Whitsun School Holiday

26th May - 3rd June (limited availability, book soon!)

With May being one of our very sunniest and warmest months in North Devon during the past few years, a week at Saunton during Whitsun is truly world-class.

We’ve a jam-packed family entertainment programme to keep kids of all ages happy, as well as two hours of free childcare each day, and movie nights and PJ parties for older children, so that parents get a well-deserved break too.

And what will you do with those precious hours? Maybe enjoy a blissful massage, a stunning traditional afternoon tea on the terrace, a run on the beach or yoga in the sun – or simply a laze by the outdoor pool with a coffee and a novel?

Kids and grown-ups alike will love the surf at Saunton. Clean water and small longboarding waves are great for experienced surfers and beginners alike – or just come and play in the surf on a boogie board. You can bring your own gear or hire it at the surf shop on the beach. If you take advantage of our free lessons for over 10s, we’ll get you kitted out for nothing.
