A country hotel stay in the wilds of North Devon, packed with charm and character, and an AA Rosette-awarded restaurant – includes breakfast and three-course dinner


Tucked away amidst Heywood Forest in Chulmleigh, North Devon, The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel boasts elegant decor and antique furniture, making it a charming and unique place to stay. All of the en-suite rooms enjoy views over the gardens, the forest or the village church – perfect vistas for the ultimate country escape. What's more, this hotel is pet-friendly, so you can bring your dog for a break to boot.

All the en-suite rooms have their own individual character and antique French furniture. Some overlook the gardens, some look onto Heywood Forest, and others have a view of the village church. Standard rooms come with a double bed and Superior rooms have a four-poster or king-size bed to spread out in. The hotel holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and has many other accolades under its belt.

The restaurant uses locally sourced produce as much as possible in a la carte menu. Offering traditional home-cooked classics with flair, the menu changes with the seasons, and includes options such as slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with chorizo cassoulet, and the home-made pot-pie of the week. Lunch nibbles and afternoon tea are also available.


Nestled in the heart of North Devon’s countryside, The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel has something for everyone. Exeter is 30 miles away, with its extensive shopping area and stunning cathedral. Barnstaple is 20 minutes away by car and home to the Monday-Saturday Pannier Market.

Devon’s coastline is great for walking and surfing, particularly Croyde or Woolacombe beaches. If you’re an outdoors type, put a day aside to explore both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. Scour the moorlands for Tors, enjoy a pint in a country pub and check out the white lady in the Valley of the Rocks.
