All rooms are en suite, and individually decorated to the highest standard. There is also free parking. ​ Our 2 AA Rosette restaurant has recently been awarded a place in the Good Food Guide, (the Waitrose UK's Best Restaurants reference book). We offer some exceptional seasonal menus, a weekly Prix Fixe lunch menu, and

Exton is a truly gorgeous place; in a way I don't want to say this because if the whole world descended upon it, the locals wouldn't like it much and neither would I. Anyway, the Fox & Hounds is a brilliant place to billet and...More
