Let us inspire you!

Whether you're looking for an adventurous escape, romantic break, or traditional family holiday, Saunton Sands Hotel can provide some holiday inspiration whatever the season.

Keep on reading to see which type of break takes your fancy...


Come and stroll on the beach and have it all to yourselves, watch the sunset from the Thermal Suite, or stargaze from the rooftop. Arrive to flowers, Prosecco and luxury chocolates in your room. You could even book the ocean-view double treatment room and enjoy a massage together. And why not order room service and have breakfast in bed – and maybe even a late checkout?

Wellness Warriors

Find yourself and be present in nature. Practice gratitude as you absorb the breathtaking surroundings. Connect with the earth: sink your toes in the sand and take cold water dips in the Atlantic Ocean or our outdoor pool. Revive with a Source treatment using cruelty-free and vegan seasonal oils, scrubs and lotions. Greet the day with morning yoga flow and see in the evening with meditation. Indulge in a vegan afternoon tea and feast on local seasonal delights.

The Adventurous

Explore England’s adventure coast … admire the epic coastline from the ocean; paddleboard the headlands, surf the UK’s top spots, take a fishing trip, and leap from cliffs into the water on a coasteering adventure. Scuba dive around Lundy Island, take to the skies and hang glide over Woolacombe, canter across rugged moorland on horseback and cycle miles through the countryside on the traffic-free Tarka Trail. Do cold water laps in the outdoor pool and revive in our spa.

Heritage and Gardens

Catch RHS Rosemoor in its marvellous spring bloom (with discounted entry), uncover the fascinating heritage at Hartland Abbey and stroll through woodlands carpeted with bluebells. Take the clifftop railway through Lynton and Lynmouth perched on the edge of Exmoor and traverse the cobbled streets of historic Clovelly

Magical Memories

The summer holidays are for long days playing on the beach, building sand castles, rolling down sand dunes and jumping waves. Our packed-to-bursting entertainment programme offers surfing, go-kart parties, junior football coaching, crafting, baking, circus workshops and much more. We also offer two hours of free supervised childcare daily, family afternoon teas and tennis tournaments with the beach as a backdrop. Beyond Saunton, we offer discounted entry to heaps of family attractions, so join us for generations of family fun.

A boys trip

There’s nothing as good for the soul as time away with your friends and autumn is the perfect time to carve out time together. Ride the September swell, hit the golf course, challenge each other to a tennis tournament, charter a fishing boat and reel in bass or mackerel, or get in the countryside for a days’ shoot. Return to award-winning food, quality spirits, Sky Sports on the big screen and the warming embrace of Source Spa and Wellness for weary bodies and woozy heads.

Sun Seekers

Either side of the six-week summer holidays, book a grown-up getaway and bask in the warm seas, explore endless stretches of golden sandy beaches, beautiful bays and remote coves. Lounge around the large heated outdoor pool sipping cocktails before dining alfresco on the terrace overlooking the ocean or at Beachside Grill. You’ll also get to soothe sun-soaked skin at Source Spa thanks to our delicious range of nourishing treatments.
