The Great British Staycation
Escape the everyday
While there were months that were sad and stressful for many, the Great Pause was also a chance to really slow down and practise being grateful. Lockdown took away our ability to make plans and forced us to live in the moment. The little things we’d barely have noticed before – an empty beach, the ferns unfolding in spring, a pub serving a pint – now seemed incredible. This appreciation has paved the way for an entirely fresh perspective on holidays in the UK, without it feeling like a compromise.
Perched atop the cliff tops of the stunning North Devon coast, Saunton Sands Hotel + Source Spa and Wellness is enveloped by the UNESCO World Heritage designated North Devon Biosphere which makes up part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And what do all these accreditations mean? Every which way you turn, you’ll be blown away by the beauty of this special slice of the world. Aptly named England’s Adventure Coast, our doorstep beckons to be adored and explored.
Epic ocean vistas are present wherever you are; dining in the award-winning Art Deco restaurant, saluting the day with yoga on the lawn, doing laps in the large outdoor pool, soaking tired toes in the spa’s vitality pool, playing tennis, and from your bed in the many sea facing rooms and luxury self catering apartments. You might question ever jumping on a plane to get your seaside fix again!
After months of being stuck inside and ongoing restrictions on our freedom, leaving many feeling tense and anxious to be outside; the luxury of fresh air, empty space in nature and seeing new sights feels revolutionary. Lean into holidaying in Devon and embrace the chill of the Atlantic Ocean, climb the rolling Devon hills and roll with the unpredictable weather; awaken your appreciation for our freedoms and surroundings… it feels like living!
Escape the everyday and join us for simple pleasures and making magical memories by the sea.
