Mews Charm at the Hyde Park
We can’t say enough how much we love London mews houses. They are simply the epitome of London charm! You’ll find our Hyde Park vacation rental located down a quiet mews lined with cobblestones and pretty little houses. Each one of the mews has a private entrance, which is an excellent feature. The secluded setting away from busy streets just adds to the exclusive setting. You feel like you’re arriving to your a hidden away abode that is your own private retreat after a day out and about in London.
Follow the steps from the entrance down to the garden level apartment where you’ll find a cheerful open plan living room with a dining area, lovely kitchen and access to your own patio – perfect for a summer day! Sink into the comfortable sofa and enjoy the light-filled space from the large patio door and the sunlight over the living room. We love how the décor so beautifully blends the warm-colored stone ceiling with pops of color from the fun artwork decorating the walls. In the bedroom you’ll find a relaxing atmosphere thanks to the serene soft blue walls, muted tones and the large window overlooking the garden patio.
When you arrive, it won’t take long for you to realize why mews houses are such sought-after properties in London. Even better, the Hyde Park is set on a quiet mews only a few minutes’ walk from gorgeous Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Don’t miss the chance to visit Kensington Palace, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family. You’ll also find Royal Albert Hall, one of the best performing arts venues in London, and Museum Row just around the corner. Head to Kensington High Street or trendy South Kensington for fabulous shopping or simply stroll through the streets and garden squares of Kensington to a local pub for dinner or drinks. Everything we love about Kensington is right on your ever so charming doorstep at Hyde Park!
Your Corner of Kensington at Shelbourne
Overlooking one of Kensington’s prettiest garden squares and set in a row of historic terraced homes, Shelbourne is a beautiful apartment any moment of the year, but especially so for summer stays. That’s because this spacious one-bedroom apartment has its own private outdoors terrace, which is incredibly rare for a central London apartment. Guests also receive keys to the gated communal garden square, which is a lovely spot to relax outdoors. You’ll enjoy a view of that gorgeous garden from three large windows in the living room. Everything about the Shelbourne’s setting will make you feel right at home in one of London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.
Beautiful light fills the living room, which features plenty of comfortable seating, including a sofa bed that can be opened for additional sleeping space. The bedroom has a calm feel with muted colours and small staircase leading up to a sun room. How is that for a dreamy spot to keep up with work while traveling or relaxing with a good book? Access to the private terrace is located just through the sun room.
We particularly enjoy starting the day with breakfast in the dining nook, located just off the kitchen, with its window bench and view overlooking the leafy garden square.
For charm and convenience, this Kensington location couldn’t be better. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and cute cafe choices as well as excellent food shopping all just a few minutes’ walk away. Hop on the Tube at Gloucester Road nearby to easily reach all corners of London. Enjoying a morning run or leisurely walk through Kensington Gardens is a favorite local pastime. Fall in love with London all over again at the Shelbourne!
