Set on the banks of the River Taw amongst the scenic landscape of the Tarka Trail, the dog friendly Fox and Hounds Hotel in North Devon is truly tucked away in the heart of the glorious Devon countryside.
The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel is a special place for families and for couples bringing their family pet. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere ensures everyone feels instantly at ease.
Out of the 20 rooms at The Fox & Hounds, 13 are dog friendly and you can book both Standard and Superior rooms.
There is a charge of £10 per dog per night but you only pay for up to 3 nights. Furthermore, there is no restriction on size of dog or number of dogs you can have stay with you.
The Fox & Hounds will welcome your four-legged friend by providing the Doggie Essentials Kit (spare waste bags, spare bowl, spoon & mat plus a little Fairy liquid for washing up). Your pooch will also find treats at reception and towels are provided to wipe those muddy paws after a lovely walk.
There are a number of great walks within easy reach of the hotel and offer a great opportunity to see some of the best, unspoilt countryside that Devon has to offer.
At the hotel there is a file with maps and trails, ranging from gentle forest walks to a more adventurous day trip like the Tarka Trail, The Two Moors Way or the South West Coast Path.
Following your walk you and your canine companion can relax in the bar area and enjoy some refreshment. The Bar and the bar dining area at the Fox & Hounds are dog friendly. They ask that dogs are not taken into the main function room, where they serve breakfast during the week but they are more than happy to set you up a breakfast table in the bar dining area.
All in all The Fox & Hounds is perfect for a relaxing break in the Devon countryside with your beloved four-legged friend and enjoys easy access from Exeter, Barnstaple and the M5.
