for couples, it offers a great mix of luxury vacation rentals.

 

A quick stroll south from Kensington High Street, the streets are characterised by handsome Victorian terraced homes that offer seriously spacious accommodation in Kensington, perfect for the larger family. Over time, many of these houses have been converted into luxury apartments, providing easy access to Kensington’s ample array of pubs, restaurants and shops, not to mention its sprawling Wholefoods Market.

 

For a more private vacation rental in Kensington, the area has a wealth of cosy mews houses, set back from the main street along pretty cobbled courtyards. Originally built during the 17th and 18th centuries, they were constructed behind the grand terraced homes for the servants to service the horses and carriages. Despite having been renovated, these quirky homes have maintained their distinctive character, and they offer some of Kensington’s most charming places to stay.

 

Slightly further south down Kensington’s tree-lined streets, the properties are less grand but just as lovely. Couples and small families looking for a charming pied à terre or a cosy London bolthole will adore these rows of pastel-painted cottages. And with easy access to cultural landmarks like the Royal Albert Hall, Serpentine Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum, some of the best things to do in London are right on your doorstep.
