Swimming Pools

Source Spa and Wellness at Saunton Sands boasts two fantastic large heated pools, indoors and out. And, of course, we have the world’s greatest pool just a few steps away, you can always head down to the beach for a refreshing swim in the Atlantic Ocean!

Indoor heated pool:

The large indoor heated swimming pool with a smaller pool, which is perfect for children, resides on the ground floor of the hotel. Heated to a balmy 28°C, our indoor pool is perfect for some refreshing leisurely laps to chill out or sooth away the night before yet big enough to get your heart rate going with some more intensive swimming drills, should fitness be your goal. Open from 6.30am - 9.30pm all year round, there’s plenty of time to take a dip during the day. Alternatively, settle into a pool-side lounger with a magazine or good book and leave the others to it!
