Rooms & Rates
Saunton Sands Hotel is a Condé Nast Johansens-recommended property with direct beach access on the North Devon coast. It's part of the Brend Hotels group, which won AA Hotel Group of the Year 2015. It has an AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant and is praised by The Daily Telegraph for being extremely child friendly.
The hotel overlooks 3.5-mile-long Saunton Sands and the adjacent Braunton Burrows, part of a UNESCO-designated biosphere reserve in the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Braunton Burrows, the second-largest sand-dune system in England, is home to a large number of rare plants and animals.
Jamie Coleman, who made the quarter-finals on BBC One's "MasterChef" in 2015, is head chef at the AA-Rosette-awarded main restaurant, which has sea views and Art Deco-inspired designs. "The kitchen is impassioned about using only West Country produce and turns out some stimulating dishes in the contemporary mould", says The AA.
The Terrace Lounge serves a more informal dinner menu, as wells as light lunches and cream teas. The Beachside Grill (closed until March) is a contemporary restaurant on the beach and has a terrace. Susy Atkins, a familiar face on BBC One's "Saturday Kitchen", has worked closely with the hotel to develop its wine list.
Facilities include an indoor and outdoor pool, a health club, squash courts, a shop and a supervised nursery. Upgrade to a Seaview Room for views of Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows.
