Playroom and Activity Programme

Enjoy our fully inclusive playroom activities with up to two hours childcare per day.  

Our playroom will take children up to the age of 11 years and we can take babies from 6 weeks in our baby corner.

Our newly refurbished playroom boasts new furniture and lots of new toys, including ride-on tractors to tear around on. Plus we have a brand new kitchen, perfect for biscuit making time. This is as well as new air conditioning and heating throughout. Other fun little touches are the additions of magnetic walls all-round to display artwork and disco lights for party time in the playroom!

Our playroom and entertainment programmes have made Saunton Sands Hotel a firm favourite for family holidays. It allows parents the time to relax a little more, whether enjoying a peaceful lunch, taking a refreshing swim or soaking away in our luxury spa. All with the peace of mind that little ones are being kept amused and are having a fun-filled time in the care of child-care professionals, who just love what they do!

Our range of activities this year includes:

  • Nature walk and bug catching 
  • Design your own t-shirt
  • Wooden craft modelling
  • Create your own Popsicle with yummy toppings
  • Mandala rock art
  • Marble ink designs 


All of our playroom staff are certified level 3 in Childcare, routinely DBS checked and, for your piece of mind, one member of staff on duty will be Pediatric First Aid certified. Many of our staff have been with us for a long time and families return year after year to familiar friendly faces, making leaving your children in their care that much easier.


Our playroom has toys to delight every child; very popular is Construction Corner with Lego, Meccano, marble runs and more. Your little ladies (and lads!) will love Home Corner, with dressing up clothes, jewellery and kitchen. And Craft Corner houses heaps arts and crafts fun.


We offer a full range of fully inclusive weekend and school holiday activities catering for all ages, from messy play to surf lessons to mermaid experiences. There is bound to be something that will amuse your little ones. We love to make the best out of North Devon’s natural playground, making dens, surfing, looking for crabs in the rockpools, having picnics and playing games. However, there’s more than enough fun to be had for an indoor day too, such as; pirate mornings, clay modelling, jewellery making, tie-dye, baking and our pyjama parties and film nights.

During the main school holidays we step up the fun, running daily activities all week.  For low season months, please call for midweek playroom supervision timetables.
