We had a great 2 night stay at Percys. Finding somewhere really nice when you have a dog isn't easy. Luckily dogs are welcome in several rooms at Percys. This isn't a posh hotel this is a fabulous restaurant in the main house with some lovely accomodation in another block. Food and rooms are both of the highest standard. What was the icing on the cake for us was the fabulous walks around the estate with our labrador. We also went walking on the beach at Bude in Cornwall - just a 20 minute drive away. I hope to be back eating Tina's food very soon - excellent.

We live 16 miles away, so have only sampled the food. We went as a party of 8 plus two toddlers to celebrate a family 80th birthday. I have heard of 'food that melts in the mouth' before but never appreciated what it really meant until we ate at Percy's. Meat that is cooked so tender must be taste to be believed - Tina's cooking is fantastic. Don't expect to have really fussy food - it's wholesome and utterly delicious. Service is warm and welcoming by Tony. You will not be disappointed!

If you are looking for spas, games room, gym, or sauna Percy's is not for you!
If you are, however, looking for somewhere that you can go to for complete relaxation, to unwind in beautiful surroundings with superb food, then Percy's is the correct choice.
Dogs are welcome, and with acres of land to roam around your creature comforts are also catered for.
Tina and Tony are always the perfect hosts, willing to share their time to ensure your stay is memorable.
This was our 5th visit, and is certainly not going to be our last!

This was our first visit to percy's hotel and we were not disappointed . Extremely comfortable accommodation , a warm welcome including chocolate cake on arrival . The restaurant was in the main old house which had been extended and decorated in a bright , crisp and clean decor . The food which was cooked by Tina was wonderful and served by her husband Tony . Before we sat down to eat we had a drink in the bar / lounge area , enjoying the sunset and watching four horses frolick around their paddock . After a delicious breakfast we enjoyed a lovely walk around the estate .

This is our second stay here and we cannot fault the rooms or meals. The room was very warm and spacious, with armchair and sofa. The log fires in reception and the dining room coped well with the cold weather this Spring. The surrounding countryside is well away from any hustle and bustle and the farm/woods are good for a stroll (but wear the wellies provided because it can be muddy). Very relaxing. The food was fresh, healthy and beautifully presented - the best we have ever tasted.
