We stayed in the treehouse for a couple of nights and it surpassed our expectations. We didn't realise that it came with our own little garden area and BBQ. It was like having our own private campsite. Amazing. The treehouse balcony also had an outside heater. We didn't want to leave and I would recommend the treehouse to anyone. If... More

We stayed as a family of 4 in the newly created Treehouse in the grounds of the Fox and Hounds Hotel. Having seen the pictures on the hotel website we were ready to be impressed but reality was even better. This is extremely well designed and built with a fully fitted kitchen (Cooker, Dish Washer Fridge etc) a great bathroom... More

Everything was great about the hotel - from the super food, reasonably priced wines and helpful staff, to the lovely room with large patio. Walkers - beware though of using the hotel-provided walks without seriously checking an OS map! We attempted Walk 7, which was meant to be 2'5 miles and due to now non existent footpaths (the maps are... More

An incredible experience in a really luxurious treehouse, where else would you find a krupps coffee maker and a dishwasher up in the trees....?? Attention to detail throughout was superb including the installation of a free standing copper bath in the bathroom. Absolutely loved how the light moved around throughout the day lighting up the rooms inside. Didn't want to... More

Our first impressions were very good. Entering the hotel we were met by a gentleman (sorry should of got his name) who was more than helpful and very... More

Thank you for your kind words. The bed in room 5 has been re built (it's a 19th century French antique frame so we did not wish to change it) so hopefully next time you come your stay will be even better. More
