Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom mews house in Kensington

This luxury one bedroom London holiday rental is set in one of the most charming and quintessentially ‘London’ parts of the capital. The apartment is located in the ground floor of a beautiful Mews house on a beautiful cobbled Mews street. The Mews street is more than reminiscent of the ‘old’ London and walking on to the street you will know you are somewhere special. It is the perfect home-away-from-home for a stay in the capital.

The Mews house is located less than ten minutes walk from both Earls Court and High Street Kensington tube stations. High Street Kensington is close to tourist attractions such as Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens, London’s museum quarter and the edge of Hyde Park. The high street area is also one of London’s more exclusive shopping and dining areas.

The London holiday home is accessible for disabled guests as it all sits on the ground floor. Please note that there is a step to enter the apartment and that no disabled modifications have been made to the property.

Entering from Radley Mews, you come straight into the main living space. The living space has a cosy feel which is perfect for relaxing in during London’s often changeable weather. You’ll find a gorgeously comfortable, large sofa which works also as a sofa bed for two guests and comfy armchair to kick back and relax in. There is also some nifty storage as well as flat screen TV and WiFi.

Off the living room is the generously sized master bedroom complete with king size bed, sleeping two guests. The rest of the room also includes a large fitted wardrobe with considerable space. The room is decorated and finished in a modern style and to a very high standard, as is the rest of the Mews house. Recline on sumptuous sheets and beautifully soft bed linen.

The real star of the Mews house holiday rental is the fabulous and spacious fitted kitchen. Appliances include an induction hob and Nespresso coffee maker, as well as dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and large fridge. Please see the facilities list below for more information. To cook with, there is a built in oven for preparing fantastic meals as well as microwave for quicker dinners or long lazy lunches made with produce from the area’s great markets. The kitchen space also includes a simple yet elegant dining area with seating for two with a fold down table.

The secluded kitchen and dining space makes a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying meals with a glass of wine, of two!

At the opposite end of the kitchen to the entrance are beautiful wide, double wooden doors. Behind this is the stunning fitted marble bathroom. Here you will find a gorgeously spacious walk in shower enclosure as well as sink on the marble counter and a WC. We have provided all your toiletries and travel essentials as well as plush, fluffy white towels.

The Mews house is situated just off Stratford Road which locals describe as a ‘village’ within London. Here you will find a great selection of local shops including bakeries, hairdressers, beauty spas and fantastic pubs to name just a few.

Local tube stations include Earls Court on the Piccadilly line with direct access to Heathrow terminals 1,2 & 3 in around 25 minutes and to St Pancras International, the London terminus of Eurostar in around 20 minutes as well as services across the capital.

Some of the most charming and quintessentially English parts of London are the little mews streets dotted about the capital. Typically set aback from busier main roads with pretty houses, London’s mews houses provided a secluded and elegant haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. At Radley Mews, you can enjoy the peace and seclusion of one of London’s prettiest mews streets whilst being close to a wealth of attractions by being based in the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Close by your holiday home are both Kensington high street with gorgeous shops, bars, pubs and restaurants as well as South Kensington, London’s museum quarter. You’ll find a rich world of cultural heritage here with the capitals best cluster of free museums alongside iconic buildings like Kensington Palace Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall.

The world famous Natural History Museum is a short 15 minute walk or 8 minute bus ride from the Mews House. The museum is one of London’s real gems, a world renowned centre for research into the natural world as well as being a fantastic day out. You can come face-to-face with a T-Rex skeleton or take a journey through the Earth sculpture as you explore the Red Zone. In the summer months the grounds play host to the ‘Sensational Butterflies’ experience. Here you can get close up with giant butterflies and moths as they fly around and land on you. In winter the museum also hosts a ice rink.

Across the street is another icon museum, the Science Museum. The Science Museum caters to people of all ages and can keep both young and old enthralled. There are interactive displays, galleries and attractions as well as the 3D Imax cinema showing fantastic science related documentaries and films.

Finally we come to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, it is one of many monuments in the area to the Royal couple. Explore exhibitions of art, jewellery, design and clothing from the past 3000 years. Highlights include furniture, sculptures, fine ceramics and textiles.

