Property description

CORNWALL GARDENS, SW 7 South Kensington. Superb light bright two double bedroom lower ground floor apartment. Key access to Gardens opposite the apartment.

KITCHEN REVAMPED WITH NEW FLOOR & OVEN WITH CERAMIC HOB

ONLY 5 MINUTES WALK TO GLOUCESTER RD TUBE!!

SUPERB SAFE AREA ON DISTRICT, PICCADILLY & CENTRAL TUBE LINES!
(When coming to London it's important to find out what tube lines the area is in.)

WIFI IS INCLUDED AS WELL AS ALL THE UTILITY BILLS!!

ALL INCLUSIVE - NO EXTRAS

£500 damage deposit, returned on day of departure.

5 NIGHT STAY please add £100
6 NIGHT STAY add £65
This covers extra work for David's check-in and Laura's cleans.

This quiet light bright two double bedroom property is located on the lower ground floor of a Victorian conversion.
The apartment consists of a comfortable spacious living room with feature skylights, MODERISED kitchen with integrated appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, clothes-dryer, microwave, fridge oven & ceramic hob, toaster, kettle, cutlery etc.

There is also a TV and DVD player with miscellaneous CDs and DVDS as well as its own book collection, so you can curl up with a novel on cosy sofas after a day’s sight-seeing.

*The rental price is inclusive of all electricity and heating charges, council tax, check - out cleaning, towels, sheets and linen and also staples in the kitchen (tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper)*
Indeed this inclusive rate is unusual for a London apartment as most charge extra for taxes and cleaning etc.
There are two compact double bedrooms with comfortable double beds and an attractive bathroom with limestone flooring and shower over the bath.
The second bedroom is the bedroom I was using when the photographer came (hence slightly creased bedclothes!!) It also has a small TV in this bedroom.
This room has a door leading to outside space. The outside space is small, but very useful for laundry purposes.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Gloucester Road on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes to Victoria station which is fifteen minutes away by cab to the flat or 3 straight tube stops to Gloucester Rd tube.

Or we have a driver who will pick you up from Heathrow. His charges are:- £55 pick up from any terminal. £40 to drop off. If there are more than 4 people it is £5 for extra person.

Location can not be beaten (check my reviews) with just a few minutes walking distance to Natural History Museum, V&A or catch a concert at the Albert Hall home to the Proms, the world’s great classical music festival.

Most important is the closeness to the tube with West-end theaters 15 mins tube ride. It's only a 5 minute walk to Hyde Park as well as Kensington High St.

I must stress that when staying in London, location, location and location is of the utmost importance and having 3 central tube lines will get you anywhere you need to get to in London without having to change lines.

Knightsbridge is close by with the famous Harrods, it's only a 5 minutes walk to Gloucester Rd tube (District, Circle & Piccadilly lines).
Olympic village 30 mins by tube.
The 49 bus (3 mins walk from the flat) takes you to the new billion pound shopping complex Westfield, passing Kensington High St on the way.

There are many international restaurants and bars in the area. Quality shopping at Waitrose and nearby Sainsburys supermarkets.
Check in 4pm - checkout 10am.

We will be on hand to meet and show you how everything works in the apartment. We will happily answer your questions and fulfil you requests in any way we can and can also hire you a car and driver to take you to and from the airport if required.
Our property manager, David lives in London and he will share his knowledge with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I live in N. Ireland with my husband and have been letting property since 1976. I lived in London before I married so it's always a good excuse to come back when reletting the apartment. I have twin girls of 30 - Claire is married and teaches A level maths. Kate is also married and is a primary school teacher. Prior to this she pioneered a charity in Uganda for the last 5 years sponsoring street children called Tomorow's Heros now renamed Freedom Heroes.

Why the Owner Chose Kensington, London, UK:
I love this property because of the location as it is just so close to everything and has a real buzz to the area. It feels very light and airy. I also still have friends in this area.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It is much quieter than most London flats as it's a rear lower ground floor flat and not underneath the building. That is why it's so light because it is not in the basement as such. This can be seen in the photos.
