We've been staying here for many years now and we always have a lovely time. The facilities for families are excellent, if you enjoy fishing or just want to try it it's the perfect place and having that hot tub on your patio tops it off. The location is perfect if you want long peaceful walks in the beautiful dunes... More

We stayed in Swan cottage and our friends stayed in Heron cottage in the second week of the Easter holidays. We just have the best time at Saunton Sands Farm Cottages/Willowfield. The location is so peaceful but equally really near to Braunton so you can walk, cycle or drive there as and when required. We love cycling to Crow point... More

We stayed in Kingfisher and were so pleased to arrive to such a beautifully clean and well equipped cottage. The bathroom and kitchen as well as all the furniture was of really high quality and felt very luxurious. The location of the farm is just perfect - very close to the sand dunes (walking distance for a 2 year old)... More

I arrived home today from a wonderful week at Saunton Sands. We occupied three cottages; Mallard, Barn Owl, and Swallow (I stayed in Swallow). My elderly grandparents were on the holiday, and it was extremely helpful for us all the fact that all the cottages were on one level. All the cottages were very very well equipped and the beds...

Had a great week with the wife staying in ROBIN - a very well equipped one bedroom cottage located in this lovely part of North Devon. All of the cottages were equipped to the same high standard, so I would be happy to stay in any of them. Young families would undoubtedly have an excellent time at the farm with... More

We have really enjoyed our second stay. We got greeted by the usual hospitality touch that Stephen and Ella add to your visit like scones, cream and jam waiting for you in your cottage on the day you arrive.

An excellent holiday for children with lots to do even if the weather's bad. The pool and games room are great facilities. Very comfortable cottages in a beautiful and peaceful part of Devon. Hiring bikes on the Tarka Trail is a must as is a walk over Braunton Burrows to the beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
12 cottages with warm indoor pool and large hot tub set in the beautiful naturally tranquil surrounds of Braunton Burrows Nature Reserve, with miles of stunning golden sands and surf close by at Saunton and Croyde. A wonderful place to enjoy the glorious countryside on bike along the famous Tarka Trail or in endless walks across the unspoilt burrows and dunes that lead down to the sea at Saunton Sands. Some cottages have hot tubs or whirlpool baths to help you relax and unwind after a long day on the beach. Open all year long for long or short breaks. ... more   less
