About The Fox and Hounds Hotel, North Devon
The Fox and Hounds Hotel in Eggesford, North Devon, has been run by the Culverhouse family since 2007. This former coaching inn is perfect for a relaxing break in the Devon countryside or a special celebration and enjoys easy access from Exeter, Barnstaple and the M5.
The hotel is furnished with some beautiful antiques and has undergone a gradual refurbishment over the last 6 years. There are 6 acres of gardens stretching down to the banks of the beautiful River Taw. If you are lucky one of the locals might divulge where the otters are to be seen or if the salmon are leaping up Eggesford Bridge. There is wildlife all around including pheasants, owls, woodpeckers and siskins. Even the roe deer might take a peek across from the forest, before trotting away. The lichen on the trees is a good sign as they say that only grows where the air is purest.
