We always stay on a friend's farm when we visit devon but wouldn't want to impose and eat at theirs every night so we eat out. Over the last few years the only place we have found that provides fantastic food reliably is the fox and hounds. We went for a week at easter and booked for every night. 2... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in March with our 2 dogs and really loved it. It was peaceful, the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was lovely and the bedroom and bathroom were really spacious and clean. It's in a good location for getting to nearby towns and walks and there is plenty of parking. Could not fault it... More

We had our wedding reception here in 2007 and regularly return whenever we visit Devon, the service is excellent and the food never disappoints, we love the way that the hotel combine a relaxed country atmosphere with an excellent dining experience.

Sadly on business for the duration of my two night stay in this wonderful hotel. I will return soon hopefully in non work mode. The hotel was located in a quiet and perfect location immediately fell into a near coma. The Sam's cider at 7.9% ABV was helpful in calming the mind! Staff were so helpful and able to deal... More

This hotel was wonderful. It is straight off the road but oh so peaceful and quiet, it's hidden away in a forest. As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. We then came back to the bar where we were met by the most delightful cream tea ever. In the evening we tried some... More

From our arrival until the moment we reluctantly departed, the hospitality we received from every member of staff at the Fox and Hounds was second to none. Everyone was very helpful and friendly, which made our stay a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. This was enhanced by the very comfortable accommodation, lovely grounds and seriously good food (great breakfast and... More

Value for money unbelievable as we... More

My partner and I first visited Fox and Hounds in December 2013 and have visited a few times since as we love it. We have also booked to have our wedding here in May. We've had lunch and dinner here and I have to say the food is absolutely phenomenal! We had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch and we... More
