About this property

A former coaching inn, The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel is a breath of fresh air if you're looking to escape on a dog-friendly holiday. Situated on six acres of grounds in the heart of Devon's serene countryside on the banks of the River Taw, you have everything you need to enjoy quality time with your four-legged friend. With its history rooted in the 1800s, the building functioned as a coaching inn for the Earl of Portsmouth, then later became a fishing lodge for salmon fishermen due to its close proximity to the river.

The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel was awarded a Traveller's Choice Award in 2023 due to its consistently fabulous reviews from guests, making it one of the best dog-friendly hotels in the area.  Home to 22 fully-equipped rooms and a handful of exquisite luxury suites, there are plenty of options for you to choose from, and all double rooms are pet-friendly. Whether you're relaxing in the pub with a drink by the fire, unwinding in your room, or out and about exploring the rural countryside, dog owners will truly relax in this gorgeous venue.

What your dog can expect at this dog-friendly hotel

The hotel has a reputation for being one of the most pet-friendly hotels in Devon. Renowned for its dog-friendly service and attentive staff, you'll be sure to have every need catered for you and your canine companion. All furry guests will be provided with bowls and treats and there's a wash station available  for muddy paws after long country walks. Plus four-legged friends can join their owners for meals, so they can feel like the most pampered canine guests.

The River Taw is a beautiful backdrop to the hotel and is a perfect spot to go for a dog walk and do some wildlife watching. You can look out for wild brown trout and salmon in the water, and even let your pup go for a dip! Or you can let them run loose in the designated field at the dog-friendly hotel for some off-lead playtime.

The local area

If you're eager to explore more of Devon's lush countryside, just a short drive away are numerous forest walks where you and your canine companion can amble footpaths, bridleways and fields. The nearby Eggesford forest is just a 3-minute drive or a 1.5 mile walk away, promising an opportunity for your dog to get some healthy exercise. The North Devon coast has dog-friendly beaches right at your fingertips, making it ideal for a coastal retreat. Plus, this dog-friendly hotel is  conveniently situated close to the Saxon hilltop market town of Chulmleigh for any extra amenities you might need.

Dine with Your Dog

The Heywood Restaurant at the Fox and Hounds serves up a menu of globally inspired dishes in a relaxed, pet-friendly dining environment, whether it's for dinner, lunch, or a traditional Sunday roast. All areas of the restaurant welcome furry friends, so take your pick between the dining room, the patio or the gardens to enjoy your meal. You can't holiday in Devon without a cream tea, and the restaurant offers just that! Savour a classic afternoon tea in the restaurant's stylish dining room or out on the terrace in the warmer months with your loyal hound at your side.

Bow wow factor

It is one of the best dog-friendly hotels in Devon and it is clear why! We love the hotel's location between the North Devon coast as well as Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. The best of both worlds!
