About

Situated along the River Taw on six acres of lush grounds, The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel is a multi award-winning wedding venue. Providing exceptional service, exquisite food, and stunning riverside views, this hotel is an idyllic destination for couples tying the knot in Devon. The friendly and professional staff will help you create the celebration of your dreams, and since they only host one wedding per day, you will have exclusive use of the estate.

Facilities and Capacity

The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel has a beautiful red brick façade and can accommodate up to 250 for evening receptions. Its restaurant can hold 130 for formal buffets and wedding breakfasts, while the serene Summer House is licensed for civil ceremonies outdoors. An indoor chapel is also available for exchanging your vows. It is the Treetops Treehouse, however, that is the piece de resistance of the venue. Nestled among the branches and leaves of the property's tallest trees, the Treehouse hosts intimate weddings and elopements. Just 10 people can gather here for this small affair, and afterwards the happy couple can use it as a honeymoon hideaway. Treetops Treehouse comes equipped with a full kitchen, a lounge with a log burner, and a master suite with a copper bath and shower. It sleeps four people.

Services Offered

Other guests will find numerous comfortable accommodations within The Fox and Hounds Country Hotel. The inn boasts a range of refurbished rooms, including the largest four-poster bed in Devon. This is in the Eggesford Suite, where your loved ones will find a seven-foot four-poster bed.

    Fantastic day!

    I just want to say a huge thank you for yesterday, the day went so smoothly and that is down to you all. The food was absolutely incredible (although I did almost have a dress disaster with the raspberries on the lemon tart!) Thank you again for a fantastic day.

    Perfect from start to finish.

    It was perfect from start to finish. The staff looked after myself and family so well and everyone commented on how beautiful the hotel was - just a perfect setting for our wedding. We are both so glad that we chose to get married here and can't wait to return again - maybe for our first anniversary!
