Welcome to Saunton Sands Hotel in Devon

Perched atop the cliff tops on the North Devon coast, our iconic four-star art deco hotel and sea-view spa overlooks Saunton Sands; one of the UKs best beaches. We invite you to escape the everyday and take a seat by the sea in one of the most beautiful pockets of the country.

Saunton Sands is the perfect tonic for you and your family. Loved by surfers and longboarders for the clean consistent waves, families for beachy fun, golfers for the championship course next to us, and walkers for the vast expanse of wild but wonderful dunes and its position right on the South West Coast Path, this is a very special place.

Large indoor and outdoor pools, abundant space, school-holiday entertainment and playroom supervision are the perfect ingredients for a family holiday. For romantic retreats and getaways with your gang; remarkable facilities including a marine-inspired Thermal Suite, nourishing spa treatments and two AA Rosette dining are the elixirs you have been searching for. Guests can also choose to join in our fitness and wellbeing classes, including yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, full-body workouts and meditation sessions.

However you choose to spend your time, we are here to take care of you. Nothing is too much trouble for our exceptional staff, we are here to ensure a truly memorable experience. 

'The hotel offers the ultimate breath of salt-tinged fresh air and escape from the hustle and bustle of the urban haze. On these immaculate golden sandy shores, Saunton Sands Hotel stands against the dramatic backdrop of the famous South West Coast Path. This is postcard perfection.’ - Condé Nast Johansens
