Saunton Sands Hotel
About the Hotel
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 Hotel Guide 2018
- 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 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-lon 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 (including Oblix at The Shard in London), is head chef at the 2-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.
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 Beach View Marine Vitality Pool, a gift shop and a supervised playroom. Spa treatments are available at a supplement.
The gym was renovated in August, 2018. The outdoor pool is open May-September. Stay in a Sea View Room for views of Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows.
