“Percy's Country Hotel and Restaurant began life as the rural outpost of the owners' successful restaurant and wine bar in North Harrow. Having sold the wine bar, Tina and Tony Bricknell-Webb channelled their energies into creating an eco friendly country retreat, where the emphasis is on total relaxation, getting back to nature and enjoying organic local food - much of it produced on their own estate. The rooms are spacious and restful with muted hues and all offer the trappings you would expect from this type of operation: fluffy bathrobes, king sized beds kitted out with Egyptian linen, plush toiletries. However the real star here is the wonderful location between Dartmoor and the North Devon coast and the peace and tranquility that abounds and is positively endorsed by Tony and Tina. Come here stressed and leave with the feeling that all is well with the world.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Percy's is pretty unique in every way. We grow our own produce, farm our own meat and offer fantastic grounds with stunning views, beautiful woodland and wildlife ponds. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the food is second to none and what is more, we are situated in the middle of Devon and Cornwall, so we are well positioned for exploring the fantastic countryside around us.
What is there to do in the area?
We are situated next door to Britain's best Wildlife Photography Centre, near Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre in Devon, Rosemoor RHS Garden, The Garden House, we have Homeleigh Garden Centre just up the road and much much more - some of which is under attractions on our web site.
What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Just about anything, most of it is either made here on the farm or is very locally sourced and nearly all organic.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
People rarely venture elsewhere to eat as we are so well known for our food but there is the Dartmoor Inn nearby and also the Harris Arms pub.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
Sage gives flexibility with a large fridge, dining area and kitchenette. Lavender is great for couples wanting to share the double whirlpool bath and Dill is good for those who enjoy a separate lounge and bedroom.
What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
Come here to relax, eat food fresher than you have probably encountered elsewhere and breathe the purest air which will ensure a very sound night's sleep. Take in the breathtaking views, make friends with the dogs and chat to the chef about the food and the kitchen garden - she is very happy to talk to you! Percy's is great for exclusive hire - it is home from home and caters for every need.”
