The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel

A former coaching inn set on the River Taw, the Fox & Hounds Country hotel offers comfortable and generous accommodation with good old fashioned friendly service. Dogs are welcome and there are 6 acres of grounds to explore.

What makes a stay at The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel unique?

The number 1 thing most remarked upon is the friendliness of all the staff - from the housekeepers to gardener to the owners who are regularly on site. The walks and local area are lovely and unspoiled and relaxing even in high summer. The restaurant offers country cooking with professional execution using Devon's finest produce.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel?

All 8 standard double rooms offer king size beds, bath or shower rooms and are individually styled. There is also the gorgeous Eggesford suite for a special occasion offering a 7'6" four poster bed - a giant triumph! The superior doubles are incredibly spacious with luxury touches and still retaining a country charm. The cosy doubles offer generous single accommodation or budget-friendly double occupancy.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Chulmleigh area?

Eggesford and Haywood forest surround the hotel and with 5 miles of fly fishing and the Tarka Trail of walking routes, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. It is the perfect location for exploring North and Mid Devon with the coast, Exmoor, Dartmoor and Exeter all just 40 minutes away. RHS Rosemoor Gardens is a must see along with Barnstaple pannier market just a short train ride away.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

The large restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and offers fantastic country fare with a modern twist. Don't miss proper steak n kidney pudding, rack of lamb or one of the sumptuous Trencher boards featuring a generous meat platter to share. Full Devonshire breakfast is served each day freshly cooked and there is an area to dine with your pet if you prefer.
