If Bertie Wooster were to come to town, we think he’d be rather taken by this home. A spacious apartment in a red brick mansion, the pale, gracious rooms are British as port and stilton. There are sofas aplenty for your pre-dinner snifter, and should any young ladies need perambulating, you’ve mature communal gardens. And when it’s time to make mischief, South Kensington is filled with seen-and-be-seen restaurants. Renew your wardrobe in the outfitters of nearby Knightsbridge or stay out past your bedtime at Kensington Roof Gardens. Just don’t tell Aunt Agatha…
Your hosts spend much of their time in the countryside, nipping into the city from time to time to meet old chums. They’re from the New World, and they’re charmed by all things English.
With knobs on
The sitting room’s a top spot for entertaining, with its traditional furniture, a wood fire and a glass coffee table that only needs adorning with champagne. The kitchen’s cosily rustic, and your Jeeves will appreciate the La Rochere glassware and chandelier. The two bedrooms, one double and one twin, are eminently comfortable, and each has its own bathroom, so your morning’s ablutions can be as leisurely as you deserve.
Children over the age of 10 are more than welcome to stay here.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
