Description
Cornwall Mews South is a charming two bed serviced apartment situated on a secluded cobbled mews close to the Gloucester Road. A peaceful and tranquil location tucked away in the heart of Kensington, this home is a long-standing favourite in the Ivy Lettings collection for its situation and style, with an elegant and warm interior, it is the perfect rental for couples, or a small family.

Living & Eating
Extremely pleasant open plan living and dining space, warmly decorated and conducive to relaxation with two sofas, an armchair and occasional tables decorated in classical style. The large dining table comfortably seats six. The separate fully equipped kitchen with range of cooking appliances invites use after a long day's sightseeing.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms
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!

This charming family-friendly London vacation rental is the perfect home from home for those wishing to explore all that the city has to offer. Equally this holiday apartment is ideal for couples thanks to its secluded location and warm interior.

My family of four just completed our stay in London. It was a fantastic experience and greatly enhanced by staying at Guy’s place. The place was charming, quiet, and perfectly located in Kensington, transportation, good food, and all that London has to offer. The beds were comfortable, modern bathroom was great after a long day of seeing the sites, kitchen was perfect for our needs, and the place makes you feel right at home. We could not have been happier with our stay. I’ll add that Guy’s team was fantastic making sure we were met in person for check in. I highly recommend staying here

We enjoyed our stay in a first floor flat on Cornwall Mews South. The South Kensington location was very convenient with short distances to food markets and restaurants. Our flat was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Although the kitchen was small, it was well equipped for occasional light meal preparation. The bathroom was modern with a deep soaking tub/shower. 
We recommend Ivy Lettings for vacation rentals. Their communication was clear, prompt and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed this "home away from home" in an exciting busy city

The kitchen is very small, so don't plan on much cooking; and the second bedroom is tight, but fits two twin beds. But the master bedroom is a nice size and the living/dining room are very comfortable. The apartment is pretty, well appointed, and comfortable, and you can't beat the location. The little mews - really a garden path - on which it's located is so sweet, and pretty, and English. There are no cars on it, so we felt perfectly safe letting our children play outside, like in a backyard or garden, which was lovely. Two blocks from the tube and a short walk to museums and parks. We loved it.

The place is on the smaller side in terms of size of the kitchen and bedrooms but worked great in terms of the location and proximity to the tube, supermarkets etc. Stayed there with our 2 year old and it as a great option for him as it gave him plenty of room to run around in side the place. The place is on a small alley way and there are other places right across so privacy is a little issue. The kitchen was functional with all the things needed. Would recommend it for small families as the second bedroom is really small. Ivy letting was great to work with.

We have just returned from a 2 weeks stay in this wonderful apt in Kensington. We choose this place for the location and it was perfect: close to the tube and walking area was also nice with lots of amusements. It is a classic style apt, not really big, but 4 adults +1 child were quite comfortable. The apt was super clean, beds very nice and comfy. Like most tourists we were there to experience the city and could not have chosen a better location. Within walking distance we found food store opened 24 hours. The other huge plus was the service we received from Kate (Ivy Lettings) We so appreciated her prompt nswer of each email question as well as helping set up transportation to and from the airport. Definitely come back and will recommend friends!

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.

It is beautifully decorated, warm and welcoming. It has all modern conveniences, including a washer/dryer and great shower. The neighbourhood is quiet and the neighbours friendly. Gloucester Road underground station is a short walk, and there are many useful shops, including supermarkets, and restaurants/cafes, on Gloucester and Cromwell roads, all within easy distance. We had a wonderful time, making use of the well-equipped kitchen to prepare the gourmet delights we bought during the day. Relaxing on the comfortable couches after a hard day's sightseeing was a little luxury. Alexa from Ivy Lettings did an amazing job of co-ordinating our booking process, and greeted us in person on arrival. Even when our plans changed slightly, they were accommodated. We have no hesitation in recommending Ivy Lettings for great service and lovely properties.

The neighborhood was convenient, safe, and attractive. I enjoyed my early morning walks, especially seeing all the children walking to school. The owners left recommendations for nearby restaurants and amenities, which was very helpful We had a great dinner at Med Kitchen! The Tube and shops were just around the corner, but the flat was in a quiet side street. I had thoroughly researched possible locations to stay, and amelia from Ivy Lettings worked with me via email to secure the flat at Cornwall Mews. The agency was very accommodating about our weekend check-in and a late checkout on departure. We would certainly use Ivy Lettings again for future travel.

It was spacious, comfortable (great beds) and very well-equipped with all appliances in excellent working order. The oven and washing machine were especially appreciated. Great location, an easy walk from the Gloucester Road tube as well as Kensington High Street, Hyde Park, the V&A;, and much else. Kate was a joy to work with, prompt, efficient, and always professional when dealing with our many questions, credit card problems, and anything else that came up. A great flat, a great company.

Cornwall Mews South has a fantastic location as it was 3-5 minutes away from the Gloucester Road Tube Station and other amenities such as restaurants, 24 hr Tesco Supermarket , bus stops and mid way between High Street Kensington and Knightsbridge. The apartment comes fully stocked with plates, pots and necessary everyday utensils. It was just a great place to be at.

Beautifully decorated in a quintessential British style and stocked with the comforts of home, including a clothes washer/dryer. The well-stocked kitchen allowed us to eat in for a few meals, using provisions from the large grocery store a short walk away. We also enjoyed unwinding at the end of the day in the comfortable living room. The apartment is in a prime location, within walking distance to Kensington Palace and Gardens, the Victoria & Albert and other museums, and the Gloucester Road tube station, and many good restaurants (we particularly liked Med Kitchen and Noorjahan). The rental agency Ivy Lettings was very easy to work with and facilitated our after hours arrival. We enthusiastically recommend Cornwall Mews South and would love to have a chance to stay there again.

First of all, the location is extremely convenient to the tube, and everything you would need (groceries, restaurants, etc) is a short walk away. The flat was very pretty, fairly spacious for a city flat, and all appliances worked perfectly. Very importantly, it looked just like the pictures on the Ivy Lettings website! Full instructions for every appliance, along with a personal note, were left by the owner. The owner often uses the flat, so it is very homey. Ivy Lettings were in touch with us before, during and after our stay! I would rent through Ivy Lettings again without hesitation, and would love to stay again on Cornwall Mews South!