Kensington high street seamlessly blends Victorian and modern architecture to create an area which emotes real elegance. You’ll get a feel of polished refinement and perfect finishing. Don’t worry, behind this Kensington has a genuinely inviting nature. High street highlights include Urban Outfitters and Whole Foods Market. Stop by the large organic food store and market set in a former department store. Find a delicious, healthy and reasonably priced lunch or dinner to eat in store or on the go.

Above the busy Kensington High Street you can find the hidden oasis of Kensington Roof Gardens. Sitting atop fabulous old buildings, the area is home to the award winning restaurant, Babylon. There are also beautiful gardens, four resident flamingos and fantastic bars to boot.

Kensington is home to some of London’s largest and most beautiful green spaces. At one end of Kensington High Street you’ll find Kensington Palace, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in their London residence before exploring the palace museum.

Explore the beautifully kept Kensington gardens which lead into another Royal Park and one of London’s most instantly recognisable landmarks, Hyde Park. The two parks cover a vast swath of West London and are home to numerous cafe’s as well as the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine and Long Water lakes. Enjoy them on a sunny day by hiring a pedal boat or by taking a relaxing and cooling dip in the water. Or just relax and enjoy the beautiful green oasis.

The Mews House is under 10 minutes walk from Earls Court tube station. From here you can travel directly to St Pancras station in 22 minutes, connecting with services across the UK and international services via Eurostar. You can also reach Heathrow terminals 1,2 & 3 in 25 minutes. Both are accessible via the Piccadilly line.

Perfect flat in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The flat is small, but comfortable and very thoughtfully and tastefully appointed. We also appreciated the prompt and accommodating responses from the host. Also loved the fresh flowers! The neighborhood is quiet, with shops, restaurants and a great pub nearby. We had a wonderful stay here and highly recommend Radley Mews. We will definitely stay here again!

Great location, clean and comfortable. Very noisy. Internet awful but was told it was great.

  • 2 of 5

Charming mews property in great location - close to Earl's Court and Kensington High Street. Clean, comfortable with well stocked kitchen. Friendly, fast communication with owners. Regrettably, this property was very noisy both day and night - no sound insulation so we heard every sound as neighbours used stairs behind bedroom, people walked by property or cars maneuvered the bend next to our bedroom window, and the dustbins for several homes were along our wall so we were woken constantly all night long by conversations, footsteps or cars despite wearing ear plugs! The boiler/furnace for the home was in the bedroom closet and sounded like a jet engine when it was running which happened even though we turned the heating off to try to prevent it. The other issue was the wireless internet which was totally unreliable. As my husband needed to work from home each evening, and as this was essential to him, I did enquire and explain this before booking and was told it 'we have excellent wifi which is perfect for your hubby'. He was unable to work at the property as he constantly lost connection during conference calls around the world, so worked 14 hour days at the office which was more exhausting as he couldn't make a meal or a drink until he got home. He did mention it to the owners but nothing was done. If you don't need internet. or a quiet accommodation, then this is a great property to stay at but unfortunately it didn't work for us.

Wonderful Choice In London

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed everything about Radley Mews from it's quaint neighborhood to it's updated modern conveniences. We especially appreciated the washer and dryer after 10 days of travel. Our host Paul was accommodating and helpful, explaining everything we needed to know thoroughly. And we really appreciated Karen, the property manager. From my initial contact to questions during our stay, she would always respond literally within minutes. This is an efficient well run company and it shows. I give this property and staff my highest recommendation!

Well designed and located!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The Mews house/apartment is so well designed. The high ceilings make the apartment seem much larger. Lots of storage space. The kitchen is particularly well stocked. Even though the bath (which is great!) is off the kitchen, there are lovely wooden sliding doors which closes it off. The washer and dryer are very good. Also, there is a dishwasher which worked well. We highly recommend this VRBO unit!

Perfect location for access to all the best places in London!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the neighborhood!! Tube was very close, and everything we needed for five days, was at our fingertips. The flat was adorable and very well equipped. The neighbors were very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. It was perfect for the two of us. I will always stay here when I visit London! No need for me to try any other locations!

High-Quality Rental in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property: high-end touches and very clean. The layout may not suite some, as you have to pass through the bedroom to get to the kitchen and then through the kitchen to get to the bath. It was not an issue for us.

We found the property to be delightful, and I plan on booking this agin in the future.
