Property of the month: Percy Place

If you want to truly experience the Georgian heritage of Bath, staying at Percy Place is a good way to start. Percy Place is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian house, that was once the home of the renowned nonconformist preacher, Rev William Jay who preached at the Argyle Chapel until his death in 1853. The church is still standing and can be found on Argyle Street, just over Pulteney Bridge.

Percy Place is a charming period property where guests can really enjoy the experience of living in a real Georgian house, a very different experience than staying in a big hotel!

Simona Thompson, who runs Percy Place, said: “We are a family run business with only two rooms and we do our best to offer our guests a memorable stay in our unique home and leave them with something to remember and talk about.”

The house has many of its original period features, including cornicing, high ceilings and the original fireplaces. The Georgian features of the building are enhanced by the stylish décor of the rooms with antiques, trinkets and period furniture. But it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice modernity, the house also has free WiFi along with a warm welcome and top quality service to make guests feel at home.
Staying at Percy Place puts you in a great location for exploring some of the most beautiful parts of Bath. The house is only a twenty-minute walk from the city centre and is close to the village of Larkhall, a friendly community with independent shops and eateries to explore. It really is the perfect location for anyone who loves to shop independently, Percy Place is on the edge of Walcot Street, where you’ll find lots of independent shops, especially art and design stores where you can be sure to find plenty of unique items. They are also right next to Kensington meadows by the river and the Kennet and Avon Canal, a fantastic spot for anyone who likes a leisurely stroll, or a spot of running or cycling. In fact, a run along the canal is exactly how Simona would spend her perfect day in the city.

“I would start with an early morning run along the Kennet and Avon canal to Bathampton and beyond.” She said. “After a shower, I’d take a stroll into town for coffee on Walcot Street at the Fine Cheese Company, then head to the Holburne Museum to see the current exhibition and to have lunch in the museum’s café in Sydney Gardens. Following a wander around the shops, I’d go to the Pump Room for high tea accompanied by live music and finish the day at the theatre, there is always a good choice of shows to see in Bath!”

Bath is indeed a great place to go to see a show, whether in the theatre or at one of the other venues in and around the city.

“Bath is a vibrant city, which we fell in love with when we first came here about fifteen years ago. We are still in awe of its beautiful architecture, the excellent art exhibitions, the variety of independent shops, bars and restaurants, the picturesque surrounding countryside, the theatre and Bath Rugby!” Simone said.

When asked about how staying at Percy Place differs from choosing one of the city’s big hotels, she said: “Being small, we can focus on offering high-quality service with a personal touch. We always welcome our guests with a cup of tea and a homemade cake and do our best to make them feel welcome, while also respecting their privacy. We are satisfied when at the end of their stay, they say they felt at home with us. As one of our clients put it recently, it’s a home from home!”
