Overview

Ideal for Kids

South Kensington Place is a vibrant and stylish mews home, finished with grace and verve, offering top-spec accommodation and tranquillity whilst being in the heart of one of London’s most refined neighbourhoods.

Offering generously proportioned living space, set across three storeys, this home accommodates up to six guests, across three sumptuous bedrooms, along with three bathrooms. This charismatic home provides sleek, open plan living; the lounge area is elegant, whilst having a trendy edge - an eclectic mix of contemporary art, oil paintings, retro furnishings and splashes of vivid colour give this home abundant character.

All the hallmarks of quality are present; as well as bold touches: pillar box red leather mid-century style chair; glass wall, beautiful and unusual safari print upholstered dining chairs, vivacious wall art. South Kensington Place offers a chic city abode, for the style-aware traveller. Living spaces flow into a sultry, edgy kitchen - the skylight cleverly maximises natural daylight, whilst the black, glossy, handleless design, top-grade appliances and Eastern-inspired artwork create an opulent space for self-catering.

There is a second reception room, a cutting-edge and rather “rock-n-roll” nook finished with bold red walls and plush fabrics, leather and polished brass framed art; an ideal “den” to sit back and curl up with a book, a glass of wine or enjoy the wall-mounted television.

The bedrooms offer two king sized beds, one single bed as well as the option of an additional trundle. Similarly, the bedrooms are tasteful yet quirky, with accents of vivacious primarily colour, offset by crisp, quality linen and balcony views. Full of surprising twists, refined elegance is mixed up with a modern edge!

South Kensington Place offers beautiful, characterful bedrooms that depart from “sterile hotel anonymity” to offer restorative, tranquil yet suave resting spaces. The solid wood furnishings are a stylish mix of old and new, whilst the Arabic style cobalt blue, bottle green and antique furnishings offer an urbane mix alongside the sleek, marble finished contemporary bathrooms.

The pièce de resistance is a stunning, decked balcony, with dining furniture and rooftop views, offering an exquisite spot for a fresh morning coffee as the city wakes up, or an evening glass of wine before hitting the West End!

South Kensington Place offers a haven of style and peace, a sophisticated home where every detail and comfort has been provided, along with hotel-level services such as personal welcome, on-call host support, plush toiletries and fluffy towels. Guests will be able to step out and be in the heart of one of the most vibrant and eclectic parts of London, or escape from the madding crowds into a devilishly stylish pied-a-terre!

South Kensington Place is nestled in a sought after, classical mews street. Petersham Mews is set back from the bustling, tourist hotspots, within a bijou original mews street, offering the very best of a local neighbourhood, along with endless opportunities just a few moments beyond in the heart of London’s Royal Borough where both modern culture and history jostle side by side.

Petersham Mews offers original, cobbled charm - which forms part of Kensington’s ‘Queen’s Gate” conservation area; originally used as coach houses and stable accommodation, these homes now offer prestigious residential accommodation. The nearest station is Gloucester Road tube which is about a four-minute walk away.

The street still has an original neighbourhood appeal, with traditional “old school” style pubs and cafes, there is a sense of local life. For French cuisine, “L’Etranger,” or “Mersault” are both good options, whilst Da Mario offers excellent quality Italian cuisine, these are just a two-minute walk away.

Around South Kensington station, there is a pedestrianised area very popular with tourists which offers a huge choice of informal eateries; for cupcakes, the Hummingbird Bakery on Old Brompton Road has become an iconic attraction!

This vibrant area is home to some of London’s finest museums: the V&A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum; guests should time their visits around off-peak times to avoid the school holiday crush!

As well as the world-renowned museums, there are many, fascinating and intriguing lesser-known museums and galleries. The Design Museum is set in a grade ll listed building in Kensington High Street; the building has been transformed by a team led by the well-known architect John Pawson - from fashion to furniture, from product to graphic design, this is an international designers’ hub.

Eighteen Stafford Terrace is just a few moments walk away, for a virtually untouched and immaculately preserved slice of Victorian living, one of the only genuine Victorian townhouses remaining, it has become something of a hidden national treasure.

Located on the edge of Holland Park, Leighton House Museum is one of the most opulent museums in London; the ornate nineteenth-century home of Lord Leighton is decorated with domed ceilings, gilded walls, flamboyant artwork and fountains. This is a small scale museum which makes for a nice afternoon’s activity, whilst Holland Park itself is small, little known by tourists, and offers something of a secret escape into woodlands, wild ponds and pavilions; set in one of London’s most elegant areas, it makes for a romantic stroll or day out as a family.

High Street Kensington is just moments away, which offers a wide array of high street boutiques and a flagship Whole Foods store, whilst Notting Hill is a short bus ride up the road, and for a treat, The Orangery at Kensington Palace Gardens offers an unapologetically decadent and elegant dining experience!

Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

South Kensington Place is suitable for babies and older children, but not toddlers (it is set over three storeys.)

Children will enjoy the suave interiors and stylish touches; this is every inch the sleek, city “pad.” There is a single bed, as well as a trundle, which are both ideal for children. The vibrant pops of bright red, green and blue provide a playful feel.

The open plan layout offers an easy living for families, with two reception rooms, for those who have different entertainment needs, and ample family dining space. Parents can relax knowing there is a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and every appliance needed!

Teens can rest in the knowledge that all modern touches are present: satellite television, cable and wifi - whilst the lounging “den” offers a great space to unwind when “downtime” is on order!

Only Kensington could have a members club for kids! Maggie & Rose is open on weekdays from 9am to 7pm and drop-in classes are available; classes include mini musicians, crafty creative play and messy masters art. Children up to the age of nine are welcome ; there are a soft play area and an excellent cafe for parents.

This neighbourhood has endless possibilities for children’s activities. Holland Park Adventure Playground is an excellent choice on a warm day, offering so much from swings to mini climbing wall to the aerial runway! This is the Royal Borough’s largest park with over twenty-two hectares of gardens, play facilities, cafe and woodland.

A further great option is the Princess Diana Memorial Playground; this magical world of pirate ships and intriguing sculptures as well as tepees and a sensory trail will spark endless creativity and make-believe play for children of all ages,

The Natural History Museum is a whole day’s activity, whilst the Science Museum has an excellent children’s sensory space with many hands-on style activities.

For possible rainy days, Queens Bowling & Ice offers ten-pin bowling alleys and ice rink, together with an American diner style cafe, whilst KidZania in Shepherd’s Bush is an indoor city built just for children, offering a child-sized cityscape with such a breadth of activities that parents and children alike will be able to while hours away.

Whatever the season, whatever the child’s interests, parents can rest assured that this part of London can provide an abundance of indoor, outdoor, active or non-active, team-based or individual activities. When its time to eat, the options are just endless, whether they have adventurous palates and want to try something different, or stick to a reliable Pizza Express, this neighbourhood truly has it covered!
