Romantic Retreats
Description
It isn’t hard to imagine why Ava Gardener would have chosen to spend the last few decades of her celebrated life just one block away from this peaceful mews at Ennismore Gardens. Hidden away from the bustle of Knightsbridge, this incredibly quiet hamlet is a haven of peace, and an enchanting getaway in central London. Think cobbled streets, multi-coloured houses lined with potted plants and a sprinkling of street lamps. Wrought iron balconies branch out at leisure to complete this idyllic scene.

Living & Eating
Step inside this enchanting Mews house and enjoy the characterful and unique interior. The living room invites you to stay a while, with a large sofa to flop on, and leads onto the compact kitchen.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms
The bedroom is complete with a king-sized bed (5ft wide), fitted wardrobes, a flat screen television and delightful wooden shutters. A third guest can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the living room. The beautifully tiled bathroom is bright and thoughtfully designed. With a bath and a built-in shower, heated towel rail, basin, toilet and mirror. 

Access & Layout
There is a flight of stairs taking you up to your apartment.

On Your Doorstep
The magnificent Hyde Park is just a hop, skip and a jump away, perfect for a morning stroll (or run for the more energetic) Take a picnic under one of Hyde Park’s magnificent Oak trees, watch the roller-bladers slalom effortlessly through cones, or rent a rowing boat and test your speed on the magnificent Serpentine. If you’re feeling slightly more adventurous why not take a ride on the UK’s first Solar- Shuttle - powered only by the Sun! (We’re not sure how fast that will go in England but there is only one way to find out…). With such a collection of Museums within arm’s reach you are bound to go home smarter than you came! While away the hours learning about the times when dinosaurs ruled the Earth in the Natural history Museum, or check out the latest on Art and Design as you wander through the Victoria and Albert. Foodies are in for a treat as artisan bakeries, delicatessens and all manner of food is well within strolling distance. Try Shezan for fancy cocktails and live Jazz music, or head to Chabrot for a traditional French brassiere. Whatever your mood you’ll find it on your doorstep. A small market located one block away on Exhibition Road is open 7 days a week and is a great place to get freshly baked croissants for the morning. The world-famous Harrods is a handful of minutes away, with its superb food hall and unique supermarket. If you fancy a more normal and functional food store then Marks and Spencer’s, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s are all similarly close.

This enchanting one bedroom London vacation rental is located on a secluded mews house in Knightsbridge, within walking distance to Harrods. Perfect for couples and single travellers looking for a luxurious London neighbourhood.

Ivy Lettings had the perfect balance of warmth and professionalism. All communications were clear, timely and thorough. The staff at Ivy provided detailed directions to our flat and a warm welcome when we arrived. Everything was as promised and they were available for questions or assistance throughout our stay. It was a pleasure doing business with them.

We had such a lovely time at the flat in Ennismore Gardens, we can’t wait to return. Ivy Lettings was professional and courteous and kept in touch with us consistently before our arrival. The flat was perfect —clean, well stocked, quiet, perfect location, with plenty of clear instructions for appliances and other household items. We highly recommend Ivy Lettings.

Ivy Lettings is a great company to work with for those traveling abroad. I arrived later than expected and they accommodated me with a location to pick up my keys. Transfer of funds was seamless. The company notebook was very helpful with recommendations and map of area. Great customer service. Cheers!

We recently stayed in the flat for a week on a sightseeing trip to London. The flat was very comfortable for the two of us. It is located on the mews near the Victoria and Albert Museum. A very quiet back street but only a six minute walk from the Piccadilly Line. There are several grocery stores nearby and Whole Foods is about a 20 minute walk. There are also several good restaurants nearby. We especially liked Zia Teresa, across the street from Harrods.

The apartment is on the second floor, up some relatively narrow stairs. While it wasn't an issue for us, it could be a challenge for travelers with limited mobility or heavy baggage.

This apartment met our needs perfectly and we would be happy to stay here again.

We have stayed with Ivy Lettings since July 2010 and have never been dissatisfied. Starting from the first visit when they were there to welcome us at midnight due to a late train to this last visit in April 2017 where they graciously accomodated us at the last minute, Guy and his team have truly excelled in their hospitality. Each property has been spotless, fitted with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. If there was a question or a request they promptly responded regardless of the day or hour. They have provided information regarding activities, dining and particulars about navigating the city which made our visits almost effortless. We so appreciate knowing that our frequent stays in London include the comfort of an Ivy Lettings property. We recommend them whoheartedly to any who travel to London knowing they will provide an optimum experience.

We were so central to parks, Harrods, transport and museums. We met the owner who was very friendly even leaving notes to say welcome home after a day trip away. We would defintely use this apartment again and would absolutely recommend it to anyone going to London. Thank you for making our first trip to London memorable and affordable.

