Why We Love This Hotel

  • "Stunning sea views and direct access to five miles of sandy beach are just two of the highlights at this popular hotel," says The AA 
  • The hotel is recommended by Condé Nast Johansens for its "amazing location" overlooking Saunton Sands -- you can walk right on to the beach from the property
  • You can dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, which serves locally caught seafood and West Country produce

Saunton Sands Hotel Source Spa and Wellness is a Condé Nast Johansens-recommended property with direct beach access on the North Devon coast. It has a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant and is praised by The Daily Telegraph for being extremely child friendly.

The hotel overlooks the 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.

Mathias Oberg, who has worked in many Michelin-starred restaurants, is head chef at the 2-AA-Rosette main restaurant, which has sea views and Art Deco-inspired designs. "Watch the sun set from the terrace or soak up the maritime views from the stylish restaurant with original 1930s chandeliers," says The AA.

Susy Atkins, a familiar face on BBC One's "Saturday Kitchen" and wine columnist for The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, has worked closely with the hotel to develop its wine list.

The new Source Spa and Wellness centre opened in September, 2018. Facilities include a salt-inhalation steam room, a Finnish aroma sauna, a thalassotherapy pool with beach views, a gift shop and a supervised playroom. Spa treatments are available for a supplement.

The gym was renovated in August, 2018, and guests get complimentary access to daily fitness classes including yoga, pilates, tai chi and meditation. The outdoor pool is open May-September. Stay in a Sea View Room for views of Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows.

our room was overly warm (no aircon) despite turning the radiator off and opening the windows. view from the room was poor which was made worse by scafolding immediately outside of the window.
