Cornwall Mews South, Kensington, Sleeps 4.
Additional Location Information
Kensington is frequently associated with the city’s best dressed and well-heeled. As such, it is no surprise that it is notable in particular for its main commercial artery, Kensington High Street, home of the Whole Foods Market flagship store and a vast selection of affordable brand names. Moving westwards takes you to Shepherd’s Bush, home of the behemoth Westfield shopping centre, the largest urban mall in Europe. Alighting at the South Kensington tube stop, you begin to understand the area’s reputation as the city’s heart of high-brow culture. Right next to the station you will find a tightly knit (and well signposted) corridor of museums and galleries, all of which date from the 1851 Great Exhibition, whose profits Prince Albert used to regenerate the area. This includes the V&A;, Science and Natural History Museums, as well as the Royal Albert Hall. The beauty of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park adds weight to London's title of most verdant city of its size in the world.

Felt like home in a cozy and inviting flat in a great London loc
The perfect flat for our London trip with our family of four, located in a quiet alley in the Kensington area. 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.
A real charmer in a fantastic location!
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.
Response from Ivy Lettings - 10/09/2012
Dear Guest, Many thanks for your kind review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in future. Sincerely, Guy van der Westhuizen (MD, Ivy Lettings)
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!
A little gem in Kensington
Cornwall Mews south is a charming apartment in a delightful little mews in Kensington. 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.

Perfect location, comfort and amenities
This flat was perfect for our family of 4 adults - great for preparing a quick breakfast in the morning and relaxing in after hours out exploring. 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.
Terrific location, comfortable flat
The location was fabulous...easy to walk to park, shops, restaurants, grocery store, and tube to all locations. Flat was very comfortable and quiet, despite being close to hustle and bustle locations! Staff at Ivy Lettings were very helpful and responsive...a few minor problems were addressed immediately.
Beds were a teensy bit hard, but overall flat was extremely comfortable. Will definitely look to stay here (or in another Ivy Lettings flat) on our next trip.
For a combination work trip/vacation we were hoping to find a 2-bedroom flat in a quiet mews in South Kensington. This flat was perfect for us. 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.

It is a home away from home with a great location.
Kate Ross of Ivy Lettings was very helpful and most accommodating to us. 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.

The best place I've ever stayed!
I can't say enough about this wonderful flat. The location was very handy to the Tube and shops. The area is quiet and you would never know that you were in a very busy city. Comfy beds and homey atmosphere. All modern appliances were in great working order and it was great to have meals at home once and a while to save on restaurant costs. The staff at Ivy Lettings were so welcoming and helpful. I would definately use them again.

A Hidden Gem!
My husband, myself and our 5 year old stayed at Cornwall Mews South for a week and I would highly recommend it to family and friends. It is a spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable and well maintained 2 bedroom that easily sleeps 4 plus has a sofa bed in the living room. It is very quiet and convenient to everything (there is a Waitrose just around the corner) including the Gloucester Road tube station, high street, restaurants, banking etc. and has all of the amenities you could possibly need (dishwasher, washer, equipped kitchen etc). This is our third rental from Ivy Lettings and they are first class - extremely helpful, efficient, prompt, friendly, responsive, professional and polite. What more could you ask for?
Ivy Lettings were very professional and provided great service. They found family accommodation at short notice in a very convenient location which suited our needs. The property was clean and well maintained with all the necessary amenities and in a great location.

Lovely apartment, serene location
The service we received from Guy at Ivy Lettings was just right. He answered all our questions and met us at the property to introduce us to the apartment and give us keys. The apartment itself is quite lovely, with two comfortable bedrooms and a spacious living area. The bathroom was luxurious, we thought, with a large tub and shower with great water pressure and a good supply of hot water. The kitchen was more than adequate and it was very nice to have facilities to keep juice and some snacks handy.
There is a large supermarket and a smaller late-hours food market within two blocks, so it was convenient to pick up some food for the apartment. There were also plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. The neighborhood is fantastic, and the location on the Mews meant that the apartment was very quiet and picturesque. The tube lines that stopped just a couple blocks away were convenient for getting to all of the tourist sights without needing to transfer. All in all, it's a great location and a very nice place to stay!

A really beautiful apartment in a delightful Kensington Mews setting. The apartment was really well appointed, very clean and had everything we needed to make us feel at home, including free WiFi. The location was superb, really close to two major supermarkets, Waitrose and Sainsburys, numerous resturants, pubs and Gloucester Rd Tube Station.
We'd like to say a big thank you to Guy and his team at Ivy lettings for helping us to choose the right apartment and their help in making our stay so enjoyable.
