A group of eight of us managed to find this gem in a fairly remote location for a weekend stay. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and spacious and with the train station just a couple of minutes amble down the road and mid-way between Exeter and Barnstable this hotel is ideally... More

we have stayed a couple of times in the last month or so whilst in the area on business, both times with our dog who has recently broken his leg. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful, the room was spacious and immaculate and the food was excellent...we will be back!

The first thing to say is that the Fox and Hounds' staff are very friendly and welcoming - it was no trouble to put our bikes under cover overnight or to let us stay in the guest lounge after we'd checked out. The rooms are also perfectly serviceable and the bar area makes for a lovely venue for evening meals,... More

When phoning to make my booking all the signs were good, with a very pleasant, efficient woman taking the call. Throughout our stay all the staff, while not always highly trained, were nevertheless very friendly, making the stay enjoyable. As someone else has said, there seems to be a problem with identity. Is it a pub with rooms or a... More

Very memorable Sunday lunch for a family occasion. The food was excellent and the service exceptional, the room layout was very good and the manager and staff should be very proud of the hotel and its atmosphere.

Stayed for two nights. Staff were brilliant. Food was delicious. We are vegetarians and usually hotel food is disappointing. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. I had flu during our stay and it didn't spoil it at all.

I booked the Treetops tree house as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and we were impressed from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The treehouse is just an amazing place if you want to get away from it all, unwind and relax. We are two people that are generally busy 7 days a week and this... More

Fantastic place to stay and bring the dogs. The staff were absolutely faultless at making us feel welcome and valued. The dogs were also spoilt rotten! Superb grounds surrounding the hotel and plenty of walks to be had in the close vicinity. The food in the restaurant was also faultless along with the local cider! And all round excellent experience... More
