Nestled on the River Taw, halfway between Exeter and Barnstaple the hotel enjoys an exquisite setting amongst the rolling hills of the Tarka Trail. Furnished with a mixture of beautiful antiques and contemporary comfort the Fox & Hounds Hotel offers an idyllic setting for a relaxing or action-packed break - whichever suits your needs. With a whole host of activities on offer or a chance to simply marvel at the glorious mid-Devon scenery this family run Country Hotel has become a firm favourite with many of our guests and we hope to welcome you too to enjoy our hospitality.

Built in the 1800s as a Coaching Inn the Fox and Hounds Hotel was once owned by the Earl of Portsmouth and is surrounded by stunning forest and river walks.
