Art deco elegance provides the backdrop for a classic British seaside setting
Luxurious art deco Saunton Sands Hotel in Devon is a four star hotel offering AA Rosette award winning menus, unrivalled views over miles of golden sands and a beautiful, comfortable interior.
While its position on the beach provides all guests need for safe paddling and bathing, as well as exhilarating surfing, there’s lots to do inside too: a warm large indoor pool, a leisure suite including sauna and therapy treatments, and entertainments and games for all the family. It’s also located next to Saunton Golf Club and right on the South West Coast path, so it’s popular with walkers and golfers.
Couples looking for a peaceful romantic Devon break and families with energetic children keen on fun indoor and outdoor activities (there is a great entertainment programme in school hols), will enjoy the setting, which is further enhanced by very good quality evening and lunchtime dining, large traditional English breakfasts and the classic afternoon tea with mini macarons and finger sandwhiches in the newly refurbished art deco-style dining room.
