Escape to the Country
Hotels in Devon
Welcome to the Fox and Hounds Hotel, tucked away in the glorious North Devon Countryside - right on the River Taw amongst the scenic landscape of the Tarka Trail. Retreat to nature where you can enjoy the outdoor life with a walk in the surrounding forest or join in with some of the best country sports in the UK right on our doorstep, with shooting and fishing breaks for you to enjoy.
Kick off your wellies, relax and enjoy our excellent food featuring Devon's finest ingredients from our award winning Chefs. Then let the sound of the owls lull you into a deep sleep in our comfortable bedrooms under a sky where you can actually see the stars!
Children and well behaved dogs are welcome.
Our cosy lounge offers a comfortable, unpretentious dining experience and the freshly prepared Country classics will tempt you time and time again. We source all our ingredients from the West Country, most of them coming from just up the road.
Great News we have been voted The Best Wedding Venue in Devon AGAIN for the third year running at the South West Wedding Awards 2012.
We are licensed for civil weddings and boast one of the prettiest rooms to get married in in the South West. Brides consistently comment on how much more flexible and friendly our venue is compared to chain hotels and stuffy stately homes.
There is an amazing array of activities on offer at the hotel or in the nearby countryside. The hotel is famous for its fishing with a rich history associated with trout and salmon fishing. The hotel currently has over five miles of fishing available on the River Taw with concessions at a number of other local rivers.
We are an award winning family hotel and pride ourselves on our friendly service and showing you "proper" Devonshire hospitality. Our location is perfect for exploring this lovely part of the West Country and our rooms are all comfortable and individual.
