Courtfield Road II, Plum Guide home in London

Click to book Courtfield Road II now: from £819 per night This elegant home in the heart of South Kensington is just the ticket for a stay in the capital. The laidback living area is a masterclass in classic meets contemporary, with antique scarlet armchairs and a rich, ornate rug sitting alongside glass balustrades and modern art canvases. Unconventionally, the bedrooms are downstairs, but we rather like the upside-down effect – who wants to be conventional anyway? Two of the bedrooms lead directly onto the patio, where stairs wind up to the lovely, shared garden. If you’re in need of even more greenery, the leafy expanse of Hyde Park is just a short walk away, along with the cultural powerhouse of the Royal Albert Hall. With its desk area, this home is perfect for those needing to mix business and pleasure. It’s also a great base for families, with the area's famous museums just down the road, and the nearest tube station (Gloucester Road) is a two-minute walk away, where trains wait to whisk you into the heart of the city.
