When you suggest a holiday cottage to someone chances are they imagine an idyllic retreat in a rural oasis – basically, a picture postcard brought to life. Mention an apartment in London on the other hand and they probably go for the opposite: a place where you trade quiet for vibrancy, and relaxation for a host of things to see and do. The truth, as our new Cottage of the Week proves, lies somewhere in-between.
Clarence Mews is located within inner southeast London on the south bank of the Thames. You’ll find popular tourist haunts like the Tower of London, Tate Modern, the London Eye and the O2 arena are all close by. A variety of galleries and museums are within equally easy reach and practical needs can be met with a shop that’s only 500 yards away and a pub/restaurant closer still at 200 yards.
With so much to see and do on your doorstep you’d be forgiven for thinking that finding peace, quiet and relaxation at Clarence Mews will be something of a challenge. Thankfully, that’s not the case – but we doubt you’ll be too upset to be proven wrong! Alongside the spacious rooms that make up this stylish townhouse you’ll find a delightful enclosed garden with decked patio and furniture. There are few better places to appreciate summer in the city in complete privacy.
Move indoors and you’ll find a host of entertainment options, including a flat-screen TV with HD satellite, a DVD player with a small selection of films, a Playstation 2, an iPod dock and internet access. You’ll also find the sofas and soft furnishings provide a more than adequate level of comfort to aid your appreciation of the entertainment!
Like the city that surrounds it, there’s a whole lot more to discover at Clarence Mews. To find out more and make a booking please visit the property’s listing on cottages4you.
