This apartment is a beautiful, quintessentially English property, and the ideal space for your trip to London. It is perfectly styled & brilliantly located – 5 minutes from the tube, and 10 minutes to the museum district!
There’s lots of space, with a gorgeous sitting/dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen for you to dine in comfort, as well as two tasteful bedrooms.
There is even a fab terrace for a glass of wine in the evening sun, overlooking Onslow Square Gardens.
This is a fantastically spacious apartment, located in fashionable Kensington, just 5 minutes from South Kensington Tube, where you will find some of London’s most famous attractions:
South Kensington Tube Station – 5 mins

Victoria & Albert Museum – 9 mins
Science Museum – 10 mins
Hyde Park – 15 mins
Harrods – 15 mins
Oxford Street – 15 mins (by tube)

The apartment itself is on the 3rd floor (with an elevator). The height gives you stunning views of Kensington’s gardens and period houses, and overlooks the local church – an incredibly special, peaceful view in the hustle and bustle of London.
There are two comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom has a beautiful, antique four-poster double bed, and a huge dressing room! there is also the bright terrace – perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening! (there is a table and chairs on here which is not pictured). The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with both a shower and a bath, so there is plenty of privacy.
The second bedroom has two single beds and is a truly charming space overlooking the garden and church – this historic church does chime on the hour, so light sleepers may want ear plugs.
The sitting and dining room is both tasteful and wonderfully decorated, the perfect space to relax and unwind after a day exploring London.
One of the crowning glories of this stunning apartment is the access to Onslow Gardens. Guests can access this garden with the key provided – a rare treat in the urban London landscape.
Guests have access to the entire apartment, except for the study (not pictured and the door will be closed), and some of the cupboards (which will be marked).
