About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Welcome to Cromwell Crescent. Take a step through the private lower ground entrance into the luminous luxury of the perfect central London vacation rental. This Kensington garden flat really does have it all – from a large open plan reception, dining area and kitchen bathed in natural light, which leads directly onto a private paved garden. This exceptional home truly is a little idyll, ideal for family groups, friends or corporate travellers who want easy access to the city centre.

Living & Eating

A large living area leads directly out onto a beautifully kept, charm of a garden. A couple of generous sofas provide soothing comfort for tired limbs, and the large and well-lit kitchen that adjoins it contains everything necessary for preparing a meal.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Two roomy and comfortable double bedrooms provide all one could desire – soft neutral décor and stylish double beds (4.5 ft wide). Each bedroom leads onto en-suite bathrooms, complete with bathtubs and shower attachments – you will be spoilt for choice! There are two double sofa beds in the living room to accommodate an additional four guests.

There is a third cloakroom/WC located in the hallway of the London vacation rental and a separate laundry/storage room in the vaults.

Access & Layout

Located on the lower ground floor, the only steps are those from the street to the vacation home's main entrance. Once inside this apartment is arranged across one level. Please note there are a few additional steps in the garden.

On your doorstep

Families will never be short of things to do in this part of London – children will be enthralled by the splendours and curiosities of the Natural History Museum. Very central and cosmopolitan, but also enjoying the luxury of residential tranquility, it is no surprise that writers, artists and actors have always flocked to this part of town. Those who love to shop are also in the ideal location: Harrods is down the road, as is Harvey Nichols, and all around you will find wonderful antique shops (including the brilliantly named ‘Butchoff’, which is at the top of Kensington Church Street, and is well worth a visit) and small boutiques, like Yastik, which sells only cushions. This area is home to many and various restaurants, bars and pubs, including the Michelin starred Launceston Place, and The Greyhound pub, the favourite London haunt of J.R.R Tolkein. A wonderful farmer’s market takes place every Saturday up off Kensington Church Walk, and the Whole Foods Market on High Street Kensington provides all you need for every culinary occasion, as well as being a joy to browse.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed for about 10 days in this lovely one-room flat. While centrally located in a busy part of town, it sits off a charming walkway near a church (St. Mary abbots), and so is very quiet. We chose it because we wanted to be able to walk about London. It is within a pleasant walking distance - a few miles - to many of London's sites (museums, palaces, theaters) - so we could get our exercise while enjoying London's streets and parks. For farther distances, the flat is ideally located near several Underground stations and had convenient access to train stations. There are many near-by restaurants and a grocery store. The flat is bright, well laid out, beautifully appointed, and has all the needed amenities - perfect for two people. The pull-out bed is very comfortable (I was a little skeptical of how comfortable a pull out can be before we arrived). We certainly want to stay here during future trips! And we certainly will work with Ivy Lettings in the future - we received first-rate service from our initial inquiry through our last day in London.

The Perfect Studio

  • 5 of 5

I spent three weeks (end of August, beginning of September) this year (2014) in this lovely studio and it was the highlight of my London trip. There is nothing nicer after a full day of walking through London's beautiful neighborhoods than to anticipate coming home here. Kensington High Street is steps away and yet the apartment is quiet and serene. Amenities and conveniences are described elsewhere on this page, but nothing can convey how lovely this slightly unconventional, thoughtfully furnished, large studio is.

This is one of London's most exclusive neighbourhoods and this family-friendly vacation rental is close to one of its most desirable streets, making this Kensington holiday apartment a hugely popular choice for visitors to London on holiday or those seeking corporate accommodation.
