More Room Types

The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel is set in the North Devon countryside. The renovated coaching inn is surrounded by six acres of picturesque grounds, close to the Tarka Trail. The hotel's gardens extend down to the River Taw, and the property offers a 5-mile stretch of salmon and trout fishing. There's also an on-site fishing school.

Exeter, and Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks are all within easy reach by car, and it's a 25-minute drive to RHS Garden Rosemoor (open year round). Guests can try falconry, horse riding and shooting on site (charges apply), while DVD players and fishing equipment are available to hire (pre-booking advised), and bicycles can be rented at Barnstaple station.

The restaurant specialises in classic British cuisine using local Devonshire ingredients, and offers three local ciders and a number of real ales.

Rooms are spacious and furnished with antique French furniture. The rooms at the back overlook the garden with views of Heywood Forest and Eggesford Church. Pets and children are welcome (charges apply).
