Great flat

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent a week at this wonderful flat. Great location with easy access to central London whether by tube or bus. A 10 minute walk to the Thames. The flat is clean, with a comfortable sofa bed. Several restaurants and great pubs within minutes walking of the flat.

Nigel thank you very much for the use of your flat.

Location was very good with bus stop, tube station & grocery stores close by.

  • 3 of 5

This property has a great location to explore London but the traffic noise & people talking in the street below was very clear inside the apartment. This is due to it being an older building with no double glazing on the windows. If you're a heavy sleeper then you'll be fine, but light sleepers will need ear plugs like I did. Helene explained everything in detail on our arrival & Nigel emailed clear instructions on getting to the apartment from Kennington Underground - very helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi I just wanted to respond that the windows are indeed double glazed. The building was designed in a Georgian style but built in 1993. There is little we can do about sirens and traffic noise in central London. It’s the trade off for being in central London.

Clean, comfortable apartment in noisy but nice neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice and clean with good access to the underground and other transportation. There were an awful lot of labels saying don't do this and don't do that around the flat, but overall it was comfortable. We did have an incident with the shower, but the owner took care of it in good time. The only drawback is the noise from outside. There were constant sirens and large trucks coming by. Luckily, I'm not a light sleeper, but my niece is and she suffered a bit. I did not know the neighborhood before and was happy that it was safe and filled with restaurants and pubs. Lots of fun.

Convenient location; fully equipped flat

  • 4 of 5

The flat well suited our purpose to explore London. Transportation to anywhere in London was easily attained. The flat was very clean, had everything we needed for the week's stay, was safe and there is a small market very close. Several nice restaurants are close by, in short walking distance, as well as a lovely park. The flat helped us enjoy our time in London. There was some traffic noise and noise from the pub across the street during the weekend we were there. Other than than that, the flat was perfect for us.

Charming flat close to London sights

  • 4 of 5

We had not stayed in the Kennington area until this visit but found it to be a great neighborhood for us- easy to get into the city either by public transport or even walking. As advertised, shops, restaurants and pubs were all close by. The flat is comfortable and all the appliances worked well.

Nigel, the owner was available to help us get settled in and was very responsive to our questions and concerns. We would recommend staying here.

A stunning first floor one double bedroom apartment in the heart of centrally located, vibrant Kennington.

Kennington is one of inner London's best kept secrets. It’s an enclave of brick houses and pretty squares containing some perfect examples of Georgian architecture. The most famous is the idyllic Cleaver Square, where locals play boules in the summer next to the lovely historic Prince of Wales pub in the corner.

Kennington is so central that it is reputed to be within earshot of Parliament’s Division Bell, and has been a popular place for politicians to live since Westminster Bridge was built in 1750. The genteel atmosphere and recent regeneration now also draw families, while young professionals in all fields love the central location. Kennington remains a diverse area with a mixed population and feels full of life.

Going out...


You can enjoy a wide range of cuisines here, from Persian to Eritrean and beyond. Portuguese cafes and tapas bars of the South Lambeth Road are well known for their authenticity. The Lobster Pot on Kennington Lane is regarded as one of London’s best French seafood restaurants, the daytime Ragged Canteen is an excellent vegetarian lunch spot and the upmarket Brunswick House close to Vauxhall serves up an imaginative seasonal menu amid recycled furniture, antiques and curios.


There are plenty of great pubs and bars in the area. Locals love Cleaver Square’s cosy Prince of Wales, or try Zeitgeist, a German gastropub offering regional beers, schnitzels and burgers. The Pilgrim Pub is a popular spot to catch live music or watch sports.

Culture & arts

Kennington is excellently placed for some of the best cultural experiences in the Capital. It’s a mere 15 minute walk to the South Bank, with its theaters, galleries and concert venues, while the Tate Britain is within walking distance, too. Closer to home is the quirky Cinema Museum, a popular venue for film screenings and talks, and there are two longstanding local repertory theaters, the White Bear Theater and Ovalhouse.


The Imperial War Museum and Garden Museum can be found here, with the popular tourist attractions of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament only a half hour stroll across the river.

Local amenities

There are 2 Tesco supermarkets within 5 minutes walk of the flat.


If the tiny hidden squares and greens that make Kennington special aren’t enough for you, Kennington Park is a Green Flag award winning green space. The old common, a site of political demonstrations and public executions, it was enclosed in 1852 becoming an urban park where you’ll find mature trees, an old fashioned flower garden and cafe, as well as playgrounds and tennis courts.

Visit the farm animals at nearby Vauxhall City Farm and check out a range of workshops, as well as a horse riding center.


Tube: You have the choice of four Tube stations. On the Northern Line, Kennington (5 min walk) and Oval (10 min walk) stations are both in Zone 2. Nearby Lambeth North (12 min walk) is on the Bakerloo Line and is in Zone 1. Vauxhall (Zone 1/2 - 10 min walk) is on the Victoria line and is also a mainline station

Buses: The area is extremely well connected. Direct buses from Kennington serve all parts of central London (Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament etc.). The 360 takes you to the world famous museums in South Kensington .

Cycle: For many locals, cycling is their main mode of transport. It only takes 20 minutes to cycle to Trafalgar Square and, even if you don’t have your own bike, there is a Boris bike docking station right outside the flat. Cycle Superhighway 7 from Morden to the City runs through Kennington.

Road: Once you’re out of the traffic on the busy A3, it takes under an hour to reach the M25, or 40 minutes to get to the M1 if you’re heading north. The apartment has it's own gated allocated private parking space.

Airports: Heathrow and Gatwick - 45 minutes.
