The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel


Information For The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel

Award winning wedding venue on the River Taw, boasting the UK's largest luxury tree house!

We take pride in being experts at arranging your wedding. We have been the very proud winner of the award for the Best Wedding Venue in Devon 3 times and runner up twice in the last 8 years and we are finalists for 2019.
The votes are cast by previous brides and grooms to reflect service, value for money and overall excellence in event management.
We are licensed for civil weddings and boast one of the prettiest rooms in the South West to get married in. Our stunning summerhouse is licensed for outdoor weddings and our luxury garden canopies provide a bit of shelter if the weather is not co-operating or the sun is too hot.
We only ever have one wedding per day to ensure you have our fullest attention, and we can help with any of the arrangements you need. Your dedicated wedding planner will guide you through the planning stage and be present on the day to ensure your special day runs effortlessly. Brides consistently comment on how much more flexible and friendly our venue is compared to chain hotels and stuffy stately homes.
Our 6 acres of grounds are beautiful, with the gazebo blooming with roses and clematis offering a lovely centre piece for your photos, as well as the lakes and River Taw being perfect scene setters for amazing wedding pictures. Our Bridal Suite, with enormous, white, 7 foot four poster bed, is truly stunning and perfect for the occasion.
You can also get married in our beautiful Treehouse overlooking the forest and fishing lake which is licensed for civil ceremonies for small numbers up to 10 guests.
