Full Description & House Rules
33 Percy Street is in a residential area, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac just north of the centre of the famous medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon. The house has recently been refurbished from top to bottom, outside and in, while retaining its 1930’s features, including the front door’s Art Deco stained-glass.
At the front is a gravelled parking area for two cars. A side gate opens to a path leading to a south-facing patio and garden – a secluded and private suntrap that is accessed from the inside through the kitchen-dining room’s sliding doors. The patio has a BBQ and outdoor dining table and seating for six, providing a fabulous space to enjoy al fresco drinks and meals.
The moment you step inside and peek into the living room and dining area you’ll feel the wow factor of 33 Percy Street’s refurbishment. On the ground floor is a living room with a large smart TV and contemporary electric fireplace.

Full Property Description
Open the original, 1930’s door with its Art Deco, stained glass and step into the hallway where there are hooks to hang coats and space to leave outdoor shoes.
This lovely room at the front of the house, features an original bay window with half-height wooden shutters and a striking red earth-coloured feature wall. The room comfortably seats six guests on two sofas and a large bean bag and has a smart TV (with Xbox) and flame-effect, contemporary fireplace with mood lighting.
Continue through to the rear of the house and into the uber-stylish kitchen-dining room. At one end is a rectangular, oak dining table set in front of a milky plum-coloured wall with film set-style lighting. At the other end is the fabulous kitchen, with a long central island and four bar stools, the hob and sink, a seating area with a comfy sofa below a striking lantern ceiling and a fully-equipped kitchen with every appliance needed concealed behind floor-to-ceiling units. At the far end is an all-glass end wall that slides open to the patio and garden. On a sunny day with the glass doors fully open, this beautiful room feels like it is part of the garden. This whole area has underfloor heating beneath engineered-oak flooring.
Off the dining area is a handy utility room with a washing machine, sink, clothes airer, ironing equipment, and cupboards and shelves with cleaning/washing products. Please note the ironing equipment and cloths airer are stored in the large cupboards in the kitchen.
Head up the carpeted staircase with its eye-catching, Art Deco-style bannister to the first-floor landing off which is one double bedroom, a twin bedroom and the family bathroom.
Overlooking the garden and the top of the kitchen, this light and cheerful double bedroom is furnished with a standard double bed on a Victorian-style metal bedframe, with bedside tables and reading lamps. A free-standing wardrobe with hangers and drawers provides hanging and storage space.
The ideal room for young guests or two older friends sharing a room, with two full-size single beds on pretty, wooden bed frames and a shared bedside table and reading lamp (not shown). A free-standing wardrobe with hangers and drawers provides plenty of hanging and storage space.
With floor-to-ceiling polished tiling, this bathroom is both stylish and practical. It is fitted with a full-size bath with a shower over, a toilet, wash basin and vanity unit with a mirror and a heated towel rail.
Open the door at the end of the first-floor landing and head up the staircase, with its Art Deco-style bannister, to the master bedroom.
Bedroom 3 – Master bedroom
This top-floor room – once the attic – has been cleverly converted into a super-stylish and spacious, dual aspect ensuite bedroom, which overlooks the garden and rooftops of the neighbouring houses. The bedroom is furnished with a standard double bed on a handsome Victorian-style bedframe, with bedside chests of drawers and reading lamps, and a free-standing wardrobe with hanging space and drawers. Three Velux windows (with blinds) throw light down the staircase and onto the seating area where there is a small day chair.
Ensuite Shower Room
The stylish ensuite has floor-to-ceiling polished tiling, a double walk-in shower with rainfall and hand-held shower heads, a toilet, a hand basin, a vanity unit with a mirror, and a heated towel rail.
Open the sliding doors in the kitchen to a large, private patio, with a six-person garden table, six foldaway chairs – for dining or sunbathing – a parasol and a large charcoal BBQ – the perfect place to enjoy outdoor dining. Steps lead up to a lawn, a lovely spot for relaxing and sunbathing in this suntrap of a garden.
A path leads down the side of the house to a gate, with padlock, which leads to the front of the house. A storage unit sits side down the side of the house. Inside guests will find a BBQ for six adults and six, foldaway chairs. The rubbish and recycle bins are also stored in this area. (Please note: the photos show a smaller table and four chairs. These have been updated as described above.) To the front of the property is a planted, gravel area with parking for two cars.
Stratford-upon-Avon is a year-round destination, with 33 Percy Street less than a mile’s walk of everything the town has to offer, including the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Shakespeare Museum, which has been built around the original house Shakespeare was born and grew up in, Tudor World, Magic Alley and a huge choice of eating and drinking venues. We highly recommended guests book a show at the Royal Theatre or the Playhouse.
Less than 10 miles away is Warwick Castle, a fantastic day out for all ages. Or, if you like your history more natural, then Kenilworth Castle, 15 miles away, is a must-visit. Leamington Spa, which is a gorgeous Victorian Spa town with beautiful buildings and fabulous shopping, is a recommended visit and is only 12 miles away.
For everyday food shopping, the Maybird Shopping Park is just 15 minutes’ walk away and has an M&S Foods. Continue just past Maybird where there’s a Tesco Superstore (with fuel station). Stratford-upon-Avon has a mouth-watering choice of local and artisan produce available at the farmers market and at independent city-centre food stores.
Just two minutes’ walk from the house is the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal footpath, which guests can follow into the centre of town. Head in the opposite direction and link up to the Avon River Walk from Stratford-upon-Avon to Welford – a 9km linear walk with an option to turn it into a circular route.
A pleasant 20-minute walk takes you to the lovely village of Shottery, on the edge of Stratford Upon Avon, where you can visit Anne Hathaway’s beautiful cottage, the birthplace and childhood home of William Shakespeare’s wife.
To fully see what Stratford has to offer, enjoy a short circular walk along the River Avon up to the racecourse. This 1.5-mile route will pass key landmarks such as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Stratford Butterfly Farm. Alternatively, follow the River Avon all the way to Marcliff on a leisurely walk or hop on a bike (see Guidebook for bike hire) and embark on a 26-mile canal ride all the way to Birmingham. If you are a member of National Trust, Charlecote Park is only a 15-minute drive away and has a deer park and stunning waterfall.
