Decided to visit Percy`s, having read very complimentary reviews. The decision was correct. We stayed in a very large open plan suite with a spotlessly clean and well appointed bathroom. The sort of extras eg filter coffee, two types of tea, a fridge with water and fresh milk were all there, but what differentiates this hotel is its personality. We... More

A surprise birthday trip to Percy's for the night with dinner - we've been meaning to come here for a while. We should have come sooner - everything about the place oozes calm, understated luxury, comfort and peace. So many lovely little details in the room on arrival - a jug of fresh milk in the fridge, slices of fresh... More

Just stayed for the one night but it was great - location, service, food and facilities exactly what we were after and makes it a really special little place. Loved seeing the sheep on the farm and the friendly cats!

I wanted to get away for the weekend and decided to try out Percy's Hotel. From the moment I arrived until the time I drove away I was well looked after and found myself completely relaxed. Travelling alone can sometimes be difficult and daunting but not at Percy's; the friendly, intimate environment was suitable for everyone, and it made for... More

To find a gem like this in this part of England is not easy, but boy is is worth it! Being from the states, we found the countryside beautiful, even driving on the wrong side of the road!

Just returned from a 2 day stay over the bank holiday weekend. A very pleasant and relaxing break. As others have mentioned Percy's is a working farm and comes with the associated charms (you will be welcomed by a tail wagging Labrador and perhaps a goose!).

Hello ChrisseyBoy - thanks for the great review and reference to the wine prices as well.

We went to Percy's for 2 nights not entirely sure of what to expect, but willing to give it a try, and this is what you need to do if you want to get the best out of the place. Percy's is also a working farm with the restaurant being located in the farmhouse and the rooms in a restored... More

We stayed at Percy's last Saturday and had a great break. It is so peaceful and you are made to feel very welcome (the dog even took us for a walking tour of the estate!).