Kate & Georgina were service-oriented with an eye towards making our stay perfect! We will use Ivy Lettings for future rentals and will recommend them to family & friends. The Ennismore Gardens Mews apartment is as pictured. Living room/sitting area is nicely furnished with a high-definition TV and high-speed WiFi worked well. The bedroom has a newer bed with fresh and comfy linens, a double window (no a/c), large closet and a TV. The bed was a bit softer than we like, but most will find it very comfortable. The large, modern bathroom is well outfitted with hot water always available, water pressure was perfect. The kitchen is very compact but well-equipped. All appliances worked well, ample glassware & dishes. A freezer and proper stove with an oven would make it ideal, but we had no problems making breakfasts or reheating leftovers. The flat is up a straight 16 or so stairs, separated from the owner's flat downstairs by a simple pair of French doors with a brass latch (not a lock); this was not a problem as you enter through a shared vestibule and the owner was so unobtrusive we never saw or heard him; we only hope we didn't disturb him with our evening comings & goings. Finally, the best part of this flat was its proximity to ALL that London offers. It's a 10-minute walk to South Kensington tube station on the Piccadilly Line from there you can get to central London tourist attractions in 15 minutes or less. Also nearby are Knightsbridge, Hyde Park Corner and Gloucester stations. We bought an Oyster Card our first day and traveled with ease both day and night on London's tube. We wish the DC Metro was half as efficient! The area around the apartment is lovely, walkable, and near the Brompton Road quarter with a large selection of restaurants and shops. The Sainsbury Local is just down Brompton for quick grocery pick-ups and several 24/7 shops offer sodas, newspapers, stamps and the like. The Victoria & Albert Museum, Natural History, and Royal Albert Hall are literally around the corner from the flat. So convenient to see these fantastic, FREE museums. I spent several days just touring around the flat with no need for public transport. The neighborhood seemed very quiet and safe for walking with great lighting and beautiful, multi-million dollar homes on Ennismore & Princes Garden streets (and a variety of Bentley's, Rolls, Ferraris, a Maserati and luxury cars we don't usually see parked on the street in Potomac, Maryland!) Overall, we loved the flat, would give a 4.5 stars with our only faults the absence of a freezer (we do like our icy cold beverages) and the fact that only 1 set of bath linens per person was provided for our 6-night stay. Otherwise, we don't think you'll find a cozier or more convenient location for a London holiday. Thanks again to Kate, Georgie, and Ivy Lettings for making our stay in London WONDERFUL!

The kitchen is small but well fitted. The fridge would benefit from having a freezer but this is not a "show stopper". The bedroom is a good size and the bed can be a king size or 2 singles. The location of the apartment is superb - it is literally 4-5 minutes walk from Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens and the same to Kensington Station and Brompton Road. Being in a mews, it is extremely quiet. The owner, when not travelling, lives downstairs and is charming and helpful but discreet. We would not hesitate to stay again when we next visit London.

Walking out into the mews every morning of the three weeks we stayed at this lovely apartment was such a joy! Other reviewers have mentioned the location—central yet incredibly quiet--one of the best features of the apartment. There is a walkway between Brompton Road and the mews, by the side of the church that provides a “shortcut” to the busy thoroughfare, a bit lonely at night. However, it is safe, a delivery boy left a fancy bag for neighbors that were not home and it sat on their doorstep for three days. Nobody touched it. Everything needed for a temporary stay is available. The positive about this apartment is that it is decorated for an owner with excellent taste to live in. Living/ dining area: A large space table for two (perhaps three) for dining and a large 40inch flat screen TV, CD player,(no IPod dock), books on art, travel, decoration and assorted. Attractive and thoughtful details everywhere. Kitchen/Food: small but oh, so cute. Again charmingly decorated. Many carry-out places starting with Harrods’ superb Food Halls to supermarkets, all a five minute walk. There’s a series of restaurants down Exhibition Road past Brompton Road around the Kensington High Tube Station--a Pain Quotidian, Indian, Thai, Italian, Kulu-Kulu (fun sushi with conveyor belt), Lebanese, tapas, patisseries, wine and cheese shops. A short bus ride (or a nice walk) to Kensington High has a Whole Foods Supermarket and the best takeout in London: Ottolenghi (another in Mayfair). Essentials, a small market a block away between the apartment and Exhibition Road is open 7 days a week has good selection--including fresh baked croissants and the newspaper-- caters to the students of Imperial College with many small-sized items. An M&S supermarket about five blocks away on Brompton Rd. as well as a couple markets with less selection, but OK for a quick sandwich. Bath: Obviously recently renovated, stylish, modern and clean. The apartment is comfortable, clean, stylish and in a great location. Would we return? Yes.

The space, the amenities, and the location were exactly as advertised. Ivy Lettings, the leasing agency, made the whole renting process very easy and late one night, when we were locked out and couldn't contact the apartment owner, they had an employee on call who stayed with us on the phone for 45 minutes until we got the problem solved. It is on a very quiet mews away from the hustle and bustle of London, but very close to everything you could possibly want. The area the apartment is in is a wonderful international area, very close to buses, two tube stations, great restaurants, The Victoria and albert Museum, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park and the Royal albert Hall. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to stay there again.

The flat is beautifully appointed and close to many of the top experiences of London: Museums, shops, art galleries and restaurants and Hyde Park. The tube is a short walk away and we often used the double-decker buses (try for the front seats upstairs). We strongly recommend this flat.
