Why Saunton?

There's so many reasons to love our hotel and spa.  We are situated within the most breathtaking environment  on the North Devon coast.  There's our new luxury spa with vitality pool and thermal suite.  There's childcare that's second to none.

 We guarantee you will enjoy your stay with us and won't want to leave.

Unrivalled location

Positioned just a stone’s throw from the three-mile stretch of golden sands and glistening waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Saunton Sands Hotel has become iconic for its prime location.

The breathtaking view follows you whatever you do: whether you’re enjoying a crisp glass of wine on your terrace as the sun slips behind the horizon, tucking into sumptuous eats in The Dining Room or bathing in the heated marine vitality pool in Source Spa and Wellness, the panoramic view won’t escape you.

Source Spa & Wellness

In 2018 we launched Source Spa and Wellness, inspired by the stunning Devon coastline and our natural surroundings, it has become a benchmark in soulful and physical wellbeing in the West Country. Since opening, we have won the 2020 Conde Nast Johansens Best Hotel with Spa award and received a 5 Bubble Spa rating from the Good Spa Guide as well as several glowing reviews.

Haven’t managed to experience it for yourself? Source Spa facilities include a marine-inspired thermal suite complete with a salt inhalation steam room, Finnish aroma sauna, ice fountain, contrast shower and marine vitality pool. The marine vitality pool features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the deep blue waters, a truly mesmerising and relaxing space. There is also a heated pool, six fabulous treatment rooms, a relaxation room and a state-of-the-art gym.

The Service

 We’re a key part of the Brend Hotels group, a family-run company that has been a leader in the West Country hospitality industry for over 50 years. With a collection of 11 hotels and 18 restaurants in Devon and Cornwall, each establishment is individual but offers the same exceptional service and care we have become known for.

Our passion for excellence means we go above and beyond to make sure you have a magical experience and this is reflected in our customer reviews, whether on social media, TripAdvisor or directly to our staff. 

Another amazing break at Saunton Sands for New Year’s Eve. As always the staff are excellent in ensuring you have a great time with good memories to take away. We stayed in the apartments which offered great flexibility and they are of excellent quality.’

Award winning Dining by the sea

We offer a smörgåsbord of dining styles to suit any occasion. The Dining Room, with its period chandeliers and awe-inspiring views, is where you can leisurely feast on juicy Exmoor steaks, the daily catch landed by South West fishing crews, gorgeously succulent game and veggies plucked from the area’s fertile fields.

The Terrace Lounge is a more casual spot where you can feast your eyes on glistening sands and glassy waves, under a canopy of endless sky, backed by the undulating beauty of Braunton Burrows. Against this fabulous backdrop, enjoy small plates or sandwiches from the Light Bites menu, or plump for something a little more indulgent like our afternoon teas.

Excellent Facilities

Our excellent facilities make us stand out. From daily fitness classes and fabulous surfing lessons, to a tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and even a helipad. Not to mention our sumptuous luxury bedrooms and apartments – which can cater for the whole family.
