33 Percy Street is a 1930’s, semi-detached holiday home, with an immaculately refurbished exterior that hides a contemporary and stylish interior. This town-centre, three-storey home sleeps six guests across three delightful, double bedrooms, with 2.5 bathrooms, one of them ensuite. The open-plan kitchen-dining area is a fabulous socialising hub, opening out to a large patio and lawn, while at the front is the living room with original features blending perfectly with the contemporary styling. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Shakespeare Museum, pubs, restaurants, and the town’s year-round events are a short walk away. In addition, Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle and Royal Leamington Spa are just 10-15 miles away and the Cotswolds, Oxford town, Blenheim Palace and Silverstone are all within a 50-minute drive.
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.
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.
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.
Bedroom Three – Master bedroom:
This top-floor room - once the attic - has been cleverly converted into a super-stylish and spacious, dual aspect Art-Deco style 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.

We stayed at Percy Street for a family celebration. It's well located for Stratford centre, parking was good, and it's at the end of a quiet close. The garden and kitchen/diner were great to celebrate in with family, and the whole property feels very clean, newly decorated and fresh. I can't think of any reason not to recommend staying here.
Had a fantastic stay here during the jubilee week and enjoyed it so much. The house is spotless, minimalistic, and very classy. Loved the kitchen and dining areas. So beautiful to get up in the morning to such a bright open space. Had everything needed for a perfect stay.
Wonderful stay. We couldn’t of asked for more. Everything has been done out to 100% perfection. Will definitely stay again!
A lovely location, we found it very easily and the cul-de-sac is quiet and peaceful, it is a short walk into town, the shops and all the attractions that Stratford had to offer. The house is lovely, the lounge is big and comfortable, the kitchen is huge and a great space to be together with big doors to the garden. Some cupboards are very high and for some of us, who are a little shorter, they are too high, we struggled to get a cup/glass down and had to ask for help, which was a little annoying. The bedrooms are big, the beds appeared very small and there were no clocks, of any variety in there, maybe an alarm clock or a wall clock would be helpful, this was throughout the whole house, not just the bedrooms. There is a lack of space in the en-suite, eg: no shelf or anything to put shower stuff in when having a shower. The front door, the lock is a strange lock and getting out the door was more difficult as it was little and fiddly, there isn't anything really to grip in order to turn it.
We had a lovely long weekend here. Very clean, comfortable and attractive house which is only a short walk away from the station and the centre of town. Very quiet area and a lovely big sunny garden with a decent sized garden table and comfortable garden chairs. This house would be excellent for long weekends and longer stays. Check in was easy and instructions were clear and we had contact details for our host if needed. We were 4 adults with a 5th visitor over one night and felt we had loads of room. Would recommend to friends and family.
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, Shakespeare Museum, Tudor World, Magic Alley, a huge choice of eating and drinking venues, a farmers’ market, high street names and independent shops and boutiques. The Maybird Shopping Park, with an M&S Food Store is just 15 minutes’ walk away. In addition, Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle and Royal Leamington Spa are just 10-15 miles away and the Cotswolds, Oxford town, Blenheim Palace and Silverstone are all within a 50-minute drive.
