Great News! We were awarded Silver for Hotel of the Year in the Devon Tourism Awards by Visit Devon on November 13th 2013. Here is some of the judges feedback:MENU/MEALS 10/10
- Wonderful food, well presented and amazing taste - passion for excellence in all things culinary comes through - home reared pork, lamb and vegetables from garden all served.
- High expectations from food after reading reviews and seeing awards were exceeded.
- In suite on arrival there was fresh milk, choice of teas and coffee, fruit bowl and home-made ginger cake.
CUSTOMER SERVICE 9/10
- Tina and Tony are passionate about what they do and Percy’s offers a very personal and high level of service. Their service and attention to detail was excellent.
VALUE FOR MONEY 9/10
- At £310 for DB&B this is a premium product offering - £230 for the room and £80 for the meals but this is a special place and the value - particularly for the food - was excellent. Offers were available on website - four nights for the price of three with champagne and cookbook included.
Percys offers a unique experience - it is a hidden gem offering complete relaxation in a tranquil setting giving a real tast of Devon life. Tina and Tony have created a very special place with high levels of friendly, personal service and amazing food.
This is the very attractive trophy made by Dartington Glass in Devon and designed by Sarah Peterson.
Sophie has some very demanding puppies that are keeping her extremely busy!
Following the usual 8 week pregnancy Sophie duly delivered 7 live and thriving pups. We named them Tommy, Cinderella, Samantha, Blue (she has a wall eye), Rosie, Catherine and Simon. Four have now found new homes and the three we have remaining are Simon, Cinderella and Catherine. They keep us very busy attending to their needs and walking them several times a day.
The garden is looking particularly beautiful at the moment
This spring, Tony had the bright idea of buying some flower seed from nearby Homeleigh Garden Centre which he duly broadcast in the front garden and the planters flanking the entrance to the rooms.
Not only did they grow quickly and bloom to add amazing colour, they attracted all sorts of insects looking for nectar. We had great fun with a mobile camera trying to capture the bees close up feeding without them noticing!
