If you’re looking for a day out in the countryside Eggesford has plenty to offer:

The Fox and Hounds Hotel
Located a short walk from the station, The Fox and Hounds is a country gem offering everything from cream teas to country pursuits.

You can even stay in their new Treehouse! The short walk to the hotel from the station is along a busy road so please do take care.

Eggesford Garden & Country Centre
You don’t have to be a gardener to enjoy it here! Clothes, gifts, regular events, including antique fairs, all mingle with the more traditional plants and compost at Eggesford Gardens.

The restaurant serves food all day as well.

Eggesford Forest
A network of trails and paths link Eggesford Forest with the station, the Church and the Garden Centre.
Great if you fancy a walk and then a treat afterwards.
