Wedding testimonials for The Fox and Hounds Hotel in Devon

The Fox and Hounds hotel was the perfect venue for our special day, where the day was just perfect, wonderful friendly professional staff from start to finish! Will certainly be recommending !

We could not have asked for a better wedding day. Everything we asked for and all the guests commented on the brilliant staff and setting. Simply brilliant! Most amazing day ever; we couldn't have asked for it to go any smoother - every guest commented how it was the best wedding they have been to and how relaxed the atmosphere was - big 10 out of 10 and I have recommended the Fox and hounds to my friends getting married locally also!

As soon as we first stepped into the Fox and Hounds, we knew it was the place we wanted to get married, it had that special feeling. What we loved the most was the exclusivity of the venue as we were the only ones there, it gave it a luxury feel. The bridal suite is to die for too! Tara and her whole team looked after us perfectly and made us feel amazing. Everything about our big day was perfect,the food was absolutely amazing, everyone loved it especially the beef, it melted in your mouth! The setting is so stunning,helped on the day by the gorgeous weather.The whole day went by so smoothly. I would recommend,in a heartbeat,the Fox and Hounds as the most amazing, fantastic, gorgeous and special venue to get married.

We had a very small wedding but attention to detail and especially the food was 1st class.

All the Staff and especially Tara were amazing from start to finish. We were on quite a small budget but after the big day all our friends kept on asking us how we managed to afford everything. We had a lot of extra bits that were added on and not charged for which was really nice.

I thought I was really picky and I kept on calling Tara to check things but she was always happy to take my calls and was always very happy to make changes, even on the day itself. Throughout, she made us feel really special and it was very reassuring having someone so professional running the day.

All the staff were incredibly friendly and the food was amazing!!!! We can't praise the venue enough and Tara is the best (and Katie)!!! We were a long distance wedding and had never actually been to the venue before our wedding day! (we had seen it when we had holidayed locally last year - when my partner proposed) we really appreciated the excellent comprehensive website firstly, then the friendliness when we made contact. The most helpful thing was when discussing the music to be played Laura actually timed the "walk down the aisle" so I could plan my music... The venue was absolutely PERFECT for our intimate wedding of just 16 people. Everyone told us how clever we were finding such a wonderful venue and complemented us on the garden setting, our table and the superb menu! We booked the bridal suite for the whole day and night, and what a room! I would definately reccommend the Fox and Hounds Hotel for a traditional country wedding.

I wanted a very different wedding and found the Fox and Hounds most willing to be adaptable and willing to change from the 'norm'. The staff were courteous and professional throughout - even when I asked if they would remove the Christmas decorations throughout the hotel as they did not fit with my chosen theme! Their chef is amazing and for 70 guests the food was restaurant quality. What we and our families all commented on repeatedly was the attention to detail and the cheerful disposition all the tasks were dealt with. we have some difficult family members, particularly with unusual dietary needs and they were all made to feel special. I did not think the venue choice mattered that much apart from the location but have to say the staff and Tara actually made it the best weekend imaginable.

We were very glad we chose the Fox and Hounds for our wedding breakfast and a two night stay for our guests. From the first visit to discuss our requirements Gill and Tara were helpful and professional. They understood the special requirements for the elderly guests and our wish that the three vegetarians would get the same high standard of food as the others. They kept in contact throughout to make sure we had everything to make the day special. The care and attention to detail for the table decorations and the attentive service were perfect. All of the guests commented on the wonderful time they had and would recommend the hotel. Our dog was made very welcome too.

The Fox and Hounds were absolutely brilliant from start to finish.Before our wedding any query great or small was sorted out that day and very efficiently. Jill and Dana our wedding organisers were first class .They were very enthusiastic and very keen to make our big day special. The wedding day itself was brilliantly organised and the garden setting for the ceremony was beautiful. Overall I can highly recommend the Fox and Hounds. A great venue to celebrate with your friends and family.

The Fox and Hounds have been brilliant in helping us organise our wedding, the venue was beautiful for our country theme wedding. The staff were all very helpful and knew us very well by the big day and what we wanted. Which made us feel very special. The value for money is excellent and the standards are very high. I would highly recommend them to others. Very nice team of people. We had the perfect day.

Everyone in The Fox and Hounds hotel went an extra mile to make our special day even more special. From the first meeting with our wedding coordinator Gill to the last minute of our wedding day, everyone was very helpful. It took us a while to choose our wedding venue, but we definitely chose well.

We absolutely fell in love with The Fox and Hounds the first time we visited it whilst looking at potential wedding venues. We tried to be subjective and sensible and look at the other venues we had arranged to visit, but we knew straight away that this was the place we wanted to get married at. The grounds are beautiful, both yourself and your guests can stay there and the staff make you feel so at ease from the get go, that you know all will go smoothly with them at hand. Furthermore, their prices are so reasonable that you don't feel like you're spending your life savings on one day. I would definitely recommend The Fox and Hounds to anyone, both as a hotel and as a wedding venue.

Everything at the Fox and Hounds was perfect for our wedding day and all the staff went way beyond the call of duty to make it a perfect day. All the planning stages very thorough and efficient and very friendly and approachable staff. Food absolutely amazing - our wedding breakfast was out of this world and superb, friendly and efficient staff. - A top hotel that definitely deserves recognition - they do provide the perfect wedding venue and service - the whole package.
