A short walk from High Street Kensington, this understated apartment whispers its style credentials. A peaceful pied-à-terre for couples.

It’s hard to believe you’re mere minutes’ walk from Kensington’s buzzy High Street. There’s a hush around Abingdon Road’s leafy parade of residential Georgian terraces. Inside this one-bed apartment, an almost monotone palette of off-whites, ashen floors and period details keep things equally calm.

The elegant living room quietly impresses with its marble fireplace, delicate decor and come-sit-down sofas that beckon after a day on your feet. Through an open doorway, the eat-in kitchen has a modern-country feel, as well as all the cookware you’d expect in a home kitchen. Just make sure to pick up a few ingredients from nearby Whole Foods. Breakfast around the intimate dining table, pushing back the French doors for coffee on the private whitewashed patio.

Integrated wardrobes help with the fuss-free fancy of the bedroom, where a king-size bed leads to a spacious en suite with bath and generous shower. A space to refresh and reset. Good news, because some of London’s star attractions are on your doorstep: Holland Park, Exhibition Road. Stride out and you’ll reach High Street Kensington station in five minutes.

We have rented through Ivy Lettings on several occasions now and each time we have stayed at a lovely property and the experience has been easy. I recommend Ivy Lettings to anyone lookng for an apartment stay in London and look forward to booking through them again in the future. This last trip we stayed at the Abingdon Road flat. The location in Kensington is excellent, very near Holland Park and an easy walk to Kensington Gardens. There are three very good, one actually outstanding, restaurants right on the street. The flat is extremely comfortable for one or two people. It is nicely outfitted, making it easy to feel right at home for the (too short) week we were there.

Enjoyed an excellent stay at the Abingdon property. Loved the flat, very cosy atmosphere. Few minutes walk from both High St. Kensington as well as Earl's Court tube stations. Sainsbury, Waterstones, McDonalds, Five Guys, and plenty of shopping options nearby (two minutes walk from the property). Ivy Lettings staff very helpful and the whole procedure went extremely smoothly, from booking to finally checking out. Great experience.

Everything about our booking with Ivy Lettings was great. From a good selection of properties to the ease of booking made our holiday planning very easy. The apartment on Abingdon Road was lovely with a cafe two doors down and a pub across the street. High Street Kensington shops were just three blocks away. I am a retired travel journalist for a major Canadian newspaper chain and have had many opportunities to experience holiday rentals in many countries. In retirement, London is now our choice of holidays and we look forward to another enjoyable visit next year. When our dates are set, I’ll be getting in touch with Ivy Lettings and hopefully the same apartment will be available.

Using Ivy since 2012, last stay September 2018, accumulating 12 stays over that period of time. Staff is responsive and very helpful from property selection to checkout. Properties are reasonably priced and well placed in the London area. Five star service!
