Fox & Hounds Country Hotel
Meander down the Tarka Trail, along the banks of the River Taw, and you’ll stumble across the Fox & Hounds Country Hotel. With such amiable staff, there’s always a warm, welcoming ambience and the venue is bursting with traditional charm. Expect open fireplaces, cosy armchairs, exposed wooden beams and brass ale pumps. The hotel offers dog-friendly bedrooms and pooches are welcome in part of the restaurant, making this the ideal post-walk destination. The menu comprises delicious, hearty dishes – perfect after a day fly fishing in the river. Meat-lovers can enjoy tender venison Carpaccio, followed by succulent Chateaubriand to share. To finish, why not treat yourself to a decadent peanut butter fondant? This countryside hotel also serves an indulgent afternoon tea. Tuck into scones heaped with clotted cream and jam, freshly baked pastries and miniature sandwiches accompanied by a lovely pot of looseleaf tea.
