Saunton Sands Hotel (Braunton)

Hotel overview

Saunton Sands Hotel is one of North Devon’s premier holiday venues and is the closest located hotel to the famous Saunton Golf Club. It is the reason so many refer to the famous Saunton Sands Golf Break. Often mistakenly believed to be situated on site at Saunton Golf Club, the Saunton Sands Hotel is actually part of the Brend Hotel Group and is a sister hotel to likes of Carlyon Bay Golf Resort and the Barnstaple Hotel, situated in the nearby town.

Situated just half a mile from the famous golf resort of Saunton it is the perfect place to stay if you are planning on taking a golf break at Saunton. It is, however, a pricer option and often favoured by small groups, couples and families rather than large societies. Perfect for golfers who would rather stay in close proximity to the golf course rather than in the centre of a town and experience the Saunton Sands golf tour.

For larger societies, we suggest looking at Saunton Sands sister hotels, also part of the Brend Hotel collection such as The Barnstaple, Royal & Fortescue, The Park or The Imperial. These hotels are located in the town of Barnstaple and provide an ideal location to walk out into the town in the evening.

Saunton Sands Hotel is a four-star art deco hotel which overlooks three miles of beach. Inside you’ll find smart, contemporary furnishings, AA rosette standard cooking, a large heated pool, gym and spa facilities. The hotel is experienced in dealing with golfers and will be used to working with you to ensure a smoothly run golf break.
