Stayed here for a couple of days Salmon fishing. Great location not far from Exeter, in stunning surroundings. Grounds are very well kept. The room was lovely (number 1), Four Poster with great views. Food was lovely (I had the Pigeon to start, followed by an awesome Steak and Kidney Pudding - best I've had). Very reasonable prices too (2... More

The hotel is lovely. Some quaint furniture in the room. Staff are great. Food is excellent. Beautiful grounds. Dog friendly. Must see the amazing treehouse at the back. Fishing available. Down side is that we had the misfortune the to coincide with 2 wedding parties.......oh the noise of the screeching hen party.... and wedding guests. Not a nice relaxing getaway.... More

Thank you for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. We would love to have the space for separate bars and I do appreciate large groups can be noisy and disturb other people.

Spent two nights in August. Lovely place to stay, privately owned and run. It is set in the Taw valley close to the Taw river. It is in a lovely position, with some walks through the surrounding woodlands. Eggesford railway station (Tarka line) is just a few hundred yards along the road, and you can take the train along to... More

We stayed here recently in August for a friends wedding at a different hotel and booked for two nights, the hotel is very picturesque and the surrounding grounds were enjoyable to walk around very peaceful and relaxing. We were given the key to room 24 and walked up to where we were staying, I was a little concerned that it... More

Very expensive run down room in dyer need or an upgrade. £105 a night for hair in the bed, finger nails on the floor and other guests property left in the room. There is peeling paint and hand prints on the walls. Just not a nice place to stay for a weekend away with a partner. Could only compare it... More

We visited Fox and Hounds for our first wedding anniversary and loved it! We took our little puppy which we were a bit nervous about as she can be a bit of a handful, but the staff were lovely and very understanding. The food in the restaurant was delicious and our room was great. There was a wedding taking place... More

The tree-house itself is stupendous, magical. Just like something out of Winnie the Pooh, and the fun map of the site shows that someone else thought this too. You half expect a bear, piglet and bouncy tiger to amble into view at any moment hence our 5 and 7 year old boys loved it. A several hundred year old oak... More
